A light note of tea and minimally bitter hot cocoa develops slowly at the beginning. The tea is actually more in the background, is spite of the name of this product; it is a weak milky and rather nondescript tea.

Fairly soon after the start a vanilla develops, mixed with some tonka. Faintly herbal undertone appears transiently. A very restrained smooth and slightly sweet pipe tobacco is added at a later stage.

I get moderate sillage, good projection, and six hours of longevity on my skin.

Not bad as a scent for warmer autumn days, but the notes have an unfortunate tendency towards being a bit anaemic and lacking vibrancy. Furthermore, I cannot get any convincing Oolong in here. Where is my Bulgari Black?
2.5/5.

I must agree with my fellow reviewer, drussell41, that I also felt that "Oolong Tea" by Jo Malone doesn't do justice to that exotic, smoked black tea note.

I have enjoyed oolong as a note in Bulgari's Black unisex scent, and I have enjoyed Twining's Oolong Tea cups. Personally, I KNOW what it is I am looking for, but - alas - I don't find it here.:-/

A nice scent, but don't call it Oolong Tea.

They have adulterated the tea scent with too many other notes. It's not that it isn't a pleasant fragrance; it's that the oolong tea note is lost. I have drank many cups of oolong teas, including many that were very floral, and this fragrance is much more blended perfume than tea. Notes: cocoa, tonka, hay and tobacco. In fact, it reminds me more of Volutes than any tea I've ever had.
