    Default Favorite tea scent

    Mine is Tea for Two... and I also love Masque Milano Russian Tea.
    FYI: I spray all fragrances on clothing, never on skin.

    The original Tommy Girl. It was also the fragrance my grandmother wore so has some sentimental value.

    Yet to find a scent that truly captures tea, but honorable mention to
    Neroli Outrenoir, Osmanthe Yunnan, and Oolang Infini

    Oolang infini in particular because it doesn’t shy away from the woodier and more astringent aspects of tea. Most tea scents are either a wan And watery lemon tea thing or use the tobacco like aspects of cheap dry black tea as a supporting note.
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    Cactus Garden. One of the few I bought a 200ml of, and that was because of the tea.

    Nailed it in one.

    I'm also very fond of Miller Harris Tea Tonique, which doesn't smell very strongly of tea to me but has it there in the name.

    Green Tea 1900 by CO Bigelow.

    Jasmine infused green tea with tenacity but not overbearing. It’s vibrant, unisex and unfortunately tough to find.

    My other faves are Gucci PH II and 5 o’clock au Gingembre by Lutens
    I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.

    I think my favorite tea scent is Jack Hunter's favorite.....Murdock Black Tea. My wife also likes it a lot, and it is one of the few fragrances I have actually gotten a compliment on from a stranger in public. It's pure class. (By the way, where is Jack? Haven't seen him around for months!)

    I also enjoy L'Artisan's Tea for Two, but I think I might enjoy another lesser known tea fragrance by L'Artisan even more....Coeur de Vetiver Sacre. Very nice, but discontinued.

    Just smelled Tea for Two a few days ago and I like it a lot! Can you say something about its performance? I assume it‘s not extremely long lasting, is it?

    Great topic. I'm still really trying to associate Russian Tea with actual tea. I haven't gotten there yet, and associate it more with a confection than a tea. I really want to get my nose on Tea for Two.

    I'll be watching this for some other ideas.

    Haven't sampled any of these mentioned, except for silver mountain water which I didn't recognize as a tea scent. Tea Shop by VORONOI was very convincing in the opening but not really a good scent. My favourite is the jasmine tea in Macaque

    Agreed, to me SMW is nothing like a tea scent at all.
