No, I don't want to drink the foam off your tea!!! Igiiiiiitt!!!!!
Hey hey, once again I'm trying a tea scent today. But, hey, I haven't introduced a scent with tea here in a while, have I? The last one was probably a few weeks ago (I think it was the new Hermès fragrance Eau de Citron Noir).

Especially when I recently watched various tea ceremonies and preparation methods on YouTube (or read them in Wikipedia), I felt like having tea and tea scents again. Anyway, there are an infinite number of ways to make tea in the many different cultures. That's interesting to see or to read,... but... one thing I would never do anyway: To drink tea from street vendors in Mauritania or in countries with similar tea culture... not that the tea would be bad (green tea, mostly refined with mint sounds great in itself!!), but for the Mauritanians the foam is extremely important in the tea. So that you don't have to create it again and again, the foam once created is kept in the glass, ... so far so good! While that is no problem with an invitation by the host, since everyone would have his own glass, this foam is kept with street vendors even the whole time in the glass,...
...and of course for the next and the following customer!!!!! So the glasses are not washed out or something, but simply refilled. You can now call me effeminate, but I find that so from bööööörks!!! To share a glass with someone is one thing, but also to share the foam of a liquid with strangers, who knows how many people have sucked and slobbered... no, I'm a bit sensitive! :DD

This is not different in some things in villages of my culture (Turkey): There are bowls with Ayran or Cacik passed around, where everyone drinks from the same bowl... buuuaaah, something like that is really nothing for me, calls me calmly spoiled, but no no no.... :DD

Anyway, I'm finally getting to the scent!

The fragrance:
The fragrance begins with beautiful and refreshing green tea, which smells slightly bitter but nice. Mint is an excellent accompaniment (no wonder that in Morocco, for example, mint is always added to green tea!).
In my opinion the roses are only very weakly present, so that one hardly notices these soon still, since the tart notes smell more strongly.
A very slight sweetness germinates afterwards, but it is difficult to determine at first whether this sweetness comes from jasmine, amber or musk. Later, however, one "sees" that it was probably because of the musk, since this fragrance is smellable in the base. What I think is good is the green tea, which can still be smelled from the base and doesn't disappear after the top note like some fragrances do.
Green tea, light woody notes and slightly sweet musk are the main fragrances in the base. They may not smell particularly creative, but they do smell light and fragrant. Tea fans will love the scent in any case!

The Sillage and the shelf life:
Oh, yeah... sometimes with these scents, the Sillage is a real crying place. Because it only smells good at the beginning, and only for a few minutes. Shortly thereafter the intensity decreases further and further, so that it soon becomes difficult to smell the scent at the sprayed place. So I think that others will not smell the scent on you, unless you press one quite firmly :D
But the durability is quite okay, the scent stays loose for at least six hours, actually even more on the skin, but then it is naturally close to the body, so that it hardly smells when you wag your arms like wild (if you sprayed it on your arms, otherwise you just wiggle your whole body... yeah, shake it, baby! :DDD).

The bottle:
The bottle is cylindrical and clear. A simple label sticks to it, but it also shows a stylized flower in addition to the name of the fragrance. The lid is cylindrical and black. Everything's not very exciting, it's just okay.

Yeah, I liked that tea smell. It is a nice green tea scent, which smells a bit harsh at the beginning and becomes slightly sweeter later, but the sweetness is really rather limited. In my opinion, the fragrance is a light summer fragrance that can be sprayed on everywhere and at any time (even in larger quantities or higher dosages). Because the Sillage is weak, so that he should not annoy others also with higher dosage. It may not be suitable for going out, but it is a scent that you can use at work, in your free time or just to relax if you want to have a light, nice tea scent in your nose from time to time.

Especially in summer it can do you good if you lie lazily in a hammock (if available), in a lounger in the garden (if available) or just in bed (uh... if available? :DD).
And by the favorable price of the smell one can do here nothing wrong, one must simply only green and/or tart smells with tea in it like
