Tea for Two<br>L'Artisan Parfumeur
L'Artisan Parfumeur's Tea for Two Eau de Toilette - Top notes of gentian, neroli, bergamot and lapsang souchong tea; middle notes of cinnamon, ginger, green anise, smoked tea and cardamom. Base notes include honey, vanilla and guaiacum wood. Full-bodied and spicy and oh, so smoky, this once-in-a-lifetime, bracingly bold tea scent stays close to the skin and lingers forever.
Tea for Two is a beautiful black tea scent, the smoky evocative aromas of lapsung-souchong in fact. This fragrance is like taking tea in an English country house in winter. A log fire is burning; tea is being served in china cups. Eating gingerbread and honeyed toast sunk in leather chairs as the walls exude their cigar tinted past and the odour of burnt leaves drifts though a barely open window. Warm and cosy, Tea for Two is a witty blend of gourmand delights and smoke tinted memory.
For all of you craving cardamom, your fix is right here. Perfumer Olivia Giacobetti concocted a wondrous blend of cardamom, honey, spices and black tea with just a drop of cream added for a truly memorable spicy/creamy experience.
The last word in comfort fragrances, this gem is warm, cashmere-y and piquant and yet does not announce its presence from a football field away.
Since the last thing Ms. Giacobetti would do is create a scent that's remotely cloying, a soupcon of smoke is quite evident in the opening. Yet when all is said and done, it�s the cardamom that hangs around with the most amazing grace...
Right! Another one for the record books. For both the guys and the gals...
