Light, Slightly Sweet, Jasmine & Tea
Anthropologie is constantly coming up with new limited edition perfume ventures with a variety of different, often obscure, houses. The series in which 5 O'CLOCK AT BELVOIR CASTLE figures includes a set of scents united by their tea note. They all come in adorable faux-book box packaging and look great lined up next to each other on a bookshelf. The boxes are very well-constructed and sturdy and even have magnet closures which make a nice noise as they snap shut. So how are the perfumes?

5'OCLOCK AT BELVOIR CASTLE is a slightly sweet tea scent with a dominant but faint jasmine note. That's not a contradiction, because this is a light scent, despite its eau de parfum claim. The perfumes in this series show the perfumer's name on the spine of the book-box cover, another nice touch, and a way of giving some credit where credit is due. Stephen Nilsen designed this perfume, and although it's not earthshatteringly original, it smells good, for what it is.

Tea scents are generally not my favorites, but this perfume combines tea with jasmine in a pleasing way to produce a scent close to designer in composition--albeit quite a bit less sweet than many--but much more natural feeling and smelling than most. According to the box, the notes of this composition are:

top: zesty bergamot, dewy fresh notes
middle: narcotic jasmine, sultry red rose
bottom: sandalwood patchouli, moss, tonka bean

To my nose, the take-away is really tea + jasmine + tonka

I'm not going to lament the short-lived shelf-life of these Anthropologie limited editions, because they are perfectly in keeping with my newly adopted approach to perfume: here today, gone tomorrow! I've given up on reformulations, and I dislike flankers, so this sort of creation and approach is right up my alley.
