Androgynous Blue Powder
As I have already mentioned more often, I work in a tea shop and therefore know the scent of different teas very well. So far, I have not found a "tea scent" that really had an authentic teen note. The Eau Parfumée au Thé Vert smelled more like pure coumarin/hayflower/woodruff - which I happen to love, too, so I fell in love right away - but you really search in vain for real green tea notes there, too. Many other tea scents, for example the Green Tea Eau Parfumée just smell like iced tea, so primarily lemon aroma. Many tea fragrances follow this recipe and create an Earl Grey with bergamot in the top note and something tart in the base (patchouli or similar is also suitable). This is also quite nice and often smells good, but the tea is so lost in the process. I find that always such a pity, because if you sniff every day at pure tea, then you notice
what a wonderfully delicate hay-sweet, partly powder-peirisich-fruity scent of high-quality green tea has,
what a floral-pudgy, very, very delicate scent white tea has,
what a malty, bread-like, sometimes powdery, limey scent oolong tea has,
what a bright, fresh, tart-bizzy scent Darjeeling tea has
and what a dark-spicy partly sour-malty, smoky scent dark black tea (Assam, Ceylon, Java) has.
And all the flavors you add like that, lemon, orange, apricot, mango, raspberry etc. etc. just mask that and the tea loses its character.
Well, I started this comment, euphoric - you can probably guess - because Bvlgari's blue tea has a really authentic malty oolong tea note! The Se Chung Finest, an oolong tea from China, an inexpensive option, but full-bodied and of good quality. It is rarely bought, Oolong is not very well known in Germany. But there are lovers and the take then equal to half a kilo.
But, woe oh woe, the Oolong lingers unfortunately only very short. As the top note says goodbye, lavender & shiso fused to herbaceous freshness, can the lipstick accord, the iris powder nothing more the forehead offer.
Now it's getting very proper, mid-palate and shirt-blousy. Was Thé Bleu initially very unisex, a kind of powdery Fougère, for which they simply mixed women's and men's perfume from the 1920s together, it needs for the fragrance now already a man who likes powder, who loves flowers and has an androgynous charisma. (I would find the fragrance but great on a man, I like something like that).
Scents like Misia Eau de Parfum or L'Heure Bleue Eau de Parfum come to mind. For comparison, I have Misia times sprayed on: I find it actually similar, but Misia is again 5 levels above, sweeter, raspberry, elfin.
At least I understand the naming now, it's apparently to be understood as a timeline. First tea, then blue, in the form of IRISVEILCHENPUDER - capitalized, in yer face. I did wonder what blue tea was supposed to be.
I like it anyway. I haven't come across this combo before.
An echo of the lavender lingers into the heart, preventing the blue powder from becoming too feminine, a reminder of the oolong grounds the scent, keeping it grounded before it develops fairy wings.

Powdered and Peppered Palma Violet
It opens with a herbaceous freshness of Minty, Spiced Shiso Leaf with Velvety Violet and Soothing Oolong tea. The Lavender adds an aromatic undertone but is more subtle than the Violet which takes centre stage. All softened and powdered by a fluffy Iris and Musk base.
A very calm and refreshing natural scent.

Cool tea for warm days
Thé Bleu starts out spicy green (I definitely smell cardamom here), and a strong but not too masculine lavender note. The scent impression is cool, but not harshly refreshing, not energizing or stimulating, but like a fresh breath of perhaps a fountain or waterfall almost imperceptibly carried over by the wind. In no time, the lavender retreats, leaving behind a velvety soft veil of violet petals and iris. I also recognise the green tea accord familiar from Thé Vert breits here, but some reviewers find it more black tea. Since Oolong tea, depending on the variety can resemble green OR black tea in taste, I find the implementation of this fragrance very exciting, and obviously succeeded.

The iris gives the whole a cool powderiness throughout and finally merges with the violet to a base that always remains airy through the delicate musk note and never seems gloomy, oppressive or overly "vintage".

The sillage is decent from the beginning and close to the body, also the durability is unfortunately moderate.

I find this cool tea ideal for warm days, no sticky sweet iced tea, but a gentle floral, slightly tart refreshment.

The last tea in the Bvlgari bunch
After years of abstinence from Parfumo, I'm now going to let myself be carried away by a comment.

After I had been quite enthusiastic about all three other Bvlgari tea flavours in the last years, I was looking forward to testing the fourth one (new for me because I was absent for a long time!). Blind purchase, of course. The others were not disappointed either.

They cannot deny the kinship, although they also differ significantly.

All four are very pleasing, static, unobtrusive, fresh and clean fragrances. You definitely get what you expect. My classification, on the surface:
- green relative tart
- red fruity
- white puristic and slightly less harsh than green
- and blue powdery.

Thé Bleu starts with pure black tea (it will probably be oolong, I can't tell the difference), I notice it clearly, then it becomes directly soft-powdery, which one should attribute to the iris. Lavender and its spicy herbaceous note I unfortunately, unfortunately not at all notice, just as little I smell my beloved musk. I feel it a bit (!) tart, then creamy-powdery and a bit flowery, but not too clearly. I don't like floral scents at all, but here it is not too disturbing and present. Sometimes I can hardly notice a development.

Sillage and durability not very pronounced, also similar to the other three fragrances of the series, all quite close to the body.

That must now be enough for the first commentary on the re-entry, I have not yet fully arrived.

But unfortunately I don't need to get used to this scent either, because as I read, it will be discontinued soon. This curse seems to stick to me..

Powder in tea
Powdery is the main characteristic of this fragrance - at least for me. I like that a lot, as long as the powder doesn't slide into that washing powder sting. Thé Bleu kindly turns into a floral direction just before that. The oolong tea probably helps a lot with this, bringing a soft peach loveliness to the scent. The shiso leaf adds a slight tart hint for a short while, so the scent doesn't become sweet at all. Which I wouldn't claim to be able to detect shiso leaf. I just don't know where else that slightly tart tang would come from. The lavender lacks any herbaceous associations. Almost unnoticed by me, it says goodbye and passes the baton to violets and iris, which together with the musk hold up the floral powder flag.

The shelf life is good with 5 - 6 hours with me, I've gotten into the habit in the early afternoon to spray again. The sillage I perceive as rather weak, I have the feeling rather a gentle aura around me to feel.

"Eau Parfumée au Thé Bleu" is well suited for spring and summer and suitable for everyday use for all occasions.

I do not feel a compulsion to add TB to my collection now, but I can imagine it enriching my collection at some point.

I thank Veilchen75 for the test opportunity.

Caution, Hot!
In my commentary on Eau Parfumée au Thé Vert and in my blog "Berliner Duftspaziergänge Folge 6" I wrote a few words about Bulgari's series of tea colours. Here I would like to summarise once again that Bulgari - stretched over years and decades respectively - commissioned five very different perfumers to develop something on the subject of "tea", each for one colour: white, black and green for the corresponding tea varieties, red for redbush tea and blue for oolong. Three of the five, including this one, are to be discontinued this year, and I'm really glad that I've secured another bottle of it.

What my three precommentators have written about this fragrance is all right; and yet I would like to contradict on one point - or at least bring a new aspect into play. For me this blue tea is not (only) a calming, meditative scent, but (rather) incredibly exciting and exciting! Tea scents are often very beautiful, but somehow mild, gentle, fresh and nice, which I don't want to say about this one. And if the "coolness", which this blue tea (perhaps also because it is a refreshing summer scent and because of the bottle reminiscent of fogged up ice) is said to have also its justification, then I find it first of all really hot!

I find the scents rather unconventionally arranged, and yet they result in a wonderful dynamic unity. First of all (and I would also like to disagree if it is said here occasionally that one hardly feels the tea): The smoky Oolong tea, standing between black and green tea, has bitterly bitter and fresh notes: Therefore it stands absolutely rightly in the name and in the centre of the fragrance! It can be clearly felt in both aspects and the other notes are congenially grouped around it and dock, so to speak, at both ends of the oolong scent. The iris with its astringency (I hardly notice the "powdery" aspect here) and the lavender with its oscillation between flower freshness and earthy bitterness, the almost citric fresh shiso leaf and the flowery, but not too sweet, but also rather serious violet. It's all just perfect. And, as already mentioned before, here not only the nose is served, but also the head: blue flowers (lavender, violet...) belong to a blue tea as well, of course.

So we have here a very, very special tea smell, very blue, very fresh and at the same time in a striking (almost strict) way tart and (quite pleasantly) bitter. In spite of its Cologne character and the moderate (but by no means minimalistic) durability and sillage associated with it, the fragrance definitely appears pithy and full of substance. And although he has three quarters female fans in all the statistics here, I find him quite masculine. A friend of mine, who is very gender-conservative with fragrances and doesn't like feminine fragrances on me, found this one to be a real hit with her.

In short: people (especially boys), save the remaining stock!

Addendum to the bottle: "Aesthetically, I'm not quite as enthusiastic about the container as many people here are, but functionally, I am. I may never have used a great sprayer like this before.

Addendum on the perfumer: The (German) perfumer Daniela Andrier is not one of the names that are repeatedly discussed here as top perfumers, but she is listed at Parfumo with 138 (!) fragrances, which upgrade an average rating of 7.8 after all. She is not only responsible for dozens of fragrances, even entire collections, by Prada and Bulgari, but also some fragrances by Yves Saint Laurent, Ermengildo Zegna and Bottega Veneta, as well as the famous Angélique Noire by Guerlain and a fragrance by each of the niche suppliers Etat Libre d'Orange and Maison Margiela. If I say that Marie Le Fèbvre just told the FAZ that it took her 10 years to develop "Dark Vanilla"... But well, the master will have worked in the time also on other projects parallel. Anyway, I hope Mrs Andrier has good contracts, preferably with a sales commission on the fragrances she designs. Then she should be well taken care of..

Blue Flowers & Ming Bling-Bling
The fragrance opens with a rich blue floral scent, strong lavender and velvety violet. This lovely fragrance is invigorated by the citric freshness of the shiso leaf known from Japanese cuisine. Soon the iris joins, whose powderiness is loosened up by the Shiso freshness. Lavender, violet and iris, that's all flower power. Where is the tea, the actual theme of perfume?

The Oolong tea, called as an ingredient, has less tannin and is more aromatic than black tea and represents the royal class of Chinese tea. During the tea ceremony, it is sipped from small cups in a highly concentrated form in order to enjoy the long finish - similar to red wine. Thé bleu, however, contains only a thin Western infusion, delicate flowery and hardly perceptible as a separate note. This turns it into a pleasing matte brown background lightened by musk, which connects the floral notes and gives the whole a creamy touch.

Thé bleu is a rather simple fragrance that unfolds in its entirety within a few minutes and then remains almost unchanged. Meanwhile, it is precisely this floating clarity that makes him special. A successful perfume with a wellness feeling.

In addition to this, the music skilfully plays with manifold associations to blue. Lavender as relaxation factor par excellence, the blue flower as a symbol of romantic yearning, endless sky blue, pure water blue and egg shell delicate tea crockery with Far Eastern motifs in Chinese Ming blue.

Zen. Quiet. Beauty. Transience. Eternity. Relaxation.

Tea on that.

A unisex scent very fresh and relaxing.Well balanced (the lavender isn't too strong). Average sillage for being a perfumed water. High price
