Hello folks! Here I am again, telling you today about another fragrance. Today it's about one of the new flankers of Elizabeth Arden's White Tea fragrance, which had inspired me very much at that time, because... well, hello? tea fragrance? Of course the scent inspired me :D
Of course I had complained at that time about the absolute seamiserablen Sillage, because I am always somehow at the complaining (There is coriander in it!) It's too hot! I don't have a girlfriend! Doofe drink tea WITH milk in it! Nobody's gonna let me bite them! It's too hot! I have already mentioned the last one, but the extremely hot summer really annoys me a lot, moan moan moan moan, and tomorrow it will be especially brutal!!!), but apart from that White Tea has been an excellent and for tea scent lovers highly recommendable white tea scent :)
So, I would never have thought that White Tea would become a new fragrance series now, since this year two Flankers have appeared in addition! Wild Rose and Vanilla Orchid! And it was so obvious that I had to test those scents. And that's why I finally did it. On my way to the perfume shop (actually a drugstore) I saw all the scents standing next to each other, so it was a great opportunity to compare all three scents. So I grabbed the flacons, waited until the last woman was about 1 km away (there are women's fragrances and, as you know, NO ONE is allowed to see me spray a women's fragrance! D) and sprayed me then fully!
And it was a lot of fun to be able to test these tea scents, even if the scent here, Wild Rose, was olfactory the weakest scent of this scent series, at least in my opinion. So here is my opinion:
The scent starts for a moment like the normal white tea (but without the tangerine aroma), where you can perceive a very weak, white tea, but then you soon smell a slightly sour rose that smells like roses do. The roses are not too intense like in some other fragrances, but they are still the strongest fragrance in this fragrance and can be smelled very well.
At the beginning, the tea scent of the roses is clearly superimposed from time to time, so that now and then one has difficulties to perceive the white tea or also the mate. Besides, there's a nice little sweetheart coming from the amber.
A little later the amber gets weaker, so that for a little while you only notice roses again, until they lose a little intensity, where you can smell the tea better again. In the end, the fragrance still smells of sour flowery roses, but also a bit of tea and mate and is generally not very sweet. The scent is nice, but also not soo special.
The Sillage and the shelf life:
The scent is truly no firecracker, but at least clearly stronger than the beautiful, but unfortunately admittedly sillagemäßig sauschlechte normal white tea. Because at least I myself could perceive this scent every now and then without having to sniff close to my arm, so the scent will still be reasonably good for others to smell from close up. The durability is also much better. While one could hardly smell the normal White Tea after two hours, one can perceive Wild Rose six hours or even a little longer on the skin.
The bottle is rectangular and has a beautiful gradient from white to transparent (and from top to bottom). The name of the fragrance is written in pink at the bottom of the bottle. The neck of the bottle is gold-plated, the rectangular lid is white. A beautiful bottle that also fits well in the hand.
Soo, that was the first Flanker of White Tea I tried here. I didn't like the fragrance as much as the normal White Tea, which might be due to the roses, because they were too normal for me and a little bit boring for 0815. The normal White Tea, on the other hand, had a much nicer scent of great tea, even if you could only perceive the scent very briefly and also very weakly. But this one is now more than twice as good, both from the Sillage and from the durability, even if this should not be so noticeable in the beginning.
If I hadn't also tried the much better vanilla orchid at the same time, I would say that the waiting time of about four hours before the shelf, until all the women were finally gone so that I could test the scent, had been completely in vain, hey he :D
But seriously, the fragrance is rather mediocre and will probably only be moderately well received. For tea lovers the tea here smells too little or the smell too rosy, even if you should smell the tea a little better towards the end. And for rose lovers the rose here is too 0815-rosig and therefore nothing special. It's a pity, but well, as I said, there's the Vanilla Orchid, which I'll probably introduce here in the coming week, so be patient a little longer, have a cup of tea (in this heat it's better to go and have a lukewarm tea), play with the hangover and complain about upcoming hot days (as I, ouch, tomorrow it's hotter than on the surface of the sun, baaaaaaah!!!!!!!!!)
