Tea shower at sunset and spa of my soul
Yes, that's right, take it with you into the sauna and spray yourself after you have sweated profusely and cooled down in the ice water. In your robe, eyes closed. Try it out and tell me who hasn't fallen in love.
I do not share Tea for Two, this is my very personal retreat, I will definitely drink it alone.
The first sprayers are spicy and powerful, energizing, flavoring, stimulating. Then it becomes calm, resonates with my heart, with my soul. Yes, he is very special and unique, just like me. Just a guy. A character. We are universally connected, love at first sight and forever.
The fact that you want to spray it on more often is not a disadvantage, the fragrance works like an ASMR trigger.
Black tea and snow. As a native Siberian, Tea for Two brings these quiet moments of my homeland to the heart of Europe. My sister also had her first time under my nose...she closed her eyes, took a deep breath and put the test strip on her neck to get as much as possible.
You bury such scents so they never go out. You think about them when you get up in the morning and go to bed at night.

En Voyage chez l'Artisan Perfumer: 4 Tea for Two - Tea for types
Tea scents are not mine per se. They often smell the same to me and to me they usually seem as if they have to be "crampy" fresh. In my experience, they are only worn by perfume-savvy mothers. As I was allowed to observe a disastrous prejudice.
In the opening, tea is not in the foreground I smell Christmas spice, cheekily biting ginger, soft suede, tobacco. I think of an elderly lady sitting in the neat but somewhat musty cloth seats of her old car. This is, however, already accompanied here by the hardly recognizable but central note of the fragrance: tea leaves. And here you can distinguish it from other tea scents, very clearly there is a wet, somewhat old tea brew, which actually makes you salivate in your mouth when you smell it. I didn't know that until now.
In the course of time, the pungent spiciness of ginger diminishes and the tanning agents of Assam become more central. Something like sucking on loose tea, only softer. Floral blossoms join them, which make me think of mild soap. Although not listed here, I could swear to perceive some amber. Towards the heart it becomes subtly sweeter, the vanilla pod gets its appearance. Then she dives down again and disappears. Slowly the tea cools down, dries completely, becomes almost powdery. The dry wood smell of an earth sauna is added to this As you will notice, Tea for Two is characterized by incredible abundance and changeability, like the smell of a small sleepy shop where tea is piled up to the ceiling on dusty shelves for thousands. And in this shop, there's no ventilation as a matter of principle, so projection and durability are right.
I would never in my life have expected such a spice, almost bordering on the oriental. In fact, I'd recommend it to men more than women. So, tea for guys Thank you very much for reading my comment.

"Would you like an advanture now ...
... or shall we have tea first?"
This is the question "Alice in Wonderland" asks, and it fits well as a "hook" for this commentary.

It's not the right time for adventure, nor the right weather; changeable as it is today, it's better to stay at home.
The snow shower has moved off, but it is very blustery and a nice cup of tea is always appropriate.
For me, it's classic Darjeeling today, if only to better show off the flavors of the Easter egg-shaped macarons that a kind neighbor put in my Easter nest.
He knew that these have been on my wish list for some time, even without having read my comment on "Champs-Élysées" here.

"Tea for Two" by L'Artisan Parfumeur is anything but a classic.
Although the base is a smoky lapsang souchong tea that already has enough personality of its own, to create a special tea scent, bergamot and a rich assortment of "hot" spices were added.
I don't detect orange blossom, contrary to the scent pyramid here; gentian for spice and warmth I briefly perceive.
Particularly strongly dominates star anise (happy we are both rarely with each other) the spice mixture of allspice, cloves and cinnamon. All heat up properly.
Already by this "Tea for Two" is for me a fragrance for the cooler, even cold season.
Together with the smoky tea aroma creates a little oven on my skin, with ginger again something bizzles in the nose.
That's why the dose of honey does me good; it slightly mitigates the power of the spice front, which builds up in front of me like a big wave, though I can't ride it.
Tobacco goes into a good liaison with a not too strong, but still well suited to the fragrance development leather nuance.
Vanilla is another family member of the exotic spices; although already incorporated by the perfumers. She may not be missing, of course.

"Tea for Two" is a smoky-spicy fragrance composition, in which deep and both hands were reached into the spice box.
It reminds of a hot cup of tea, which can provide warmth and comfort at the right time.
Like all tea fragrances, this creation by L'Artisan Parfumeur is not too long-lasting, although it immediately spreads over a large area of the skin.

For me, this "tea scent expedition" was an adventure, and its spices presented me with great challenges. My pepper allergy claps its hands enthusiastically.
But that is by no means the sole determining criterion for the relatively low rating.
As a lover of classic teas and yet quite critical user of tea fragrances, has me "Tea for Two" just a bit overwhelmed.
I had to learn once again that even fragrances that are highly and lovingly rated are not necessarily for me.

So I prefer to stick to the old song of the same title:
"Picture you upon my knee, just tea for two and two for tea.
Just me and you and you and me, alone!"
And with that, invite "Old blue Eyes" Frank Sinatra to my private tea party: it'll be an adventure!
(Says Alice!)

beautiful spicy tea
The first few times I tried it, T42 was just smoky, with no nuances. When my nose adapted to it, I fell in love. Now, it makes me think of an orange-red-brown ombre teacup (does such a thing exist?) of spicy chai with a sugar cube dissolving in it. It's in the same league with the wonderful Une Crime Exotique by Parfumerie Generale, though it has a bit more smoke and less sugar. I wear it to bed in depths of winter. Yum. (042609)

Dry, leafy smoke up top balanced with vanilla in the base and a touch a cinnamon. Simple, but a superb layering fragrance. A love for me.
