Time is money?
What a beautiful, refreshing tea scent! Fans of tea scents know that a good one is difficult to find; well, House of Oud’s The Time is a good one. The opening of bergamot, chamomile, and wormwood note creates a superb green tea impression, uniquely fresh and bitter, but with a nutty hay-like undertone. Slowly, other types of tea notes start to feed into the scent, helping to round out the picture and fill in the gaps. Oolong tea adds a milkiness that softens the astringency of the green tea, rendering it cloudy, while a black tea note lends a smoky leathery nuance. Together, the combination of the different teas gives the scent a subtle “roasted” undertone.

The ticking of the clocks
Misty tea fields and a gently rippling brook run through a somewhat unreal looking scenery...

Once again my head is somewhere else. Everywhere and nowhere, as long as it is not here in the daily grind and ordinary. I want to go out into the world, jump into an airplane in an unknown country and direction of unknown adventures to feel that I am alive, to feel what I felt nochnie.

Especially during the current crisis, I had a lot of time to think... Less about life itself, but more about transience. In 20 years I will probably not remember every evening on the couch, but the days that meant something special. Does it even matter how long we live? Or is it only important how much we experience in the end?

What's certain is that everything would be boring if it was forever
And this brings me to the fragrance itself: it is a wonderfully moist smelling tea scent with fruity elements and a very light green twist in the aftertaste. Not like a CK One or similar but very unique and special. The iris is presented very differently than I would have ever smelled this note before. Not powdery and creamy, but somehow soaked and sparkling. Almost a little "chanelingy", if you know what I mean by that. Very noble and natural.

There is not much development. The fruit will eventually become the root and the tea will become warmer and less pointed over time, if that is the right word for it.
The durability and sillage are really remarkable for the type of fragrance: 3 hours with good projection and another 3 at about half an arm length to ¾. But all in all the theatre is over after 8 hours, which is a very acceptable performance for such a decent scent.
The bottles at THoOO are in a class of their own anyway... Every single egg is unique and is coated by hand with many layers of different colours. Especially in the light it looks really impressive. I would even go so far as to say that these could be the highest quality flacons in the entire industry.
Whether one finds the slightly kitschy to crisply gaudy color spectrum so great is a matter of taste that even here seems to divide minds... But they are always impressive.

Space egg with iris of a different kind
Well, now AugustA has tested him...
An extremely gentle beginning, quietly surrounded by other tones of iris mist rises from the skin. That smells good beyond recognition, unbelievably light. But before you can be disappointed and shrug your shoulders, the cool green vervain steps up and brings a freshness that almost makes you sneeze. The top note works like this: Where is it, the fragrant, unmistakably almost non-existent iris? One immediately adjusts to a transparent, perhaps grey iris scent, imagines it more than one smells it and then suddenly the scent mates with a note that is really unusual to the iris. This is a slightly different top note strategy, none of the usual buy-me-lassos.

It comes out quite well on me within a few minutes. From disbelieving looking frowning to ah-soo! facial expression everything in it.

The vervain lies around the iris. It gets citric, in any case herbaceous. Some soap's just holding back. Mildly fresh: Camomile with bergamot and wormwood I did not errochen, but read, but now I can imagine something under it. It's got something bitter, soothing, citrus-floral. The iris root penetrates the freshness again with a woody tone and it now also becomes slightly powdery or fresh creamy.

After about half an hour, the fragrance has unfolded, so that one is lulled in with a certain calm satisfaction and can smell good despite all the heat that currently prevails outside. This fragrance relaxes and remains attractive. It has more of an olfactory quality than head cinema or scent paintings. This certainly doesn't fit (to) everyone, but AugustA just for a change times well.

Blue is the planetary-intergalactic-stellar egg covered by seas, completely covered - yes, I know, the egg is actually a disc - which calls itself a bottle, at least until something completely unpredictable hatches out. I think it's so wrong, I can't leave it uncommented. These flacons of HoO are really completely cheesy, at the border to the bearable, sorry, that had to get out at this point. But a veritable eye-catcher in perfumery, hat off to the designer who dared to do so.

And blue shall also be the tea. I can guess a tannic teeny note. Strengthens somehow and reconciles loosely with the Kosmo egg. Yeah, the color's great. I almost like it already.
In any case, blue matches my perception of the fragrance, it becomes increasingly calm, airy like the wide sky. Besides, he's kind of serious, but encouraging.
After about 5 hours, the iris verbena veil turns into an increasingly woody, slightly synthetic fresh, spicy-warm ambroxan base, which - who would have thought it - reminds of Molecule 02. This base fits well here, it is a mixture of warm skin and fresh golden wood tones that gradually fade away.
At the end: An iris composition of a different kind. Actually, no iris at all.
