Assam of India is an intriguingly spicy black tea with lemon scent. The light and buoyant lemon citrus balances the strong, full tea note, and a touch of Mysore sandalwood’s honeyed sweetness swirled into the herbal zest is the perfect touch to complete this deep, rich, and contemplative perfume.

3.8 out of 5
I love how different this is from anything I’ve used before. Smells like a fresh cup of earl grey tea with a slice of lemon. I found that I have to reapply it often or it does fade out.
i was not familiar with with this brand but it smells beautiful
Did agree with my boy sent
beautiful soft sexy elegant
Absolute favorite so far
Gave as a gift.
Can I get this again this was one of my most loved.
25 to 34
Dont skip this one.. i cant describe it but its sexy and beautiful
Fun and cheerful
This really smells like black tea with lemon. I would prefer a bit stronger tea note, but at least it's real! Has a citrus opening. As it drys, a soft indian sandalwood glows.This is a simple, happy, and refreshing scent. I find it works once the temps hit the low 60's all the way up. It tends to fade after a few hours aside from the sandalwood, which lasts about 6 hours on me.For what it is, it's beautiful!
Love! A fun, Unique scent! Would only wear in the summer tho.
I did not care for the way this particular perfume mixed with my skin. It smelled great in the tube but once on me it just didn’t smell the same...
I forgot that I already tried this one.
This fragrance is so amazing!! At first I was reluctant and then I fell in love with it. It smells like a cozy cup of tea, which probably doesn’t sound like something you want to smell like but then it has this sweet note at the end that perfects it. It doesn’t last as long as Id like but it will make a great spring summer and even fall scent for sure!!
Really liked the tea undertones.
Like sweet tea on a warm day.

Lipton iced tea
I got a very strong lemony scent from this fragrance with a touch of something else. It felt very one-dimensional.
To spicy smelling

Unusual, but good
Well, it smells exactly like lemon and tea and sandalwood, but... Not all at once. It shifts as you wear it. Several people have stopped me to compliment it and ask what it is. Longevity is decent. Despite the shifting scent, it's not very complex, which is why I gave 4 stars. Still good enough that I'd get it again
I really REALLY wanted to like this perfume but it was so strong and too much!! All i could smell was like a crisp envelope lined with lemon. So hard to mimic what it smelled like but a i hate it
55 to 64
I was initially intrigued by the described notes of this fragrance. It is my go-to fragrance and I wear this if I am undecided on my "mood for the day." It is sensual without being too heavy for the office. I really like it and am glad that I ordered it. Will possibly purchase a full bottle.
Good at First and then soapy
As mentioned. It does smell like a nice cup of good black tea and lemon at first but then it gets really soapy smelling. Kinda sad
25 to 34
At first I was a little worried because i don't usually go for none floral scents but this is amazing. The smell of the sandalwood and black tea together is what hits you first and then the lemon comes in with a hint of patchouli and it is just a clean wonderful scent that I wear all the time for work in the summer.
25 to 34
This scent smells exactly like tea. It is also spicy. It is a light scent. It didn't stink but it won't be something I put into rotation.
45 to 54
Beautiful Summer Scent ~ Light & Sexy!!
Light, sensual, complex fragrance. I love the Tea notes which create earthy, sensual notes that anchors the fragrance. The sandalwood and citrus add defining and complex layers to this fragrance. Of all of the samples I have received to date, this is the only one that I went on to purchase full size. I love it, I wish it had a longer dry down but you can still get lovely hints of the fragrance throughout the day. It is perfect for summer! Light & Sexy!
25 to 34
I wasn't sure how I was going to like this one, but it is my new favorite. The scent lasts a while too. I smell the tea more than anything else.
35 to 44
Reminds me of southern sweet tea on a summer's day
I was curious as to how this scent was going to smell but I absolutely LOVE it. The tea and lemon notes are light and not overpowering. Perfect scent for summer.
35 to 44
I love this scent. It’s so feminine!!
18 to 24
I love this scent. The lemon stands out to me and it smells very fresh and clean. I’ll probably end up buying a bottle.

Assam of India
Oh boy, I am loving this one! Bright lemon and tannic, slightly bitter black tea make this super refreshing and perfect for the summer weather that is headed my way. My only complaint is the lasting power. It fades pretty quickly, unfortunately.
35 to 44
Where's the tea?
This was a typical perfumery citrus scent and I did not get much tea at all. Every time I put this on I'm disappointed by how generic it smells. It's not bad by any means, it's just not interesting or anywhere as exotic as the description suggests.
55 to 64
Too much gardenia
Berdoues perfume is OK It has a lot of gardenia smell which is really too strong for me. I was expecting more citrus and less gardenia. If you like more strong, floral smell, you will like this.
35 to 44
A little too citrusy to remind me of India
Felt this was an okay perfume for a casual day. Didn’t feel like it captured any sandalwood tones as I was hoping for.
This scent is light, powdery and a little sweet. It smells like the best sweet tea you ever had!
35 to 44
Beyond love this!
Subtle, grounding, and sensual.
55 to 64
Assam of India
It took a few times wearing this sent for me to decide if I liked it. If you want a unique scent that isn't like every other scent you will love it. I have decided I like it a lot. Try it a few times before you give up. It really is a nice scent.
35 to 44
Clean and bright!
I'm quite sensitive to overly sweet or floral fragrances. This one is very clean and bright. Low notes of amber and high notes of lemon. Very strong at first, but quickly mellows to a very nice, mild scent. Reminiscent of detergent, but not soapy, if that makes sense. I love it!
55 to 64
Not bad at all!
25 to 34
This is a very fresh scent but it smells like the cheap lemon water that come in the children's makeup kits. It is long lasting so that is a sliver lining for this perfume.
35 to 44
Warm and bright
This is a perfectly balanced and simple scent. The deep, rich black tea notes are a charming partner to the clean fresh lemon zest. The spicy sandlewood encircles the balanced pair in a comfy hug. It is not sweet, which is wonderful. Sophisticated and simple.
25 to 34
5 stars 🖒

So Fresh! I really think this will be a go to! Great fresh after shower spray! love it!
35 to 44
This scent smells like a sweet black tea with lemon, one of my favorite drinks. Very different from what I usually go for. I havent taken it for a spin yet but I'm excited to!
25 to 34
Lemony tea smell
I like this scent. I had the Fizzy Tea by Lily Prune perfume I loved years ago and this smells very similar to it. It's mostly a sweet, lemony type of fragrance on my skin. I can see why people would think it might smell like floor cleaner but this is not the case on me. I just mostly smell the lemony tea smell.
35 to 44
Love the scent, doesn't last
Lovely lemon tea scent but has no staying power.
A little goes alone way
Strong scent a little goes a long way.
Very unique scent, I love it and find it very calming
I loved this sample. My favorite so far.
Pleasantly lingering but not overpowering especially for my sensitive sense of smell during migraines! I don’t usually enjoy notes of sandalwood, but this fragrance is proving me a fan!
Iced tea with lemon
This didn't strike me as anything special until I wore it on a warmer winter day in the south.I didn't care for it as much when it was below 50 degrees outside. I believe it is definitely a late spring or summer scent. My mother had a fit over this scent and with her chemistry can wear it anytime. It's very interesting to me how different times of the year can affect how you feel about a perfume.
Very similar to Green Tea Intense
If anyone is an OG fan of the Green Tea line from Elizabeth Arden this scent is almost identical to Intense. Smells very strongly of green tea with some subtle citrus towards the end. Really great perfume for work.
I love ❤️
This scent surprised me completely, I got so many compliments it’s now my exotic favorite.
I don't like the scent at all.
Summery sweet tea
This is a wonderful scent - the tea and lemon stand out distinctly and it lasts all day. It is refreshing and bright.
Smelled very good, different than I expected
I love this perfume
I don't know if this would be a perfume for everyone but I adore it. I think it is described accurately and it smells fresh but weathered, not like soap or like you are wearing perfume, just a very atmospheric scent. Really unique.
I wanted to like this, I even wore it for a day but ended up washing it off. Smells like lemon scented floor cleaner. Not a fan, at least on me.
Not what I expected
It does indeed smell good but there was a much spicier kick than I was expecting
Spicy but clean
This is definitely different from a lot of other scents I have tried, but I'm into it. It smells like citrusy black pepper. Sounds odd, but I love it.
I guess I didn’t really know what to expect. I’m not familiar with this brand so I was just trying this out to see if I would like it. I wore it consistently everyday. I didn’t like the smell as an every day wear plus i noticed I didn’t get any compliments. Only time I did is when i paired it with one of my over the counter body sprays (Marshall’s).
Spicy, but not hot
This one was nice. It reminded me of Bulgari Red Tea. It's definitely got an herbal, spicy backbone, but the black tea is the star of the show. I took one star off because, as I've found with most of the Berdoues fragrances I've tried, the staying power just is not there. That said, it's great for daytime summer wear, and layers nicely with other fragrances, particularly sandalwood (which also helps with wear time).
Really loved but scent lasts maybe 30 minutes
Very strong initially and it's almost too much.. but then it fades so quickly. The faded scent is glorious, but it is SO subtle that you cant smell it for very long. Really nice citrusy yet spicy scent.
The tea notes were really strong. The drydown is lemony. Not a combination I liked for a perfume. Home fragrance? Maybe.
Complex scent profile
Beautiful complex sent profile but the citrus notes hits the back of my nose in a very strong way that is unpleasant. So I have to spray and try not to breathe in right away. Once the initial citrus smell fads, I enjoy the mellow scent that remains. Slightly creamy with lighter citrus notes.
Love this,scent. It's light and airy very fresh.
Reminiscent of my childhood
I love this scent...it reminds me of a body spray I wore as a teen called citrus punch...it's light airy and an instant mood lifter...also has amazing staying power.
Not too strong, but lasts all day!
I am unsure about this one. First spray I got a lot of citrus, that it smelled like a cleaning product. Once that starts to mellow out I still get a soap smell but not cleaning chemicals. Ill see what my bf says about it to get a second opinion.
Fresh and pleasant
Initially, this smells just like a refreshing glass of unsweetened iced tea with lemon, as the notes suggest. The sandalwood comes out in the drydown, giving it a more unique and slightly woody scent, but it lies very close to the skin. I like this one all the way through, but it does not last very long. The opening tea scent lasts maybe 45 minutes, then it tapers off quickly so that after two hours it is almost gone.
To me this smells like a masculine citrus cologne; the lemon scent takes over everything else.
Not a win
I thought I would love this scent but it a cross between old lady perfume and cleaner.
Smelled like sweet tea
I expected tea and woods with a slightly burst of lemon. And at first it smelled just like expected. But as it dried down Iget a floral smell that I cant place and its it's highly distracting. Dont usually like florals I i am highly sensitive to those notes. If i didn't get that floral it would be perfect.
Subtle, yet surprising
Love this scent. I was happily surprised and will be purchasing in the future.
Citus and spice and everything nice
The orange and spicey notes are what I noticed first. Lovely summer fragrance. I liked how it was spicey and clean at the same time. Usually clean smelling fragrances give me a headache but this one did not!! Really like it!
Subtle Fruity-ness But Still a Great Scent
This is definitely a fruity scent & very sweet. I chose this because I LOVE elephants & I LOVED the bottle! This i a somewhat heavy scent, yet still very clean. But is does have a somewhat powdery "after-scent". I would recommend this.
Rich and exotic
Multi-layered and spicy. A lovely scent to take me into and through the fall.
Very lemony with a hint of tea. Really fresh and clean. You could wear this any time and any where without being offensive. Love it!
Nice. . . . But not for me.
I was looking for something lemony . . . This has very little citrus scent it feels very musky and heavy when u first use it, but the scent completely disappeares with in a hour. I didn’t hate it, but I feel it more masculine than feminine, I’m sure it can be use be either.
Refreshing Green Tea
Smells almost exactly like Elizabeth Arden Green Tea, but lasts much longer. It's a light, refreshing summer scent with a touch of spice.
Loved this scent!
Loved this scent! It wasn't too strong and it lasted a long time!
Smells very fresh and clean!
Very gentle scent
Goes on light and airy, definitely a summer scent. Has tones of florals and botanicals.
Growing on me
At first I wasn't so sure but the more I use it the more I like it. Very subtle, fresh smelling fragrance that's nice for work.
Unexpected scent profile
I was expecting something zesty and summery based on the description. However, on me this opens with a warm, sweet-cinnamon black tea scent with only a slight hint of lemon in the background. It's nice but not astonishingly so. About 30 minutes later, it turns into a sort of honey-woody smell with zero citrus left that reminds me of a competing mix of pencil shavings and used makeup. Luckily the scent becomes faint as well, so it's tolerable. It doesn't last more a few hours on a hot day. On the other hand, this perfume is pretty unisex. My fiance was able to use it in a pinch, but I didn't notice if it developed better on him than it did on me.
This is a super-clean, super-fresh scent that definitely can be called "citrus". I do think I've picked up tea undertones, but definitely the scent you get when making lemon tea, not black tea. The scent isn't long-lasting, which is the only knock I have on it.
I've read at least two reviews that compare this perfume to floor cleaner; I'm going to have to agree with them. The lemon is very very strong. You can pick up a trace of the tea and it has an almost soapy creamy smell which I'm guessing must be the sandalwood. This is a let down, for something that is supposed to represent India I would expect something bold, spicy, and sophisticated, this is a very pedestrian scent. I will not be buying this scent.
review of Berdoues Assam of India
I loved the fragrance...very light and summery. Love the smell of citrus. I would recommend this as a nice light fragrance for summer.....not a heavy scent.
Smelled of citronella to me
On paper, this seemed like something I would love. Black tea & lemon. It ended up smelling like a citronella candle to me. My husband wasn't a huge fan either. I found that if I sprayed it in the air and walked through it, it wasn't as strong/intense, but I definitely wouldn't buy it again.
This fragrance has a very light refreshing sent to it. But I found it far too light to the point where by noon I couldn't smell it anymore. This will be nice as something you throw in your beach bag or in your gym bag to spray on afterwards but I wouldn't say this is an everyday perfume at least not for me.
Beautiful clean smell!
Very very lemon, very very NOT tea.
I was really hoping for this to be more tea-scented. There's a greenness to this perfume that I would have hoped was woodsier/spicier, and I think it comes from a certain astringency to the tea note. It also is completely overwhelmed by the lemon. If you're looking for a lemon scent that leans far away from candy and has the true essence of lemon zest, this would be a great choice for you. I was expecting the sandalwood to help round it out and give it a heavier base note, but it's very much a mellow background note. Were this just a lemon perfume, I'd give it 5 stars for what it was. However, for a tea-scented perfume, it just doesn't hit its mark.
smells nice, just not my style
It truly smells like tea. It's a lovely soft scent, just not for me.
Great summer scent
Pretty much exactly what it says on the tin. I personally really like it but I can see how the lemon scent would be overpowering or reminiscint of cleaning products for some people. To me, it reminds me of how I made tea as a kid - a hot mug of lipton black tea with enough lemon juice and sugar to basically make it lemonade. It's nearly exactly the same smell. Its bright and zingy and uplifting, great for summer wear.
Loved this fresh citrus scent smells so good but lasts no more than an hour.
Berdoues assam of India
I thoroughly love the light citrus notes of this perfume. It's a perfect summertime fragrance.
Lovely perfume with strong tea smell
I love most of Berdoues' products. This one is another high score for me. I love the light lemony tea smell. It does tend to fade quickly, but I also wouldn't want it to be any heavier.
Tangy lemon and warm spice enchant the mind, but with a quick fading scent it lets down slightly.
I really didn't know exactly what to expect when it came to this perfume. I added it to my queue on a whim because of how much I love tea. What I noticed right out of the gate was that the 'lemon' note is by far the strongest note, in my opinion. When I asked a friend of mine what she thought, she said she smelled the tea right away, this difference could be scent preference, I LOVE the smell of black tea and she does not, so perhaps that is why I find myself "searching" for the tea scent more than some other folks. Overall the perfume is nice, crisp, and homey. It triggers positive memories with me, but my main complaint would definitely be the "stay power". I found that this lost it's scent within an hour or so of me wearing it. Granted it's on the more reasonably priced side of perfumes so I didn't feel -as- guilty about reapplying it. That said, it was rather annoying to have to re-spray myself 4+ times during one evening out.
This fragrance is simply delicious! I received a lot of compliments by both men and women. This is definitely one to have as a mainstay!
Smells exactly like tea
I wasn't sure what to expect when I ordered this one. It seemed like it would have some tea and cinnamon notes since its India Inspired. But it was just straight up tea smelling. It probably will be nice if that is something you are looking for. I ended up giving it away to a friend who liked it. Just not my flavor preference.
I really love the notes in this perfume. One of my favorites so far..
I really enjoy the perfume Tea from Commodity, so I thought I'd give this a try. It has more lemon than I was expecting, but it's very light. It's a scent that works well for summer.
Well Balanced Summer Citrus Scent
The first thing that comes to mind is how well balanced this fragrance is between the citrus, spice and woodsy scent. I think this also works excellent for layering and seems to compliment a lot of scents.
If you like lemon smells you’ll love this. Very strong but fades wonderfully. My favorite so far!
Don’t know how to describe this exactly......all I know is that it’s perfect, unique and I love it.
This fragrance smells exactly like the description. It light, would be a nice everyday fragrance.
Spicy and strong smell. Easy going
This fragrance is okay to me; I can really smell the lemon. It's a little different and unique. Not too strong with great lasting power. It mixes will with my body chemistry.
This a fresh citrus scent. Great gor daily use.
Perfect for Spring & Summer
I like this product & it’s light and fresh just perfect for the warmer seasons to come 😍
A scent that brightens your day
I thought this scent might be e heavy fragrance, laden with tea and sandalwood, but it is wonderfully light and clean. It lasts through the day well, and smells like black tea with lemon.
Lovely fresh scent
This is a lovely fresh citrus (lemon) tea scent. Whilst it is very pleasant and lasts reasonably well for a lighter fragrance, it is probably not one that I would re-purchase as there is nothing terribly unique about it. I will however enjoy this one while it lasts.
Fresh, beautiful tea scent
This would be great for everyday wear. Smells exactly like aromatic black tea with lemon.
Buy this scent, because it's the best!
Not my thing
It doesn’t smell bad, but it’s definitely not my normal scent. Very citrusy and would be great for summer.
This is a nice fresh scent. Perfect for summer. However i was a bit disappointed that it is quite floral and less earthy than i had expected.
Wow, great strong lasting smell just how I like it.
Oh my!!! This scent is why I am so happy with a service like Scentbird! I probably would’ve never come across this scent...I love the light, playful, sweetness of it...definitely Spring worthy scent
