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 was surprised how much I liked it after I wore it for a bit.￼
Initially when I sprayed this I thought to myself oh I don’t know about this... like there was something in there that’s got a bit of a black pepper bite. However, I sprayed it on my skin because it did have a nice lemon forward sent.￼ once it sat on my skin for a bit I really began to like it￼ A LOT! Whatever the biting note is in there￼ It dissipates and my skin is left feeling really clean and fresh and it smells fantastic! I definitely would recommend it.￼
Fresh, lemony smell which I liked a lot. However, I thought it would have more of an exotic accent.
This was a really nice, fresh, lemony smell which I liked a lot. It would have been fun if it had a little more of a twist to it -- peppery or woodsy or something extra that would bump it up to the next level. It was more like a bold lemony scent (which I still liked). The scent didn't seem to last too long on my skin, maybe a few hours.
I love how fresh this scent is!
enjoy the scent
I really like the smell and so did my Fiance but I didnt smell for for long. It was a mild scent.
Smells like Zest
More of a masculine scent. Really smelled like a bar of soap. Not at all to my liking.
Love, love, love this scent!
Intriguing....warm....the perfect autumn scent
not for me
the scent smelled more like something I would buy as a candle, not something I would wear.
like this smell. its lemony and yet like ice tea. but its not strong enough and doesn't last long enough. this is my 3rd month and so far none of the perfumes are strong and long lasting im starting to wonder if they are watered down.
Assam of India
Loved this one and I will definitely Purchase it in full size. The smell was fragrance but not overwhelming had plenty of citrus Hills which is my favorite and any perfume. Lasted a long time.
My humble opinion
I loved it.
i want to order a whole bottle of this
Very lemony! I didn't mind that , it just did not last long at all. I couldn't tell i had it on.
Im looking for something in woods and musk. The seduction of the orient. It can be bold, warm .. close to over powering. Any suggestions?
I love this scent, it’s fresh and citrusy but not to over powering. I’m very sensitive to smells and this is the first perfume I’ve had that didn’t give me a headache. The top and heart notes are exactly as described but sadly the scent fades all together before you get to the sandalwood base notes. My only complaint is that it fades quickly.
yup thats what it smells like
This smells like a concentrated black tea with lemon. Nothing more, nothing less. I'm going to use it as a linen or room spray because it's not really what I want to smell like but it does smell good.
Not in my scent profile
not in my scent profile
A bit overpowering
Not my favorite, does make me think of India
reminiscent of Eucalyptus and White Tea, one of my faves.
Sunny spiked lemonade
This reminded me of lemons yes but a more adult version of a lemonade. Lovely.
Not my fave. Overpowering.
Does Not Last
i was hoping for more spice, a little less citrus. it is wearable, especially in summer. i layer it with body lotion to give it some oomph
Very endearing scent.
I smell like a tea factory! I only wish it lasted longer!
Wasn’t for me
Was expecting fresh and clean and this wasn’t it.
It went on nice - a great citrus smell but it didn't last long. Had to reapply during the day.
I love tea so...
I like this. It initially smells like tea and a little sweet. Not overpowering at all. Clean. I feel like I've worn it before...it smells really familiar. It is not at all in my scent preferences and I'm not sure why I selected it. But I like it.
Smelled like tea, what I was looking for
It’s a light musk scent not overpowering.
Bright and fun
Playful and spicy
Not long lasting enough
Smells okay but doesn't last at all
Perfect for spring/summer!
I honestly cannot wait to repurchase this! The tea really does it for me
Not for me
Was not fresh enough for me...too warm.
Scent from Heaven!
This scent is absolutely lovely! Every time I open it I smile. I was expecting to like it based on the description, but I absolutely LOVE IT! It is my new favorite and I have since bought a full sized bottle of this perfume. Exotic and mysterious, this scent has hints of tea, floral, spice....it reminds me of cardamom! I can not say enough about this beautiful scent. I feel beautiful when I wear it...it's my favorite. Nancy Johnson
Love the smell need to last a bit longer
I live in hot weather I believe it should last a bit longer
This smells exactly like black tea and lemon. I’m absolutely in love with it!
Smell does not last
Pretty scent though
reminds me of windows open breeze blowing thru.... love!!!
This smells just as the notes listed. Very lemony smell but in a great way. This is a wonderful summer perfume. As the perfume dried it only got better!
I got this as a sample from Sephora! Ordered the big bottle and also saw it on Scentbird and I just HAD to have a travel version I LOVE this scent it is so beautiful ! I have tons of perfumes this and the D & G L’imperatice is my signature scent
perfect for summer - especially an active day out when you want to use a scent but don't want to stand out!
too strong and too heavy
The worst ever
Actually dumped it out..
Does not smell like the description at all!
I love this scent, it is prefect for summer!
I loved the scent! So much so, that I ordered a bottle of it. The perfume received from Scentbird smelled nothing like the perfume received from Berdoues. To be honest, it was a big let down. I really enjoyed the one from Scentbird...can't stand the one from Berdoues
The only thing I appreciated about this scent was that it was very unique. I mean, if you want to smell like lemon tea, this is a good way to go. It also has a small hint of a pepper smell to me personally, which I think makes it good as a summer or a fall scent. This perfume wasn't for me because I prefer floral, woodsy scents, but it did stand out and it was different. It also could stand to last a little longer.
Perfect for Summer
Like a sexy lemon ice tea. Refreshing and fun.
Don't Like the Finish
It smells great qhen freshly sprayed, the citrus and sandalwood stand out, when it dries however, the scent profile changes and comes off more floral which i don't enjoy.
The fragrance was nice but not for me. I gave it to my daughter and she seems to enjoy it.
At first I thought "Woah! Lemony Pledge" but it dried down to a beautiful, clean crisp tea smell, wholly summer!
A Summer Dream
The perfect scent to remind you of that moment a tall icy cold sweet tea breaks the oppressive heat of a Southern Summer. The lemon is bright, the wood notes warm, and the tea is rich, black, and deep. And for the Southen Belle away from home, one spritz of Rosa Nobile and three of Assam of India will leave you smelling like a Southern summer all day long
Thanks for the layering tip! I happened to have Rosa Nobile from a previous Scentbird month, and it works amazingly well with Assam of India. I didn't find either one especially great on its own. But, together, they're delicious.
Basically a lemony punch in the face when first spritzed. The dry down is more of the same, but much quieter. There's a pleasant fizz to it, too. I'm disappointed that I don't smell much of tea or sandalwood, but it's lovely enough without. I recommend spraying on clothes rather than skin. It lasted overnight on a shirt I wore but faded after an hour on my arms.
Very light and refreshing
This scent reminds me of a lemon tea. I enjoy the scent however, I wish it was stronger and lasted longer.
love this scent, only issue is it is not long wearing.
While not as spicy as I would have thought, the scent was very pleasing. I do enjoy the tea notes the most. Very clean and lingers on the skin nicely.
Clean and citrusy
Liked it but a little strong
Not a fan of sandalwood but it was very nice and lasted for about 5 hours before I reapplied
I expected something a little more exotic but it really does just smell like sweet lemony tea. It reminds me of that old Elizabeth Arden Green Tea fragrance, which makes it seem a little dated to me.
Very strong floral
Love this scent. Favorite so far!
Stronger than you’d expect
The notes themselves are very subtle and smell SO good together. However, when you first spray it might feel just a tad overpowering. Super sexy and adventurous perfume. I honestly love it with just one spritz
This smells exactly as of you were chugging an unsweetened Arnold Palmer. It’s strong notes of black tea and fresh squeezed lemon juice, the sandalwood faint and soft. If I had to paint a picture for you, it would be drinking a Fresh Arnold Palmer while burning sandalwood incense in the other room.
Sun Tea with Lemon
This is a bright, herbal Lipton sun tea scent (like when you've had the jug sitting outside in the sun ALL day with 15-20 tea bags in it!) with lots of lemon and plenty of sweetness. It's unique and summery and my significant other really likes it (He says its citrusy). While it brings back happy Summertime memories for me, and it dies down to just a close-up skin scent within an hour or so, i'm just not sure it's a scent i want to smell like personally. Drink it? Absolutely...but to wear?? Not so sure.
Smelt good just didn’t mix well with me
I enjoyed the scent and it was pretty close to the description. I just wore it and did not smell as well wearing it as I would have liked.
Love the citrus
Very refreshing scent
Beautiful lemon tea smell! Very clean but doesn't last long.
I love the fragrance, so nice💖
I love the scent, my favorite so far💖
Assam of India
I love lemon and tea, that is what hooked me to this particular fragrance. Love the smell, not to strong something to be worn daily the only down fall is it did not last all day long!
Lemon furniture polish
Should have skipped this one.
My New Summer Fave
Love the light scent with the deep base note of sandalwood. Great balance.
really smells of tea. It is interesting and pretty.
Loved the fresh lemon and tea scent
Nice leftover scent the next morning.
I like the exotic notes hiding beneath the citrus when first applied, they come out stronger as it dries. Not powdery or overpowering. Would love to try the lotion to match.
Too much lemon
I thought this smelled like lemon pledge at first. I could smell the tea but the lemon was too much for me. The sandalwood was almost non existent. I am giving this too my brother who I think will love it. Wish it had been a bit sweeter or warmer.
I was expecting heavy on the spices, but it came out pretty lemony for me. Just so happens my scent-adverse mother ended up liking it!
It smells like when you open a lemon nestea
Okay, very sweet scent
I find this scent sweet with a fresh finish. Does not seem to last as long as I personally like.
so unique. not floral, not fruity- good everyday scent.
Good fragrance but not stay on me.
Favorite of all time, smells like an Arnold Palmer in the best possible way.
Clean and fresh
This is a very bright and citrusy scent. I like the perfume, but it isn't a go to for my profile. Definitely worth trying.
Berdoues. Assam of india
I absolutely love this perfume!! I have had nothing but compliments on it! It's perfect for Spring but I would wear it all year round!! I would have never known had it not been for Scent bird!!!
Love it - it's interesting and unique
25 to 34
Bright clean earthy
I love this perfume like holy shit. It reminds me of a fancy shampoo and conditioner but i cannot put my finger on it. The first notes are citrus with a heavy soap/clean scent.
Different but not bad
This scent reminds me of the lemon tea crystal light packets my mother used to use. Not bad, but not great.
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...
