Rebottled Assam of India, rebottled by Scentbird, Inc., an independent bottler from a genuine product wholly independent of Berdoues

Notes
Black Tea Lemon Sandalwood
Description
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.

Picked up the black tea and lemon notes upon application. Sandalwood wasn't apparent until later in the day when the scent was fading, but thoroughly enjoyed it still.

I did not like this scent. It initially smells like black pepper then like orange cleaner.

This fragrance is so light and airy the citrus is not overly strong. It does dissipate quickly but it's not too much to just reapply throughout the day since it doesn't layer on thick if that makes sense.

I truly enjoyed this scent. The peppery notes are perfect for me. The scent doesn’t last as long as I’d like but I’m interested in purchasing a full bottle

I can smell the tea and citrus notes quite easily. That's about it. I was really hoping to pick out the sandalwood, but it's just not there for me. I didn't hate this at all, but there just wasn't enough complexity to make it worth buying the full bottle.

Very fresh and clean scent. I think this would be a perfect for a hot, summer day. It's not very long lasting but does dry nicely on the skin. Definitely pleased with this perfume selection!

A little on the Pledge side, but not in an unpleasant way. It feels very bright and clean, freshly showered and coiffed. It's not bad, I just wanted it to sparkle a little bit more.

If you enjoy green tea scented perfumes, this is a great choice. It lasts and dries to a nice powdery scent. Unique and beautiful fragrance.

WOW! So glad I decided to give this one a go. Big fan! The initial spray is a bit peppery then instantly goes to tea & finally lemon. Unique, very strong & lasts all day long. Reminds me of D&G's Dolce but more intense & a little less floral. I've gotten many compliments & would totally consider purchasing the full size.

This fragrance smells like a cleaning product. I thought it would be more exotic than Endust. I was very disappointed.

Had to wash it off after first spritz! Did not live up to the beautiful description provided. Would gladly return for just about anything. definite kitchen cleaner smell with instant powered ice tea mix. Nauseating! Hoping for a better sample, before considering ending my subscription.

For my very first shipment (which I was eagerly awaiting), I chose this scent. Fortunately It was a real disappointment!! Smells like lemon scented kitchen cleaner mixed with instant iced tea mix ..... I must have been caught up in Scent Bird's romantic/poetic description. Will gladly send back for another scent; as I had to wash it off immediately after first spritz! Let's see what's in store with the second shipment, before I consider ending my subscription.

Was not my favorite. I think it was too citrusy for me.

The mix of tea, citrus, and sandalwood is so lovely and balanced. It has a really clean but interesting scent. I normally really dislike citrus scents and tend to go unisex type smells, woodsy, smoky, or floriental. However, this smells so delicious that I have to try more from this brand! Great daily scent, mood booster for sure, not too strong a sillage, but dries down nicely. I don't know if it's the end of summer heat in the south, or if it just burns off quickly, but I have had to reapply a couple times a day...pretty sure it's weather speeding up a natural fade. If you like interesting scents that aren't super girly floral, then this scent is perfect for you!

I enjoyed this perfume, it is very much a gender neutral scent which is complex but not too strong once it settles. One spray could still be smelt over seven hours later and my family enjoys it as well.

I felt like I could taste curry and see an elephant walking past me! I am in lust with this scent and my man LOVES the notes of fruit & spice.

This mostly smells like (strongly) lemon-scented cleaning products for a few minutes (Lemon Pledge), and then a sort of watery fresh scent with a softer lemon. I don't smell Assam tea, or sandalwood. It's fresh, clean, and suitable for hot weather, but only lasts a few hours.

This fragrance is nice. It's more lemony than anything. It doesn't last long either. But it's a nice summer scent.
