Smells like it says
I like this perfume. It really does smell like black tea with lemon. Neither the tea or the lemon are too strong or chemical smelling. It's an unusual scent, I might buy more of it.

I would buy it
I really liked this perfume. I read about it in the comments on a blog and thought it might be something I would like. The notes are very limited and I was not sure how it would go, but I was very pleasantly surprised when I tried it. The lemon did not hang out very long of course, but it was sort of artificial, sticky sweet anyway, so that was fine. The black tea middle note lasted forever. In a good way, it is lovely. I noticed the tea still lingered along with the base sandalwood over twelve hours later. It was quite close to the skin pretty quickly, but I once read the only person who should be able to smell your perfume is someone you are intimate with. This is one of the least complex perfumes I have ever used and I think it may end up being one of my favorites.

Lime scented
I liked the sound of all the tones included but when I received it and used it, it smells like limes... and it said it used lemons, not limes. Anyway, I personally can not stand the taste of limes so I was discouraged by the smell of them. It?s probably a fine perfume, I just don?t like it.

Exactly what I had expected
This fragrance is exactly what I expected. It?s a sweet lemon tea with a bit of sandalwood. A light fragrance that I feel comfortable wearing everyday.

Intoxicating
I am so glad to choose this perfume based on the high reviews. It's exactly as described and I certainly plan on buying this. It doesn't last throughout the day though.

I Love This
I am really into spicey earthy scents and this has become one of my favs, its strong but sensual.

love it!
I was a little worried about trying this one since so many people says it smells like lemon detergent, but I was pleasantly surprised by this fragrance! It's light and fresh, and I definitely get more of the tea than I do citrus. Perfect for warm weather! Longevity isn't the greatest, but I don't know of any tea scent lasting more than a few hours

Not for me, but my sister liked it
At first I liked it, but I had sprayed it over a faded perfume (Histoires de Parfums' Ambre 114). Very strong fake lemon with black tea. If you want to smell like iced tea with strong, fake lemon this perfume is for you. After wearing it on its own, I couldn't stand it. If you want to use up this perfume, I suggest combining it with something like Ambre 114 to give it a more complex, warm scent. Something with strong gourmand or woody base notes. I gave it to my sister and she liked it , so I'll raise it three stars from two.

I am really loving this scent. It is very citrusy but the sandalwood sort of mellows it out a bit.

It has way to much of a fake lemon scent to it. I was hoping for more of the other under tone scents but nothing other then the lemon comes through for me.

This has such a strong citrus scent that?s about all I smell. Even when I sprayed more during application I couldn?t get it to stay with me. I wouldn?t buy this one. Don?t even want 30 days of it really.

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!

Loved this scent when I received it last month. Cannot believe I mistakenly added it to my que for this month but I'm am soooo very happy I now have two bottles.

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.
