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.

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

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

Lemon woah
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.

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.
Helpful?

Lemon Blast
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.

Arnold Palmer
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.

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!

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!!

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 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.

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!

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.

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!

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.
