Latest Reviews of Tea Tonique
Tea Tonique feels unique in that it's a slightly bitter tea scent, but also satisfyingly sweet. It's noticeably "fresh," without being "sporty" or aquatic. At first there is a bitter note from the green tea & bergamot and mate. But it is very refreshing at the same time and it also mellows down a little soon. As the fragrance dries down it becomes warmer, but it's still a fresh tea scent. Totally, The tea & bergamot and mate are a very refreshing combo. And it's thoroughly unisex without leaning one way or another. I don't get a lot of sweetness from it, but it's also not overly tart, thanks to the floral undertone. The performance is average.
Tea Tonique bursts open with a really fresh, bright, natural smelling bergamot, flanked by the subtle smokiness of dry tea leaves. The soft floral nuances from the petitgrain work beautifully with the tea, giving it a genuine air of fullness.
This is a cheerful, light, easy wear (so those worried by the often pungent birch tar, needn't be; it's incredibly dialled back.) There's a mildly salty, suede-like, biscuity accord that makes one think of Digestives, sneakily nibbled from an Etro clutch bag.
If there is any nutmeg here, it only serves as a subtle warmer to the other notes.
The complete picture is one of Earl Grey and Digestives on a camomile lawn, under the shade of an Indian parasol.
If you love tea and biscuits, as I do, then you can't fail to enjoy this. It probably only lasts as long as tea and biscuits, too, wearing very close to the skin, but I think it's all the better for it.
