Kaizen1972's Review of Assam & Grapefruit by Jo Malone London

Great citrusy-floral-fruity scent which truly evokes the experience of a fresh cup of morning tea.

Assam and Grapefruit is a refreshing and energetic aroma.
Top notes: grapefruit, violet, rhubarb;
Heart notes: Indian black Assam tea, rose, cardamom;
Base notes: patchouli, almond, musk.

I drink a lot of tea every day, and Assam is one that is in my rotation. Jo Malone's Assam & Grapefruit does a convincing job of recreating that hearty, fragrant quality of Assam tea, touched with grapefruit (which dissipates over time). It evolves into a more floral scent, still kept with the vibe of Assam black tea thanks to the deft choice of spices and musk.

Great formulation that I as a man would gladly wear, and also recommend for ladies.
