Russian Tea by Masque

Being Russian myself I was very anxious to try this fragrance. So I did. After wearing it for a couple of times I still can't really get why it is called "Russian" tea. Probably the whole idea of its name is coming from the entourage of samovar tea ceremony. Smokiness from a birch wood burnt to boil the water in a samovar, forest berry jam, leather chairs. The middle phase is quite pleasant and airy and somehow reminds me of a homemade steep black tea. Drydown though is rather generic and has no recognizable backbone.
In any case its a nice composition and a nice take on a tea theme, especially when the fragrance market is overloaded and stuffed with gazillion of annoying ouds and roses.
