Tea Rose Jasmin by The Perfumer's Workshop
Jasmine, Cedar, Tuberose.
I'm amazed at the strength of the Eau de Toilette series of Tea Rose. The opening volley, if not prudently applied, will cause the Wow factor in a negative way. That said, it's such an easy problem to avoid by spraying from a distance and being easy on the trigger. Strong fragrances are economical simply due to the obvious and if they showcase one or two notes, they make terrific layering scents. Such is the case ( once again ) with The Perfumer's Workshop Tea Rose Jasmin. This isn't a soliflore like Tea Rose ( on my skin ), but it's close.
The extended drydown exhibits subtle woods, but at least on my skin, Tea Rose Jasmin is all about Jasmine and Tuberose. For the whopping price of $4.99 for 30ml, this is a no brainer for Jasmine lovers. Others may realize other facets in their wearings, but no matter. For the price point, quality and presence, this is hard to beat. Sillage is very good with longevity approximately 5 hours on me. Thumbs up from Aromi for the little bottle with the tiny price tag and huge aroma. A sample wear is recommended, but if you enjoy Jasmine, just buy the damn thing for 5 bucks and be done with it.
