Tea Rose Jasmin by The Perfumer's Workshop

Rose, Muguet.
Jasmine, Cedar, Tuberose.
Sandalwood, Amber.

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.

My wearings of Tea Rose Jasmin bring to life two notes that come to the fore and remain there for the life of the scent. Tuberose and Jasmine predominate on me with Tuberose taking the lead during the top and heart before relinquishing control in the base. Once the Tuberose dissipates, Jasmine reveals itself more forcefully. It's been there the entire time, just waiting for the Tuberose to stop talking.

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.

  1. I have been curious about the other offerings (beyond the obvious) from this house forever.
    Thank you, Aromi, for going where few noses appear to have gone before! ;-)

  2. As far as I know, this is the only Tea Rose flanker that is still find-able, although I've not encountered it yet (I haven't really looked). Thanks for describing it. The quality of these fragrances is unpredictably excellent, given their price tag - and if they were priced at $50 an ounce, I would still think they're worth every penny.

  3. Hi Bryan and Shera Pop. I also didn't know they made this until I ran across it at TJMaxx. Both have surprised me and if I stumble upon others from Perfumer's Workshop, I will assuredly buy them.
