Tea perfume, indeed. Who would have guessed? Not that high-quality tea doesn't haven't a great fragrance, but I don't know if I'd like to smear it all over myself. Apparently there are those who want to do just that.
From Now Smell This (A Blog About Perfume), comes a recent article about several fragrances that incorporate tea. There's Thé Brun, featuring "notes of bergamot, fruity notes, green leaves, lavender, violet, spices, cumin, jasmine, orange blossom, lapsang tea, palisander wood, powdery notes and musk". Also Comme des Garçons Leaves Series: Tea, Comptoir Sud Pacifique’s Ecume de Thé and L’Occitane Green Tea and Jasmine.
A visit to L'Occitane's Web site also turns up Green Tea - Eau de Toilette and Green Tea with Mint Eau de Toilette, among other things.
I suspect this may be just the tip of a small iceberg, but it's all pretty much out of Tea Guy's league. If you want to know more, start with the link listed below.
