Out there, the snow-covered Nevsky Prospekt, and a sumptuous Art Noveau building. Inside, a large bookstore. And, on the first floor, an elegant cafè. As water is poured in the cup, the infusion unleashes its most characteristic notes. Black tea, heavy and intense. A floral note, sharp and biting. And that unmistakably dry and smoky aftertaste given by the caravanserai campfires, meant to keep the precious tea cargo dry in the never-ending journey through Siberia. The fresh mint leaves give a pleasant fresh touch to the hot water. A teaspoon of raspberry preserve sweetens, without altering it, the bitter aftertaste of leather and birch. We sip it slowly, gazing out of the wide window, towards the beautiful cathedral of Our Lady of Kazan and beyond. The Russian Tea Ritual today carried us to an unexpected journey in remote lands, full of mystery and fascination.
“Russian Tea is a journey, a day spent in Russia with a boiling Samovar, reigning in the house as the center of socialization and sharing. The black tea smell is strong, diffusing all around the house. It also evokes the journey of the tea through Siberia, taking the smell of campfires, and transportation in harsh conditions, interpreted by woody and leathery notes. The fresh mint leaves blend incredibly well with the smokiness, and the hint of raspberry and cinnamon that sweeten the bitterness of the tea.” – Julien Rasquinet, perfumer

I heard good things about this fragrances so i grabbed a sample. Easily a complete waste of my money. This smells awful. The only way to describe it is tea, old man, and medicine. Neither me or my girlfriend couldn't get into this. I literally couldn't even give this away to anyone. I'm just happy I got the sample first because I have a habit of blind buying everything.
I which u deal with dhl for shipping because our post office in oman so bad and extremely slow
smokey tea-like floral, a slight sharp/sour green note but is harmonious with the blend. I don't detect any mint or raspberry, but definitely has that slightly exotic cup of tea impression about it, though I liked it without it being a favourite
