Eau Parfumée au Thé Rouge, also called “Red Tea” was launched in 2006, as third in the series of tea-based perfumes following Eau Parfumée au Thé Vert and Thé Blanc. The creator behind Eau Parfumee au The Rouge is Olivier Polge.
It opens with a heavy, sweet citrus blast spiced with a generous dose of pink pepper. The composition later calms into a very well-blended sweet mix of fig and Yunnan red tea. The red tea is simply black tea from Yunnan (China). Eau Parfumee au The Rouge dries down into a mildly sweet, nutty musk scent with a hint of resins and vanilla.
Soft, light and close to the skin, this fragrance is fresh and wearable, unlike the notes which suggest a heavy gourmand perfume.
