Realistic Tea Scent
Russian Caravan opens with bright, citrusy bergamot over a surprisingly realistic, lightly sweet tea scent. While I didn't detect much smoke, there's a savory note in the mix that really captures the specific aroma of black tea. At the same time, it has a bright transparent quality that makes it quite refreshing, almost summery. That said, as a personal fragrance it felt a bit one dimensional and it faded away very quickly.
