It starts with a heavy, rather sweet blast of citrus with a good dose of pepper. That calms into a sweet mix of tea, fig, and walnut. It is very well blended and none of the individual notes stand out; it smells vaguely figgy, vaguely floral, and has a subtle nutty undertone. The Yunnan red tea, which is simply black tea from Yunnan - in China, fermented teas (e.g., all black teas) are referred to as “red” teas” - is more noticeable than the Rooibos tea to my nose. After an hour, it has faded to a mildly sweet, mildly nutty musk fragrance with a perhaps a bit of vanilla. It is very soft and light and close to the skin, and nowhere near as rich and foody as you might think from the notes. It is not quite as clean as Thé Vert or Thé Blanc, but it is in keeping with that style: fresh and wearable, nothing assertive.
