BYOT! Enter TeaChat here, you never know what you may find!


A few months ago, 90% of responders said they were drinking their tea alone, BUT TODAY, we want to know, do you prefer to drink your TEA alone?

Yes. For me, tea is a state of mind, focus. I definitely prefer my tea alone

shhhh don't tell anyone but I'm from Perfume of Life. Take comfort, you are not alone. And there are others, shhhh. And together, silently we move among our tea loving brethren; spreading the truth about niche.
Vic, your reply made me LOL!

Trioxin, you definitely are not alone! Have you visited Basenotes? MUA? POL? Lots of kindred spirits in those places.

Thanks Sal, I missed Trioxin's comment initially. I think "chicks" dig guys who smell good - period. A tea scent would be a plus. A niche tea scent - even better. Guys want girls to smell good, but they don't want to reciprocate? What's up with that?

Thanks Trioxin, you smell great! For me today a tea note based scent too, although not niche. It's JLo's Still which has notes of tea and sake.
I have no experience with tea scents at all. Would either or both of you consider starting a thread on this? I'd love to hear more about them.

Actually, you forced my hand. :o) I have been considering that for sometime. I will work on posting some tea related perfume info in the forum called Other, under Misc. near the bottom of the board.
Thanks for the nudge.

Yep. I used to do a lot of buying and selling on Basenotes.

It's a scary world out there for those who think of aroma as something to wash off once a week if it's our turn to bathe. What on earth is niche? Orthographic error for nice?

Niche are smaller independent perfumers, most often they concentrate on quality rather than quantity. All this, and more, will be revealed in my TeaScents thread. Coming soon to a Forum near you.
