Elizabeth Arden White Tea Eau de Toilette

Press Sample

New for 2017, Elizabeth Arden White Tea is inspired by the simple pleasure that accompanies the first sip of tea. Exquisitely uncomplicated, this new fragrance invites you to revel in the moment. A musky-woody floral, it preludes with sparkling Italian Mandarin and sensual Sea Breeze Accord.

Perfumers and co-creators Rodrigo Flores-Roux and Guillaume Flavigny and Caroline Sabas were inspired by the blissful moment of solace experienced by the first sip of tea. “We wanted to capture that refreshing moment of blissful solace experienced at the first sip of tea. White Tea Vapors and Sea Breeze Accord develop into the sweet smell of White Iris before finishing with the warm wood scent of Madras Wood, Tonka Bean and a delicately blended trio of musks.” 

It’s Zen-like heart of White Tea extract, Turkish Rose Absolute and Mate Absolute Paraguay transports you to a place of luxurious indulgence, while lingering notes of Madras Wood, Ambrette Seed Absolute and a trio of Tranquility Musks leads to an unforgettable finale.

The scent opens with a burst of citrus then the rose accord appears and finally the musk kicks in and everything softens. White Tea is an elegant, feminine fragrance that is crisp and clean and the dry down is warm without losing any freshness or smelling powdery. This is a scent that has to develop with a bit of time, don’t expect to get the full effect for about an hour. For me, it evokes images of the Meditteranean coast with those beautiful turquoise beaches. It is very easy to wear and has good lasting power with a slight sillage. There is a lot to like in White Tea though I do think it lends itself to warmer weather because it is so light and fresh. I tend to wear deeper, spicier fragrances in the fall and winter. That said, I do really like it and know lots of women will fall for this modern, classy scent.

The White Tea bottle is quite simple with a square white top graduating downward to clear in a reverse ombre. A bonus is that White Tea is SO affordable! The 3.3 fl. oz bottle is only $49 which is remarkable for a good fragrance. It is an EDT as opposed to a perfume but still, I typically pay upwards of $100 for my fragrance so it’s still a GREAT value!

  • Allison @neversaydiebeauty

  • Kristi McAllister

    Really, really affordable, actually! My favorite perfume by Aramis was New West and I can’t find it anymore because it was discontinued years ago. I have found it on ebay, but it’s so rare that people are charging between $399 and $1000 for it! Crazy! I need to try to find something I love just as much because I love fresh, floral notes. Thanks for recommending it!

    • I suggest going to an EA counter and giving it a try, maybe get a sample.
