Recognizing that scent is subjective, on me this smells remiscent of the old red Lauren fragrance, which makes it a wonderful experience on me. Warm and very uplifting.

If you like Omnia, you will definitely love this one as they share some notes, but if Omnia is more suitable for Fall/Winter, this one will be, also, appropriate on a hot summer day.
I bought it without trying and wasn't disappointed at all! Wouldn't say that it smells particularly tea-like to me, but rooibois-like note does get through every once in a while. In general, i think it's a very interesting combination of spicy, fresh, sweet, even a bit sour - a versatile smell that will give you different emotions on different days. The beginning notes are sweet and spicy; however, in a while it turns out into a "piquant clean" smell if this description makes sense whatsoever:-)
The staying power is very decent- especially compared to Omnia! And it lingers on clothes for days!
UPDATE: I took off one lippie because it sometimes gets a bit too sweet and cloying... don't know whether it changed over a year or I enjoyed it more in the summer weather... I will tell in a couple more months:)

I secretly (shhhh....don't tell anyone lol) spend hours on here reading reviews about fragrances on here and own many bottles, but rarely take the time to write reviews, but felt compelled to do so because surprisingly I unexpectedly have fallen in love with Au The Rouge. I saw someone on youtube recommend this fragrance and she also had many other fragrances that I adore in her collection, so I figured I may like this, too. Then one day I was in Ross and it was reasonably priced, so I took the plunge. I opened the cellophane wrap of the package while sitting in my car after purchase. It smelled nice, but I was not in love. I wore it a couple of times, but the top notes reminded me a bit of ck eternity, which I once liked, but didn't care to revisit at present. Flash forward three weeks, I finished my last drop of blv by bvlgari and started using this finally. It reminds me of a steamy hot cup of chai tea latte. Creamy, spicy, clean, warm and a little bit nutty (has a walnut note). What is not to love. Today is kinda cold outside and this works well with the cold temp. Can see this working well in fall/winter though it is light so may work well in higher temps. Also, since this has some spice n a mysterious quality, I can see this working for a night out as well. Maybe three sprays for office wear and some extra sprays in my hair for a night out. I must say bvlgari fragrances are masterfully crafted. I do like chanels as well, but they can have some sharp and hard edges and take a bit to mellow out n smell great. All bvlgaris I have tried are blended to perfection. There are no sharp or rough edges, they immediately smell great from first spray--smooth, silky and perfect. Kind of like a monet watercolor, no harsh edges or garishness, just beautiful and fluid. Bvlgari fragrances are masterpieces and you can easily find them online or at ross and marshalls at a discount, chanel not so much. But bvlgari's quality is just as great, if not better, in my opinion. Au the rouge is original, I have not smelled anything like it.

I definitely get the tea in Rouge, and I like the texture of the juice
where you can see the volatile oils on your skin, but the overall
effect was plasticky and unpleasant on me.

This is a very unique scent. It is a great warm oriental fragrance. It isn't as good as Bvlgari green tea to me but red tea is unique in that it can be good on ANYONE. I love the drydown on this...it is very yummy. I would buy this again. I can't resist Bvlgari!

My brother in law had some of this laying around so I tried it. I didn't realize it was a unisex scent until I saw one of the products in the gift pack it came in was an aftershave lotion. There's no way a guy would wear this, it's way too floral. I don't really get a "tea" scent from it, it's just a pleasant sweet powdery floral. I wouldn't buy it for myself, or for a guy, but it's not a bad scent, there's just no "wow" for me.

This just arrived from Strawberrynet. Bought it on sale and hadn't tried it before. I am a fan of the Bvlgari Essential Rose, however, and seeing it was on sale I thought, why not? This is a beautiful purfume. Rose will remain my favorite, but if you love Rose, chanel no 5, dior addict 2, I think you'll love this! It's very feminine and classy and the scent has a long last. It wore well all day. Delicate, yet not too soft or in your face. It is a fragrance that blends very well from day to night. I do disagree however, that it is a gender neutral scent -- it is far more feminine, at least on me -- I wouldn't want my guy to wear it!

This is a not-bad lite oriental frag, with a nice blend of tea, spices and fig. It's gentle but still there, if you know what I mean. I wouldn't buy a bottle of this but I will use up my decant.

What a curious and warm scent. Starts of semi citrus/floral and turns spicy/wood and them soft vanilla. I adore in the Winter.

Bvlgari's Au the Rouge is a delightfully comforting smelling unisex red tea scent which I can highly recommend.
The first aroma that I sense on spritzing this on is the wonderful relaxing red tea scent. While Au the Rouge doesn't have tremendous sillage, the red tea scent dries down to a close to the skin powdery tea scent which I just love. I can then detect enough of the pink pepper scent to be intrigueing but not overwhelming. This adds a little oriental mystery to it especially when combined with the light fig note and orange. I don't really detect the musk base.
My only real complaint is the lack of lasting power. One practically has to bathe in this scent for lasting power.
I get a LOT compliments at work on Au the Rouge. One co-worker stated that it smells like Lola from Marc Jacobs. Most people just state that it smells "wonderful" and ask me what it is. Au the Rouge has become my HG scent for work.
You have to love the price. A 3.4 ounce bottle of this scent was originally abouty $85. you can now snag it at TJ Maxx or online for about $25.

I love this one! It's a bit sharp when first spritzed on, but it quickly becomes a lovely rooibos tea/figgy scent that is just a little bit spicy and a little bit sweet. It goes a little sweeter on me as it wears on, but never too much so. It stays fairly close to my skin and lasts for hours. I think it is a great scent for daily wear.

A haiku review of The' Rouge, dedicated to bcb1107.
The' Rouge is a sun-
drenched veranda, where you sip
spiced tea with your beau.

I got it when it was first released and I usually don't get around to buying a 2nd bottle of any fragrance as I bore easily (or they become "common") I'm on my 2nd bottle and looking for a 3rd. Oh how I love this fragrance! I would not consider myself an expert on fragrances and I won't pretend to explain"top notes, middle and dry down" BUT I will say that I know what I like! I like interesting, different and complex fragrances. This is it. I like florals, this is it! I like a little spice, this is it!!! I tend to stay away from mass marketed "too popular" fragrances, this is it!!! It is not love at first sniff and can be off putting with the first spritz but in a short while you get this lovely sexy and mysterious wonder. I get many compliments! I just learned that they've discontinued distribution here in the US . . how sad, but for now it is still readily available at discount stores/sites. I gotta get a backup bottle to be safe!!!!

Funny that I got a medicinal, soapy opening with this one. And where other fragrance lovers are blessed with some tea, I got some stale Turkish coffee with no depth strangely served with lemon wedges.

I find all Bulgari tea perfumes to be amazing. This is one of the best, in my opinion. It is not identitical to how rooibos tea smells, but it does remind you of an actual cup of that tea. Or sweetened black tea with some spices and milk. Smells quite natural on my skin, not like your typical perfume. I find it somewhat hard to smell on me after a while, I get used to the scent fast. Comforting scent.

I have come to love Bulgari rouge the. It was definitely not love at first sniff. Like others have commented, it goes on strong and strange but within 15 minutes it settles into a slightly spicy floral. I'm not sure if that is a good description but that's what I think of. It is not too strong but comforting (as others have said) and different. I love a complex scent but not overpowering. It doesn't last that long but I don't want people to notice the scent that I am wearing before I enter the room or after I leave. I don't think it is particular to any season and I definitely do not think of it as masculine. I would say it is more feminine because it dries down to a lovely floral. Perfect!

This works really well for me. I find the fig note very creamy and comforting and the tea not too strong. I can't imagine this being unisex tho...seems quite fem. Think it would work best in autumn and winter...little too heavy otherwise.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Black
this perfume is intended to be a unisex perfume, but in my opinion it is more masculine than feminine, it's so sharp and spicy, i liked it so much that i bought it for my husband and when it emptied i bought him another one, great perfume, unique smell.
