Beautiful for the 60 seconds I can smell it. One of the most fleeting fragrances ever.

This is a well constructed perfume made with quality materials but it failed to grab me. Osmanthe Yunnan has top notes of peppery citrus and a heart of tea and osmanthus. The osmanthus has a delicious apricot like quality-- not lush syrupy fruit but cooler, floral, and almost unripe. The milky tea accord calls to mind Bvlgari The Rouge and contrasts nicely with the slightly astringent osmanthus …Read more

At first, this fragrance smelled somewhat sharp and citrus-y, but that changed quickly and it became a warm, complex, subtle scent. On my skin, I can definitely smell the leather, which gives it a sophisticated and elegant personality. A definite winner.

The taste of tea leaves, diffused through the perfect cup, provides a backdrop, a role uncannily similar to oakmoss' in a chypre, green and quite dry, but with a bland toasted-rice delicacy quite its own—its transparency fully satisfies the modern taste for subtlety. The murkiness of tea, ever so slightly smoky, is illuminated by a brief flash of aldehydes and a citrusy tang, not sustained …Read more

It was love at first "sniff" when I tested this lovely scent at the local Hermes store, however the price makes me think twice!

Since then I can't stop thinking the lovely scent which still linger in my mind, the scent is so zen...it's tea leaves and with a hint of fruitiness. Finally I discovered the traveller's set which consists of 4 x 15ML Hermessences …

Osmanthe Yunnan calls to mind the fresh, serene aspects of China's Yunnan province, a region famed for its pristine (and fragile) natural beauty. However, I read on the Hermes website that Osmanthe Yunnan was inspired by perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena's trip to the Forbidden City in Beijing. Having spent a lot of time traveling China, I am a bit confused by Ellena's quote, and I think …Read more

On me, this opens exactly like insect repellent, no nice way of saying it. After about ten minutes however, I get a sheer peach and tea accord, not sweet but very nicely done. This is very summery. I can see why people like it. Given the bad opening coupled with the mild headache it gives me, I would not purchase. I also concur that the lasting power is very poor.

Ahhhhh... My perfect "tea" scent, what can I say? Tea is my favorite perfume note so I probably smelled everything available out there. I really enjoy many tea scents, but this beats them all. Usually there are green tea scents, Bvlgari Au Vert followers with less character, or strong and exact ones like CdG Leaves: Tea or L'Artisan Tea for Two, which can be not so easy to wear …Read more

Beautifully light - Osmanthe Yunnan is fruity without being sweet. A bit of tartness in the opening (probably the orange) with the tea quitely blended in the background. Gorgeous floral that's great for spring/summer. I love every note in this scent - it's perfect. I would never want to be without Osmanthe Yunnan.

I fell for the wonderful descriptions and reviews of this scent, just got my decant today and it does smell nice in the vial, but I smell absolutely nothing on my skin, not in the beginning and not later.

Very weird, I have never encountered anything like this in a scent. I've heard of light, but this is ridiculous. If it works on anyone, I'm sure it's lovely though.
