I was excited to try this, because I'm a sucker for any scent that mentions tea. I'm not really liking this scent, though. I don't smell any tea, but I definitely smell the berry and rum. The rum is warm and smooth, and the berry is tart and a bit dry (not a juicy berry, but a bit on the sweeter side of things). I can't really pick out the anise that other people have mentioned. It's a tart, sweet, strong, chemical sort of berry (maybe like berry scented markers on me) with a silky, warm, boozy note that's almost a bit caramelized smelling on my skin. It doesn't really remind of the other blackberry scents I've tried from bpal. It's so artifical and chemical-y that it starts to give me a vicious headache after a while.
I almost got a full bottle of this one, but I'm glad that I just went with an imp, because this version of blackberry and rum isn't working for me, and the tea is nowhere to be found. A bit too tart and a bit chemical-sweet in a way that turns my stomach
