Tea Rose

tea rose edgy
Tea Rose’s elegant, unisex brown and silver packaging and stately bottle belies the price tag, and the scent does too. A bottle can be had for an hour’s worth of freshman workship wages, yet smells like tenured faculty pay.

Tea Rose is cultured pearls and effortless good manners having gin and tonics at a garden party.
Uncompromising rose, it will strip all other scents in the room of their flowers, and curtsies only to Joy.

I wore this in college when I could only afford silver jewelry, and needed my rayon dress to hold its own in a room full of silk.


This one came out in 1977, along with Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours. Here’s a brilliant and eerie cover.
