Blackout is a warm, spicy oriental fragrance that really does smell like chai tea. If you've ever smelled a chai tea bag, you know it smells like cardamom, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, and other spices. Imagine smelling a chai tea bag that has been steeped in milk. Essentially, Blackout smells like a freshly made cup of spicy Masala chai (chai tea made with milk). It's a warm, spicy, cozy fragrance that is perfect for autumn and winter. I have worn it during the spring and summer, as it's not an overpowering fragrance. The sillage is moderate, as those around you will be able to smell you, but you won't overpower a room. The longevity is good, as I get about 8 hours of wear from one application of this fragrance. If you like warm, spicy, oriental fragrances I highly recommend trying this one!
