The Scent Story

Experience the austere beauty and warm hospitality of Mongolian Horse Culture with Tea & Takhi. Central to Mongolia’s culture and heritage are the Takhi (native, wild horses). Nowhere are horses more central to daily life than in Mongolia. A traditional proverb sums it up: "A Mongol without a horse is like a bird without the wings." Within a land of fiercely independent, nomadic herdsman, horses are regarded as a source of both life and wealth. Horses also play a significant role in Mongolian spiritual beliefs; the word Takhi translates to Spirit or Spiritual. Mares’ milk is used for religious offerings and to made various foods such as Suutei Tsai (Mongolian Milk Tea) which is salty rather than sweet and is often enriched with butter. If you are ever to visit Mongolia, you will be welcomed with this warm and nourishing beverage which is an important part of Mongolian hospitality.

Tea & Takhi perfume creates the moment and place with an evocative and unusual group of notes not often seen together: tea, salt, butter, smoke, grass, hay, leather and horses. You are greeted by the scent of salty, buttered, lapsang souchong tea brewed over an open fire in a metal kettle. Notes of grass and hay conjure the open grasslands of the Mongolian steppes. While a leather and warm horse accord—featuring real oud—brings the sense of leather tack warmed with animal sweat and sets you firmly in the saddle.
