Halfway around the world from Jaipur, this fragrance came about during the rainy season in San Francisco. Chai lattes provided cosy warmth most afternoons while the drumbeat of rain on glass provided sound effects.

Chai tea has an artfully balanced blend of cinnamon, clove, cardamom, ginger, nutmeg and pepper. Add steamed milk and honey, and you have a frothy treat that inspired the yummy gourmand notes of Jaipur Chai.

A subtle rose note in this fragrance reflects the pink buildings for which Jaipur is famous. Dry cedar and guaiac woods balance the sweetness, and a soft suede note is like a refined punctuation mark.

It's an amazing scent that is very much worth the blind buy.

Sweet milky chai tea

This one has really grown on me over time. I liked it when I first got the sample, but as I've worn it I've grown to love the sweet, almost soapy fragrance. It has a milky cleanness that's just lovely on the skin. I had been expecting a very spicy chai scent with the combination of cardamom, cinnamon & clove but this is overwhelmingly lactonic & sweet. I'm planning to purchase a full size bottle as I love it more each time I wear it.


Fantastic scent! So impressed with the entire Ineke brand! Highly recommended 😎

Frothy Spice

I was nervous this would be too sweet but have really grown to like it. At first I was hit with everything that a Chai latte might have: lactonic smoothness, black tea's undertones, vanilla, cardamom, sugar. At first spray it reminded me of a candle which was too intensely autumnal, but it dries down to a really balanced sweet-spice. I lovely gourmand that isn't cloying, if you're looking for a cozy fall fragrance this is a great option.

Comforting and Spicy

I ordered a sample and finally just purchased a full bottle. I made the mistake of only spraying a tiny bit at first because it was a sample but once I did a few full sprays I realized how incredible it is. The perfume smells like the cloved oranges that my grandmother used to make at Christmas time along with a milky tea and some sort of gentle underlying flower scent. The dry down is a slightly spicy vanilla. If you like spicy gourmands then you'll love Jaipur Chai.
