The Perfumer’s Workshop was founded in 1971 by Donald and Gun Bauchner as a personalized perfume boutique. Applying their concept of custom made fragrances at a concession counter they acquired at Bloomingdale’s, their product concoctions gave consumers complete control of what scent ingredients they wanted mixed together along with what bottle they wanted it housed in and what outside packaging they wanted to use to complete their custom look. The Perfumer’s Workshop was a hit and more counters were opened at various upscale department stores.
By the late 1970s their product offerings had evolved into a collection of ready made fragrances sold in stores throughout the United States. Tea Rose, was introduced in 1975 and has been the most successful product from Perfumer’s Workshop. This classic women’s perfume is a bouquet of various florals infused with various spices and woods and is infused in such a manner that the pure and clean scent of the rose rises above.
The women’s perfume Samba, which was launched in 1987, is a lavish yet refreshing and vibrant floral scent quite popular with the younger set. The men’s companion scent, Samba for Men, came out in 1990 and is also a refreshing energetic fragrance suited for casual wear. The popularity of these two scents have led to a series of both men’s colognes and women’s perfumes under the Samba name which have become a popular seller. In 2011 Perfumer’s Workshop introduced their Zippered collection which is only available for purchase online.

Review of Tea Rose by Loves Tea Rose 16 Nov 2012
Ahhh, Tea Rose. Found in the mid 70's in the Hecht Co. dept store in Maryland and have been wearing it exclusively ever since. Having tried countless concoctions in my quest for that perfect fragrance mimicing my favorite flower, I came upon this wonderful perfume and will never be without it. At one point I was unable to find it readily so I wrote Perfumer's Workshop and they sent me a beautiful 8x10 cannister with some wonderful one of a kind photos of the perfume and some samples. It's priceless to me. They also sent me a list of stores in my area who still sold it. Tea Rose is a part of my everyday routine and I wouldn't go anywhere without it. Even today after so many years of using it, I'm still pleasantly surprised at the compliments I receive.

Thumbs up for 'TEA ROSE'. I got it for a X-mas gift back in 2008 & have been wearing it ever since. Love the light smell, not an over kill. I put
it on everyday. I walked into a store one day, & the sales lady said you are wearing TEA ROSE,
I said is it loud? NO it is such a pleasant scent. She said she loved it. So many times folks will say, what fragrance do you have on? The 12 stores that I have called,here in MN where I normally purchase at, states call back around
X-mas time. I stocked up on early this year.
So when I do see 'TEA ROSE', I buy 2-3 bottles @ a time. Right now I am on my last bottle.

I too used to buy Perfumer's Workshop products in Selfridges and was so upset when they disappeared. I still have a very small bottle of their Tuberose essential oil and they used to do a musk which I would give anything to find again. Since returning to the US I discovered Tea Rose and it is the only scent which people consistently comment on - always favorably!
