Try #3 (why am I so determined?)
I actually left the lid off the tin for about 30 hours to see if I could calm some of this down. It helped . . . some.
While the scent is no longer overwhelming, it still tastes really artificial and for the life of me there is still no sign of vanilla, bergamot, or tea for that matter.
I think its time for me to give up. I’d see if I could give it away to someone, but with the pandemic, easier said than done. I think its got to go in the trash, I just need to make sure I do it and take it out immediately. I do not want the smell to linger.
