In the laboratory, we paired that peppercorn scent with the zing of mandarin, and added a layer of depth and richness with warm woodland aromatics. The finishing touch is provided by the vanilla-tobacco notes of the tonka bean – its captivating earthiness holds the scent together, and gives our complex, exotic and cleanly elegant fragrance its name.
Exotic and indulgent Tonka – the latest fragrance from Laboratory Perfumes. Tonka’s story begins in a jar of pink peppercorns. Rummaging in the spice cupboard, we discovered that beneath their peppery notes, the dried berries of the Peruvian pepper tree have a finely balanced floral fruitiness to their aroma – which we believed would work wonderfully for our fourth fragrance.
