Tonka bean is an ingredient full of contrasts, sometimes reminiscent of vanilla leather, sometimes of almonds, sometimes even revealing chocolatey facets. Velvet Tonka is characterized by its trilogy of tonka bean, orange blossom and almond. When worn on the skin, it coats it like an oriental delicacy dusted with icing sugar.
The balmy tonka bean is adorned with almonds and rose petals for a velvety touch, and with a hint of tobacco absolute to give it a honeyed feel. In the base, addictive notes of milky amyris wood unfurl, enhanced by ambroxan and vanilla absolute for an unparalleled velvetiness and sensuality.
Velvet Tonka is a tribute to the Moroccan origins of founder David Benedek and to the iconography associated with the region through its flavors and its landscapes, like a sweet, indulgent breeze coming straight from the Atlas Mountains.

Warm Comforting Delicious
This is a wonderful gourmand that holds back on the "too sweet"ness. It's a nuzzler and has quickly become my comforting go to. I love to wear fragrance to bed that has "presence" , but is still soft and soothing. And if a ghostly hint of it remains on my sheets and skin, all the better. This one always puts a smile on my face and has quickly become one of favourites on regular rotation. There is something magical about tonka - mixed with vanilla, it adds an earthiness that keeps it from being too sweet. On it's own, it's full, deep, and very sexy. This is a love for me.
