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.

Top Notes: Orange Blossom, Almond
Heart Notes: Rose Absolute, Tobacco Absolute
Base Notes: Tonka Bean Absolute, Vanilla Absolute, Amyris Wood Essence, Amber Woods

Almond vanilla goodness!

I received a sample of Velvet Tonka from Libertine with my last order and soon realised I needed a full bottle!

A heavenly vanilla almondy woody scent that immediately comforts me. The rose and orange blossom in this is not so obvious on me, I mostly get a rich warm vanilla marzipan note along with a hint of tobacco leaf in the dry down. A perfect Fall/Winter scent that envelops you and is almost reminiscent of fresh almond croissants in Paris. It’s a wonderful scent- could be rocked by a man if you prefer sweeter scents - with 6-8 hours longevity on my skin with a good sillage for the first 2-3 hours and then a closer to your body projection after that
