Exotic and indulgent Tonka – the fourth fragrance from Laboratory Perfumes. Tonka’s story begins in a jar of pink peppercorns. Rummaging in the spice cupboard, they discovered that beneath their peppery notes, the dried berries of the Peruvian pepper tree have a finely balanced floral fruitiness to their aroma – which they believed would work wonderfully for their fourth fragrance.
In the laboratory, that peppercorn scent was paired 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 this complex, exotic and cleanly elegant fragrance its name.
Founded in 2011, British scent specialists Laboratory Perfumes craft unique, gender-free fragrances, scientifically formulated to react to the wearer and evolve over the day. Inspired by the natural flowers, herbs and aromatic botanicals of Britain and beyond, the range of scents and candles is made from natural oils, selected with care and blended with precision.
It’s a new method of making perfume the old-fashioned way.
