Reminiscent of rich vanilla with touches of cinnamon, saffron, almond and clove, the journey of the humble Tonka bean becoming a staple of perfumery began in 1793, when cultivation of this native South American plant began in France as a tropical tree with beautiful purple flowers, each containing one wrinkled, black bean.

The Tonka bean played a role in South American pagan and occult traditions before finding fame in perfumery.  In addition to being used in herbal tea to boost immunity, legend provides that holding the bean while whispering a wish will lead to its fulfilment.

Our Flowering Tonka cologne adds the light crispness of the flower to the more traditional, rich vanilla scent of the bean, creating an interesting and integrated contrast between the two.

Did you know that The Library of Fragrance colognes can be layered to create scents that are unique to you? Mix and match any two, or more, to create combinations for every mood and occasion. Here are some suggestions to try with Flowering Tonka:

  • To add a clean note, layer with Musk #7
  • To add a floral note, layer with Violet
  • To add a fresh note, layer with Salt Air
  • To add a fruity note, layer with Fresh Coconut
  • To add a green note, layer with Grass
  • To add a sweet note, layer with Marshmallow
  • To add a woody / spicy note, layer with Sandalwood

Confused about the difference between cologne and perfume, parfum, eau de parfum, eau de toilette and/or aftershave? These different names simply refer to the concentration of fragrance oil within the bottle. All our fragrances are colognes, which means that they contain between 2-8% of fragrance oil. All of our products are unisex; we don't believe that fragrance has a gender.
