Tonkamande by Parfumerie Générale

Part of Parfumerie Générale Private Collection

Tonka beans and almond merge into 'Tonkamande'.

Tonkamande smells innocent and sinister at the same time. The infusion of tonka bean and almond milk reminds both of sweet pastry and bitter almond kernel smelling cyanides (at least according to Hercules Poirot).

Aldehydes sparkle in the heart notes before resting on a downy, feathered bed of tonka bean, wheat and amber.

An ethereal opalescent contrast between bitter and sweet, Tonkamande is a comforting & fluffy gourmand.
