Tonka 'Beans' are the seeds from the fruit of a large tree, Dipteryx odorata. The seed is removed from the ripe fruit and is dried and soaked in alcohol or rum for 12 to 24 hours. The seeds then swell and when they are removed from the alcohol bath, they shrink on drying, and on the surface appears the well known crystalline frosting of coumarin.

Tonka Absolute is a semi-solid or crystalline mass of pale amber or pale brownish-yellow color. Its odor is very rich, sweet and warm, distinctly coumarinic-herbaceous, with a prune-like or carmellic-sweet undertone. The odor description 'tobacco-like' is somewhat confusing since Tonka tincture has been used quite extensively in the flavoring of cured tobacco leaves.

Extravagant and seductive, Tonka Bean adds a lush and heady vanilla basenote. It is a valuable tool for to any accord that you wish to deepen. In addition to the Vanilla like qualities, I detect notes of butterscotch and amber. Tonka is utterly magnificent.

I have added Tonka to Benzoin, Vanilla, and Ambrette. It is also a wonderful base for Patchouli, Geranium, Sandalwood, Rose and all the other rich floral notes. Tonka is also a lovely ally for the sweeter citrus's that would take up the top of your perfume.

Tonka's metaphysical properties extend to protection and prosperity blends.

Long lasting and rich, it is economical in the sense that the merest hint of Tonka will allow you to create a sensual Oriental flair.

There is not a renegade note in the bouquet of Tonka, just a gentle harmonious luster.

Blend Tonka Absolute Extra - well with Lavender, Lavandin, Clary sage, Flouve.

Caution: Tonka Absolute cannot be used in flavors in the USA and those Countries where a coumarin ban exists.
