The Merchant of Venice - Accordi di Profumo - Tonka Venezuela
As warm and opulent as the family to which it belongs, Tonka Venezuela is a fragrance that brings out all the sensuality of the tonka bean, giving it a more modern and intriguing facet with its gourmand and delicately vanilla-like nuances.
From April to May in the region of Caura Basin in Venezuela tonka beans fall from their tree. The small nut which is found inside is then dried and roasted. Thanks to this process an addictive, gourmand scent occurs in the form of resinoid which is then distilled to become an absolute evoking caramel, cocoa, coffee as well as other imaginary delights.
Tonka Venezuela is a warm amber. Resins such as frankincense have been burned since antiquity, giving birth to word per-fumum, through smoke. Modern perfumery combines them with the sweet scent of vanilla and tonka in the creation of the abstract, warm and opulent ambery family.
The Accordi di Profumo can be worn individually or combined together as a tailor-made perfume.
Like colours, fragrances can be mixed to create a new one with its own unique nuances and facets.
