Opulence à la Guerlain
A RADIANT, MULTIFACETED INTERPRETATION OF THE TONKA BEAN
Tonka bean reveals its most sublime facets, all at once almondy, powdery, vanilla-toned, woody, honeyed and balmy. In this woody-oriental, it reaches the pinnacle of its addictive appeal.
Enlivened by bitter almond and vanilla, its smooth accents and imperial facets are charmingly teased by the aromatic freshness of rosemary.
THE FRAGRANCE ARTIST'S TOUCH
Tonka bean meets rosemary for a surprising, addictive trail.
"If it were a painting, a canvas depicting the imperial feasts of Napoleon III."
Tonka Impériale evokes the opulence of the Second Empire, as transcribed on canvas in great splendour by Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux. These Parisian celebrations gave Guerlain as certain taste for all things gold and baroque.
One of the treasures found in the Guerlinade, Tonka bean absolute builds the irresistible trail of Tonka Impériale with its almond, tobacco and spicy facets.
The Tonka tree produces a precious fruit whose renowned beans are dried and crushed in order to extract the absolute.
Transcending time and trends, the Tonka bean asserts itself in the House’s most legendary compositions.
In the Perfumer's Words: "Tonka Impériale echoes jicky, in which tonka bean and rosemary play a decisive duet."
