Can't believe I never reviewed this. I find it so soothing and perfect in any situation, any occasion - understated and simultaneously cozy and seductive. I thought to review it now because despite the recent heat and humidity we've had I am still wearing it - to work, or as a spritz in the evening just to lift my spirits. It never feels too heavy or oppressive... a really great …Read more

Vanille Tonka is a very incensy vanilla, like a much-simplified Shalimar or Youth Dew in that regard. The incense is very pronounced in VT. A little bit of frankincense goes a long way with me and can easily become off-putting.

This really reminds me of Jicky but without the lavender. I will keep testing it before I write a full review.

This is a warm, spicy skin scent. Lasting power is great, and can be layered with other fragrance. Initially I get mostly sweet pine and licorice. Then it settles down to a lovely vanilla tonka. Cozy and cuddly.

I sniffed this one morning before breakfast, on an empty stomach and I cannot tell you how sickening this was. Not what I expected in a Vanilla. This is definatley a masculine fragrance.There's something very sharp, bitter and almost sour. I tried it again on a full stomache and got the very same thing.

I think this is coming to be my favorite PdN perfume after all, although I can't say this line has awed me so far. The more I put this on, the more I like it. It's a smoky vanilla, a sweet one to be sure, but without any notes of caramel or burnt sugar. The incense makes it somewhat dark and less girly than the usual vanilla scents -like the Body Shop type- and more interesting. Lasting …Read more

Took me a few wearings to figure out what the initial scent was on me. Finally got it—it’s camphor. As in mothballs. That does fade out, it was just a bit suprising at first. On drydown (about 20 minutes), it loses the straight camphor, and becomes a subtle incense with an undercurrent of vanilla. Definitely an adult vanilla based perfume, which is pretty difficult to find. Has an ‘I live …Read more

This fragrance starts off really great. Actually I made the same experience as the reviewer who came before me. The citrus note was exquisite upon application as the tangerine note is so dominant. However when the fragrance settles down I am bombarded with the aroma of burned vanilla which turned bitter as the day wore on.


For lovers of Tonka Bean and Incense I think this …

This opens with a burst of the tangerine and lime (as per Luckyscent's note list) which just smelt like lemon to me and I immediately thought WHY?? It only lasts like 2 minutes so really i repeat - why? why bother? once the citrus is gone it disappears for good, but i dont really want to have my vanilla with a side of citrus anyway so thumbs down to that! The vanilla that comes out is smokey …Read more

I sampled this recently and I did like it. It was close to love but it's a bit quirky for me with the twist re. the incense . Maybe later ! Definitely a good quality fragrance from a talented perfumer.
