Laboratory Perfumes - Tonka Eau De Toilette
Exotic and indulgent Tonka – the fourth fragrance from Laboratory Perfumes. Tonka’s story begins in a jar of pink peppercorns. Rummaging in the spice cupboard, we discovered that beneath their peppery notes, the dried berries of the Peruvian pepper tree have a finely balanced floral fruitiness to their aroma – which we believed would work wonderfully for our fourth fragrance.
In the laboratory, we paired that peppercorn scent with the zing of mandarin, and added a layer of depth and richness with warm woodland aromatics. The finishing touch is provided by the vanilla-tobacco notes of the tonka bean – its captivating earthiness holds the scent together, and gives our complex, exotic and cleanly elegant fragrance its name.
Founded in 2011, British scent specialists Laboratory Perfumes craft unique, gender-free fragrances, scientifically formulated to react to the wearer and evolve over the day. Inspired by the natural flowers, herbs and aromatic botanicals of Britain and beyond, the range of scents and candles is made with natural oils, selected with care and blended with precision.
It’s a new method of making perfume the old-fashioned way.
Made in the UK using socially conscious, environmentally friendly and cruelty-free ingredients.
ECO & ETHICS
At Laboratory Perfumes, we try to look after the world. After all, it’s where both the inspiration and the ingredients for our fragrances come from. All our practices and perfumes are formed in accordance with the same Hippocratic principle underpinning modern medicine: ‘first, do no harm’.
All our scents and candles are made in the UK using socially conscious, environmentally friendly and cruelty-free ingredients. We don’t test on animals and our scents are created in our lab using essential and fragrant oils. All of them are skin-kind and free from parabens (Gorse does contain a small amount of phthalates & preservatives which are required to stabilise the citrus oils).
Lastly, all of our products are full compliant with the International Fragrance Association Standards.
Laboratory Perfumes fragrances are made with non-animal-derived ingredients and therefore vegan, and our scented candles are made with paraffin wax – with the exception of Atlas (our lab tests showed that this particular fragrance has to be infused into beeswax in order to preserve the integrity of the scent).
We demand the same ethical and environmental standards of everyone we work with – our supply chain is small, transparent, located entirely within the UK and fully adherent to ISO 9000: 2008. All glass, card and paper used in Laboratory Perfumes packaging is sustainably sourced and widely recycled.
Finally, Laboratory Perfumes fragrances are intended to be enjoyed by anyone and everyone. Gender is the one thing we really don’t care about.
