Tonka Bean Perfume Base Note

Tonka Bean Absolute

Regular price $15.00
/
Tonka bean (technically the seed of the plant Dipteryx odorata) produces an extract prized for its deep, multi-faceted character. This scent has been compared to vanilla, to tobacco, to sun-dried hay—think of it as a rustic dessert, without too much sugar, that can round off an olfactory menu.
7ml glass bottle with built-in dropper. Partially diluted in perfume alcohol. Contains enough fragrance to create 6 or more 10ml perfumes.

All notes are partially diluted in perfume alcohol to make them easy to blend together. Always dilute further (10x) before applying to your skin. Each note should be no more than 10% of your final blend. For example, if you're making a 10ml perfume, use no more than 1ml of each note. If you only want to use a few notes in your blend, use perfume alcohol to reach the 10ml mark.

Don't apply directly to skin before diluting further (see Dilution & Safety). Store tightly sealed bottles in a dry place away from light and heat.
