Beautiful gourmand
A perfect gourmand - sweet, but not too sweet. Vanilla is balanced by patchouli. Rum ads tartness so the composition is not sticky. Patchouli has this chocolate soft quality to it. The only thing I cannot separate out in front of my mental eye is tonka bean. But who cares? It is a beautiful balanced gourmand perfume. Kind of like a perfume other gourmands should be measured by.

For this experimental house this perfume is almost too "normal", because I see how a lot of people might like it. It's not one of the unexpected experiments I otherwise know the house for. But there is nothing wrong with making a perfect commercially viable fragrance to support the experiments that might not attract as many customers.

I would try to get a bottle of it.

... short and sweet...
He's right there, right there, right there, right ready to go.

Tonka Fever starts directly with a peppery note, the first seconds almost biting. After a few minutes Tonka Bean/Vanilla is added. They're both on the same page for a long time.
After approx. 30 minutes Tonka bean passes the vanilla, which is still trying to stay at the same height. She does it once in a while, too. They take turns.
A spirit chord joins in third place, slightly behind the vanilla and tonka bean.
But rum? Not so much.

He reminds my colleague of a visit in a Gindestillerie:-), which reminds thereby easily of Wachholder, although the aforementioned does not occur in the smell pyramid.
Also mixable with the pepper notes.

Hendricks Gin with pepper and some cucumber:-)? Here we let the cucumber out of course:-).
Smoky and very minimal leathery notes replace it after about 1 hour.

Patchouli is also present in these small nuances.

Shelf life:
It's okay. Depending on skin type 7-11 hours

In 1m distance good and long perceptible.

I like the interplay of cement grey and black here.

It's a beautiful fragrance, there's no other way to put it. If it's worth 190€, I'll put it there. That's for everyone to decide for themselves.

Clear unisex scent, wouldn't say if more lady or more gentleman.
