Tonka on warm skin
Bois Dore catches me every summer :)
I think it's because of these mineral notes that give me this summer feeling.
(between salty and sandy)
*Turquoise water - ice cream - sandy beach - the salty taste of sunny skin*

To the fragrance:
Bois Dore starts dry powdery with mineral notes. A peppery spice is also at the start and soon fine vanilla appears.
Holzig wird´s in the further course of fragrance. Fortunately, the cashmeran doesn't get on my nerves here.
A good shot of musk accompanies the dry powdery tonka bean, carried by wood, into the base. Musk and Tonka are always a great couple!
Bois Dore is creamy-dry powdery woody and despite vanilla and tonka rather unsweet.
The mineral notes remain in the fragrance, which I think is so beautiful and maybe that's why this Tonkaduft fits so well on warm skin.
A fragrance for the whole year (except when the temperature climbs to 30 degrees) but I think it can't unfold in cool temperatures. (For me personally the somewhat different summer scent - it doesn't always have to be fresh lemon!)
Shelf life is around 9 hours - the Sillage is outstanding. Too much sprayed kann´s sometimes happen that the Tonka starts to nerve ... less is more here ;)
In any case unisex!
The bottle in black piano lacquer is beautiful and simple.

Conclusion:
Summer feeling with mineral notes ... Tonka on warm skin!
Spicy- woody - dry powdery- unsweet
Tonka and musk are always an ingenious couple!

Shush dare you :)
(Tauer´s L'Eau is also such a summer candidate that falls out of line) !

They'll wrap me in Tonka
One of my absolute favorite fragrances. In winter, it wraps you in delicate vanilla and heavenly tonka bean and makes you almost forget the cold. The fragrance is really very warm, although it is written out as unisex, I find it rather feminine.
