Within Guerlain Haute Parfumerie, Tonka Impériale belongs to L’Art & La Matière, a collection of olfactory masterpieces for true lovers of all things beautiful, born of the encounter between the finest raw materials and the talent of the House of Guerlain Perfumer.
Tonka Impériale is well-named indeed: a subtle blend of balmy scents, rich in contrasting facets, with accents of honey, gingerbread, almond and tobacco. An astonishing construction that blows hot and cold between the uplifting top notes and the sweet, pervasive fullness of tonka bean. Alluring and surprising, this cult ingredient gives the fragrance a rare and memorable personality.
The fragrance dresses up in a bottle with clean, contemporary lines, decorated with a golden metal label on the side, like a precious book. An elegant wooden cap adds the finishing touch to this beautiful piece. The bottle nestles in an amethyst “leather feel” case (which may be transformed into a jewellery box as you wish).
This warm and distinguished fragrance opens with the aromatic freshness of rosemary and enhances the woody and almond facets of tonka bean.
Top notes: bergamot, almond, rosemary. Heart notes: jasmine, tonka bean, tobacco. Base notes: frankincense, cedar wood, pine wood.

Tonka Impériale is constructed around one of the cult components of the Guerlain perfumer: the tonka bean. From Jicky to Shalimar, by way of Habit Rouge, this precious seed, originating in the forests of Venezuela, is one of its iconic raw materials. The warmth of the tonka bean is balanced here by a very fresh rosemary note. For men and women.
