Tonka bean is an ingredient full of contrasts, sometimes reminiscent of vanilla leather, sometimes of almonds, sometimes even revealing chocolatey facets. Velvet Tonka is characterized by its trilogy of tonka bean, orange blossom and almond. When worn on the skin, it coats it like an oriental delicacy dusted with icing sugar.
The balmy tonka bean is adorned with almonds and rose petals for a velvety touch, and with a hint of tobacco absolute to give it a honeyed feel. In the base, addictive notes of milky amyris wood unfurl, enhanced by ambroxan and vanilla absolute for an unparalleled velvetiness and sensuality.
Velvet Tonka is a tribute to the Moroccan origins of founder David Benedek and to the iconography associated with the region through its flavors and its landscapes, like a sweet, indulgent breeze coming straight from the Atlas Mountains.

Because the French artisans and the French industry of perfumery hold savoir-faire second to none, BDK Parfums choses to manufacture “Made in France” products created by French enterprises.
The bottle cap, developed in Paris by a master goldsmith, was shaped after the dome of the Grand Palais in Paris. This monument that holds so many of the French treasures is the symbol of a city where creation and liberty rules all.
The perfume bottle, with its angled edges, is made by a master glass blower based in Normandy. Re-burnt after being fabricated, it holds a unique transparency and brilliance, which enables it to enhance the colour of the fragrance it contains.
The label, applied by hand, was made by a printing house located in the Marais.
Finally, the box set, similar to a bookbinding, was crafted by a family run business in the region of Le Mans. The ink used natural and the paper recycled. When standing long side each other, this box set forms an encyclopaedia of wonderful perfumes.
