BRAZILIAN TONKA BEAN
The Amazonian Indians view the tonka bean, which is the fruit of Brazilian teak tree, as a talisman. The word tonka is taken from Tupi (the language spoken by the Tupis of French Guiana and Brazil), where it is used as the tree’s name. The beans are harvested as they fall to the ground from August to September. When extracted they produce an absolute with a warm, gourmet aroma reminiscent of almonds.
When I created SELVA DO BRAZIL I had a vision of these moist, rich and deep notes that invite you to plunge ever deeper into the depths of the selva. Then I had no option but to get swallowed up by the immensity of this surprising, unpredictable green ocean. A line of Eaux de Parfum that is worthy of the Grand Cru appellation, distinguished by the exceptional seals on their bottles.
Our perfumers have scoured the world in search of the most precious ingredients to reveal all the subtlety and vivaciousness of Brazil to you.
The glass bottle with its sober, elegant lines is adorned with a black stopper marked with the seal of the Maison Berdoues and a label inspired by the codes of those French wines distinguished by the Grand Cru appellation.
