There is an old proverb that says “good things come to those who wait”. After three years of patience (Thé Noir 29 was the last offering in 2015), Le Labo fans have something to celebrate. For the new Le Labo Tonka 25, the company has enlisted Daphne Bugey of Firmenich who has collaborated with Creative Directors Fabrice Penot and Edouard Roschi since they founded the company in 2006 (our Modern Masterpiece Le Labo Rose 31 (2006), Bergamote 22 (2006), Neroli 36 (2006) and Lys 41 (2013).
Le Labo Tonka 25 ingredients
According to co-founder Edouard Roschi about the new Le Labo Tonka 25 “We wanted to work around Cedar Atlas and make this ingredient, a favorite of ours, emerge over time. Tonka felt like a good partner in embracing this wood with a dark and sensuous embrace… This one is dark. A good, addictive, warm dark, as if the humid summer underwoods, their seeds and resins, were sprinkled with layers of musks and sweetened with drops of vanilla. The perfumer’s notes say orange flower absolute, the unique cedar atlas, styrax resins, absolute tonka and musks… We say Le Labo Tonka 25.”
Le Labo Tonka 25 is the 17th fragrance for the company and will be in the Classic Collection (no scent mules to exotic cities required)
Available at Le Labo boutiques, online at select stockists and widely available wherever Le Labo is sold as of October 15th.
Size: 100ml / 50ml / 15ml/Price: 270 USD / 184 USD / 80 USD
