What are Tonka beans?

Tonka beans come from the tropical rainforests of Central and parts of South America. They are harvested from the Dipteryx Ordorata tree commonly referred to as Camaru or Brazilian teak. Once picked they're cured and dried, taking on the appearance of black, wrinkled bean about the size of an almond.

What does a Tonka bean smell like?

Tonka is a complex scent of wood and spice with undertones of tobacco that can lend a creamy, warm element to the fragrance composition.  Tonka is commonly used as a base note in perfumed products and gives a warm and welcoming aroma. The Tonka bean scent is often compared to Vanilla, which makes sense as Vanilla is also part of the gourmand fragrance family.

Tonka fragrance at Pott Candles

Tonka was one of the very first scented candles we launched. It is a much loved fragrance across the whole Pott community and we can understand why! It's sweet, warm scent is almost like a big hug and gives the most beautiful aroma. It's the perfect fragrance to have in a candle or diffuser, particularly during the colder months of the year. We offer the Tonka fragrance across our full range, from petite, standard and grand candle refills to diffuser oil.
