Review of Guerlain Tonka Imperiale

From Now Smell This - "it veers off in other directions shortly: a bit of citrus, something strongly herbal and aromatic (that only registers as rosemary because I know it's listed in the notes), then loads of bitter almond, then dry hay + dry tobacco. By the 15 minute mark, it's foody and sweet; Sylvaine Delacourte of Guerlain describes it as "between gingerbread and chocolate", and to that I'd add amaretti cookies drizzled with honey. If that sounds overwhelming, I'll add that the richness of the opening does not last — it feels nearly transparent on skin, and the bitter and spicy elements counter the sugar nicely. It has less of a "vanilla comfort scent" feel than Spiritueuse Double Vanille, and after hitting a high point on the sugar scale at around 40 minutes, it slowly gets drier and woodier as it continues to develop."

From Bois de Jasmin - "Yet, I found that on skin Tonka Impériale is an absolute delight—it forms a beautiful, intimate aura of leather, almond praline and tobacco."

From Perfume Posse - "they are edges I can live with, it lets me breathe into the parts that I’m not sure I like, while savoring that rich, mesmerizing almost roasted dessert.  Maybe it’s the rosemary that throws me?    Just as I’m sinking into this sinful, tasteful gourmand, it buzzes my nose a little, and gives a discordance that isn’t jarring, but makes me think about what I’m smelling again.  Enough that I can never get quite easy with it."

    Great vanilla

    This is a lovely vanilla, slightly powdery with a tart edge and a smooth base. I don't want to love it because it's seriously expensive, but it's really delicious. Upside, it reminds me of BBW Smoked Vanilla, which is similar and much much cheaper. Not the same league of quality, but might prove a balm.

    sweet and femenine

    I consider this to be a femenine scent, too sweet for a men IMHO, yet I could see some men pulling this off, but unfortunately, not me.

    Terrific Scent!

    I first put my nose on this fragrance in Detroit last year. Ordered a sample to give it another try and it still remains a beautiful skin scent. I wished the sillage and projection was a little more.

    Sweet Tobacco

    The initial blast of candied almonds is almost too much, and then the tobacco notes start to appear and make this perfume incredibly Yummy. It is very sweet, and soft and perfect for a cold winter day. My only real complaint is that it does not last very long and has a weak scent trail.
