Tonka Lavande pairs lavender with the subtly gourmand combination of almond and tonka bean. With an aromatic start of herbs -rosemary and sage- that give a much greener, herbal lavender than usual. The tonka arrives to add warmth through the coumarin inherent in it, resulting in a stunningly sensual and chic composition.
It stays close to the skin and has a 10-12 hour longevity.

Marie Jeanne uses natural, cruelty-free natural essences in all its products. Working with Robertet perfumers, Marie Jeanne founder George Maubert – scion of a family that has been very influential in the perfume industry since 1850 – focuses on creating stripped-down, elegant compositions that emphasize the native variety of their ingredients.
Robertet is a bit like De Beers of the fine natural perfume materials - matières premières; for decades, they have been dealing with the finest, purest, and most precious stuff a perfumer can dream of.
