Almond & Tonka: the new Berdoues eau de toilette
Henri Berdoues then arrived in 1936, ceding his place to Pierre Berdoues in 1970. Now, embodying the fourth generation of the family to lead this business with passion, it is Sophie Berdoues’ turn to continue this heritage. To pay tribute to her elders, she imagined the 1902 collection, the date on which the Berdoues house was born. Today, a newcomer joins this assortment of perfumes. It is called Almond & amp; Tonka.
Berdoues 1902 collection, a dive into history
As you can see, the 1902 collection by Berdoues pays tribute to the more than a century old history of this exceptional brand. Berdoues has been conveying all of its precious know-how around the world for several decades. On the strength of these innovations, without ever forgetting anything of its heritage, the brand has successfully survived the ages. In perpetual quest for modernity, Berdoues changes register here and reminds us of the beginnings of our perfumery. Indeed, until the beginning of the last century, men and women almost exclusively perfumed themselves with Eaux de Cologne. The cult freshness of these products thus remains deeply rooted in the collective imagination. Even subconsciously, we are all drawn to the invigorating and invigorating scents. Here, Berdoues reinterprets them with daring. Almond & amp; Tonka seems to have in him all the Berdou love for high perfumery. “Always rocked by raw materials, I grew up surrounded by creations developed by my grandfather and my father and all the emotions they provide,” explains Sophie Berdoues. Today, I am committed to cultivating our know-how and revealing the raw materials, to offer the most beautiful creations ”.
Almond & amp; Tonka, a light but warm fragrance
Like all the perfumes in the 1902 collection, Amande & amp; Tonka revolves around one ingredient in particular. Here it is the almond. Indeed, as the name of this essence suggests, the tonka bean is present, but it only reinforces the almond and powdery notes of this composition. It is this which gives it all its originality. Almond & amp; Tonka comes in a 100 ml spray bottle, cylindrical in shape, common to all the fragrances in the same range. Here, the transparency of the walls of this bottle reveals a yellow and sunny juice. A label bearing his name appears soberly on its front face. The set is topped with a more contemporary chrome cap. In reality, no one can really give an age to this design, any more than to the recipe it contains. Almond & amp; Tonka has all the soul of the old Eaux de Cologne, while preserving more tenacity and a warm side, which was untapped 100 years ago. Almond & amp; Tonka begins with a fresh and vegetal alliance of grass, violet leaf and pear. Then, her heart explores a feminine register based on mimosa and hawthorn. It is also at this moment that the almond makes its appearance. It all ends with a more pronounced sensuality of musk, sandalwood and tonka bean.
