Jo Malone London Myrrh & Tonka Cologne Intense is a great fragrance for those who are looking for something different. If you enjoy warm sensual scents with a soft vanilla twist then you should check it out.
Myrrh & Tonka is a wonderful companion throughout the day. The interplay of incense, a subtle floral note and just on the tonka bean, coupled with a slight sweetness makes this fragrance really unique and fits wonderfully in the transition months or even in the winter.
It has a good durability and can fill smaller rooms well. Immediately I found myself in a field of lavender, clean and soapy, fresh, standing there marvelling at the purple opening of this wonderful fragrance.
This overture could be a bit more enduring, but the following combination of lavender and myrrh is also very attractive. Softly and gently I am carried by it, waved around by a flattering, comforting warmth. Later it is accompanied by a fine powdery almond and a hint of vanilla.
Top Note – Lavender
Heart Note – Omumbiri Myrrh
Base – Tonka Bean, Vanilla & Almond
The lavender works really well with the warm notes in the composition and as it wears it becomes super soft and skin-like. The Tonka Bean gives it a lovely creaminess that the sweetness of the almond sits really well with. To me it is floral but not overly lavender-y. There’s a little burst of it at the beginning but I don’t think it’s enough to put off anyone with an aversion to lavender, when the richness and warmth of the Omumbiri Myrrh, harvested in Namibia, takes over.
Mryhh and Tonka is the sexiest cologne from the entire intense cologne collection. It’s a perfect combination of Vanilla and Smokiness from Myrrh. People always give me compliments whenever I have it on. Absolute favorite date night scent. Ladies y’all need to have this! Even tho it’s unisex.
