All our synthetic fragrance notes are premium grade, alcohol-free, phthalate-free, and undiluted. We work hard to ensure that your perfume ingredients are top-quality, highly concentrated, and will mix neatly with both alcohol and oil bases. These are not ready to wear as fragrances – they MUST be diluted before applying directly to skin. It is always a good idea to do a patch test for allergies, with both natural and synthetic materials. And of course – do not eat the oils. No matter how yummy they may smell.
Note: Although these are phthalate-free, they are NOT non-toxic. Don't eat them. Don't drink them. Patch test on skin. Dilute before wearing.
This is the only Tonka Bean I have ever smelled, so I have no other renditions to compare it to. As with most of Vetiver\'s oils though, it has a nice strong quality. It\'s a littl...view moree hard to describe imo. To me, it\'s kind of oily, nutty, creamy and a touch floral. I have read that people will sometimes use tonka bean as a substitute for vanilla. view less
