3.5 out of 5
I’m not sure if this is really about the eponymous tonka, but I don’t care. I *love* it. I think the davana—a scent that reminds me of the smell of fresh dates, with their darkly fruity but slightly floral and grassy perfume—was responsible for making this fragrance so wonderful. It’s sweet without being cloying, sophisticated without being challenging, exotic without being too weird to wear, and it doesn’t really have a season. I wore this obsessively while I had my sample, and I should have bought a bottle when I could. I wish SB could bring it back. Five stars: original, interesting, complex, high quality, great performance, super versatile, and absolutely unisex in that it smells great on everyone. I miss it terribly. If anyone knows of anything like it, please tell me :)
This scent just arrived! It smells so nice, warm and feminine. My husband and I both really like this scent.
I love this! It’s very soft and sensual.
too powdery for me
not my favorite. I love their other scents though
I love this fragrance! It transports me to winter, snow days as a kid, snuggling in my pjs, after a hot bath wrapped in a nice fluffy blanket with the rain & wind howling outside! I find it to be such a "wrap around me scent" that wears like my own personal security blanket! Beware, this fragrance is strong & lasts well into the night! I can smell Tonka even on a day when I've chosen to go fragrance bare & I'll climb under the covers at night. I'm suddenly wrapped in the warmth of Tonka & the heartwarming memories of my childhood flooding back! I've found people either love Tonka or they can't stand it. Keep in mind, the people that dislike it, don't like fragrance period. So if scents give you migraines, you might want to stay away from this one. However, I get migraines & it really just depends on the scent. Tonka does not give me migraines. So take away what you like fellow migraine sufferers! Now, on the flip side, I have received so many compliments & "What are you wearing?" type questions when I wear Tonka! Normally I'd say this a fall/winter fragrance & not the 113° days before adding humidity, which makes "the feels like," closer to 120°+++! Welcome to the DFW metroplex! However, this is a "memory fragrance" for me & anytime seems the right time, especially when I want to feel the emotions the memories evoke! I don't make the rules, I just break them! I've found fragrances that evoke all kinds of emotions! However, it is rare to find a fragrance that pulls the thread of a memory from our past! And just keeps pulling! Even rarer yet is to find a scent that just outright kicks you in the gut! That is a review for a another day and a different fragrance! Hopefully Scentbird will start carrying Masion Margelia so I can tell that story. I still have this tiny sample I keep with me everywhere I go. When I smell it it's like Alice falling down the Rabbit Hole! Can I add all of the Derek Lam 10 Crosby Street & Atelier Cologne brands to the Scentbird request list too?
Great review! I’m in Dallas too :)
I always get a ton of compliments while wearing this. Lovely warm fragrance, perfect for fall or winter.
Not a fan!
I had high hopes for this fragrance as I loved Gold Commodity. This is very powdery & over powering. Could never bring myself to wear this after the first spray.
I liked the sweetness of this scent, but it is not too overpowering. great addition to my collection
LOL - for "laugh out loud", and "little old lady". Tonka bean has a very powdery scent. This fragrance is a lovely blend of the powdery tonka, warm sandalwood, and creamy almond. I get no fruit, or flowers, just a soft, sexy powder. Give it a chance to bloom on the skin, or under your clothes. It will smell much better than straight out of the bottle, or just on your wrist.
Very nice scent!
Wasn't sure I was going to like this but turns out, it's very nice. I'm glad I chose to add this to my collection
This fragrance smells nice. It's sweet. Gourmand-like. However, I don't find that the Commodity fragrances have good projection/sillage or longevity. I swear it lasts all of 5-10 minutes.
Vanilla on steroids
Sweet, powdery but kinda masculine too. It makes me feel invincible when I wear it. Like a power suit in fragrance form.
It was way to strong and it reminded me of an old lady. It was not my style or something I would wear. I will be tossing this one.
It smells amazing smelling like if you took citrus fruit in an old book story
This scent was terrible. Reminded me of baby powder and old things. Super disappointed this month. Will be tossing this one.
This scent was VERY strong and not in a good way.
This smells like the ladies body splash, Je' ne te, from the 70s. I do not recommend it.
If you love the smell of about a half dozen 85 year old ladies... your search is over! Plain awful!!!
Nice fragrance, last a while as well.
I did not like this one too musky
It is not a bad scent, but I wish it smelt more feminine if that makes and sense.
I did like it but it's bordering a little too much on the unisex line so I probably won't be using it as often as I thought I would. It smells really great though, it's just not for me.
Smells great! I do have to reapply. I haven't received any compliments yet on it so we shall see. I also haven't gone nose blind to it which I usually do with other fragrances. Would definitely order again!
I did like it. But it smells too much like a man's cologne. Gave it to my husband.
I love the fresh powder smell with the bold sandalwood smell lingering after you pass. I sprayed my daughter and had her walk past me so I could see what others would smell from me LoL. Exactly what I was going for!!
This is a step up in amber/vanilla/ sweet from its sister scent Gold. It's amazing, it has a hint of clean laundry to it to make it sophisticated and delicious! Anything by Commodity is well worth it.
this was so dry and powedery it gave me a headache by the end of the day.
After the dry down on my skin, tonka smells really nice. it is very light and smells like a combination of baby oil, baby powder and a light musk. The problem is the scent does not last long.
It's light and doesn't seem to stay on long, but it's sort of a spicy floral while it lasts.
Loved the smell! Such a complimentary light scent you can wear everyday.
Did not like it at all! Smells too powdery for my taste
Smells awesome!!!! Love! Love!
smells great!! very good staying power also, will probably purchase a full-size bottle sometime in near future.
I was not expecting this to smell like baby powder. Yuck
Really like this scent- reminds me of the men's version of Santa Fe but sweeter. Opening notes are powdery and slightly medicinal (like the smell of carmex) , but fast turns into gourmand bliss! A little on the woody side of sweet. Very nice!
As others have mentioned, at first the opening notes are as if you slapped yourself with a hand full of powder, however the middle and base notes are quite intriguing and warm, very sweet, almost like cinnamon with a touch of tobacco, quite sexy. It definitely is a warm scent with great lasting power. It's not so much of a spring/summer scent but very well could be if mixing it as a cocktail with a fresher Commodity scent, like Bergamot, Gin, or even Book!
LOVED this scent. It's worth trying, very rich.
When you first spray this scent, it is like you have just been dusted in powder. After awhile it does wear down to more of a musky leather, slightly coffeehouse scent. It doesn't last very long on me, but still enjoy it.
Casual, fun scent
This is just a little To sweet strong for me. I like it after it wears for a few hours. I can honestly say I wouldn't buy this. Although I do think they are great lasting perfumes. I can't wait to try the others.
This is not terrible, but reading the card for the March 'scent of the month', I do wish I'd have gotten that instead, as this just isn't quite what I'd hoped. That said, it is powdery and dry, not quite as warm as I'd hoped with the tonka and nutmeg, which are present, but I smell more of the leather and something sort of musky and woodsy than those notes. That said, I suspect this would actually play quite warm and cozy on a man, as these notes that read more masculine tend to dry out and cool down on my skin, I've noticed.
Super fragrance for a night out. Sweet and delicious
Adore. My new signature accent. But it does have a powdery note, so avoid if you dislike. Lasts forever!
Not a huge fan. Has a powder smell. Reminds me of dryer sheets
Strong at first but once it settles it's really lovely. Can't really see this being a masculine scent - it's on the sweeter side. The sandalwood is very apparent and on the powdery side so stay away if you don't like scents like that. The floral is non-existent. It is definitely more of a "mysterious" scent and I love it.
