№ 06 - Mémoire Collective
Like a sunrise in August...
Comfort is a cocktail of safety, warmth and love. It is the fundamental elixir of life, the basis of happiness. No. 06 Mémoire Collective captures with its gentleness these moments that remind us of our humanity - in all its facets, its longings, its sensuality.
Like a Garden of Eden, notes of violet, iris, rose, mimosa, grapefruit, grapes and beguiling ylang-ylang surround us. Sandalwood and vetiver ground our senses, giving structure and strength. No. 06 Mémoire Collective is an ode to love, a fragrance shaped by comfort and confidence. Life is cheerful and friendly again, embraces us in a warm and soft way. Like a warming sunrise on a Sunday in August.
№ 16 - Jardin Vertical
We have a vision: 21st century cities are becoming greener, wild, natural. They are urban art forms and botanical wonders. This is more than just a trend. Thinking green is part of urban life. A life increasingly shaped by sustainability.
No. 16 Jardin Vertical is all about growth, mindfulness and hope. Therefore, our fragrance is greener than green. Rice forms the heart, precious sandalwood and atlas cedar are added; white tea, fig, musk and ambergris make it irresistible.
№ 30 - Thé Arabique
On the banks of the Nile
There are the banks of the Nile with its lush green vegetation, sugar cane fields and orchards. There are the fellahs who today, as thousands of years hence, use the land for agriculture. Who suddenly pause with a strong black tea and look on the everlasting course of the river. It is the memory of a magical place, a dreamy sunset at Aswan, right on the threshold of the first Nile cataract…
The enthusiasm for the culture of Egypt and for whose people, flavors and tastes inspired Frau Tonis Parfum to fragrance No. 30 Thé Arabique. This rich Eau de Parfum smells of notes of black tea, ripe quince, dry Irish whiskey, gurjun balm, musk and vanilla. This passionate fragrance generates a warm heart and plays with a hint of sweetness.
№ 08 - Été Éternel
Those were the waning days of summer: every last flower had blossomed, the sun shone and the summer seemed to stretch on eternally… Été Éternel is a lush ode to summer. Mixing fresh orange blossom, cool bergamot, tuberose and iris - it is an opulent, sunny fragrance with a warm sandalwood accord and a touch of vanilla.
What sets this scent apart from the rest? No. 08 Été Éternel is intense with a complex and engaging sillage. It is simply overwhelming, one has the sense of diving deep into a sea of delicate flowers. It is a regal scent for the whole year which recalls midsummer's eves spent by the river with a cool rosé.
Scent as inspiration – Été Éternel is pure euphoria.
№ 25 Bouquin
Exquisite and mysterious...
No. 25 Bouquin takes me on a journey to terra incognita. The morning is clear, earthy papyrus and delicate bergamot blossoms surround an embarkment on the river. A young trader hands me a bowl of spicy cardamom. I drink a cup of tea that smells like lush white flowers. My story begins here …
For the launch of this fragrance we teamed up with Reclam and created a limited edition: No. 25 Bouquin & Kurt Tucholsky´s novel “Rheinsberg”.
Frau Tonis’ latest creation breathes precious sandalwood, sensuous amber with a touch of exotic Madagascan vanilla. Soft, fresh notes of bergamot, Sicilian lemon and cardamom, combined with Florentine iris, rose blossom and violet. White musk makes this fragrance mysterious, delicate and exquisite.
№ 17 Laundrette
Smell the Summer!
In the hotel room in Aix-en-Provence just next to the market square, the bed with white, fine linen, exudes the softness of early summer. Long sun rays light up the room. Through the room blows the scent that I know from the small French laundries ...
No. 17 Laundrette by Frau Tonis Parfum is an ode to the color white. To the incomparable sense of purity. In it we smell a delicate, almost transparent fragrance. Pure, gentle, clean. Freesia, iris, white flowers and a hint of tart black currant combined with elegant Provençal cypress trees. Amber and white musk nestle against one another to round out its lithe effervescence.
№ 21 Berlin
Vibrant and young
Berlin is a place of inspiration. Berlin: where the project of your life can be realized without giving up individuality. In addition: you have the chance to become a real Berliner in a few years. While in other cities you will always be a newcomer.
How can this feeling be expressed olfactorily? In fragrance No. 21 Berlin dry bergamot meets lively lemon, cedar meets cardamom. Flowers of water lilies cap off this creative fragrance. Lively, young, vibrant.
Cool and elegant
Munich may be happier... Berlin is possibly more exciting... But Hamburg has the most class. The essence of Hanseatic is a cool greige, a subtle composition borne of low hanging clouds and sand.
Clear and elegant like the far North is fragrance No. 22 Hamburg. Maritime notes mate with peppermint. Fine cedar, sandalwood and delicate iris flowers make the scent magnificently refined.
№ 68 - New York
Like a well mixed mocktail
New York. Here, the energy of the city drives me on and on. It inspires me. Every second, something new is to be discovered. So much talent in so little space, so many possibilities. I want to lose myself in the neighborhoods and depths of the street canyons. Here I always feel in good hands. I love this city!
Bergamot, apple and cedar wood dominate this lively cologne. Watermelon, reed, amber and a trace of patchouli give No. 68 New York a wild, impetuous kick.
№ 37 - Violet
The violet diva
According to several sources, the Berlin-born actress Marlene Dietrich was captivated by our fragrance No. 37 Violet: a signature scent which accompanied her during her incomparable performances on the silver screen. Eccentric, self assured and loud - a unique and outlandish perfume in which violet, raspberry and licorice notes make unlikely bed fellows.
She cast herself as a femme fatale who knew what she wanted and how to get it. Close your eyes and imagine the iconic, androgynous face of Marlene Dietrich. See her slender, noirish silhouette and breath in deeply the extravagant odor of her violet fragrance… The roaring twenties are back!
№ 02 - Berlin Summer
Berlin, your face has freckles…
"Lemon! Morning dew!" call the senses. The long winter has passed and suddenly hot April is here. The new scents and new life bring with them pure delight. For the first day without stockings, for the rediscovered ease of being: No. 02 Berlin Summer. A euphoriant mashing fruity notes, fresh peppermint and lemon balm into blissful ambrosia. A scent that captures the light-heartedness of Berlin summer: fresh, crisp, a classic!
№ 33 - VILD
These are VILD times
For times like these, characterised by irritation and uncertainty, FRAU TONIS PARFUM has developed a perfume to inspire resistance, independence and audacity.
The new fragrance, No. 33 VILD sets itself apart from the mainstream. VILD is intentionally not a delicate floral perfume, and does not exist to serve the pleasure of others or to assist in art of seduction. Instead an atypical unisex scent has been created which is independent, uncompromising and beguiling.
No. 33 VILD – Stay rebellious, free and courageous.
Unusually concentrated dosages of saffron and suede find an unlikely complement with notes of raspberries, roast aromas and thyme. Amber and midnight jasmine round out No. 33 VILD, a real statement perfume.
№ 18 - Bogota Berlin
If “Scent Pope” Chandler Burr is a fan, then it must be a very special perfume. No. 18 Bogota Berlin contains exciting aromas from opposing worlds. Like a fresh wind blowing through an ever-present past, Berlin is the sum of all places where the future is written.
The legendary Hotel Bogota, to which this fragrance is dedicated, was such a place: Artists such as Wim Wenders, Mario Testino and Hannah Schygulla resided here. Helmut Newton became a photographer under the tutelage of Yva in this house. Berlin was and is constantly changing. Time and time again people enrich the city with their concepts and creations, with their yearning, their tolerance, their visions and their craziness.
In our homage to Hotel Bogota, opposites attract as fruity fig meets hot-pink peppers, powdery-sweet violet meets barbershop-fresh cedar while each are countered with invigorating vetiver. In No. 18 Bogota Berlin it is the juxtaposition of fruity and spicy, fresh and soft that gives this Eau de Parfum its allure.
№19 Oud Weiss
Sensuous and luxurious
Precious Oud has been described as heavenly and luxurious since at least the Bronze Age. Some of the world’s oldest surviving writings remark on Oud’s strong link with sensuous pursuits. No. 19 Oud Weiss is of such an inimitable beauty that, for us, only one word can describe this Eau de Parfum: love.
Oud, free of the myth of absolute seduction, shines with fresh bergamot. A fragrance for every day, unobtrusive and yet exciting at the same time. The air is enriched with incense, tobacco and sandalwood. This scent is vegan.
