■ Tonka bean Abs. with the scent of Sakuramochi
Just say "the smell of sakura mochi" and everyone will know what it is; just like cherry blossoms, this scent may be familiar to most Japanese people.
Similar scents can be found elsewhere, such as the scent of almond tofu and the scent of fujibakama, one of the seven autumn herbs sung about in the Manyoshu.
Apricot kernel is the seed of the apricot, but it has a scent similar to almonds and is sometimes used as a substitute. The common aromatic component is coumarin.
The scent that is familiar in Japan, China, and Asia is also found in Europe, and is provided by the "tonka" bean.
Tonka was especially popular in France, the country that produced it, and high-end perfume makers use it in their formulas.
Coumarin has a structure similar to that of vanilla, and is sometimes used as a substitute for vanilla in the world of fragrance, but it has a depth that is different from vanilla.
How can plants produce such an alluring scent? The scent of flowers is to attract insects that help with pollination, but coumarin is not scented when the flowers are in bloom.
Rather, it seems to be a smell that is released to protect the body and keep pests away.
It's no wonder we are intoxicated by the mysterious scent that is a plant's survival strategy.

■The roots of the raw material plant are in the Amazon. The raw material for Tonka Beans Abs. is the seeds of a tree called "Cumaru," a tall tree that grows in the tropical rainforests of Central America and northern South America and reaches a height of 25 to 30 meters.
Tree of Life's Tonka Bean Abs. are sourced from the Amazon region of Brazil.
The scientific name of the kumaru tree is Dipteryx odorata.
The specific name "odorata" means fragrant in Latin.
It is named after a fragrant plant, just as ylang-ylang essential oil (scientific name: Cananga odorata) and violet essential oil (scientific name: Viola odrata) have the same specific name.

The fruits of the kumaru tree fall naturally from August to September and are picked by their sweet scent.
The fruit is split open and the long, brown seeds, about 3cm long, are removed and dried.
When the surface of the seeds turns black and wrinkled, and eventually crystals of the sweet aromatic component coumarin precipitate, they are called dried tonka beans, or "tonka beans."

In the European sweets industry, dried tonka beans are a popular natural flavouring, alongside vanilla beans, and an essential ingredient in gourmet desserts.
Pastry chefs chop dried tonka beans to flavour creams and chocolates, and also use them in stollen, a German Christmas cake.
Although similar in flavor to vanilla beans, tonka beans have a more complex and exotic flavor.

Note: The flavor (food) used is dried tonka beans.
Please note that "Tonka Bean Abs. (10% diluted) essential oil" extracted from dried tonka beans cannot be used for edible purposes.

■Blending advice from Tree of Life perfumerThis essential oil is essential for the image of spring and cherry blossoms.
The soft, fluffy, powdery sweetness, reminiscent of sakura mochi, brings to mind the scent of spring cherry blossoms.
The sweetness envelopes you like melting honey or rich, milky vanilla ice cream.
The sweet aroma of almond powder wafts through the almond tofu.
It has an attractively rich aroma with a variety of sweetness, spicy and fruity notes coexisting together.
This is a fragrance that I would like to use in gourmand creations such as sweet desserts.
Coumarin is also found in trace amounts in lavender, bergamot, and cinnamon bark essential oils, making it a recommended accompaniment to Tonka Bean Abs.

This essential oil has been certified as meeting the labeling standards set by the Japan Aroma Environment Association, a public interest incorporated association.
