A sweet amber creation, a highly desirable, liquorous Tonka bean.
An aphrodisiac, “skin-tight“, shimmering tonka…
The word “bodycon” may not sound very flattering, but the concept behind it is. The term bodycon is actually a contraction of the words ‘body’ and ‘conscious’, which means body-conscious. Tonka Bodykon is an aphrodisiac, “skin-tight”, shimmering tonka that follows the body’s curves as closely as possible to highlight them.
Tonka Bodykon is a soft amber composition centred on the tonka bean. Inspired by the chromatic palette of a sunset setting the horizon, this fragrance is a “tonka liqueur” infused with balsam and fruity notes. Intoxicating and fiery, we imagine it shimmering on the body of a deity performing a fire dance, billowing its veils in the evening light.
TONKA BODYKON, the term “bodycon” written with the “k” of tonka.

Created by chemist-turned-perfumer Pierre Guillaume, Parfumerie Generale (a play on his initials) boasts one of the most exciting perfume collections in many, many years. Unusual combinations and an unabashed, pure joy in the creation of fragrances that aren’t overly “intellectual” or too weird to wear (while still offering something utterly unique) are hallmarks of this amazing line.
The bold and inventive Pierre Guillaume style is further enhanced in each Parfumerie Generale creation by technical prowess inspired by his background in fine chemistry: a captive ingredient, or one that is totally new, or a unique production process specific to each fragrance. By exploring new process such as “photo-affinage” (photo-refining or smoothing olfactory peaks by ultraviolet radiation), his creations are imprinted with a ‘vibrant’ or ‘melancolic’ feel.
Full of personality and highly distinctive, every single one of the perfumes in this line bears its own strong character; there’s no fluffy, forgettable ‘filler’ perfumes here. Many of the dark fragrances are set off by something sweet; the lighter fragrances have a dash of wood or tea some other anchoring scent…always unexpected, and flat-out exciting. We know you’ll agree.
