Entering the airy and bright space of “Frau Tonis” is like entering an oasis of calm. Nothing will distract you from using your olfactoric sense to discover scents kept in numerous large apothecary bottles. You’re welcome to try different fragrances such as linden tree, figs, orange, and intensive mixes such as “Habanero”, an aroma of tobacco and leather. They are all produced in Berlin (with the exception of few from France) and come as eau de parfum, ready to be worn as is or combined with other scents to create your original, exactly how you like it. In case the vast selection is too overwhelming, the shop’s staff will help you to find the nuance you’re looking for. Your perfume will be ready to be taken home right away and can easily be re-ordered online. Suddenly those premixed scents start to seem so ready-to-wear to me, why not choose haute couture scents?
