About Toukka Ta Tao

Imagined by Timmy Vangtan of Imagine Scent, Toukka Ta Tao transports you to a tropical island half a world away with enticing aromas of exotic fruits, narcotic flowers and sandy beaches.  Timmy's dream fragrance was inspired by Ko Tao, (Turtle Island) in Thailand famous for its surrounding coral reef.  A "tropical getaway" ambiance comes from a blend of 129 fruits, flowers, spices, tinctures and Christi's special "beach musk" accented by notes of lilikoi, plai, kava and sesame.  The dream of Timmy's fragrance is shared by many around the world - it is the scent of "swimming with the turtles".

Reviews of Toukka Ta Tao

There is one review of Toukka Ta Tao.
This opens with a brief whiff of cedar, before the "house signature" patchouli-creosote accord takes over. This is underpinned by something green & vegetal, perhaps the listed kava kava, a root whose name apparently means "bitter". This lasts around thirty minutes before morphing into a beachy floral with tropical fruits & coconut milk. The listed fruit notes are lychee, mango & lilikoi (another name for yellow passion fruit), but two hours in as the woods recede & the ylang-ylang becomes more prominent, what I get here is a banana daquiri. Five hours in, the base is an more ambery, oriental, sandalwood accord, with maybe a hint of oud. Projection is on the low side, & it all fades out after around nine hours.
I've rarely experienced a perfume that changes so dramatically between the opening phase & the drydown. It's like two completely different fragrances; one dark, woody & green, the other sweet, fruity & tropical. It's strange & perplexing, & I'm not sure if I enjoy either phase, but it's certainly an interesting ride.
