    Default What scent has these two notes?

    The other day I sniffed a scented candle that was a mix of cardamom and tonka bean and loved it. Are there any scents out there that feature these two notes as their main components? I've seen quite a few scents that have tonka as one of the main players but only slight amounts of cardamom.

    The original Diesel for Men features both prominently.

    Latrelle: "What?"
    Peggy: "Brother Boy has tried to kill himself. He jumped out of his bedroom window."
    Latrelle: "Isn't he only on the second floor?"
    Peggy: "Yes, but he hit his head on a lawn gnome."

    If you go to the Directory and in "Fragrance Notes" (the big box at the bottom) you type cardamom and tonka with only one space in between, it returns 46 fragrances with both these notes.

    LeMale has cardamom? I've never smelled cardamom in LM. Tonka, well yes...but cardamom is buried under the heavy blanket of sweetness
