    All the sources I find are Greek, so i could be limited to Greece, at least for now.

    Send them over or post them here and I'll see if I can translate them or find out at least where they're being released

    Hi Rum! This is the one I used, it's in Greek and English:
    http://www.loveatfirstsiteblog.com/2...res-tonka.html

    Here are two only in Greek:

    Here's a brief summary of what both sites are getting at:

    The focus on both these new fragrances appears to be Tonka Bean (they are somehow referring to them as "Love Beans" - anyone heard that phrase before?). Apparently, the Tonka bean brings luck in love and make dreams come true. In ancient times, they were used as main ingredients in rituals for love, wishes, love, luck, wealth and bravery. Seven beans would be thrown into a river as part of the ritual or one could easily 'wish' over the bean held in a hand. Diluted in a herbal drink, they can cure the soul and overcome depression and confusion to rid the mind of all negative thoughts.

    The first site describes the scents as a unique sweet/sour scent, with a special mix of vanilla and tobacco. In the feminine, the oriental Tonka Purple/Dreams Come True, vanilla, orange blossom, peach, jasmine, bergamot and mandarin are blended with the Tonka Bean. It then goes on to talk about the marketing hype mentioned in the previous (it's almost an exact copy).

    The second site mentions they are limited editions and will be available "in pharmacies from November 2012".

    Thanks Rum! Do you get the sense that they are meant for only the Greek marked?

    I contacted Korres direct, after reading about these two fragrances here on BN, and was informed that Tonka Purple and Tonka Brown are both only going to be available in Greece.

    They've said that they will be in touch if that decision changes......

    Yes, in a way I see what you're saying. But I wonder how many people in Greece can actually spare the extra buck for this sort of marketing blurb.

    I would have thought if you are stopping over at Athens airport you'd be able to get them there. Korres have several stores/sub-stores dotted around the airport.
