Anyone know of a pure tonka bean AS?

Looking to diy AS.

To make a fougere style, it should have the cut hay/vanilla scent from tonka beans. But that's an oil that's hard to find, and expensive. It's heavily regulated in the states, as the oil, coumarin, can be toxic if swallowed.

I think the easiest way would be to find an existing solo note after shave that already has tonka bean in it. And nothing else.

I have the other oils, and could build the recipe from there.

Did you google it? There’s a whole bunch of tonka bean essential oils on Amazon. They don’t seem too terribly expensive either.

don't know of a pure tonka bean juice.
tom ford tv has some tonka.
otherwise, you'll have to experiment in your home lab!
happy exploring!
