Teone Reinthal Natural Perfume Mokaya

Mokaya

Mokaya is a sexy gourmand fragrance featuring hand-tinctured organic cocoa and vanilla beans. This growling fragrance opens with an intense chocolate aroma that simmers away to reveal a gorgeous ground of orange blossom, patchouli, ambrette seed musk and tobacco.

 

As well as eau de parfum, Mokaya is now available in pure parfum (fractionated coconut oil). This super-concentrated formula contains a high percentage ratio of essential oils and absolutes, so that Mokaya pure parfum warrants just a little dab.

 

The name, Mokaya, meaning ‘corn-people’, was given to a pre-Olmec culture that existed around 1900 BC in the Soconusco region of Mexico as well as in several parts of Guatemala. Archeologists believe that they were the first Mesoamerican people to cultivate cacao which was carried to Mexico from the Amazon (Wikipedia, 2016).

 

Imagining the ancient world and the birth place of chocolate, this natural gourmand fragrance is a study in dark, earthy scents that evoke the tropical richness of fertile soil, exotic flowers, fruit and wood-smoke. Mokaya’s main notes include: Jasmine Sambac, Cassie Absolute, Orange Blossom, Iris, hand-tinctured Vanilla and Cocoa, Patchouli and Tobacco. This is very much a unisex fragrance, retaining perfect balance between sweetness and raw earthiness.

REVIEWS:

Mokaya reminds me of a scent my mother used to wear when I was a child. She was into French perfumes at the time There was a carved crystal boulle filled with deep orange liquid and clear stopper on her dressing table that I used to dab on when she went out. Oranges, sweet jasmine, and something tobacco-ish and patchouli ….I’ve no idea who made that perfume or what it was called. My mother was Russian and grew up in China and Paris.. she had much of the best that life could offer. When I close my eyes, and inhale Mokaya, I am eating chocolate in a bath of ambrosial twilight where orchards drip sweet fruit and piles of autumn leaves burn at sunset on rich loam. This is an amazing ‘”transportation of a scent” that transcends all initial test trials until the lingering veil conquers with a waft of immortal breezes, carrying one off to other lands and other times. Truly Scentsational!! – R.V.

Not your average tobacco and chocolate fragrance! This is an amazing composition of notes. Smouldering, almost burnt, smokey, sultry, tobacco, balanced and blended beautifully with an earthy, rich, unadulterated, cacao. A rich, deeply earthy, patchouli underlies the fragrance giving this both a depth and darkness that is highly alluring. There is a noticeable dark, green, overture in the first few hours that adds an element that eludes to the subtle, dark, hidden, depths of a subtropical forest. From within the shadows an animalic note lingers, obscure, like being stalked unseen, but aware of, from the depths. Later the beautiful, musky embrace of the ambrette emerges, along with honeyed florals, jasmin and orange blossom blended superbly with a smooth, rich, intoxicating, vanilla. The drydown is infinitely like emerging from the depths of the forest, dappled sunlight, filtering slowly down to a clearing on the forest floor; light, soft, ethereal almost, but still surrounded by temptation and the earthy shadows of the forest. This fragrance takes its time, evolving slowly, provocatively on the skin. Everything is beautifully, seamlessly blended. Moderate sillage, beautiful longevity given the natural composition of the fragrance. This is my first experience with this house, and will likely not be my last. – J.P.

From among the oeuvre of Teone Reinthal’s all natural perfumes, where fairies dance, holy men fraternize and unicorns appear, comes this dominatrix of a fragrance. This is what Slumberhouse’s Ore aspired to be. Instead that turned out to be a tamed chocolate butter cookie. Mokaya blazes the trail with a blast of bitter apothecarial tobacco and unsweetened cocoa. It rushes up your sinuses straight to your mind like a hit of cocaine. And just like that, you’re in the mood to spank or be spanked. The smokiness of tobacco leaves swirls around a musky ambrette, setting the stage for an evening of forbidden play. Brutal. Erotic. Smouldering. Very good. For those who are tired of overly embellished tobacco scents or smelling like a prepubescent chocolate biscuit. This gets down to business. – S.T.

Mokaya opens loud, strong and animalic, with black arabic coffee, pungent Oud and fresh cut woods. It has a green herbal aspect to it, the opening even reminded me of the rainforest but that would soon change. Half an hour in and there is a Tobacco and Hay quality to it. Earthy Patchouli is present the whole wear. I waited patiently for some sweetness to kick in and it did, a delightful Vanilla and chocolatey Cacao soon blended in, dried winter fruits, soft Jasmine and Iris lingered on my skin too. This fragrance is rich and full of flavour, it is perfectly blended and although I wouldn’t consider it just being a Vanilla Oriental, it has a green herbal side to it which makes it so unique. It is totally unisex and would smell so sexy on a man! If I had to describe Mokaya in a few words I would say it is a warm, earthy, delectable fragrance with a dusty old book vibe to it, it is comforting enough to wear when you are feeling cold as it will definitely warm you up and make you feel relaxed and content. Mokaya is absolutely unique and definitely huge love and full bottle worthy for me, if you love Jovoy Psychedelic or Les Nereides Patchouli Antique then you would enjoy Mokaya. Sillage is excellent and longevity is too, which is great for it being a natural perfume. – Amarah
