Tocca Margaux ~ new perfume

Tocca Margaux

Tocca will launch Margaux, a new fragrance for women, in October:

Sealed with love and spritz with a scent! A message that had been thrown to the waves, and to fate, could unite a bond of true love.

Inspired by the type of love that could last a lifetime, TOCCA’s newest Eau de Parfum, Margaux, is the collection’s introduction of a rich, warm sophisticated fragrance.

Margaux embraces you with velvety petals of green gardenia and ambery violet. The rich warmth of cashmere wood and warm musk, lightened by the sweetness of vanilla, envelope [sic] you in an intoxicating perfume that conjures the timelessness of that one true love. A feeling and fragrance you can keep for years, look back on with fondness and pass on to generations.

Additional notes include blood orange, bergamot blossom, cassis, black jasmine, benzoin and heliotrope.

Tocca Margaux will be available in 50 ml Eau de Parfum.

    Ever since Victoria reviewed Tocca’s Colette so positively I have regarded Tocca perfumes with interest. Colette is very pretty and wearable and this sounds as if it could be too. Plus they sell 15ml bottles in Anthropologie! (though maybe not of this new one yet)

    • Marjorie Rose says:

      I like Colette, too! I didn’t realize I could get a 15mL bottle–might want to get one of those. It’s not a complicated scent, but it’s lovely and easy to wear.

      As for Margaux, it’s almost my name. . .might have to try it just to see if “my” scent is any good. :)

      • Jillie says:

        Oh wouldn’t it be lovely to have a perfume named after you? And – even better – one created just for you, with all your favourite notes?!

        I’m not so sure about this, though, as I am beginning to get a little tired of “cashmere wood” which seems to appear in everything now.

        Just thought – there are thousands of perfumes with your second name!!!!

        • Marjorie Rose says:

          If perfume were as popular as other products, I can imagine a carousel with individualized perfumes with popular children’s names, like souvenir mugs! Sadly for my childself, my name was never popular enough for such products. . .

          But yes, Rose on the other hand, is quite popular!

          And you’re right–“cashmere wood” is becoming quite ubiquitous!

            Thar reminds me of an old episode of The Simpsons (what doesn’t?), before they jumped the shark

          • kindcrow says:

            Meant to say …
            That reminds me of an old episode of The Simpsons (what doesn’t?), before they jumped the shark. The family was in the gift shop at Itchy and Scratchy Land, and they couldn’t find a Bart novelty license plate. Then, over the P.A. system, the announcer says something like “Attention employees! Attention employees! We are out of Bort license plates! I repeat, we are out of Bort license plates!”

            My name is so unique/uncommon that I never see it on stuff. But, if you take off a couple of letters, it becomes a very common name for which there are tons of souvenirs.

          • Marjorie Rose says:

            Bort, ha! It can sure feel that way–like they have all the spellings of Madelyn possible, but not one version of an out of fashion name like mine! Margarets are easier to come by, though. . .

      • Robin says:

        I have not yet found a Tocca I love, but you never know! Worth a shot.

    • kindcrow says:

      I like Colette, too. I will give this one a sniff.

  2. Emily says:

    The [sic] made my day. Envelop vs. envelope is rapidly ascending my list of pet peeves.

    All the Toccas I’ve tried have seemed like they’re decently made and perfectly agreeable, but not the stuff of fantasy. Also, generally not my style.

    • Robin says:

      I would say the lack of copy editing online was my pet peeve, except hey, we’re guilty too. Glad nobody else can come here and [sic] up my text, LOL….

  3. Daisy says:

    I have found the Tocca line to be very likable though not exciting or cutting edge. Very good choices at that price point –certainly the sort of line I’d recommend for younger perfumistas who would like to take a step away from mainstream but aren’t ready to tackle Serge Lutens (and other oddities) and don’t have a lot to spend. Of course then I’d probably introduce the concept of decants…..

    Besides, I adore those round fluted bottles!

    • Robin says:

      Ditto. Actually I usually recommend them for non-perfumistas — it’s a very likable line.

  4. bluegardenia says:

    I think they’ve gone ‘likeable’ ever since their debut scent, Touch, didn’t sell well (both times it was released). I personally love it, but it’s not for the faint of heart and always elicits strong reactions. Haven’t liked anything by them since then, but I’d bet they’re making piles of money now.

  5. scentfromabove says:

    A coworker of mine just discovered the love of fragrances and got a bottle of Tocca Stella for Christmas. It smells amazing on her. Needless to say, I never had any interest in this brand and have never experienced any of them. Now, I’m a little curious. Maybe I will take my chances and try this one out (Margaux).

  6. cincobayou says:

    At work I use the name of Margo; so, when I saw the Tocca Margaux, I decided to buy it and use it since it was ‘my name”.
    Before I paid out the $68 for a bottle of it at Sephora, I did read about the notes and knew it was one that I would like….flowers with woods. No fruity stuff!
    This is a lovely scent to wear to work, never overpowering or offensive. Just so pleasant and pretty.
    A few years ago I bought Tocca Cleopatra and it was nice…got the bubble bath too. But I was not thrilled with it…rather blagh to me, but my daughter loved it and took it and was happy with it.
    The only drawback to the Tocca fragrances: they do not last very long!
    Daughter says she thinks it disappears before she can even walk out of the house!
    I wore it to work today and it was pretty much gone after 5 hours.
    As soon as I got home, I sprayed some on again and fell in love once more.
    Margaux by Tocca is a lovely fragrance but it will need reapplying after about 4 hours.
