Friends Edoardo Mantelli, Marianne Oudejan, and Gordon Finkelstein founded Tocca in the winter of 1994 and have created a business empire that offers a diverse range of products that appeal to different people. The three founders named the company after the Italian word for touch, as they were enamored with the intricacies of fabric and embroidery. The company combined romantic and exotic elements to distinguish its products.
Tocca began expanding more into the perfumery business in 2006 with the release of Stella, although the company debuted with Tocca Eau de Touch in 1998. Tocca has several sought-after fragrances, including Stella, Cleopatra, and Florence. Their scents are all bottled in whimsical glass bottles that highlight their fabulous smells.
Tocca has enlisted the talents of Sonia Constant, James Bell, and Ellen Mollner to craft their vibrant and playful scents. Known for its use of top-notch ingredients to come up with floral and fruity combinations, Tocca prides itself in providing clients with fragrances that capture joie de vivre while highlighting sophistication and elegance.
One of Tocca’s newer releases, Belle EDP, is touted as a floral fragrance designed for women. They packaged the scent in a round glass bottle, allowing the pink-tinged liquid to shine through and emphasizing its femininity and delicateness.
Zesty Italian bergamot and petitgrain open the scent and instantly turn heads because of their freshness. The scent then moves on to the strong undertone of radiant freesia, which continues to captivate the audience. Finally, the warm and comforting musk base note embraces the wearer during the drydown.
Perfect for spring as the fresh and feminine scent will attract compliments and attention.
Tocca released Biance EDP in 2008, and they billed the scent as a fresh and citrusy aromatic fragrance. Inspired by the Roman tea time, Bianca is a perfectly blended composition that is alluring and seductive.
