Perfume

Lemongrass and black cardamom play off one another for flavors that are both fresh and full-bodied.

The words of Olivier Roellinger

I was enthralled by the purity of the soups served in Hanoï, where the health-giving, joy-briging bouillons are enjoyed as street food. They restore energy and serenity, and their simplicity, brightness, clarity, and depth of flavor give them a thoroughly modern feel.
I created Tonkin Powder as a tribute to these soups that vary from bend to bend along the Mekong. It summons the magic of pho soup would to reveal the delicious wonders of our cliffsides and coastlines.
