Tommi Sooni: R.I.P.


Post by Portia


Hey APJ Crew,

Recently I grabbed out my bottle of Eau de Tommi Sooni I and was happily spritzing when I thought it was time to revisit the house for the blog. They’re an Aussie crew making lovely vintage inspired fragrances for the modern perfumista and I had been a bit quiet about them, so I went looking and they seem to have disappeared. Gone!

Tommi Sooni: R.I.P.

The only person I ever had contact with from Tommi Sooni was Steven Broadhurst, he was a very pleasant man in my few dealings with him and I really got the feeling that he was 100% devoted to creating a polished, modern, high end independent Australian niche perfumery. The best way I could think of to remember them and their beautiful fragrances was to get all the Tommi Sooni artworks that I could find together and make a post about them, in their own ways as interesting and glorious as the frags.

FragranceX still has Eau de Tommi Sooni I and Jinx for sale AUD$248/100ml

R.I.P. Tommi Sooni, you were too lovely for this world and the air will be a little less fabulously fragrant without you to augment its beauty.

    Hi Portia!

    The pics look amazing, what a pity. Their fragrances must have smelled interesting as well from the look of their pictures,

      The fragrances are so beautiful Esperanza. I only own bottles of numbers 1 & 2 but tried most. Passarelle & Jinx were on my To Buy List but…..

    Hi gorgeous.
    Hope you are well.
    Such a terrible news.
    They were one of the perfume houses I was keen to find out more….
    Guess it’s not easy to survive when there are more and more perfume launches every year.
    Glad you have some of them.

    I bought the sample pack and loved all their fragrances. I keep feeling that if I’d actually bought FBs of them all, it would have saved the day, as if they were just five bottle sales away from ruin.

    I’m very upset by the news. Of course, my Eau de Tommi Sooni II bottle is still 80% full, but I’m sad that I won’t be able to replenish it in future.

      I love that we both have EdTS II Undina. It’s lovely, and I bet you swan around beautifully in it.

    I met Steven Broadhurst a few times, and he always struck me as a nice, genuine guy with an interesting vision for an Australian perfume house that showcased the smells of Australia. I recall one day when he walked a few of us around the Burnley gardens enthusing about his favourite botanical fragrances (he’s a horticulturist by training).

    I liked Staven’s choice of name for his company; he named it after his sister’s imaginary friend.

    I bought EdTS I and II. You could definitely smell the quality in these fragrances but, sadly, they were not for me and I sold them on. Starting to regret that now.

    I had heard of TS folding some time back; sorry to see the news confirmed.

      I wish that I’d known sooner so I could have done something. What a wretched way for such a lovely company and vision to go.
