Shy at first, the nose suggested nettles, rosemary and forest floors – but giving it time paid off as perfumed notes of potpourri, red apple, orange boxes and flor de azahar (orange blossom, supposedly an aphrodisiac) emerged. The palate combined subtle flavours of sugared jelly fruits and cherries in crème anglaise, plus hints of sandalwood and toasted sesame seeds; the finish teased with delicate spice (cinnamon, cardamom) and coconut. The reduced nose grew more tropical – melon, passion fruit and strawberry, florentine tuiles and perfumed tobacco. On the palate, we now found jam tarts, lemon meringue pie, butterscotch, dark chocolate and dried mango.
