Perfume with attitude pogoed out of the glass and met us with a face full of fresh and dusty sawdust. Captivated by its enthusiasm we became immersed in praline and coconut. Chocolate in a leather jacket demonstrated soft fruits with an anti-authoritarian stance that provided peach, apricot and mandarin. Chunks of pineapple joined dry straw to complete the metal studded nose and brought us neatly along to the palate. Walnut cake coated with soft vanilla icing offered an immediate exuberance as banana skin, crystalised ginger and nut husks became interknitted by an elaborate weave of safety pins. A buttery texture persisted throughout and continued onto a wonderfully oaky finish that hinted towards elements of sweet vermouth.
