Notes

The initial nose neat had all the hallmarks of a classic rose perfume, understated but with that sense of sophistication. Further aromas added to that impression; crushed honeysuckle and violet leaves but also hot plum and hoisin sauce and Turkish delight. The taste neat started surprisingly sharp and tannic like concentrated passion fruit syrup but with time toffee and fudge notes appeared as well as Millionaires’ shortbread and blueberry cupcakes. A drop of water and a lush perfumed passion fruit smoothie and chocolate covered cherries made us feel like devouring the forbidden fruit with the sweet juice running down our chins.
