With a hue verging on that of a 1970 Bond Bug. First sniff is intoxicatingly fruity with a sappy verdant copse in the background. The more you wander amongst the young trees here are glimpses of lemon, lime, putty and toothpaste; however it’s the impression of spiciness of the young wood that lingers.On the palate the woodland is still very apparent, now however the spiciness has fresher sweeter tones of caramel, orange crème brûlée and barley sugar. The sweetness is really nicely balanced by delicate Asian edges of cardamom and turmeric. The finale is warm soft long and lingering.
