Deep amber or even polished mahogany in colour with first rate beading, suggesting excellent texture in the mouth. Candied fruit – glacé and reconstituted apricots, sweet peaches, marmalade and orange peel, soaked in Gran Marnier; then ladies old fashioned face powder compact and scented face cream. Sweet on the taste, with dark chocolate fondant, becoming drier in the aftertaste. The addition of a little water turns the fruits more citric, adding a bitter orange note. The mouth texture increases with a bitter-sweet twist and lingering notes of dark chocolate.
