- Unexpected I like it coz it has soap taste and floral
- Well, I like this one
much better than the perfumy bottling from MoM, although it flirts with
disaster. It is clearly the best undiluted.
It is quite Toshany
from the very start, meaning that citrus and vanilla kick in, followed by sweet
malt, sugared pineapple and hints of green banana. White chocolate? It does
show a floral side, with some jasmin and dandelion, but it is a far cry from
the perfumed FWP. Thank the Maker! After a while, I get some caramel and
mandarin. This is a very classic, but wonderful, Auchentoshan nose. Feel free
to add some water. It can take it and makes it more fruity.
Nice body with loads
of spices. Ginger, white pepper, the classics. The floral side is much more prominent
on the palate, though. But all within the borders of the acceptable. Violets
and rosewater. Some mild honey and then the citrus kicks in with a vengeance.
Adding water brings it to the brink of perfume, so add with care.
The finish is nice
and long on citric acid.
