Floral, a bouquet of flowers straight up the nose, jasmine in particular but maybe also a little lilac? A light scent of soap, not in a bad sense, vanilla rock, custard, a fruit basket containing apple, pear and clementine and some subtle licorice notes. The sweetness is clear where icing sugar meets light honey.
Very powerful on the arrival, loads of flavor, vanilla and floral notes from the nose persists. Vanilla with pear develops when rolling it around the tongue and coating the palate. Flowers again, pepper, pineapple popsicle, table salt, baked apples, more pear. Flavors appear in different peaks separated by a few seconds in time, layer by layer, exactly as I define complexity.
The finish is medium in length with black pepper, granulated sugar, juicy golden delicious apples and black bitter tea.
