Nose : Complex, full-bodied. At first, exotic fruits (passionfruit, mango), beeswax, aromatic plants (fennel, sage), cardamom and red fruits (strawberry, raspberry) are the main players in an engaging and full-bodied olfactory sequence. Superb. Upon aeration, strong spices (pepper, cloves) and Tiger Balm come to the forefront. Absolutely divine honeysuckle scents transport us poetically into a world where time has stopped.
Palate : Elegant, lively. A true fruit basket with mango, lemon, passionfruit, orange, nuts, raspberry, blackberry, peach, pear, etc. – the palate attack is of great beauty. Upon aeration, orange blossom, heather honey, cinnamon and a few cloves provide a lot of rhythm to the tasting. Flavors of pipe tobacco and pine resin add a touch of severeness of great class.
Finish : Long, radiant. Crunchy, juicy and finely chocolatey, the start of the finish retains the exotic, lush and noble character of the nose and palate for a long time. It extends to notes of vanilla-bourbon, iris concrete and vervain. Very pure, the retro-olfaction is both fruity (strawberry, currant), gourmet (gingerbread) and fond (honey candy). The empty glass leaves behind notes of candied fruit (prune, apple), encaustic (wax, wood paste) and ripe apricot.
