Nose
Oily, gentle and smooth, with rose petals and milk chocolate-coated Turkish Delight.
Palate
Greener than the nose suggests, but with a carry-over of milk chocolate.
Finish
Quite lengthy, slightly smoky with ginger compote.
Comment
The nose is pure confectionary, while the palate introduces a more masculine note.

Nose
Very intensely perfumed, like a florist's shop full of lilies and roses on a hot day. There is a sweet cream edge here too.
Palate
That perfume note is more musky, almost incense. Dark fruits and some espresso notes. A little oily as well.
Finish
Long and warming.
Comment
Great stuff, keeps your taste buds working hard.
