The nose is greeted by a massive estery whoosh! Banana, very ripe pineapple and rum butter. Yum. Cocoa. Mango. More yum. Bounty bars. With time it moves towards a floral style.
Orangey, but not as much fruit as the nose, but lots of smoky-oaky cocoa character. Perfumed.
Mixed spice in sugar. Overall: good, and nearly great.
