Appearance : burnished gold with glints of copper.
Nose : warm, smooth. On the initial nose, coconut, dried apricot and candied orange accompany vanilla/bourbon and heady florals (hyacinth, rose). Allowed to breathe, the nose becomes honeyed (heather), spicy (cinnamon) and milky (cane juice, almond). The very compact aromatic palette gives a pleasant sensation of fullness. Notes of honeysuckle, mango and artichoke heart suddenly arrive.
Palate : well-balanced, silky. Following in the nose's footsteps, the palate is fruity (orange), vanilla, creamy and spicy (ginger). Gradually, heady tuberose flavours flood the palate, remaining for a long time. The exotic (persimmon, guava) end of the palate is also slightly earthy and medicinal (camphor). The appearance of assorted jams (apricot, quince, apple) gradually makes for a very unctuous palette of flavours.
