Floral notes of Turkish delight and chamomile arrived bound in balsa wood and light honey whilst an intriguing herbal depth blended tarragon and cloves with pink peppercorns. Flavours of fresh ginger and spicy eucalyptus oil bonded to cloves and camphor to give a tongue-freshening tingle that faded to peppermint tea and sore throat sweets. Water released the fresh vapour of pear drops and menthol into the air like being in a freshly varnished sauna. Then lavender joined fresh basil leaves as things sweetened on the palate to encapsulate marmalade on rye bread with oily walnuts balanced by a finish of dry wood.
