A beautifully elegant aroma of canvas, fabric, sack cloth, fragrant waxes, meadow flowers, cut grasses, sea greens, salted beach wood, wet rocks and soda water effervescence. Beyond there's new age incense, chalk, limestone, white pepper and pineapple sorbet. Water brings honeysuckle, green wood, mineral salts, bath bombs, new wool, seaweed in miso broth, putty, clay and soft herbal ointments. In the mouth it opens with elegantly tropical notes of mango tea, pineapple salsa and chopped green herbs. There's also candied barley, lemon jam, fruit loops, jasmine, salted butter, lychee, rosewater and granola. With water it's more textured, full of tinned fruit salad syrups, sweet tropical fruits, shortbread, tea tree oil, green tea, yellow chartreuse, long aged champagne and orangeade. Magnifique!
