It opens on starchy linen. Then sherbet, lavender, sunflower seeds and toasted trail mix. An organoleptic fabric of bath salts, elegant natural sweetness and cornflour. A little water brings out a chalkier, earthier side. Notes of pine sap, elderflower, juicy fruit, kiwi and lemon foam. The mouth is immediately rich and fruity; lots of pineapple cubes, jelly beans, strawberry laces, custard slices and creamy cherry liqueur. Water teases out a medicinal streak. Hints of gauze, crushed oatmeal, sweet flapjack, honeyed porridge and chalky mints.
