Notes

The nose buzzes with a sheen of furniture polish, sunflower oil, toasted seeds, warm cherry pie and rice cakes. Some toasty hot cross buns mix with the heat of mustard powder. Fragrance is added with dried sage and rosehip tea. Water brings a distinct waft of geraniums in a warm greenhouse. Tomato vines, freshly malted barley, orange oils, crispy cereals, hessian and gorse flower. The palate is initially sweet and full of lime jelly, lemon curd, camphor, rapeseed oil, lanolin and a curious mix of soda bread and custard creams. Dilution brings out a superb minty freshness. Eucalyptus resins, airfix glue, chamomile tea and some cherry calpol.
