A medley of fresh juicy fruits; apple, pear, vanilla, quince, and lemon peel, accompanied by subtler notes of icing sugar, minerals, and limestone. There is also nuances of apricot, peach, honeydew, spices, a little pepper, cereals, and a hint of oak wood. The overall experience is marked by beeswax, gentle stewed apples, peach, caramel, toffee, woody oak, vanilla, toasted coconut, and a subtle presence of aniseed-like sweets, with a possible hint of cinnamon.
A slightly punchy and oily introduction, featuring a wax and fruity interplay. Vanilla and honey notes intermingle with yellow fruits, including peach, apple, and pear. The sweetness is well-balanced with a peppery and spicy undertone, along with mineral nuances, hints of ginger, and the softest richness of ripe banana. Additional layers include floral elements, drying linen, apples, honey, waxy textures, mineral salt, limestone/chalk, and a slight smokiness. The texture evolves from pleasingly creamy-smooth to a sweetly fruity taste that transitions into a spicy intensity.
The finish is medium-long and warm, featuring lingering notes of vanilla, honey, spices, and fruity undertones. It gradually becomes drier, with herbal and leathery notes, along with hints of fruit jam, dry tobacco, and a gentle, slightly bitter oak.
