Deep gold, a gentle tisane of old pressed flowers, honeysuckle toffee in branch water and a glint of steely mineral. Meyer lemon, pistachio, salted dough, apple pip, yellow petals. Restrained and elegant, it's sup[er dry, with a great chalky grip, and has soft and round suppleness giving relief in mid-mouth. Overall, it feels delicate with great character. The vertical wall of fresh chalk depth persists from entry all the way through to after perfume - wine like the proverbial ghost that walked through a wall.
