A heavenly hue of perfumed delight pictured rose petals falling through fragrant sandalwood incense and landing onto the thick wax of a polished church organ beside a pair of beeswax candles. The gentle spice of hot cross buns and textures of melted butter coated the mouth as a sweet caress of Brazil nuts, walnut oil and jasmine flowers pleased the senses. The soft and syrupy fruitiness of papaya, banana and sweet lemons joined subtle notes of matcha green tea and orange cocktail bitters while heather honey trickled over muesli. With water came a complex array of fresh herbs and waxed fruit with spicy carnations and rosewater. Finally, a standing ovation of pine nuts, mango and banana skin fused with avocado and mead on the extensive finish.
