luxurious definitely….. strong orange presence that doesn’t overwhelm and carries no bitterness. the chocolate aspect is neither a milk nor a dark…. a very nice cross.
i find myself in an awkward position— i like this but….
i have yet to find a company whose expertise trumps nina’s paris with fruit, berries specifically, red berries more specifically.
i will assume this comes down to personal preference only…. and given the respect i have for this apothecary i do not like to withold numbers based on that.
technically: a very smooth base, a very balanced blend. the orange and chocolate sit at 60/40, respectively in terms of presence…. the cream i don’t detect, but i’m not sure it’s supposed to be a taste so much as a texture. as a texture it is definitely there. i do feel this blend accomplishes what it sets out to do…. it’s just not my favourite nina’s blend is all.
the number you see is what i rank the accomplishment at.
