What’s red? A cherry. But Antoine Maisondieu didn’t want to resort to the usual tricks of the trade, so he conjured it from a quality of Tolu balsam with a cherry facet, added safraleine for shine ? and a leather effect that keeps the sweetness in check –, a drop of red mandarin for sweet juiciness as well as osmanthus and myrrh for their fruity effects. The heart burns like a cinnamon candy, freshened with geranium.
This cheery cherry is a totally new interpretation of the note, without a drop of added sugar: it takes the?tart?? out of the pie, sticks it back in the tree, and is guaranteed to raise the big goofy grin you’d get if you were a kid let loose on an orchard.
