Zoë Ladyman
Akarua Ltd


Heady multi-layered perfume of bush roses, cardamom and vanilla with raspberries, mulberries and deep notes of leather and cigars. The palate is dense and concentrated, yet with a fine, silken line of minerals and structural acidity carrying the complex flavours. Delicious and satisfying with an interplay of sweet and savoury character.
