Angela Ciampagna certainly has a knack for coming up with inventive openings.
Kanat’s grippingly gourmand introduction pits the medicinal leather tones of saffron against a sweet, and slightly powdery almond and cherry complex. The latter is principally constructed around benzaldehyde whose relatively high volatility is here problematic: once it’s gone, so is Kanat’s character, and what remains is the vaguest of musky floral accords with very low impact.
