Light, lighter, & lighter still. Good perfume, tricky primary flavors whose secret personalities finally reveal themselves thru lingering persistency laying on a subtle mélange perhaps unique to each tastebud.

Flavor   46 / 50
ganaches & fruits have divine intervention qualities, especially interpretations of raspberry, banana, & lime zest, each meld into dreamy, earthly delights – extemporaneously harmonized, leaving memories of flavor; alcohols hits notes a bit too hot & diversionary
Quality   27.1 / 30
A lot of game. Exhibits a similar hand to Jacques Torres – so much roundness becomes less about chocolate, more about the creation within – though exceedingly refined compared to him: never flirting with mere confection.
