3.75/5 I dunno, just tasted real “standard” or middle of the road for me. Was expecting more of an experience. Def got the bubble gum tho.

This smells like what Madrecuixe would smell like in a smell’s dictionary. It’s got the bubblegum quality I find in most of Don Valente’s. I also get notes of cinnamon and lavender. The lingering finish is fresh rainwater. I can’t believe how many bottles were made of this, hopefully, it’s around for a long time.

Batch AE-XXSAV. Elegant. Beautiful. Lovely. Aromas of bubblegum, lavender, fresh flowers on the breeze, and a bit of moth balls. The palate is velvety with more bubblegum, vanilla, tobacco, and a touch of spearmint. This is seriously reminiscent of one of my all time favorite Madrecuishe, Mezcalero No. 16, also from Don Valente. This is just so soft and delicate.
