forget me nots

Centzon Totochtin [bpal]

Initially: Chocolate and alcohol. Like Chocolate rum maybe? and something a little dusty. Softens to something... kind of sweet but not overly. Mary said it reminds her of a country store. I think still a little dusty. Something sort of fruity but ot sharp fruit. Light and mellow. The chocolate smell might still be there but it blends well enough that it doesn't stand out.

Another that ended up smelling like some sort of cleaning fluid. So sad. Sell pile.

BPAL says: The Four Hundred divine rabbits of the Aztec pantheon that preside over parties and drunkenness. Bittersweet Mexican cocoa with rum, red wine, and a scent redolent of sacrificial blood.
