`And what does it live on?’

`Frumenty and mince pie,’ the Gnat replied; `and it makes its nest in a Christmas box.’

  • ITI:  It’s rather foody, like caramel popcorn (suet perhaps), berries, and buttered bread with sweet cooking spices.   It’s warm and inviting, actually.
  • Wet: Artificial berry jam, plum, suet, and just  little baking bread.
  • Dry: I still get the berry jam scent (which still might be the brandy-soaked raisin), along with a grainy mid tone.  It’s interesting, but it makes me hungry.
Other Impressions: None.
