As the second third begins, the wood gains a slight char while the baking spice mellows a bit more. The cream is just right behind the wood note. At a half inch in, the baking spice is very faint while the charred wood definitely has the lead over the cream. At an inch in, the cream picks back up to be just behind the charred wood. The retrohale is a fuller version of the same profile. As the third comes to a close, a slight floral note joins the charred wood and cream. The strength in this third remains at slightly below medium.
