Heather and lavender buttonholes on crisply starched shirts mingled with blackcurrant sweets and parma violets candies. Aromas of vinyl, plastic sleeves, new carpet tiles, fake leather jackets, hairspray and cider reminded one Panelist of record hunting. Another found distinctive pit lanes at Le Mons: motor oil, rubber, fumes, overalls and leather car seats.  Collectively they discovered truffle honey on toasted pine nuts, melted toy soldiers and smoked ham studded with wild garlic. Water released tobacco, damp tweed, scorched heather and dried lavender. A burnt twig used as a dipstick, and new wellington boots. Red vinyl records stored in a mahogany chest of drawers.
