Hard to believe it needs the simple!

Mine wasn't candylike: reduced st germain to .5, omitted syrup, probably would do better with even less st germain as it overpowers the creme yvette even at the reduced amount, sprig of rosemary which I didn't think would work but lent a nice spicy herbal touch to tame the sweetness a little.
