The “world’s first” perfume and cocktail bar, Fragrances, has unveiled a brand new menu inspired by perfumes from high end fashion houses including Giorgio Armani and Issey Miyake.
The interactive Hall of Fame where guests can select their drink based on the aroma
Fragrances opened at The Ritz-Carlton in Berlin in June 2014 as the “first” bar to serve cocktail creations inspired by exclusive perfumes.
Now the venue has launched a brand new menu comprising 30 contemporary cocktails inspired by perfumes from the likes of Jo Malone and Bulgari.
Upon entry, guests find themselves in an “Hall of Fame” where all 30 drinks are arranged as small interactive works of art.
From here, guests rely on all their senses to select their cocktail of choice rather than simply selecting from a menu.
The new menu features “rare” spirits, including Brazilian Leblon Cachaҫa, Japanese Tantakatan Shochu and Amabuki sake – discovered by bar manager and creator of the menu, Arnd Heißen, on his travels – as well as oil and plant-based shrubs and syrups, and various other floral, wood and spice sources.
Each is served in an unusual vessel – for example, an oversized strawberry with cotton candy – which guests are invited to make themselves if they choose to.
Heißen said: “It is especially important to us that our guests’ visit at Fragrances is fun.
“Here, they can experience the world of cocktails and fragrances with all their senses, exchange ideas and take new experiences and memories home with them.”
