The ‘Fragrances’ bar at the Ritz-Carlton, Berlin
The Ritz-Carlton, Berlin is offering a new drinks experience based on fragrances and memories.
The Ritz-Carlton, Berlin is offering a new drinks experience based on fragrances and memories, “the first bar dedicated to the art of cocktails in combination with the world of perfume and aromas.”
Fragrances from Giorgio Armani, L’Artisan Parfumeur and Annick Goutal, Yves Saint Laurent and Guerlain were used as a jumping-off point for the hotel’s bar manager Arnd Heissen, who created the concept.
Fifteen of the cocktails are arranged as an exhibit with their ingredients and spirits on display. And the presentation of the drinks is equally creative, incorporating a range of appropriated objects including bird houses, a wooden shrine and a meter-long bamboo stick.
There are also matching snacks so the ‘Macaron Énorme’ with vanilla and raspberries is paired with the ‘Signorina’, a cocktail inspired by the fragrance of the same name by Salvatore Ferragamo.
Along with perfume house Frau Tonis Parfum the hotel is also offering a Luxury Perfume Weekend with a fragrance workshop, champagne, canapés and exotic fruits in the perfumery at Checkpoint Charlie, and more of Heissen’s cocktails in the evening. A heady mix, we’re sure!
