Berlin: Cocktail bar celebrates the world of fragrance

The hotel has opened a new bar, ’Fragrances’ inspired by the world of haute parfumerie.

The Ritz-Carlton, Berlin is offering a new drinks experience based on fragrances and memories. 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.

At Fragrances, we want our guests not only to enjoy their drinks, but to experience them,” he explained. “In the choice of their favorite cocktails, our guests depend entirely on their senses. An experiment, which demands courage and curiosity on the art of the guests, but which at the same time can be unbelievably inspiring.

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!

Victoria’s Secret or the failure of a conservative positioning?

When the Victoria’s Secret show was cancelled it didn’t come as a surprise. In May, it was reported by The New York Times that the show would no longer be broadcast on network television. “We must evolve and change to grow. With that in mind, we have decided to re-think the traditional Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show". From 2001 to 2018, (...)
