A posh London hotel bar has created a collection of cocktails inspired by Givenchy perfumes.
Hotel Cafe Royal has teamed up with Parfums Givenchy to create an edible, drinkable form of L’Atelier de Givenchy, a collection of seven haute couture-inspired perfumes, reports The Spirits Business.
To recreate the notes of white pepper, white musk and leather in Cuir Blanc, hotel bar mixologist Tiziano Tasso uses Siberian pine needle extract in a Martini-style cocktail to lend the beverage a woody taste.
Oud Flamboyant, pitched as ‘strong and mysterious’ with scents of leather, oud and labdanum, is recreated in drinkable form with Japanese whisky and mandarin juice for a bold, magnetic, smoky wood flavor, reports Spirits Business.
Drinks are priced at £13 ($20).
The special cocktail collection will launch February 1 until March 31 at the hotel’s Green Bar.
Hotel Cafe Royal is not the first to pair cocktails with perfumes.
The Ritz-Carlton hotel in Berlin staked that claim last year when it launched an interactive cocktail and perfume experience.

Three of music’s biggest names have teamed up for a new collaborative track: “FourFiveSeconds” is the new single from Rihanna featuring Kanye West and Paul McCartney. The acoustic ballad hears Macca strumming along on guitar as Yeezy and Rihanna reflect on life’s ups and downs. “Woke up an optimist, sun was shining I’m positive/ Then I heard you was talkin’ trash/ Hold me back I’m bout’ to spaz,” Kanye croons. Listen at Rihanna’s website. It’s also available for purchase on iTunes.
Presumably “FourFiveSeconds” serves as the first track from Rihanna’s as-yet-unannounced eighth studio album. It also marks the second collaboration between West and McCartney. The two previously teamed up for “Only One”.
