Creed’s sensory dinner & cocktails!

Now is the season when restaurants and cocktail menus get sparkled-up, aiming their wares at customers in the festive mood. But we’ve found something extra special for fragrance-lovers looking for something a cut above: Luxury fragrance house Creed is partnering with award-winning Kensington restaurant, Launceston Place to create a scent-inspired cocktail menu and a four-course sensory experience dinner with specially paired wines!

Available from now until 9th December 2018, mixologist Giorgio Tosato worked with Creed to create four limited-edition cocktails inspired by some of the fragrance house’s most desirable scents – Aventus, Aventus For Her, Green Irish Tweed and Royal Princess Oud.

On Monday 3rd December, the restaurant will also be hosting a Creed x Launceston Place Sensory Dinner. Fragrance expert, Eva Carlo and Head Chef, Ben Murphy will guide guests through a sensory experience including a 4 course meal and cocktail inspired by Creed Fragrances. A once-in-a-lifetime event, what an incredible gift this would be for the perfume lover in your life, or a treat for yourself…

You can purchase tickets here – there’s the option of having the specially created four-course dinner (£60.00), or plumping for the extra lavish option of the four-course dinner with wine pairing (£90.00) which we must admit would be our choice!

We’ve long been fans of mixing up the senses, and taste and smell always pair particularly well together – we rely so much on our sense of smell to taste the delicious nuances in food and drinks – so this has to be the perfect pre-Christmas treat for any perfumista/foodie and their fragrant pals. We’re drooling at the very thought of it…

Feed your senses: A second course with the scented chef

Since our first event sold out in a matter of days, we’ve decided to schedule another date with That Hungry Chef, so other subscribers can experience his delicious food. With that, we are delighted to invite you to the second gourmet scented supper on Friday 30th September with That Hungry ChefPratap Chalal.

Inspired by Mandy Aftel‘s book Perfume: An Edible Scent, and his years of training in Michelin starred establishments, Pratap has been hosting supper clubs for over a year now and has been hailed, by Time Out no less, as one of the coolest in town.

Set in his intimate and wonderfully decorated North London home,  you’ll eat with your eyes, mouth and nose – there’s is 16 places for dinner and we have no doubt there’ll be a very eager, full table on the night.
