Perfume: The edible scent. 12 June 2015

“Odors have a power of persuasion stronger than that of words, appearances, emotions, or will. The persuasive power of an odor cannot be fended off, it enters into us like breath in our lungs, it fills us up, imbues us totally. There is no remedy for it” – Patrick Suskind, PERFUME.

From the apothecary to the chef, the secret life of scent settles on the the dining table for an exquisite dinner inspired by perfume, both ancient and contemporary

After months of research and experimenting, we’ve put together a menu like never before. Inspired by Mandy Aftel’s book, Fragrant: The Secret Life of Scent, we’ve incorporated the fleeting and surreal world of perfume into a fabulous dinner, using organic and pure natural essential oils, absolutes and essences. Ever wondered what frankincense, cedar wood, vetiver or sandalwood might taste like since they smell so divine? Come along and find out.

There’s stories to be told, secrets to be learnt and debates to be had – just like everyone finds their perfect scent, will you find your perfect edible perfume at our dinner?
