Worlds of fragrances and spirits are related – talk about aromas, textures, colours… There is one special place which combines both universes, the space where you can just hold your breath and just let your imagination fly.
It is luxurious, Ritz Carlton’s Fragrances in Berlin- the first bar in the world for all the senses: cocktails, perfumes and aromas. The bar opened in Summer 2014 under the guidance of one of the world’s most creative bartenders, Arnd Heissen and it presents carefully selected range of the Artistic Perfumery scents like Frederic Malle, Byredo, Artisan Perfumeur, Serge Lutens, Creed, and Amouage which inspired Arnd to create unique fragrance cocktails’ combinations.
Ritz Carlon Fragrances – the Gallery
The newest brand to join the Fragrances Bar’s selection is Pantheon Roma, Italian collection by father and son: Paolo and Leone Fadelli, which we have also reviewed on Persefume. It is exclusive line of five Extraits de Parfum paying hommge to story of Italian Renaissance and love affair between Raffello Sanzio and Margherita Luti.

Bar Manager Arnd Heissen chose Pantheon Roma’s Donna Margherita – combination of deep tuberoses, lilies of the valley, jasmine and white flowers to invent new unique fragrance cocktail named “Mexican Masquerade Margherita”.

The drink comprises of exclusive spirits, such as the Grand Marnier Quintessence and Don Julio 1942 Tequila (both limited editions) which have been combined with handcrafted orange and jasmine extracts, also produced in an edition limited to 100 75cl bottles. This combination makes it the most expensive creation of the entire Fragrance Bar’s selection.

The way the cocktail is presented is also unique. It is brought to the table in a blown glass goblet with a sprinkling of golden leaves floating on the surface of this precious drink. All this is accompanied by a gold leaf mask created by an Italian master restorer and lightly perfumed with the Donna Margherita fragrance. Thus, the senses of taste, sight and smell merge to create a new sense that inspires the mind to travel. Leone Fadelli for Persefume.
Pantheon Roma corner
Luxurious character of the project is emphasized by the corner dedicated to Pantheon Roma decorated with artistic featuressuch as the installation of the life-size statue “GODDESS” (2006) by well-known Chinese artist Wu Shaoxiang, created using gold, bronze and Austrian coins.

There is special surprise for the first 100 customers to order this cocktail, but you have to find it yourself in Ritz Carlton Berlin! And for the others, Pantheon Roma is preparing its sixth fragrance which we will cover soon at Persefume.
