Dorchester Collection’s Roman property, Hotel Eden, has announced a unique collaboration with niche fragrance company, Campomarzio70, to create a new immersive cocktail experience, the Fragrance Bar.
Available until Monday, December 31, 2018, one of the bookcases within the hotel’s lobby lounge bar, La Libreria, will be transformed to showcase three glass cloches, changing seasonally to unveil a total of nine by the end of the year. Each glass dome will hold a sculpture and ornate floral decorations, depicting the ingredients of three different perfumes selected by Campomarzio70.
Exclusively for the partnership, Hotel Eden’s bar manager, Gabriele Rizzi, has created a range of light, floral, spicy and aromatic cocktails, inspired by each of the fragrances. Those visiting La Libreria will be encouraged to choose their favourite scent from each glass case, besides which a bottle of perfume will display the name of its partnered cocktail. At the end of the experience, guests will receive a small sample of their chosen perfume and the name will remain a secret, only to be revealed upon entering one of Campomarzio70’s boutiques in Rome and throughout Italy.
Changing seasonally for spring, summer and autumn, the olfactory experience has launched with three cocktails: Il Sole In Una Stanza, a base of gin, dry sherry and Limoncello; Primavera ad Amalfi, a concoction of vodka, Solerno, Aperol and cinnamon extract; and Tropico dell’Eden, a non-alcoholic cocktail of mango and citrus fruits from Hotel Eden.
The Fragrance Bar will be available daily and the cocktails are priced at €23. To make a reservation, please call +39 064 781 2765 or email libreria.HER@dorchestercollection.com.
