On 1 February 2015, Hotel Café Royal will launch an exclusive Atelier Collection of Cocktails in collaboration with Parfums Givenchy, celebrating L’Atelier de Givenchy fine fragrances. Available in the Green Bar, the cocktail collection will be served from 1 February to 31 March – a fabulous reason to visit this iconic hotel. Located on one of London’s finest shopping streets, Café Royal has been at the heart of chic London living since its original opening in 1865, welcoming a variety of guests from royalty and celebrities to rock stars, models and muses.
Developed by Tiziano Tasso, mixologist at Café Royal’s The Club, the seven cocktails have been designed to mirror the seven fragrances of L’Atelier de Givenchy fragrance collection. Marrying the world of fragrance and flavour, each of the cocktails has a distinct colour and unique personality and taste, reflecting the key perfume notes – unique, universal and distinguished, or so we’re told.
The House of Givenchy has been conjured up by by the seven fragrances of the Atelier de Givenchy collection, combining couture and fragrance, and now there’s a cocktail collection to match.
Each fragrance has been created using the richest raw materials (including rare flowers, precious woods, fruits and woody leathers) and Hotel Café Royal’s mixologists have mirrored this attention to detail in the finished cocktail collection, which includes:
CHYPRE CARESSE – a delicate and timeless fresh chypre
Developed with the elegant aromas of gin, jasmine, lemon citrus and the subtle, yet rich, notes of honey.
YLANG AUSTRAL – an ethno-chic and graphic woody floral
Featuring an unusual combination of flavours including Rum, sour apple sherbet, orange Curacao and mandarin oils, to add balance and depth.
NÉROLI ORIGINEL – an oriental green for the elegance of an icon
