Continuing its partnership with Parfums Givenchy, Hotel Café Royal has launched an exciting addition to its Givenchy cocktail collection to celebrate the new fragrance, Immortelle Tribal, from the L’Atelier de Givenchy collection. Inspired by the rare flowers and woody notes of the perfume, Antonio Catapano, the Green Bar’s talented head mixologist, has created a rich floral cocktail created with aromatic extracts of rose, violet and jasmine which contrasts with cognac, whiskey and a fig liqueur base.
All eight cocktails have been designed to mirror the eight 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 which are unique, universal and distinguished. The quintessence of the Givenchy style has been conveyed by the eight fragrances of the L’Atelier de Givenchy collection, combining couture and fragrance, each reflecting a different look and personality, and now by the new limited-edition cocktail collection.
Each fragrance has been structured by the richest raw materials (including rare flowers, precious woods, dazzling fruits and vibrant leathers) and the names of each reflects the symbiosis of perfume and fashion, pairing an olfactory raw material with a Couture reference. Hotel Café Royal’s mixologists have masterfully mirrored this with an emphasis on detail and finish to create the cocktail collection.
The exclusive collection of eight cocktails, including the exquisite Imortelle Tribal, will be available in the hotel’s vibrant Green Bar until 10th September 2015, priced at £13 per cocktail.
In addition, the Green Bar team have created four alcohol free mocktails to complete the offer, priced at £8 each.
