A collaboration inspired by the Millésime Impérial fragrance

This summer, we have partnered with luxury fragrance experts, The House of CREED , to bring the Mediterranean to Mayfair by creating a dessert and cocktail inspired by CREED’s iconic Millésime Imperial fragrance.

Millésime Imperial evokes the citrus groves and beautiful coastal landscape of sunny Sicily, combining fresh citrus scents such as bergamot and mandarin, with notes of sea salt, packaged in a beautiful gold bottle. Our South Audley Street entrance will embody the fragrance and guests will be greeted by a beautiful Sicilian garden of citrus trees and luscious foliage.

The Sicilian Garden

Taking inspiration from the scent, our pastry team have created an opulent dessert using the finest seasonal ingredients. The ‘Sicilian Garden’ is a refreshing mandarin mousse, with light lemon jelly, placed upon a sweet Italian meringue and sprinkled with crushed biscotti (£12.50). The dessert’s final flourish is a touch of opulent gold leaf delicately placed on top.

The Cocktails

Encapsulating the fragrance in a cocktail, our Bar Manager has created ‘The Millésime’ cocktail (£14), combining the dryness and salinity of Manzanilla sherry with fresh Sipsmith Summer Cup, bergamot-infused Italicus liqueur, mandarin and lemon. Light and refreshing, this summer serve is poured over crushed ice and garnished with a dehydrated lemon dusted with gold and a sprig of rosemary, nodding to the perfume’s more savoury notes. Guests looking for a non-alcoholic alternative are invited to try ‘A Memoir of Cefalu’ (£9), which mixes Seedlip Spice, apple juice, mandarin, thyme, lemon and soda water.

All those who enjoy the dessert or cocktail will receive a sample of the Millésime Imperial fragrance and are invited to book a fragrance consultation at the CREED  Boutique, located at 99 Mount Street, Mayfair.

The collaboration will run until Friday, 31 August.
