However, some events are so well executed by all concerned that they tell the story for you. I have a few of these coming up!
One of those events was the launch of Penhaligon's Juniper Sling.
Held on the 3rd floor of a car park in Central London in a prohibition style pop-up restaurant- genius - the team really went to town showcasing the fragrance within a 1920's surroundings coupled with a gin-inspired theme menu (something that sent Evadne over the edge).
The staff - both waiting staff and employees of Penhaligon's - were all resplendently dressed in the style of the era and were sporting an array of feathers, pearls and tassels. Clearly I was not.
|That empty tray was probably our fault.|
|Quite literally a bath full of gin.|
|Need a spritz of something? You're obviously in the right place.|
|This salad was spritzed with gin after the plate was positioned in front of you. Amazing!|
|A lot of gin-infused cocktails were on offer. It would have been rude to say no.|
All in all a beautiful, fun and interesting launch.
And for the perfume itself? To save me saying: 'It smells lovely.' - here's the brief:
Juniper Sling is a crisp cocktail shot of gin with the freshness of juniper, cool measures of angelica and brandy and a beating libertine heart of black pepper, cardamom, soft leather and orris. A gourmand base of brown sugar, black cherry and amber add sensuality to the scent.
Head Notes: Cinnamon, Orange Brandy, Angelica, Juniper Berry
Heart Notes: Cardamom, Leather, Black Pepper, Orris Wood
Base Notes: Brown Sugar, Black Cherry, Vetiver, Ambrox
