100 Queen’s Gate Hotel - London will introduce an immersive scent-led Scentsation afternoon tea in partnership with British perfumery brand, Floris London.

The offering will celebrate the relationship between taste and scent with a menu influenced by two signature scents Cherry Blossom Eau de Parfum and Limes Eau de Toilette.

The hotel’s culinary team has explored the different notes in each of the fragrances to develop the menu.

The menu will include delicate treats such as craquelin choux with cinnamon and orange blossom-infused white chocolate mousse.

The treats can be customised for guests' personal tastes in scent and taste. Pots of sweet and savoury flavourings, such as lavender and honey, will be on offer to elevate the floral and citrus notes of the Floris fragrance-inspired menu.

The afternoon tea will be served in the hotel’s tearoom, Botanica. Inspired by the selected Floris fragrances, Botanica will be dressed in cherry blossom and limes. Here, guests will have a three-layered stand of  patisseries paired with Whittard teas. They will be offered a tea based on their preference in either the Limes or Cherry Blossom Floris scent, following a consultation that will help them to select their favourite.
