Ok, so we’re here. It’s officially cold, dreary and dark here in Melbourne. And you know what? We kinda like it.
It makes the most perfect backdrop to sit in a little booth somewhere warm, dimly lit and cosy and drink away the coldness, amiright?
So while we’re feeling a little festive after a couple of whiskeys, we thought, let’s make a drink list of the best boozy scents at Lore so you can also smell delicious while sipping away.
The most whiskey vibes we’ve got. Enjoy a dram and a spritz of this masterpiece.
Frapin & Cie 1270
An iconic scent that honours cognac from the best, the oldest and most iconic cognac makers in the world.
A deliciously intoxicating rum scent as you dance to the beat of a party on a Zanzibar beach.
Carner Barcelona Palo Santo
Rum, milk and smoky palo santo fuse to create a deliciously warming cocktail cloud of scent.
Miller et Bertaux Pimiento
A Mexican cocktail where the warmth of a chilli/saffron duo hits the freshness of alcohol and ice cubes.
Beaufort London Coeur de Noir
The heart of darkness – think pirate ship at night, the scent of ink., rum and leather bound books.
Andrea Maack Coven
A night under the magical stars – fresh cut grass intermingled with moist soil and peaty whiskey.
Penhaligon’s Portraits Much Ado About the Duke
Gin, Rose and Leather – umm yes please…this scent certainly suits the flamboyant and fabulous Duke!
Naomi Goodsir Bois D’Ascece
Inspired by drinking smoked whiskey, surrounded by the mystical smell of the converted church Naomi lived in.
A fragrance to stimulate irresponsible behaviour…
Juniper, whiskey and cognac…sounds about right given it’s inspired by mythical korrigans who come out at night and get up to mischief!
Frapin & Cie Nevermore
Inspired by the ‘Toaster’ who leaves roses and cognac on Edgar Allen Poe’s grave every year on the 19th January. A boozy, red wine rose.
Penhaligon’s Juniper Sling
The roaring 20’s, it’s all about parties and of course, the Juniper Sling – a cocktail of joyous abandon.
Eight & Bob Annicke 5
A fruity, floral; without the innocence and with the addition of a deliciously sweet drink of rum.
27 87 Sonar
An outrageous blend of notes inspired by a completely immersive experience of sound at a music festival – beer, citrus, burnt rubber and flowers.
L’Artisan Parfumeur Noir Exquis
A French Patisserie after dark, a knock off drink of, an Irish coffee to compliment your sweet late night treats.
Phew, ok so I’m guessing you’re potentially a little tipsy after being tempted to grab a drink halfway through that mammoth list of delicious sounding scents and drinks.
