You’re used to luxury hotels offering up customized amenities like bath salts and slippers, but would you want to smell like your favorite hotel?
New York‘s landmark hotel, The Plaza, introduced its signature scent last month. Appropriately called “The Plaza,” the eau de parfum was created exclusively for the hotel by Krigler, a popular New York City-based fragrance house.
The New York Times blog writes:
“We wanted to create a modern fragrance that appeals to the senses and characteristics that the Plaza Hotel embodies: grace, beauty, elegance and style,” said Kristin Franzese, executive vice president of retail. She also alluded to the hotel’s best selling bath robes and linens as inspiration for the luxurious new souvenir. “People love to leave with a little piece of history.”
The signature scent is a blend of bergamot, grapefruit and iris, with amber and leather undertones. Guests can buy the perfume exclusively at the hotel’s store, Plaza Beauty, for $95 for a 1.7-ounce bottle. It’s also available as a soap ($18) or candle ($65).
