Love is in the details when fragrance meets flavour! In one-of-a-kind partnership with the perfume princess herself Mona Kattan, Jumeirah Mina A’Salam’s pastry boutique, Margaux unveils a collection of desserts with the finest of flavours inspired by the latest KAYALI fragrances.
“As a gourmand lover, I am so excited to bring some of my favourite Kayali fragrances to life with Margaux and the very talented Chef Alexandre Dufeu. Like food, fragrances have a special way of telling a story or evoking emotions and memories through the notes and ingredients. I really loved experimenting with all of the different flavours that inspired these beautiful desserts and I cannot wait for you to get a taste of what we have come up with,” says Kattan.
Connecting bridges between patisserie and perfumery, acclaimed Executive Pastry Chef Alexandre Dufeu has thoughtfully crafted three exquisite cakes just in time for Valentine’s Day, using ingredients commonly used in both worlds, all wonderfully presented in the shape of the brand’s iconic fragrance bottles – Invite Only Amber, Eden Juicy Apple and Vanilla Royale Sugared Patchouli.
Perfectly balanced, the edible version of KAYALI’s “Invite Only Amber” is a soft yet tantalising chocolate mousse, rich in texture and flavour with a touch of cherry and smokiness for just the right finish. A delight for the senses, the fruity flowery “Eden Juicy Apple” inspired dessert is a mouth-watering fusion of juicy red apple, sweet berries and a silky frosting, encapsulating the notes of the perfume seamlessly. Chef Alexandre’s version of “Vanilla Royale Sugared Patchouli” is a delicately flavoured vanilla and tonka bean dessert designed as a golden bottle, with every bite melting in your mouth, leaving notes of Crème Brulée and Brown Sugar.
“Margaux’s partnership with Kayali is a testament to Jumeirah Mina A’Salam’s commitment to consistently deliver beyond expectations and reimagine the culinary experience. It was a joy to design this limited-edition collection of desserts with no shortage of inspiration. Pastry is a highly sophisticated form of art and combining it together with perfumery allowed me to take innovation to new heights. It is not only about designing cakes into artistic pieces but also ensuring an effortless harmony in flavours and colours,” said Chef Alexandre Dufeu.
