Pastry Chef Launches Dessert-Scented Perfume


For years Spanish pastry chef Jordi Roca has been creating desserts based on famous perfumes, and now he’s released a fragrance meant to smell like one of his creations. Núvol de Llimona smells like a mix of milk cream, brown butter, and lemon sponge cake, the ingredients that go into his recipe for Lemon Distillation. He’ been selling the $70 bottles at his restaurant, where he serves baked goods based on Lancôme’s Miracle, Terre by Hermes, and Calvin Klein’s Eternity (which consists of mandarin orange granita with orange flower gelée, basil, and a vanilla cream). Yet, there’s still one fragrant dish that eludes him. “We’ve never been able to get Chanel No. 5 to taste good. Too many aldehydes,” he says.
