A Scent Dinner is the combination of two stimulating experiences, where fine dining and a master class in scent meet.

Two experiences take place at the same time: the first, an olfactory and invisible dinner, the second a culinary one where scents are translated into a tasting menu.

It's a collaboration between perfume critic and connoisseur Chandler Burr and three culinary masters, the enthusiastic and creative executive chefs from Restaurant Etichetta, Restaurant Vivendo, Restaurant Terrazza Danieli.

One scent menu interpreted by three chefs, each creating a personalized and tailored culinary experience according to his philosophy and ideas.

During each dinner, guests are invited to consume an olfactory course made of scent raw materials and les parfum gourmands used in renowned perfumes, followed by a culinary creation inspired by those perfumes and made entirely of food raw materials. The evening travels between two senses.


Saturday 15th September
