Creativity to fire your five senses
collaboration to support and highlight local talents, the real value of the events is in giving back to Jocelyn Franciscus’s charity Cord by raising funds and awareness for the spinal injury unit at Fiona Stanley Hospital.
“Jocelyn is a really good friend of ours and does amazing things. She is one of the most inspiring people I have ever met in my life, pre and post her accident.”
Five Bar owner Andy McIntyre said he was looking forward to the challenge of matching food and drinks to the boutique range of fragrances.
“Being a long-time friend of Bree’s and a big advocate for Beaufort Street, it’s a really great opportunity for us to work together,” McIntyre said.
“I sat down with all the chefs and my mixologist and nutted out some really interesting dishes.
“It is quite inspiring working with fragrances; they have so much variety that you can really delve into little bits and pieces and bring them out.
“One perfume, Love in Black, has some great blackcurrant notes, so we’ve matched that with a beautiful pinot noir from down south and duck breast with molecular currant gel and orange tones throughout.”
Cottesloe boutique Lulu & I owner Teresa Rovedatti said she could not wait to put together her fashion show with Empire Rose, Infamous Friends and Zomp Shoes.
“There are some beautiful rich colours for winter, it is going to be amazing,” Rovedatti said. Ten fragrances matched with cocktails, tastings, artwork auctions, live music and a fashion parade at Five Bar.
