Win­ning By A Nose

Where Berlin - - SHOPPING -

For Ste­fanie Hanssen, it was her grand­mother’s unique rose per­fume that in­spired her to open Frau To­nis Par­fum, a chic per­fume bou­tique around the cor­ner from Check­point Charlie. The shop’s best-sell­ing fra­grances evoke the Berlin of the Roar­ing Twen­ties: take their blend Linde Berlin No. 1, for ex­am­ple, loaded with the sweet­ness of the bloom­ing linden trees along Un­ter den Linden. Even more popular is Pure Vi­o­let No. 37, a scent com­posed in mem­ory of Berlin’s leg­endary Marlene Di­et­rich. And if none of the three dozen op­tions suit your tastes, you can take a scent test and try your hand at blend­ing your own. Frau To­nis also in­vites guests to take a unique ol­fac­tory jour­ney dur­ing a pri­vate per­fume work­shop for two: for €99 you get to bring home a bot­tle of your per­sonal per­fume and other treats.
