All things olfactory

Scents of success lead you by the nose to Thong Lor's Perfume bar and restaurant

- +

When dining is about an appreciation of good food and not just the contentment of one's stomach, it's essential that all five senses are indulged. And amidst the taste- and sight-centric majority in Bangkok's food-service sphere, only one restaurant claims to focus on all things olfactory. 

The sense of smell is paramount at Perfume Fragrance Bar and Aromatic Cuisine, which opened a couple of months ago and regards itself as a restaurant that's as sensible in cookery as it is in mixology. Fragrance takes a key role in both disciplines.

It's difficult to go straight to Perfume's kitchen without a glimpse of its bar. Not that you'd want to miss it, the cocktail-obsessed 120-seater has almost 20 house-created concoctions _ alcoholic and virgin.
