A sensory sensation in form of Afternoon Tea

In collaboration with leading French perfumer diptyque our culinary team have created a new Afternoon tea for autumn inspired by the brands most iconic scents. 

Served daily in the gilded Oscar Wilde Bar from 1 September, the diptyque Afternoon tea promises to be a sensory sensation with dishes infused with flavours and ingredients found in four of their scents. 

As well as the new items from our award-winning pastry team, each guest enjoying the diptyque Afternoon tea will receive a beautifully gift packaged 70g Baies candle to take away, diptyque’s most popular scent, a combination of Bulgarian roses and blackcurrant leaves.  

The Menu

Transforming the classic Afternoon tea experience into an indulgence for the senses, Executive Pastry Chef, Sarah Barber, has created four new sweet delicacies in conjunction with diptyque, each one using the flavours and ingredients to be found in four of their scents. In addition to the classic Afternoon tea served, guests will enjoy the following new items, corresponding to diptyque’s Roses, Vanilla, Violette and Verveine scents.


Rose Victoria

A Victoria sponge with a raspberry and rose jam and a lychee and rose mousse, topped with silver leaf and crystallised rose
