Jo Malone and Fairmont Hotel Riyadh are coming together to bring a unique afternoon tea to life.

Beginning on May 1 and running for a limited time period, the Jo Malone London Afternoon Tea Experience promises guests a sensory journey which will combine the Fairmont Riyadh's much-loved Afternoon Tea experience with the luxurious scents and notes that define the most iconic fragrances created by Jo Malone.

A quintessential British tradition, afternoon tea is a ritualistic finger-food dining experience divided into three stages. Typically presented on a three-tiered platter, it usually features a layer of delicate sandwiches, another of freshly baked pastries or scones, and finally a selection of miniature cakes or desserts. As the name might suggest, the culinary afternoon delight is often accompanied by a pot of freshly brewed hot tea.

Similarly synonymous with high-end British culture is boutique scent house Jo Malone London. Celebrated worldwide for its sophistication and innovation in fragrance, Jo Malone is linked to timeless and instantly recognisable scents. Each fragrance blend is developed using the finest ingredients, ensuring that the fragrances offers distinct and memorable olfactory experiences.

Hosted at The Savoy Lounge, this afternoon tea experience invites guests to indulge in a culinary journey inspired by the natural ingredients used in the perfumery's fragrances such as cucumber, pomegranate, rose, lime, berries and cream.

Starting with savoury flavours, this plate will include delightful bites such as the Salmon Éclair featuring crisp cucumber and creamy avocado, complemented by a hint of lemon zest. Next, guests can savour a Grilled Halloumi Cheese paired with tender zucchini and tangy pickled walnut, served with a freshly baked baguette and pesto dip.

For an ultra indulgent mouthful, guests will love the Molten Gruyere Fondue: infused with a house-made, black truffle tapenade, this will be flavour sensation.

And, what would an afternoon tea experience be without a selection of freshly baked, traditional British Scones and a pot of tea?

To celebrate the collaboration, guests will also be gifted with a gift set of best-selling fragrances from Jo Malone London, and a gift voucher to use in store, ensuring the guests' sensory adventure will extend beyond the afternoon tea experience.
