Smells good... Must be afternoon tea

I love vanilla, and I'm rather partial to a spot of afternoon tea- so I'm itching for the 12th June when the Laura Mercier Perfume Afternoon Tea launches at the Fifth Floor Restaurant, Harvey Nichols. Served between 2.30 p.m.. and 5.30 p.m. on weekdays, and 3.30 p.m. on Saturdays, I'm betting it'll provide a great antidote to the inevitable mid-afternoon shopping fatigue. Vanilla Gourmande is one of Laura Mercier's most enduringly popular scents- and the department store have commissioned their own master tea blenders to create a complementary, bespoke blend which includes jasmine, vanilla, rose and green Chinese tea- evoking the notes in the best-selling fragrance.

The accompanying menu- created by Harvey Nick's Executive Chef Jonas Karlsson- aims to do the same. Kicking off with a trio of classic finger sandwiches- smoked salmon, cheese and pickle and egg mayo, things really get interesting with the sweets- Kumquat and vanilla marmalade served with scones and clotted cream, Vanilla lemon cupcake, Chocolate praline mousse cake, Raspberry and rose eclair and Chocolate, pistachio and peach macaroons. That lot for £19.95 pp strikes me as a perfectly necessary indulgence- but if you want to push the boat out even further, opt for the Champagne version (from £32 pp), or have a bottle of hand-wrapped fragrance delivered with the food (£59.95 pp). To book, call the Fifth Floor Restaurant on 020 7235 5250
