With 28 locations – including Downtown Disney in Anaheim and Disney Springs in Orlando – Salt & Straw serves up artisanal flavors to ice cream lovers from coast to coast, but now they’ve introduced a new way to experience ice cream: Culinary Perfume.

The reason for such an innovative creation? According to Salt & Straw, ice cream itself has no scent, and while individual ingredients may be fragrant – like cinnamon in the Cinnamon & Honey Fried Chicken ice cream or watermelon in the Pink Rosé & Watermelon sorbet – anything that would create their aromas is frozen.
The solution? The first-ever ice cream topping crafted with partners Imaginary Authors (creators of unique fragrances “born from the concept of scent as art”) for an all-sensory ice cream experience.

How It Works
