By day, Sfumato, a new fragrance store based in Detroit’s Midtown, features fragrances that are natural, unisex and made locally in small batches. By night, it transforms into an 18-seat craft cocktail bar called Castalia.

Its menu is designed so that each signature Sfumato scent is paired with a cocktail mirroring ingredients or aspects of the fragrance. The cocktail and scent are then presented simultaneously to be experienced as a duo.

Owners and husband-and-wife team Kevin Peterson and Jane Larson dropped by the Fox2 News studios to display Sfumato’s signature scents in bottles and some of the signature cocktails they’re serving up at Castalia. Click here for more information.

Random sensory quotes

I have always been far more interested in sound than technique, and how sounds work together, how they can be layered. I think electronic music, in its infancy anyway, allowed us to create music in a way that hadn’t really been possible before. It created a new kind of musician.
