Absolut And Kahlua Link Up To Debut An Espresso Martini Fragrance

Espresso Martinis are all the rage right now, so why not smell like one? Absolut and Kahlúa are celebrating the holidays and cementing their union with the release of Blend No. 83, a fragrance capturing the scent of the popular cocktail. 


In 1983, a famous bartender had a request from a model in his London bar and the espresso martini was born. According to a recent survey, 91% of espresso martini drinkers say that when they smell espresso or coffee in a bar, it makes them want to order an espresso martini. Hence Blend No. 83.

With the 1980s influencing everything from fashion and beauty to holiday trends, this gift is a fun interpretation of the cocktail’s resurgence while also paying homage to its origin story. For a limited-time only, the fragrance will come with an ‘80s-inspired crystal martini coupe-like bottle.

In partnership with Imaginary Authors perfumery, Blend No. 83 contains notes of Dark Chocolate, Sugarcane Rum, Arabica Coffee, Velvety Foam, and Night Musk. 

Blend No. 83 is available for pre-order today with complimentary flacon while supplies last and will begin shipping early December for $105.
