The scents she creates are starting to show up in martinis, margaritas, and even some fancier concoctions..yum?
Where can you get a little bit of this pourable potion? The vials sit behind high-profile restaurant bars, all around the country, including NYC's PDT, Pegu Club, and Booker and Dax at Momofuku Ssam Bar.
According to the NY Times, Many bartenders believe the scents add one more dimension to the multisensory experience of a good drink.

Ms. Aftel says she's never experimented with the artificial ingredients that dominate the scent and flavor industries.
“It is the synthetic that stinks up the elevator,” she said. “I am not interested in scents that have that kind of staying power. A natural perfume costs more and disappears quickly, but while it lasts it’s extremely beautiful.”
