Olfactory memory, they say, is extremely powerful! Throughout our lives, our memories store odors that, when we smell them again, bring back memories and emotions of past experiences.

Praktik Èssens is a truly unique boutique hotel because, through the world of perfume, it pays tribute to that primal sense of human beings: smell.

The Hotel has been designed to give guests the opportunity to learn about the world of perfume. Everything in the hotel revolves around this theme through informative and education features that offer our guests a wonderful sensory journey. The building has been converted into a genuine pyramid of fragrances, carefully choosing different perfume tones on each floor to distinguish the background, core and end notes of a particular perfume: the Èssens Barcelona range of perfumes.

And, inspired by the city of Barcelona, Praktik Èssens has created its own fragrances to capture the essences of the sea, the mountains, and the flowers of the city and its surroundings. After a careful selection process, Praktik presents its 4 Èssens fragrances: Mar, Herbas, Flor and Barcelona. This last fragrance is remarkable in that it blends the three previous fragrances in very studied proportions. For us, it directly evokes the city of Barcelona!

The hotel is located on the most luxurious avenue in Barcelona, Paseo de Gracia, featuring not only top fashion brands and restaurants, but also a large proportion of Barcelona’s modernist buildings, including La Pedrera and Casa Batlló.

The Èssens is located in a beautiful historical 19 th century building with a majestic facade of neo-Arab style arches and window, declared architectural heritage of Barcelona. Designed by the prestigious architect Domènec Balet - awarded with a gold medal - this is one of the buildings of his architectural legacy that has survived.
