  • Description
      Andrea recently took a class with the wonderful Sarah McCartney, the owner and master perfume blender behind 4160Tuesdays. She loved the class so much, she asked her to join the Indie Marketplace, and she accepted! From their website: 4160Tuesdays is an artisan perfumery based in London where we've been hand-making adventurous scents since 2011. We create all our perfumes in small batches of 50-200 bottles at our Hammersmith studio, where we also run fragrance-making workshops. Our perfumes are inspired by a place or a person at a certain moment, and created by our perfumer, Sarah McCartney (who isn't related to any of the other more famous McCartneys but she does get asked quite often). We'd like to make our world a lovelier place starting with the small space around us and working outwards. 4160 Tuesdays stands out from other niche fragrance brands not just because it’s British, creative, witty and pioneering, but for an indie house handmaking all our fragrances, we're unusually affordable. We want everyone who’s interested in fragrance to be able to try them. Want to explore indie maker reviews? Please visit our forum! Captured By Candlelight A huge plum pudding alight with blue brandy flames, served in an oak panelled dining room, lit with candles. Rich, fruity & boozy, with oak woods and a hint of dripping hot wax candle. Captured by Candlelight first came into being when our philosopher friend, Professor Barry Smith asked for the aroma of Christmas pudding for a television programme he was appearing on the following morning. Very quickly, Sarah blended the scent of dark sugar, dried fruits soaked in cognac and toasted hazelnuts. Taking this as the heart, Sarah set it in a British country house in the winter of 1933.
