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.

Fluffy Lemon Top
It’s not that fluffy and we didn’t make it with lemon; it’s citrus fruit arrival comes from orange, tangerine and bergamot essential oils. It reminded us of the happiness we get from eating a lemon top ice cream at the seaside on a summer day, so the name just happened.
In reality, after its happy juicy introduction, it’s a floral chypre with an iris-narcissus-lily of the valley heart, with a generous topping of white chocolate sauce, tonka absolute and musks. If we started again, perhaps we’d give it a sophisticated name, more suited to the art deco ice cream parlour of a Normandy hotel, graced with elegantly dressed artists, delicately tasting the chef ’s latest culinary extravagances. Fluffy Lemon Top will tempt you in with its friendly top notes and draw you closer by slowly unveiling its hidden charms.
