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.

Red Queen is the second in our series of fragrances made for Ҫafleurebon’s birthday. Ҫafleurebon.com is a community dedicated entirely to the niche and indie fragrance community worldwide, run by the indefatigable New Yorker Trekkie and glamour queen Michelyn Camen. “Make me a rose I can love,” she asked, or rather told me. Red Queen is set within Alice in Wonderland, so it’s a whimsical spiced rose, with hints of Mad Hatter’s tea party and references to the elegantly clad White Rabbit in its carrot seed and parsnip essential oil top notes.
