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.

This listing is for a set of their Candy Store perfumes in 2.25ml atomizer EDP form, as follows:
The Rhubarb & Custard fragrance we all dreamed of. It's named 1:29, not after a train timetable, but because it's 1 part Rhubarb & Citrus Cologne to 29 parts Vanilla Custard; this turned out to be the ideal combination of the two separate fragrances which we tested at the special 4160Tuesdays/Mrs Gloss & The Goss afternoon workshop. The ideal blend of tart with sweet, smooth with sharp, bright with soothing, as chosen by eight discerning Glossers as the perfect balance between the two contrasting themes. A pudding in a perfume.
A bright light sparky citrus scent to drag us out of the grey days of winter into shiny spring! Bursts of citrus and lemon tartness, with a touch of mellow sweetness too it is the most sophisticated way we can think of to bring back memories of sweet shops and playtimes. The tanginess of citrus fruits, the softness of musk and vanilla.
Over the Chocolate Shop is the gloriously rich aroma you can inhale as the chocolatiers make their first batch of pralines in the early morning. Melting cocoa butter, a dash of coffee, hazelnut extract and a drop of vanilla absolute.
A bottle of creamy custardness with notes of crumble and of hay and tobacco absolutes. (These add sophistication and depth to a fragrance which might otherwise be a little bit sweet and fluffy.) Our sophisticated Vanilla Custard fragrance is made to last, and stays close to the skin to invite closer inspection.
The C!CC came into being when we asked our Facebook group what their ideal fragrances would be, and one answer was white flowers blended with caramel, added to coconut blended with cocoa. How could we resist? Somewhere in this creamy cocktail of melty toffee, coconut ice and chocolate there is a refined aromatic strand of gentle lily helping it to rise above the sweetness.
It got its name because that's the response we got when we tried it. It joined our range because our chief bottler, film-maker and only one here who can reach the top shelf, Arthur McBain, demanded that this happen, and we like it when he's happy. Besides it's a very happy scent, and we all need something that makes us feel wonderful.
