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.

We were commissioned to make the aroma of an orange tree to fragrance a very exclusive gathering, so we did. Then everyone here at our studio asked for a bottle of it to wear, news leaked out and our customers wanted to try it, so we guided it through the correct procedures that all perfumes must follow, and decided to launch it. It reminds our customers of Seville, Sicily, Marrakesh and California, wherever they have sat in the shade of orange leaves. Wear it, and you'll imagine you’re there.

"I first smelled this in December when Sarah sent me a sample. It was love at first sniff. This is, bar none, the BEST orange fragrance I have ever smelled. It's lush and ripe, sweet and tangy, orange and petitgrain. I can't help but smell my wrists constantly. Best find of the year." - wakefieldscentguy
