• Mandy Aftel to give talk in London (Jun 6th) - cancelled

    [Please note this event has now been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. Mandy sends her apologies] Mandy Aftel will be in London on Monday June 6th to talk about natural perfumery and will demonstrate the construction of her Parfum de Maroc fragrance. The event is being held at The Covent Garden Hotel, 10 Monmouth Street, London - and starts at 7:30pm.

    Aftel says of Parfum de Maroc:
    Inspired by an ancient Moroccan spice recipe Ras el Hanout or "top of the shop" - a mixture of the best spices a seller has to offer. Traditionally having many dozens of spices, I took creative liberty to include the ones that would blend beautifully in a perfume. My recipe is based on Bulgarian rose, a smoothing element that takes some of the edge off the spices, like galangal, nutmeg absolute, and black pepper; it massages them into a rounded softness, finished off with the freshness of bitter orange. Built on a base of myrrh and cardamom, I layered the spices vertically throughout the perfume. The audience will get to smell (on perfume blotters) all the essences that make up the perfume.
    Tickets -- £18 to include a glass of wine To reserve a ticket please email Louise Bloor louise@louisebloor.com
