London Event [24 Jan] Gone But Not Forgotten: The Vintage Collection of Sarah McCartney

23rd October, 2012

Perfume Lovers London, in association with Basenotes, opens its 2013 season with pizzazz!

Perfumer, wordsmith and one woman marvel, Sarah McCartney, takes us on a tour of some great vintage perfumes from the days before ‘reformulation’ when perfume was often wild, turbulent and so much naughtier than today.

Sarah first started her collection because she wanted to have a reference point for making her own perfumes. We’ll be sampling some of her own creations as well.

Included in the night, the legendary Chypre from Coty, vintage Mitsouko (Guerlain), Bal A Versaille (Jean Desprez), Eau Sauvage, Le Dix (Balenciaga) Schiaparelli Sport.

To further chase the blues away there will be Birthday Cake to celebrate the first anniversary of Perfume Lovers London.

January 24th 7pm at the New Cavendish Club near Marble Arch.

Tickets cost £15 and are non-refundable.
