    Default Basenoters meetup in London next Friday (4th Dec) Plus three course lunch

    It is time to deck our necks with something warming and spicy and leave our olfactory wishlist in the eyeline of willing, generous relatives. To celebrate the festivities Basenotes is having another get together. As mentioned in our recent newsletters we will be getting into the spirit of the season with some sniffing and sharing over lunch and visiting some of our favourite establishments whilst meeting new friends in the industry never before involved in a Basenotes event.

    The full itinerary will be published next week and we are as excited as ever by the unique opportunity that these events present us with to learn more about the brands and be privy to secret preview sniffs. Penhaligons and Ormonde Jayne are welcoming us back to their beautiful stores in London's Covent Garden and Old Bond Street respectively. To visit these places in the midst of the midwinter glow is a sight to behold even before crossing the threshold into the glorious dens of delight that are home to these very different but equally English perfume houses.

    A new collaboration this year brings a stimulating talk from Ronny Geller who has founded an e-store dedicated to niche fragrances from houses such as Tauer Perfumes, Hilde Solioni, and I Profumi di Firenze. Ronny will be talking to us about her business and allowing us to smell some of these fascinating fragrances.

    We will be returning to The Cavendish Hotel on Jermyn Street where we enjoyed a fabulously luxuriant afternoon tea in August. This time however it is the holiday season and the hot weather is no longer at hand to force us into light meals. The frosty London air will send us hungrily indoors for a celebration banquet which, uniquely at this time of year, offers outstanding quality and superior value for money. The Basenotes Holiday Lunch ticket price includes a three course meal followed by mince pies and coffee, with us all seated around the same table to enjoy a real sense of occasion together.

    Oh man... I miss London, though maybe not as much in early winter. But I'm booked for a training programme that same week. Anyway, do keep us all posted about the group scent adventures!

    Can anyone give us a run down of the day and events? Inquiring minds want to live vicariously through you!
