More information

The experience

The workshop will start with exploring materials from sustainable sources, including up-cycled naturals and renewable, biodegradable molecules.

In a relaxed, peaceful session, you will be encouraged to describe not just what you smell, but also what you feel, see and hear when you inhale.

You'll be able to ask everything you have ever wanted to know about how perfume is made.

With Sarah's guidance, you will have the opportunity to blend your own fragrance to take home, using the structure which she uses to create her own creatively acclaimed perfumes.

Meet Sarah McCartney

Sarah McCartney is the founder and perfumer of 4160Tuesdays, an award-winning artisanal fragrance company.

Born in Saltburn-by-the-Sea in Yorkshire, she worked as a semi-professional musician and jewellery maker, before running events for the Guardian and Observer newspapers, then joining Lush as their chief writer. After writing a novel featuring a problem-solving perfumer, she decided to make the fragrances she had invented for the book.

Since 2012 her West London perfumery has been making adventurous scents inspired by happy times and places, past, present and imaginary. She also co-wrote The Perfume Companion, a myth-busting, entertaining guide to choosing a perfume, published in 2019.

She believes that everyone should write at least one story, paint a picture, and make a perfume in their life, and set up her Scenthusiasm online scent school to help make this happen.

Currently she is encouraging perfume-makers to concentrate on sustainable sourcing - both materials and packaging - to make fragrances which have low environmental impact with no loss of loveliness.


Join us on Sunday 24th September at JUNI & CO for a very special make-your-own perfume workshop.

Price includes your own bespoke 15ml bottle of fragrance, lunch at Yalm's private dining room, herbal tea and a glass of JUNI's bespoke 'Balance' gin and tonic. If you really love your fragrance, Sarah can remake it a bigger bottle back at her lab.
