4160 Tuesdays Scents
"an incredibly gifted and entirely off-the-wall self-taught perfumer, Sarah McCartney, who single-handedly gives the finger to those who sniffily say you need a chemistry degree and several years hanging around the great and the fragrant good in Grasse, to become a ‘nose.’"
Josephine Fairley, The Scent Critic.
Sarah had been writing about perfume for 15 years, then started making the scents she'd described in her novel, fragrances that reminded the characters of a happy time. Then friends started asking her to make perfumes to capture their own happy times. Odette Toilette launched them at a Scratch + Sniff even, the great Josephine Fairley wrote a lovely review and - ta dah! - we're in the perfumery business. If you're on a quest for for your own bespoke perfume, something unusual and original, or a long lost favourite, have a look around.

The name: if we live until we're 80, we have 4160 Tuesdays.
That's all. Let's not waste them.
Let's use them to write, think, make and do lovely things. Or, if that sounds great but you don't have time, to buy lovely things that other makers have put together.
On a Tuesday, do something different.
The 4160Tuesdays project is about being creative: mindful observation, nerd-like fascination, endless exploration and - fingers crossed - mixing it all up and having good ideas. At least once a week. If we can't be bright and brilliant every day, at least let's have a crack at making Tuesdays interesting.
