Gold bottle of 4160Tuesdays perfume



The scent of Christmas Pudding alight with blue brandy flames, served in an oak panelled dining room, lit with candles. Rich, fruity & boozy, with woods and a wax candle note.  

Captured by Candlelight it captures the fragrance of a huge flaming, Christmas pudding being wheeled into an oak panelled, candlelit dining room in 1933.

If you'd like to read the short story which goes with the fragrance, a tale of intrigue, card cheats, and Detective Inspector Billingham solving the mystery, then you can go here, and download it from our Facebook group files at 4160Tuesdays News.

After first sniff, my thought was "Why hadn't I tried this delight before?!" Oh my the genius of Sarah McCartney comes through loud and clear. A delectable gourmand with memories of a flickering candlelight holiday table. Decadent cognac set ablaze on rich fruits. Sticky spiced toffee melted on hazelnut. All gloriously singing warmed in aged oak barrels.


This is pure genius. I cannot wait to drown myself in this in wintertime.
