The Rhubarb & Custard fragrance we all dreamed of. It's named 1:29, not after a train timetable, but because it's 1 part Rhubarb & Citrus Cologne to 29 parts Vanilla Custard; this turned out to be the ideal combination of the two separate fragrances which we tested at the special 4160Tuesdays/Mrs Gloss & The Goss afternoon workshop. The ideal blend of tart with sweet, smooth with sharp, bright with soothing, as chosen by eight discerning Glossers as the perfect balance between the two contrasting themes. A pudding in a perfume.
