Rhubarb & Custard 1:29

Eau de Parfum

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.

4160 Tuesday's Rhubarb & Custard. Simply the best rhubarb. Tart, slightly herbal, red and fruity, touched with a little fresh citrus squeeze and nestled in tons of warm, sweet, golden vanilla custard and a hint of honey graham cracker. A thick, creamy, decadent vanilla custard with bright, fruity tones


This remarkable fragrance was a blind-buy and a leap of faith, since rhubarb scents don't usually work out for me. It's exceeded everything that I hoped for, it has made me squeal and laugh and cry.... For me it is just perfect, and I will truly treasure it and get much joy from each time I wear it.
