I had meant to write a review for a long time, since I ordered twice from 4160 Tuesdays last year and was amazed by the incredible customer service and the overall house artistry and identity of the house.
I really appreciate how sweet and accommodating the team was, in making sure my order was shipped fast because I was only in UK for a couple of days and was worried that I would miss the parcels (I don't live in UK and only took advantage of being there for a few days to order with the UK shipping fees). I received both orders in time, and let me tell you, every parcel is a gift in itself: the bottles and samples come in the loveliest presentation, and are accompanied by a nice handwritten note. It's a delight to unwrap, read, and it makes you feel so special. I really like how they make every order so personalized and human.
Each order also came with a complimentary sample, even if the order value was not necessarily very high, which i find so nice, since most other companies are very stingy with samples even if you spend a good amount (I recently spent almost 150 GBP on another well-known company website and there was absolutely no extra in the package....). I'm so impressed on how the team was able to choose samples that I would really love. I assume they try to find something that would match the buyer's taste, based on the content of the order, or at least it looks like they do so. Because each time it was a winner, and it was all the more delightful because they were scents that I would have never chosen myself (just based on description or notes), but I ended up loving them. (My two free samples were Midnight in the Palace Garden - which is not a cheap one, since it's a parfum concentration, so i'm even more amazed that it came as free sample, and Tart's Knickers' drawer, which makes me feel so confident, fun, and for some odd reason, deliciously retro)
So far, from all the scents I tried, there is none that I dislike, which is crazy because I'm usually picky. The 4160 Tuesdays perfumes are so different from the mainstream (and even niche) perfumery, there is so much creativity and at the same time, the scents speak to you and your personal memories in a very special way.
I like the house so much that I pre-ordered the "Waft from the Loft" bespoken EdP, without even knowing how it will smell like (just having listened to how Dan, Joe and Sarah talked about the first trials, and knowing Dan and Joe's tastes), just because I admire Sarah McCartney's talent so much that I can't really see how it wouldn't be anything less than fantastic. I can't wait to be in August to receive it !!!
Bottom line, 4160 Tuesdays definitively stands out, not only as a perfume company but as a company in general, with their oh so lovely and generous staff, and the passion in everything they do, and the gorgeous creativity of the scents. If you're a perfume lover, do yourself a favor, try their scents and you'll find things that you've always looked for without even knowing it. It's that enchanting.
Big thanks to Sarah McCartney and her team for the great experience they give us!
