Last year I was invited by the vivacious Lila Das Gupta of Olfactory Events to hold a talk on the subject of summer fragrances for Perfume Lovers London. It is a day that I will never forget – the weather was beautiful and being the day before the Olympics the excitement in the city was palpable (we even caught the Olympic Torch on Oxford Street) and the evening was fun, fragrant and filled with wonderful perfume people.
This year I have been invited back for The Candy Perfume Boy’s Summer Special Take 2 on Thursday 18 July 2013. The evening will consist of many a summer fragrance as well as the possibility of an even more colourful shirt than last year’s…
“He charmed us first with his natty shirt and sharp observations- now he’s back by popular demand: our very own Candy Perfume Boy, AKA Thomas Dunckley, will be hosting the second Perfume Lovers London Summer Special.
Last year he introduced us to some fabulous summer scents, many of which have become firm favourites (Infusion d’Iris and Tuberose de Nuit were big discoveries).
This year Thomas will be keeping us entertained with some new releases as well as some old favourites to liven up your summer. Whether you’ve got summer parties or concerts to attend, picnics and weddings, or journeys that you’ve planned, as usual there will be lots to smell and fall in love with.”
Tickets are £15 and can be booked via the Perfume Lovers London Event Page. It promises to be a fun evening of good smells and even better discourse. There will be refreshments and where possible a sample to take home so I hope to see you all (yes all of you) there!
