WHAT a week it’s been! It’s felt more like a month, given the sheer number of fragrant events. From Suzy meeting Jon Bon Jovi and Dominique Ropion, to attending mind-blowing masterclasses, smelling some truly exciting new fragrances, and dinner with Aurélien Guichard and the Matiere Premiere team (while smelling their *top secret* new fragrance, launching early Autumn) there’s hardly time to pack it all in (so we’ll continue the explorations next week).

PLUS we’re answering your Perfume Prescription questions - suggesting powdery scents to layer with, finding linalool-free fragrances for a listener whose friend’s allergic, and picking fresh, breezy but affordable perfumes for packing while working in Grenada!

Linalool-free fragrances:

@4160tuesdays Our Modern Lives - Alpha & Beta.

Message on linalool free fragrances from 4160 Tuesdays founder, Sarah McCartney:
“Yes, Alpha and Beta have no linalool. It's in rosewood, bergamot, magnolia leaf, lavender - so many naturals - and is also used in isolation to smooth out woody fragrances. That's why it's in almost everything! It's always written on the QI list on box though, so it's checkable.
Of ours, there's none in Freshly Laundered, Warm Sands Blue Ocean, Cherry Who? Crikey! Coconut Caramel, Over the Chocolate Shop, Creamy Vanilla Crumble, Temptation, Freshly Laundered, Honey Jasmine Karma, Clouds Illusion, Dancing With Strangers and more, but I don't want to bore you! The Molecules series have no linalool either. All the best,Sarah.”
