THE VINTAGE SCENT SESSIONS

Join one of my indulgent and immersive forays into the past, at The Vintage Scent Sessions. Each time, I take everyone on a tour of a decade, where scents (male and female) get mixed up with and illuminated by the wider cultural scene, from movies to music, social change, fashion, art and nightlife. There’s plenty of sniffing and sampling, together with obscene amounts of cake and Prosecco. Events are hosted on Saturdays at Les Senteurs’ scent salon in Marylebone.

Come along to your favourite era, or partake in the whole journey, from the Belle Epoque to the 1980s. Tickets are £35 including all food and cakes. If you want to get a friend a present so they can claim against the date of their choice, buy from our gift voucher page.

Events start at 2.30pm – when a date becomes popular, we also add an additional session that day, starting at 11.30am. So if one session’s sold out, there should be another….
