Amanda Carr - Fragrant Festivals, Fashion and Fragrance and National Fragrance Week
During National Fragrance Week, what better time to have our perfume pal Amanda Carr on the show. Amanda is a Jasmine-award-winning writer & trend forecaster for @wgsn with a fashion background, but who fell head over heels for fragrance. Together with the brilliant stylist & Editor of @holeandcorner magazine, Tamara Fulton, she set up the @wewearperfume blog, asking people about their scent choices.
Now, with a view to bringing perfume to the public, Amanda is organising an exciting new project in London - the @barnesfragrancefair - taking place on Saturday May 20th.
We are thrilled to have been invited to talk on a panel there with @aliceduparcq, about mood and fragrance! So, listen to the episode and find out more about all the exciting brands taking part, including talks, perfume-making workshops with @4160tuesdays, and even a fragrance and music event featuring @lorchestrepsrfum at the incredible @olympic_studios_records
