Join us for the launch of ‘Perfume – In Search Of Your Signature Scent’ by Neil Chapman (aka The Black Narcissus)

Date: Thursday 28th March 2019

Venue: Roullier White, 125 Lordship Lane, East Dulwich, London, SE22 8HU

Neil Chapman is an award-winning and deeply passionate perfume writer whose wondrous fragrance blog ‘The Black Narcissus‘ has had scent lovers enthralled for years. This March, Neil’s first book ‘Perfume – In Search Of Your Signature Scent (Hardie Grant £16)‘  will be published, a magnificent tome in which he expertly guides us through the world of fragrance. Perfumes of every variety are listed ‘note by note’ in clearly divided categories that steer readers in the direction of a scent that they will love and cherish as a signature. Chapman profiles perfumes that have defied expectation to become iconic in their own right, from the legendary Tabac Blond and Bal A Versailles to cult favourite Caldy Island Lavender.

The book explores popular notes (for example, vanilla, sandalwood, jasmine, rose, patchouli, oud) or a broader identifiable group (such as ‘oceanics’, ‘green florals’ or ‘anti-perfume’), giving an insight into that particular category as well as a clear sense of the similarities and differences between the scents so you can mix and match your preferences. Neil’s commendations are peppered with interesting facts about famous people who wore them and personal anecdotes.

Featuring over 700 scents, from vintage perfumes to department store classics, rarities and niche boutique fragrances, Perfume is a true portal into the beautiful world of perfume. The further you go on this journey, the more you will be amazed by how many beautiful creations exist if you take the time to look.

Please join us on Thursday March 28th at independent perfumery Roullier White for the exclusive launch of this definitive guide to olfactory excellence. Author Neil Chapman will be flying in from his home in Japan to read excerpts and answer any and all questions that you may have to make your fragrance quests more fruitful, and discuss the world of international fragrance blogging.

Guests will enjoy a glass of fizz, delicious nibbles and will take home a copy of the book. Neil will be on hand to sign books at the end of the night.
