We’re thrilled to share with you this fragrant event from London Craft Week and The Beaumont Hotel – that as a follower of The Perfume Society – we think you’ll really enjoy…
Date: Wednesday 8th May – Sunday 12th May 2019
Time: 10.30am – 8.30pm daily
Venue: The Beaumont Hotel, 8 Balderton Street, London, W1K 6TF
For London Craft Week 2019, The Beaumont plays host to some of the stars of contemporary British perfumery, each of whom has specially created a new fragrance for the Jimmy Beaumont Perfume Collection.
The brief was to design a bespoke scent – personal or ambient, in any format (perfume, scented candle, body spray, oil) – inspired by a character in The Beaumont’s gallery of rebels and reprobates from the golden age of stage and screen.
Among those taking part are Tom Daxon, Ormonde Jayne, Floris London, Paul Schütze, Sarah McCartney of 4160 Tuesdays, The Experimental Perfume Club, and Penhaligons, and their inspirations range from Lord Berners to Dolores del Rio, F Scott Fitzgerald and Vita Sackville West.
Some of the perfumes are available to purchase; some perfumers will create bespoke fragrances.
Visitors will be able to experience the Jimmy Beaumont Perfume Collection, thus named after the hotel’s fictional founder, in the hotel’s striking Art Deco lobby from Wednesday 8 to Sunday 12 May, from 10.30am to 8.30pm.
Entry is free.
NB This is not an event held by The Perfume Society, rather organised by London Craft Week and The Beaumont Hotel.
