Talking Scents in Sussex with The Perfume Society’s Jo Fairley and author Maggie Alderson

Date: Saturday 20th October, 2.30pm – 4.15 p.m.

Venue: Prospero’s Project, 8 West Street, Alfriston, BN26 5UX.

You’re invited to a scent-sational afternoon with The Perfume Society’s co-founder Jo Fairley and author Maggie Alderson at what is definitely our favourite bookshop in the world…

Fragrance aficionados Jo and Maggie will be discussing their love affairs with perfume, exploring the extraordinary world of scents and revealing how all of us can improve our olfactory skill and appreciation for perfumes and scent. The afternoon also includes a smelling session based on our How to Improve Your Sense of Smell workshops.

All attendees will return home with a copy of Maggie’s novel, The Scent of You, as well as a richly-scented goodie bag. In addition, everyone attending will be entered into a raffle to win a year’s membership to The Perfume Society (and we’re throwing in some other lovely goodies, too).

Jo is the co-founder of Green & Black’s chocolate and The Perfume Society, where she edits our V.I.P. Club magazine The Scented Letter. A former magazine editor, she is a four-times winner of the Jasmine Award, the ‘Oscars’ of the perfume-writing world. She is also co-author of the bestselling Beauty Bible series, and expressed her love of perfume via a blog, ‘The Scent Critic’, before co-founding The Perfume Society.

Maggie is a former journalist and magazine editor, and the author of nine novels, four fashion and style guides and a children’s book. Her latest novel, The Scent of You, follows perfume blogger Polly Masterson-Mackay as she navigates the heady world of luxury fragrance.

In addition to the book, the goody-bag, entry to the raffle, the workshop and the discussion, the £20 ticket includes light refreshments and a 20% on-the-day discount on book and card purchases at Much Ado.

Proceeds will benefit Prospero’s Project, the shop’s wonderful social enterprise.
