With 4160 Tuesdays' Paris 1948, Sarah McCartney captures the Parisian post-war period at the height of its reputation as one of Europe's most fashionable destinations. Utilising a combination of sparkling fruit notes, the effervescent colours and playful insouciance of the era are instantly evoked as the scent develops. From an opening redolent of ripe peach aromas married with assertive grapefruit and nuanced, peppery basil, the fragrance begins to build itself around the striking and romantic tones of vibrant rose and beguiling orange blossom. Cedar and rosewood come together to provide body to the fragrance, while sticky honey draws the notes together with its rich, syrupy olfactory profile. Bitter oakmoss serves to cut through as the base notes reveal themselves, with spicy labdanum adding its intriguing personality to the scent, while a note of dry hay serves to conjure an image of scorched grass on the Bois de Boulogne amidst the oppressive heat at the peak of a Parisian summer.
