Our Modern Lives is a fragrance project by Sarah McCartney of 4160 Tuesdays. So what it is? Well, it’s a line of 7 natural botanical-based fragrances and 2 “gentle” synthetics. What I like about it, is that it’s not born out of some marketing scheme disguised as some moralistic “chemicals are bad” propaganda. It’s from demand. Customers wanted naturals and “hypo-allergenic” fragrances so she created a line for them without confusing it with her established, mixed medium 4160 Tuesdays brand.

4160 Tuesdays Pillow Talk was initially reserved for scent marketing for a hotel (well, rumor has it) but according to the press release, this fell through (anyone that’s self-employed or a contractor, can relate, I’m sure).

Sometimes I notice a lime peel, other times it’s a grapefruit zest, then freshly squeezed lemon juice…you get the point. It’s all the citrus. As it… Continue reading | 2 Comments
I have no idea what has happened to me this winter. But, something has happened. Last week, I confessed that I’ve enjoyed wearing a sheer, wispy black currant perfume, Viktoria Minay Hedonist Cassis. And today I’m confessing my love for another fruity-floral perfume, 4160 Tuesdays Goddess of Love & Perfume. Now, this one is very different than the Viktoria Minya one. Goddess of Love is a dense, jammy fruity-floral. There’s nothing sheer about it. The surprise for me, is what are the… Continue reading | 6 Comments
