4160 Tuesdays

Meet me on the Corner Sample

  • This is a 2 ml spray sample. Find the full bottle here.  

    Retro in style, this summer citrus is both nostalgic yet fresh. Inspired by the 1970s song by Lindisfarne, McCartney updated it by about a half century, giving us a feel-good fragrance that captures the days when a date was just two people showing up to the same place at the same time- no texts, no swiping right, no GPS to get you there. Meet me on the Corner, is as carefree as it is airy, with tart citrus rinds of lemon and mandora (a hybrid of sweet orange & mandarin) play with the green floralcy of magnolia, its leaf and flower. Youthful and unisex with masculinity shining through in the drydown (wait for it); this timeless chypre- moss, patchouli and styrax blend is matured in bergamot, and surrounded by gentle musks. Think of this 1970-meets-2020 concept as a new Mini Cooper- all the fun of driving the original... now with working brakes and windshield wipers.


    Notes include lemon, mandora (a blend of sweet orange and mandarin), clementine, bergamot, magnolia, sandalwood, oakmoss, musk, patchouli and styrax.


  • We've met a lot of people in the perfume world, and Sarah McCartney of 4160 Tuesdays is one of our very favorites. Want to know why? Sarah, in her own words:

    "As a little girl, I did not make perfumes from rose petals. That was for softies. I made magic spells and wanted to be a witch when I grew up. When I was 16 I bought a bottle of Diorella. I studied maths and sciences, practised music and French, wrote books on brands and their evil twin—counterfeiting—and online marketing, and learned to dance Argentinean tango.

    "For 14 years I was the head writer for Lush while the company grew from four shops—one in Poole and three in London—to 700 worldwide. I was writing 50,000 words every three months for the Lush Times, aiming to encapsulate the products' scents in their descriptions. During that time, I bought and read 200 books on essential oils and herbalism and learned the essential oils the founders gave me to educate myself.

    "At the end of the 14 years, I took some time off to write a novel featuring a problem-solving perfumer. In it, I described the scents that she made and I wanted to have them available for people to smell. So I set off on a quest to see if I could buy them. This turned out to be impossible - and pretty expensive - because no one was making exactly what I wanted, so I started another quest to see of I could make them instead. Of course that turned out to be even more difficult, but once I'd started, I just kept going. 4160 Tuesdays perfumes is the result."
