There have been many studies about how and why fragrance affects memory. Suffice it to say the perfumer as artist can serve as a kind of midwife to the mysteries of long forgotten stories, dreams and memories. Sarah McCartney, writer and perfumer (for her own brand 4160 Tuesdays, for her collaborations such as Urban Reivers Damn Rebel Bitches and her lastest for Zoologist Perfumes, Macaque) is a master storyteller in both words and fragrance. Her latest perfume project, "a collection within a collection", The Four Mysteries, is a set of four fragrances each paired with a short mystery story set in England in 1933. Her book, Four Fragrant Mysteries, is now available in paperback
