Perfumes and Pages: Literary perfumes with Alex Musgrave

December 5, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Come along to Golden Hare Books for a festive evening of perfumes and pages!

Listen to perfume expert Alex Musgrave talk through his favourite literary perfumes, and the books which inspired them.

There will be an opportunity to smell the perfumes, and to buy the books which inspired them, as well as a range of beautiful books about scent.

This is the perfect event to get you into the festive spirit – so come along for a glamorous evening of scents, have a drink, and step into the world of literary perfumes.







Alex Musgrave: I am fascinated by the emotional intersections between scent, skin and word. My writing and photography are motivated by a need to understand the allure of odour and chromatics in the dual environments of artisanal perfumery and flora.

I work as freelance storytelling consultant for brands like Miller Harris London and Mendittorosa Odori D’Anima, creating digital content for Instagram and webpages.

My writing work has been published in Rakesprogress Magazine and ODOU Magazine and online with REEK Perfume, Miller Harris London, Stepaway Magazine and the influential US blog Cafleurebon. My photographs have been used by Miller Harris, Mendittorosa Odori D’Anima and appeared in the Sunday Times and Icon Magazine.
