Book Launch At L'Artisan Parfumeur + Signing At The End Of November

In today's uncharacteristically visual post, I've attempted to give you a flavour of a launch party that was held for my book last Thursday night at L'Artisan Parfumeur's Covent Garden boutique. Sadly, we didn't have any professional photographers on hand to overcome the problems posed by the tricky lighting, but hopefully these snapshots will give you some sense of what the event was like. From my perspective, it was a joy from start to finish, and I'd like to thank the following people for making it such a success:

Diana, Lisa, Nais, Amrik and George at L'Artisan Parfumeur, for offering the use of their beautiful shop without making one single demand or stipulation, and for being consummate hosts. 

The folks from Hardie Grant, for their contribution and for selling books on the night.

Grant Osborne of Basenotes, for supplying us all with a selection of wonderful Laduree macarons.

My nieces, Claire and Maria, for their hard work, both before and during the event.

Madame Persolaise, for her superb cupcakes and for her endless patience and encouragement.

And finally, all the guests, for coming along to show their support.

Before I hand you over to the pictures, I should just mention that I'll be holding a signing session at Angela Flanders' new boutique on Thursday 29th November. Booking is essential, so please click here for more info.



  1. Looks like everyone had a really good time.angie cox

  2. Madame Persolaises cupcakes look really yummy. I would have liked one of those. ;-)

  3. Oh no why did I not know about this! :(

    1. Joshuaang, I'm afraid it was an 'invitation only' event, partly because of the size of the venue. But I'm doing a book signing at Angela Flanders' new shop, so perhaps you could come along to that? (Details in post above.)
