Mandy Aftel Author

We have had a wonderful relationship with Mandy for a long time, and are very proud to be the only retail store that carries her Cacao Perfume and Chocolate Saffron Body Oil. This is a special opportunity to meet Mandy in person. Though she is very active online and on social media, Mandy is making very few public appearances so please take advantage of this special visit!FRAGRANT KIT

In addition to the Aftelier Perfumes items we normally have (cacao perfume, chocolate saffron body oil, cacao absolute, and chef’s essence kits for the chocolatier) Mandy will be bringing the Fragrant Companion Kits which are a really cool way to meet the 5 main characters in the book: Ambergris, Cinnamon, Spearmint, Jasmine, and Frankincense. These kits will only be available while Mandy is visiting…

We think Mandy’s new book Fragrant: The Secret Life of Scent is wonderful.

But don’t just take our word for it.  Fragrant has been praised by a wide range of people including Alice Waters, Alice Walker, Harold McGee, The New York Times, Michael Pollan, and Vogue Magazine.  If you want to read more about  Fragrant and Mandy there are some reviews here.  Buy a copy from us or bring your own.  Special thanks to Donna Hathaway for including this event in her review of Fragrant!
