An Evening with Perfumer Mark Buxton

!!!!!THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT !!!!! Perfume Lovers London is proud to announce that Berlin-based perfumer Mark Buxton will be coming especially for this evening.
Half German, half British, there might even be a part of him that’s from outer space, for Mark Buxton is a perfumer who likes to think differently! Whether it’s for Comme des Garçons, or his own line (which includes Sleeping with Ghosts, Sexual Healing, Devil in Disguise, Wood & Absinthe and Black Angel), Mark’s perfumes are full of surprises. Thoughtful, engaging, and just a touch anarchic, this evening is a chance to smell a variety of perfumes by Mark and learn about what inspires him.


Tickets are non refundable and include refreshments on arrival.

Where possible, we provide one sample of a fragrance.

    Possibly the most interesting I have attended so far. Learning about the background to a fragrance builds the experience forme. Hearing about the materials used in the perfume allow me to more fully appreciate the fragrance as well as explore the depth of the story behind it. Mark is most interesting, entertaining and above all, generous with his knowledge.

    A thoroughly enjoyable evening. I learned so much about Mark - I don't know if I dare wear Sleeping with Ghosts now, it'd be like slipping into the sheets beside him!

    I loved this evening with Mark Buxton! Im curious if he made any accords about this evening.

    Mark is a true wizard and a lover of all things beautiful.

    I enjoyed the evening and found that understanding the inspiration behind a fragrance enhances my enjoyment of it further. I was particularly impressed by the abstract bend to many of Mark's fragrances, such as the subtle phantom like notes of 'Sleeping with Ghosts'!

    It was refreshing to meet an artist so intoxicated by their craft, yet at the same time humble and very candid.

    Really enjoyed talking to Mark and hearing how he fell into becoming a perfumer as well as how he makes accords, almost like postcards of places he's been to.

    This event exceeded my expectation. Mark was inspirational with a touch of cheekiness and the event was very well organised which made it fun. Thanks Lila and Grant for such a successful night

    Great fun! Mark was a wonderful speaker. I must admit I hadn't tried his fragrances before, but I'm a convert.

    Totally amazing. Mark is brilliant, so inspiring, knowledgable and creative. What a generous and lively spirit he is. Thank you Lila, Grant, the Basenotes crew and everyone else who I had the pleasure to speak to. Feels like the perfume scene is in such a creative place right now. Looking forward to more of the same.

      Completely agree. Great things happen when you're willing and able to take the creative risks that Mark does. I look forward to seeing more from him and from lesser known independents.

    Amazing night, he was so well spoke and engaging. Looking forward to buying another of his older creation and a new one. Shame it had to be on a night I had another engagement right afterwards.

    Mark was open honest and to the point. Fascinating conversation and an interesting character! Great range of perfumes that show off his abilities as a creative perfumer. Thanks to Mark and Lila and to the group for an enjoyable evening.
