This week we have to report that Essentially-Me perfumer, Alec Lawless, was featured on the BBC's new series about The Victorian Pharmacy (The link will take you to the relevant episode and is featured towards the end of the programme - Ref time 42:10. Essentially-Me have a shop in the Secret Arcade's 'Perfume & Beauty' passage which is well worth a visit after you have had a look at the BBC programme which is a tantalising view into the art of perfumery.
