We've had Mumsnetters at events for Flash with Febreze in:London, Birmingham and Manchester and now Flash has reached Bristol.

The guys at Flash have just launched a new Flash with Febreze range of cleaners and, when they were developing the product, the boffins there learnt from the teams behind some of the world's best-selling designer fragrances, to tap in to their perfume-making expertise. This resulted in a cleaner which (for once) has a nice smell, leaving your room smelling fresher and cleaner for longer.

Again, they would like to offer Mumsnetters an insight into fragrance - this time in Bristol: how they can be made to last longer, the components of a fragrance and how different smells work. Don't worry they are talking about real perfume not eau du kitchen cleaner!

At the event, a smell expert will give a talk about perfume and you will be able to create and take home your very own fragrance.
Everyone who is selected and attends an event will receive not only their own fragrance but also a goodie bag of domestic cleaning products & other goodies worth £50.
All we ask is that after the event you try the products in the goodie bag and then add feedback to a thread on Mumsnet.

~ The event is in Bristol: Tuesday 19th May
~ At a luxury hotel in the city centre
~ Between 11.15am and 2.00pm - you'd need to be able to stay for the whole session
~ Sandwich lunch will be provided.
~ Travel expenses (up to £25) would be paid.
~ Creche facilities will be provided by Flash using a specialist company but we MUST know exact numbers and ages of children and any dietary requirements they may have before the day - please indicate below if you are likely to bring a child - and if you are selected we will confirm exact details nearer the time.

Please complete this form if you'd like to attend the event.

Many thanks

Would breastfeeding 11wk old DD be compatible with attending this event? She is feeding at least every 2 hrs at the moment.

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 06-May-10 23:05:09

gingerkirsty - it's up to you...babies are welcome and the creche people will bring her to you when she needs a feed - will be full of fragrance though!

swissmiss Thu 06-May-10 23:19:25

Will there be a charge for using the creche?

sarah293 Fri 07-May-10 08:10:14

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 07-May-10 08:14:51

bratnav Fri 07-May-10 09:17:35

Me too

M32song Fri 07-May-10 11:13:16

ooo and me grin

suwoo Fri 07-May-10 14:01:09

gingerkirsty, I just attended the Manchester one yesterday and I am not sure that it would be compatible with bf. The room absolutely stinks of perfume and a lot of us experienced headaches. My DC were in the creche, which was fabulous and they still somehow reeked of the perfume. Obviously its up to you, but thought I should share that with you.

mjinhiding Fri 07-May-10 14:16:41

addictedisinthesecondtrimester Fri 07-May-10 15:38:24

sarah293 Fri 07-May-10 16:00:51

wannaBe Fri 07-May-10 16:02:04

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 07-May-10 16:48:38

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 07-May-10 16:57:50

addictedisinthesecondtrimester Sun 09-May-10 14:35:15

FreakoidOrganisoid Sun 09-May-10 17:31:58

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Sun 09-May-10 19:29:16
