Are you in the Manchester area & free during the day on May 6? Flash with Febreze want you to come along and create-your-own fragrance - plus get a £50 goodie bag

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 Manchester: 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! We have already run events like this in London and in Birmingham - an interesting day was had by all.

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 Manchester: Thursday 6 May

At a luxury hotel in the city centre near Piccadilly station

Between 11.15am to 2.00pm

Sandwich lunch will be provided and you'd need to be able to stay for the whole session.

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.

Please note: 6 May, as you probably know, is polling day which may mean your childs school is closed - please just bear this in mind if it's an issue for you

DD can stay home with her Dad and I might get chance to do some much needed clothes shopping afterwards.

MrsChemist Fri 30-Apr-10 08:39:41

I'm ridiculously excited as well grin
I was so tempted to go to the Birmingham one, but it was too impractical in the end.

suwoo Fri 30-Apr-10 09:03:59

It will be nice to meet with some like minded adults. We are blatantly all lacking excitement in our lives grin

MrsChemist Fri 30-Apr-10 11:22:19

But perfume is very exciting indeed. I've wanted to do something like this ever since I read Hannibal. blush

suwoo Fri 30-Apr-10 11:45:21

<<has read Hannibal but struggling to remember perfume bit>>

<<panics about forthcoming English degree>>

MrsChemist Fri 30-Apr-10 12:41:19

He sends Clarice a perfumed letter, and he designed the perfume for her personally.
