It’s Friday which means a new episode of Fume Chat is available! This week we’re talking about novel accords. These are the accords that say something new or interesting and subvert our expectations. They range from the weird to the beautiful, and all that’s in-between.
It’s Friday, which means it’s time for another episode of Fume Chat – the perfume podcasted hosted by The Candy Perfume Boy and Nick Gilbert. Episode 3 is all about bergamot. You see, at Fume Chat, we really love bergamot, it’s true. But what is it? How is it used in perfumery? And why is it so prolific in the perfumes we smell? Find out all of the answers to these questions and to many questions you’d not even asked in our latest episode. Oh and we also sniff some of our fave bergamot scents too!
