It’s battle time once again and in this episode, Thomas and Nick are joined by guest judge Nigel Dunckley (Thomas’ lovely yet long-suffering husband) in a fragrant fight of their favourite Eau de Colognes.
What is an Eau de Cologne? What fragrances do Thomas and Nick choose? Who is victorious? Will Thomas and Nigel still be married by the end of the episode? All this (and more) is answered in Fume Chat: Attack of the Colognes.
Fume Chat is back! To celebrate the launch of Season Two, hosts Thomas and Nick are chatting about their perfume origin stories – how they got into this little thing called fragrance. As always, exciting new things are sniffed too!
Episode 27 of Fume Chat is ready to download! In ‘Best of British’, Nick and I sniff some exciting new launches from equally exciting British brands. You can listen and subscribe on iTunes OR alternatively, you can listen online.
In our latest episode of Fume Chat (the perfume podcast) we’re getting down and dirty with a battle of filthy (dirty, animalic, pungent, beastly, carnal, disgusting) fragrances. If you’re not familiar with our battle episodes, the format is simple: Nick and I pick three (or four) fragrances on a theme and then sniff them together in the episode. A guest judge determines who has picked the best selection of scents and is therefore, the victorious winner of the battle. It’s simple and a ton of fun too!
Fume Chat’s back, that’s who! Nick and I took a little break from Fume Chat over the summer months but now our summer hiatus is finally over and we are back with a brand new episode. For Episode 21 we’re sniffing some of September’s biggest launches, including much-anticipated scents from CHANEL and Jean-Paul Gaultier, and much, much more!
Apologies for a little bit of radio silence over the last two weeks. I’ve been busy with work and other things so posts have been a little bit on the sporadic side. Fear ye not though, there’s a lot of interesting content coming your way over the coming weeks, with reviews of big launches, some nice in-depth articles and of course, vlogs! In fact, you’ll have a brand new vlog to enjoy tomorrow, so do look forward to that. In the meantime you can listen to the latest episode of Fume Chat!
In episode 20, Killian Wells the American perfumer behind cult brand Xyrena heads into the Fume Chat studio for an exclusive interview. Killian was in town for the Perfume exhibition at Somerset House, so we chatted to him about his involvement with the installation, specifically focusing on Dark Ride, his scent that was featured, whilst also grilling him about the many RuPaul’s Drag Race alumni his has created scents for. It made for quite the conversation as I’m sure you’ll agree!
It’s Fume Chat, it’s Fume Chat, here we go! That’s right, folks, a brand new episode of Fume Chat is ready for you to download and enjoy. Our latest is a companion episode to Episode 16 (Molecule Mania) and this time we’re talking about the positives and negatives of natural perfumery. What makes it so tricky and why can natural perfumes sometimes come off smelling a little bit flat? And why do Nick and I find it a bit ‘meh’ overall? Find out in this latest episode of Fume Chat, in which we will sniff some fabulous natural stuff.
We’re back again with another battle of the bottles and this time the theme is one close to Thomas’ & Nick’s heart: roses. That’s right, we’re battling our favourite rose perfumes with a wonderful selection of rosy goodness. Our judge this week is the iconic Josephine Fairley, journalist and co-founder of The Perfume Society, who moderates the battle with panache and brings her own rather surprising rose perfume to the table. So put on your rose-tinted specs and get ready for The War of the Roses!
