In this week’s episode of the Fume Chat podcast, we discuss the fragrance families and ask themselves whether terms like “fougère” and “chypre” are fit for purpose in this day and age. Do they mean anything to consumers? do they represent they way fragrances smell? Are terms like “oriental” offensive? Listen and you’ll find out!

How sustainable is your perfume? On this week’s episode, Thomas and Nick talk about how our fragrances can be renewable, recyclable and refillable, covering how the fragrance industry is trying to make itself more sustainable for the future.

As always, there is a round-up of new and noteworthy fragrances including launches from Paco Rabanne and Juliette Has a Gun.

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.

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!
