Life in Scents is a podcast about smell. It’s an interview show where each time, our guest talks about the scents that have meant something to them through their life, whether everyday smells, fine fragrances or peculiar pecadillos. Bonfires, arm pits, swimming pools, Shalimar, the subway or a club at 3 am, if it’s got an odour, it’s got a story.

What a great idea!
I am a big fan of Desert Island Discs and I love perfume - a superb combination of the two. If only I could smell all the wonderful memories... Can't wait for the next one!
Lovely arts podcast
Nice twist on the interview show, with the guest talking about smells. Makes you realise how poignant and vital this sense is. Look forward to hearing more.
V. interesting podcast
Like most good things this left me wondering why no-one had ever thought to do this before. I've added this to my very small and selective podcast list because it's quirky, interesting and quite meditative listening. More please.
