Filling the World With Perfume: podcast

Pia LongJust as I would never expect to win the Lotto (though it’s nice to dream about it), I certainly didn’t expect to become so involved in the perfumery business. Of course I hoped that something like this would happen one day and worked hard to make it happen, but being part of the Lush family and so busy with the Gorilla Perfume project with Mark and Simon has been exactly like winning the Lotto for me. I still can’t quite believe it.

I am delighted when I can help someone find the right fragrance for them; get someone to really become conscious of their sense of smell; to awaken them to the somewhat unappreciated art-form of perfumery. Not to mention how wonderful it is to learn about the actual raw materials and the secret formulas behind it all!

Esther from our Lush Media department has been working on an intimate series of podcast interviews, looking at different aspects of our business and interviewing people who are normally considered support staff for our senior co-founders and product creators. Today we’ve published “Filling the World With Perfume” – when Esther and I sat down and talked about the topic of perfume for a while. Have a listen!

  1. Hi, I listened to the podcast and just wanted to know some other books on perfumery that you would recommend? I’d be very interested in reading them 🙂

    Great interview!

  2. Hi Andrea – well, my favourite reads for the beginner-to-intermediate reader are: Perfumes, The A to Z Guide by Luca Turin and Tania Sanches, What The Nose Knows by Avery Gilbert, Perfume Legends: French Feminine Fragrances by Michael Edwards, Emperor of Scent by Chandler Burr and Fragrance, The Story of Perfume from Cleopatra to Chanel by Edwin T. Morris.
