Fume Chat is the only podcast solely dedicated to the world of fragrance. Hosted by Fragrance Expert & Consultant, Nick Gilbert and Blogger & Writer, Thomas Dunckley, Fume Chat is a weekly podcast that approaches smell and perfume from a unique perspective. Our mission at Fume Chat is to make fragrance entertaining, informative and fun. Let's face it, it's just perfume, so why take it so seriously? We'll be bringing you our favourite new scents as well as battling it out to see who has better taste, not to mention discussion topics, interviews and special guests. All on Fume Chat every Friday. We look forward to sniffing along with you.

We launched a candle brand. That's right, your eyes aren't deceiving you, we have actually launched a candle brand. In this episode we are joined by perfumer and Olfiction co-founder to discuss Boujee Bougies, the brand new, flamboyant and fancy candle brand from Olfiction. Did we mention that we launched a candle brand? Oh, we did? Anyway, we chat the origin of the brand and each of the fragrance concepts. Join us, if you're boujee enough...
This week a slightly delirious Thomas and Nick talk through some wonderfully smoky fragrances that are perfect for the autumn/winter seasons. Oh and they smell some materials that add a touch of smoke. It's basically an episode about smoke.

Bon Anniversaire, Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle!
Iconic, game changing, history making, and totally awesome luxury perfume brand Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle is celebrating its 20th birthday this year. We're big a fan of the brand here at Fume Chat so we thought we'd gatecrash the party and say "bon anniversaire" by chatting all things Frédéric Malle and of course, sniffing some of our favourites:
Le Parfum de Thérése
Une Fleur de Cassie
Dans tes Bras
Geranium Pour Monsieur
Portrait of a Lady
Dries van Noten
Eau de Magn
So informative, interesting and amusing. This is laced through with wit and humour but also true expertise. I love learning g about the technical aspects behind perfumes. This is a must listen and I hope that Nick and Thomas return soon.
Is there anything better then having a luxurious bubble bath , laying back and listening to Thomas and Nick!
In a word no! . Could listen to them for hours!❤️
Here we go!
So thrilled Nick & Thomas are back for another series of Fume Chat. They’re just the most wonderful hosts - that enviable balance of great knowledge with oodles of humour. This is fun, fully accessible for anyone interested in fragrance, and I always learn something new as well.
