    10. Do Your Big 3 Determine Your Perfume Tastes? (w/ TikTok's Professor Perfume Emelia O'Toole)

    In this episode, I am joined by fellow Perfume TikTokr Emelia O'Toole (@ProfessorPerfume)! Emelia and I try to guess each other's big 3 astrological signs (we're both wrong, lol), and then get into a deep discussion of how much our scent tastes are correlated to our astrological signs & Myers Briggs types. We give each other some new recs, talk about the scents that changed our lives, discuss how our tastes have evolved over time, and overall, I listen in awe as Emelia tells me her life story (which may or may not have been written by Sally Rooney).

    09. What Makes a Fragrance 'Easy-to-Wear?' (w/ by Rosie Jane's Rosie Jane!)

    09. What Makes a Fragrance 'Easy-to-Wear?' (w/ by Rosie Jane's Rosie Jane!)

    In this episode, I chat with Rosie Johnston (aka the Rosie behind by/ Rosie Jane)! We divulge our mutual love of white musk and chat about the inspiration behind each of the seven frags in her line, as well as some of her inspiration for future scents. We also discuss the smells of Rosie's childhood in Australia, what it really means to be a "clean fragrance", and of course, because I have zero self-control, I show Rosie my Aussie accent.

    08. A CBD-Infused Fragrance?! (w/ Aspen Apothecary Co-Founder Keta Burke-Williams)

    08. A CBD-Infused Fragrance?! (w/ Aspen Apothecary Co-Founder Keta Burke-Williams)

    Aspen Apothecary is a brand new indie perfume line that combines fragrance and function. How? Because their scents are not only clean, vegan, and sustainable; they are CBD-INFUSED. The founders say it won’t make you high, but I beg to differ ;) (jk, lol). But for real, their fragrances are not only amazing-smelling, but super calming, and thus, we love.



    In this episode, I chat with Co-Founder Keta Burke-Williams about her and her sister Kaja’s inspiration, motivation, the process behind creating Aspen Apothecary, the role of CBD in their fragrances, and their advice for anyone who wants to follow in their footsteps. And you know we got Perfume Room listeners that exclusive discount code.

    07. Smell then Tell (w/ Iron Chef Alex Guarnaschelli)

    In this episode, we are joined by Iron Chef Alex Guarnaschelli (!!!). In addition to being an Iron Chef, a judge on Chopped, the host of Supermarket Stakeout, and the Executive Chef of Butter, Alex is also an avid perfume lover. Alex reveals the fragrance she buys in bulk, the one she can't stand, her favorite smells, strongest scent memories, her philosophy of ‘smell THEN tell’, and how her experience as a chef has influenced how she experiences fragrance. Alex's scent descriptions are the ASMR you didn't know you needed. I also give my top 10 scents of the month, and for the Perfume 101, I explain what animalic scents are.

    06. Do You Condition Your Hair *Everywhere*? (w/ Fur Co-Founders Laura Schubert and Lillian Tung)

    In this episode, I chat with Fur Co-Founders and lifelong BFFs Laura Schubert and Lillian Tung. Fur is a hair grooming company that caters to every part of the body, for every body (& every haircare routine). We chat about stigmas and media narratives surrounding how private parts should look and smell, our own trials and tribulations surrounding pubic hair grooming and aftercare, and how Fur is challenging the status quo.

    We also discuss Fur’s origins and evolution, the very intentional scents of Fur products, and Laura and Lillian’s dynamic as best friend co-founders.

    05. A Live Perfume Consult (w/ TikTok Comedian Jake Cornell)

    In this episode, I help comedian, actor, and TikTok superstar Jake Cornell find his new signature scent. Jake was Perfume Room’s first-ever IRL guest(!), so we had the pleasure of testing out 15 different contenders (and giving our unfiltered thoughts about each of them) IRL. If you enjoy how I describe fragrance, wait till you hear Jake. In Perfume 101, I explain the difference between 'clean' versus 'natural' fragrances. And duh, at the end of the episode, Jake walks away with a new signature scent!

So fun to listen to

This is such a fun listen (and I learn something every episode/have bought a ton of new perfumes as a result). Also Emma is the best host and asks the best questions

Where has she been all my life

Emma is the perfect combo of my two favorite traits: funny and fragrance-obsessed. She is impossible to stop listening to- and watching on Tik Tok. So happy to have found this podcast. Keep it up, Emma!
