Tynan Sinks and Sable Yong — friends, beauty editors, award-winning fragrance writers (some of us), and scent fiends — are giving the world the podcast no one asked for.
Smell Ya Later explores every imaginable angle at which we interact with the aromas and odors in our lives, the scents that have seared themselves into our memory, and scents that inform the way we envision our future. That includes everything from fine fragrance to candles to dish soap.

We've Had Enough Of This Scent-less Violence
Added fragrance in beauty products gets a bad rep these days. But given the likelihood that most products "don't work" anyway, may we at least reap some sensorial joy out of greasing up our slowly deteriorating mortal vessels with our little creams and potions, please? If you can slather it, we've smelled it, and this episode contains our favorite non-fragrance fragranced products.
The Extreme Intense Pleasure Paradox
We've been noticing a perfume pattern that suggests a move towards indulgence, intensity, and the extreme. What could it mean? Listen to us trying to figure it out for nearly the time commitment of a feature-length film.
Reinventing The Wheel With Cloud
In honor of Ariana Grande's Cloud 2.0 Intense launching into the world, we were moved to reinvent the fragrance wheel to include a whole new scent profile called...Cloud (duh).
The First Maybe Annual Smell Ya Later Awards
It's been one full gregorian year of this podcast, and to tolerate it, we are hosting our very first awards ceremony.
The Perfume Most Likely To Be Seen In A Wes Anderson Film
Both of your hosts promise to stop co-opting the intros of these episodes to spiral about personal struggles... but before that happens we have Sweden's newest hot boi of scent, Jan Vilhelm Ahlgren, as a guest on this episode to discuss the imaginative collection of fragrances he's created to encapsulate parallel universes and figures in scent form for his very luxuriously anachronistic fragrance line, Vilhelm Parfumerie.
Smell This Simulation
The simulation we're living in is about to get way more Inception-y, now that virtual reality olfaction is here and happening. In this episode, we explore how scent can be used to create life-like experiences for better experiences of real life.
Wonderful, informative podcast. Highly recommend
i love this pod so much!!!!! just discovered yesterday so happy i did. love both hosts and their fabulous chemistry. so many scents added to my fragrantica wishlist (so many dollars out of bank acct). thank you! ❤️
Thank you Sable
I'm obsessed with fragrance and enjoy the pod! The 5 stars, however, are for Sable saying in ep 48 about Kim K "I just don't think they're that interesting, I literally can't think of anything I want to ask Kim K." YES THANK YOU! Lol
I'd love if you could score more interviews with brand founders and perfumers. I can get enough of hearing people like Frederic Malle or Francis Kurkdjian talk about fragrance, for example.
