Persolaise On ABC Radio Australia With Michael Pavlich + Next Episode Of Love At First Scent

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Michael Pavlich on his Overnights programme on Australia's ABC Radio. The segment is now available online, so if you'd like to listen to it, please click here. It covers a range of topics, from the history of perfumery to the high price tags of modern scents. And we even had time to take some questions from callers!


The next episode of my Love At First Scent series will be on Facebook Live on Friday 7th September at 4:00 pm UK time (11:00 am New York time). I hope you'll be able to tune in.



  1. Great interview. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
    I wonder if the sandalwood used in Santal Massoia is the same as used in Twilly. In SM it's more figgy/creamy while in Twilly it's more coconutty/creamy. And then there's Tuberose which can be quite figgy and coconutty. So all these ingredients share similar nuances.
    Is Javenol also looked down upon by perfumers? I felt it was pretty decent in Molecule 04.

    1. Raza, thanks for taking the time to write.

      I'm afraid I don't know the details about the sandalwoods in the two Hermes scents. As far as Javanol is concerned, yes, it is frowned upon by some perfumers, but then there are many others who find it useful and interesting. It's quite a commonly-found material in perfumery.
