13 – Libertine Fragrance w. Josh Smith

Our lovely guest for this episode is modern day alchemist Josh Smith; the man behind Libertine Fragrance. He’s here to tell us all about his journey into the smell game and his resulting brand, which he accurately describes as “fragrance for sensual enjoyment.”

Josh lays out how he gets from an idea, to a candle-lit laboratory filled with small bottles of smelly things, and then to a crafted & packaged product made for those who’d like a little bit of heart to their scent. So if you’ve ever wanted to learn about the invisible art of smells, the tension between artistry & branding, or that there are worse perfume ingredients than cat butt gland, then this is the episode for you!

Please go visit Josh’s site https://www.libertine-fragrance.com/ in order to smell as wonderfully as I personally do – probably even better, as I only have 1 perfume, so you should probably get at least 2. Also check out Mr. Smith’s Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/libertine_fragrance/) if you’d like something a more saucy.
