Life in Scents is a podcast about smell. It’s an interview show where each time, our guest talks about the scents that have meant something to them through their life, whether everyday smells, fine fragrances or peculiar pecadillos.
Scissors and tape-measures at the ready for this episode Life in Scents, as tailor Timothy Everest MBE shares some of his favourite smells. For over two decades, Timothy has designed bespoke suits for prime-ministers, musicians and screen icons from his workshop in Spitalfields, East London – including costumes for the recent film adaptation of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. From the workplace smells of hot irons and chalk to his impressive wardrobe of fragrances, and the patchouli wafts of his time training with Timmy Nutter (outfitter to the Beatles and the Rolling Stones) Timothy brings to life the olfactory world of the sartorialist, whether the perfect cologne, or the scent of a good tweed.
