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.

Life in Scents: Richard Wentworth

Life in Scents, Vol. 13 by London Fields Radio on Mixcloud

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.

Richard Wentworth has been a major player in New British Sculpture for over thirty years. His work often focuses on the idea of objects and questions our understanding of them within the context of our daily lives. In this episode of life in Scents he talks to Jo Barratt about his relationship with smell. Chemical, glue and workshop smells sit alongside a consideration of how we think about and relate smell in a wider sense. As well as many other things Richard muses on the meaning that humans ascribe to that moment after a thunderstorm and how ideas of ‘clean’ or ‘dirty’ relate to how we see ourselves within the world, as well as his hatred of perfumed candle shops.

Life in Scents: Night Works

Life in Scents, Vol. 14 by London Fields Radio on Mixcloud

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. Life in Scents is hosted by smell-obsessed radio producer Jo Barratt and by Odette Toilette, founder of Scratch+Sniff events.

In this episode of Life in Scents Jo Barratt speaks to Gabriel Stebbing, the man otherwise known as Night Works, ahead of the release of his debut album Urban Heat Island. Gabriel recalls the cooking smells growing up in the homes of his respective parents. We hear of Lynx Africa (Axe to International listeners) in suburban changing rooms and how he came across fine fragrance dispensed for free in the streets of Paris as a teenager. He also talks about his creative process and the background to the album which comes from the melting pot of bankers, young creatives and old communities dancing together on the brink of apocalypse in East London.
