Ep 181: Confessions of a Perfumer with Stephen Nilsen of Givaudan

What's a "white floral" versus a "springtime floral"? Which molecule smells like toasted almonds? What is a "naturally derived" scent? Stephen Nilsen has all the answers! The Givaudan perfumer, who's created many fragrances you know (Madonna's Truth or Dare, Bond No. 9 Union Square, Vera Wang Lovestruck) is here to explain how perfumes are created. Before that, we have help for itchy skin (listen up, moms-to-be!), discuss wild-crafting in beauty, and share our favorite New York City beauty spots.
