Perfume on the Radio explores the world through the nose, with a radio show and podcast devoted to humanity’s deep cultural connections with smell.
Each episode tackles a new topic, examining cultural associations through interviews, community reports and historical insight. Our international guests include perfumers, academics, aficionados, and artists, among other fascinating people.
Join the Institute for Art and Olfaction team and friends on the third Thursday of every month at 5pm PT on Lookout FM. Not in LA? Not to worry! Episodes are archived on this website and at a preferred podcast provider near you.

Founded in September 2012 in Los Angeles, The Institute for Art and Olfaction is a 501(c)3 non-profit devoted to advancing public access to the practice of working with scent. We do this by initiating and supporting experimental projects with scent, by providing accessible education in our experimental laboratory as well as in partnership with institutions and community groups, and by raising visibility for independent, artisan and experimental perfumery as a whole. Through these efforts, we extend the world of scent beyond its traditional boundaries of appreciation and use.
