Breaking Beauty Podcast

Aug 3, 2022

With 2.8 billion #PerfumeTikTok views and counting, we’re reviewing the hottest fragrances right now alongside Emma Vernon, host of The Perfume Room podcast. Emma is a comic and former matchmaker-turned-fragrance expert who’s been featured in The New York Times, New York Post and InStyle. Today, she’s bringing her encyclopedic fragrance knowledge to help assess which viral perfumes are legitimately #DamnGood – and which ones smell like burnt tires and cotton candy.


From Maison Francis Kurkdjian’s ubiquitous Baccarat Rouge 540 to Ariana Grande’s Cloud to the influencer scent that spurred a 100,000 person waitlist and the one department store scent she believes is worth the hype, Emma isn’t pulling any perfume punches. Plus, Emma reveals her fave budget-friendly find (pssst, now back in stock!), the BIPOC-owned fragrances you need on your radar and the modern bridal scent you did not see coming.


*Be sure to catch us over on Perfume Room podcast this week, where we reveal the top fragrances that beauty editors hoard, our personal holy grails, our wildest press trips ever and more of our scent diary secrets.*
