On this week’s episode, International Flavors & Fragrances Master Perfumer Steve Nicoll discusses a rarely seen side of the fragrance industry: scenting household products. He tells us how he creates popular home products, which aromas connote cleanliness, and why people like the smell of hot metal.
Before that: Jess reports on her favorite beauty moments from Japan, and we answer the question, "What's healthier: air-drying or blowdrying?"
