Podcast: Making smells for a living

Posted: Wed 7th Sep 2016

It's time for episode 17 of our podcast, the Small Business Sessions.

As a child Enterprise Nation member Marina Barcenilla distinctly remembers sniffing just about everything that passed her by so it's no surprise that she ended up as a perfumer!

Perfume Garden

She founded The Perfume Garden five years ago, which focuses on creating luxurious fragrances inspired by nature for a whole range of different products from perfumes to skin care to candles and home fragrances.

Perfume Garden 2Self taught and a big experimenter, The Perfume Garden has really blossomed in the last year with a recent run of awards but Marina is the first to admit that it has taken time and a lot of patience to get to this stage which is probably very reassuring for a lot of us to hear!

Marina is attending the Go Global trade missions to Amsterdam in September and New York in October. Find out more.
