At In Fiore, we believe the skin is a sense organ and scent initiates healing. Olfactory Nostalgia is a look at medicinal triggers, scented memories, and the feelings that ensue when taking in a distinct ingredient.
Meet Jade Iovine, the Los Angeles-based Tell Me About It podcast host. She dives deep with her guests (Gwen Stefani and Bozoma Saint John, to name a few) about mental health challenges, mistakes, and shame spirals. Her interviews feel like tête-à-tête between close friends and make you want to join in on the vulnerable conversation.
“Scents have a way of teleporting you.”

What & Where:
Podcast Host: Tell Me About It with Jade Iovine
Rose reminds me of coming home from school on a Friday afternoon and walking through my front door with a pile of other kids. Joining my siblings and their friends in the pool, family dinners, and sounds of kids running up and down the stairs. My parents burned Baies by Diptyque constantly when I was growing up. When my friends smell that candle, they say it reminds them of me and it reminds me of home. It gives me an instant feeling of security, belonging, love, and chaos (the good kind).
Perfumery as Medicine:
Scents have a way of teleporting you. They can remind you of people, places, and things like nothing else. I use perfumes and candles as tools to ease my anxiety and depression or just a bad day. Whether it's rubbing an essential oil in my palms and breathing in, burning a candle that reminds me of home, Christmas, or spraying the perfume I wore when I first started dating my boyfriend, scents can change my mood and give me peace.
