The show, presented by Dan Snow, will begin on BBC2 on Tuesday evening, when you can experience first-hand (or nose) the world’s most glamourous cities, back when they weren’t so glamorous.
Writing in the Sun, Dan said: “Ever since our childhood, a waft of a smell can bring back memories and emotions. To be able to trigger that at home through a television show is very exciting.”
Among the smells of sewage, ‘Pong de Paris’ and an 18th Century Tannery, there’s also the, rather nice, whiff of Marie Antoinette’s perfume. Pick up a scratch-n-sniff card from your local library from today to smell-along with the show.
Forget 3D, it’s all about watching smell-o-vision these days!
