Now to Somerset house and something that will appeal


Scented installations are showcasing the perfume


Of course, it's going to be difficult to convey the essence


of this exhibition - smell-ovision hasn't


But we've sent Wendy Hurrell to try...


Challenge accepted. Easy at first because you probably know these


ones. The rest of the exhibition is ten mysterious modern perfumes and


it's left to you to describe what they smell of. I think maybe like my


dad after he's been working on the allotment. With the herbs. Roadworks


and stuff like that. Yes, individual knows will come up with wildly


different interpretations. Could be close, I'm not really sure. It's


luxury. Making me think of orchards, something soapy as well. Soapy


orchards? Indeed. Once you've had a good sniff you can write down your


thoughts on one of these cards and compare them to do. Real beach


fragrance repealed later. Picking out the particular note is harder


than you might imagine. I don't think I've got the nose that you are


supposed to have. Some throw you off the scent completely. Kids toys, it


actually smells like plastic toys. My grannies house. Well actually


this sent by a bad boy on the perfumery block... Notes on a mill


Julie, dirty, like the scent of pyrotechnics in the air from like,


fog machines, there is a bit of a smokiness to it. An unconventional


concoction but connoisseurs are impressed by his creations, not to


mention his attire. You've totally out blink me. That's always the


goal. I like to out blink everyone. At the end of the exhibition is a


place where you can find out her perfume is made, the individual


ingredients that go into it and the ladies in lab coats are perfumers


and they explain how you'd make a cent out of these ingredients.


Perfume is personal, not everything will be to your liking. But you can


have a sniff at Somerset house until mid-September. Still wondering about


the roadworks. Now the weather with


Georgina Burnett. Best to make the most of any


sunshine throughout them -- throughout the afternoon, it will be


different for the next few days. This was captured by one of our


weather Watchers, beautiful picture of flowers basking in the sunshine,


we'll see more of that this afternoon, the sunshine baby hazy at


times, light breeze, temperatures reaching the mid-20s. Heading


through this evening we see cloud all doing through the night, feeling


quite humid as well, mostly dry but come the early hours, some showers


coming through. Temperatures rise getting down to 14 or 15 degrees,


tomorrow the temperatures down but probably feeling pretty muggy all


the same, quite a lot of cloud around, brightness confined to first


thing. Some showers and prolonged outbreaks of rain, quite heavy at


times, perhaps even thundery, temperatures subdued, were likely to


see the teams, we may scrape 20 tomorrow. Wednesday deeply have a


fair bit of wet weather in the morning, looking like it will dry up


later in the day, some showers around on Thursday, northerly wind


picking up towards the end of the day, staying with us for Friday. It


should be drier and brighter on Friday, a handful of showers around,


feeling pretty chilly with that win. Slightly better on Saturday, back to


wet and windy weather on Sunday. Riz Lateef will be here


with our 6:30 evening programme. But for now, from us all,


a very good afternoon.
