Episode 37

46 minutes

This episode of Konfekt Korner explores themes of early spring and its sense of vernal opportunity. We spend four hours in a hotbox being rubbed with ashes and honey to report on Estonian sauna culture, hop on board a historic British Pullman to join the riotous Carriage Club and explore the world of perfumery at L’Oreal’s The Art & Science of Fragrance festival in Paris. Plus: we reflect on the power of owning your own look in the fashion set.

Our first stop today is in Võrumaa in southern Estonia, where we’ve arrived to learn more about the region’s ancient smoke-sauna ritual. Konfekt’s Petri Burtsoff is joined by the Estonian director Anna Hints, whose award-winning documentary, ‘Smoke Sauna Sisterhood’, explores the healing power of the sauna.

For many of us, there’s a certain kind of glamour and romance associated with a lengthy train ride. But nowhere is that more elevated than aboard Belmond’s historic British Pullman, the sister train to the Orient Express. And, from this year, it has a brand-new passenger experience in its arsenal: The Carriage Club, a cabaret on rails.
