Niche fragrances, author, indie … Haute couture perfume that tells stories with unique aromas.
If we want to explain in a few words what niche perfumes are, we could define them as unconventional and high quality fragrances, created around a unique creative concept.
They are called “niche” because they occupy a small space in the market, and they are distributed in carefully chosen places: unique spaces that offer personalized and close treatment, to create a memorable shopping experience.
When they arise. The booming trend of the 21st century.
Author fragrances emerge at the beginning of this century in France and Italy to become a trend that is conquering more and more people around the world.
"The Nose", creators of fragrances.
These olfactory poems are created with quality ingredients, by the most recognized noses. Nose is the name that the fragrance creators receive, and behind each great perfume, there is an “alchemist” that combines exquisite aromas transforming them into perfumes.
Jean-Claude Ellena, the great perfectionist
If we talk about perfumes, we cannot fail to name the great Jean-Claude Ellena. Born in Grasse in a family of perfumers, he specializes in luxury brands and was the first nose of Hermès. He is the author of such emblematic perfumes as Terre d'Hermès or In Love Again for Yves Saint Laurent.
What are the characteristics of author perfumes?
- · High quality raw materials
- · Original vision that excites and stimulates
- · The value of the artisan
- · Selective distribution
The primary difference between niche perfumes and conventional perfumes is found in the concept behind the brand. An author's perfume seeks to evoke a sensation, a memory, a mood ... it is an artistic expression. They also have no gender, they are unisex.
The price of niche perfumes depends largely on the quality of the ingredients used, and on their commercial distribution. Being a minority product, it is logical that its costs are higher, but it is possible to find author fragrances with prices similar to the most commercial perfumes. In general, they tend to be around € 100 and up.
There are also less known brands that have suggestive products. In addition, there are always opportunities to find high quality perfumes with discount for packaging change, discontinuity of a product, etc. In our special prices section we have a very interesting selection of perfumes at unique prices.
