As I’ve said before, I only buy niche perfumes. Once you discover the world of selective fragrances there’s no way back to regular high-end scents. The world of niche perfumery is wide and complex, and it takes time to study it and learn to appreciate it. At the same time is limited and restrained. The manufacturers are few, and you won’t find any ads with glamorous celebrities and models promoting niche perfumes. They are much more expensive than regular perfumes, being composed of unique and extra pure ingredients. These fragrances are usually made by talented perfumers tired of the conformist selection of perfumes presented on the market.
Everything can’t be written in one blog post, but I will proceed this subject later on. What I can say now is that today’s Dior, Chloe, Marc Jacobs, D&G, YSL and other designer scents are not in the same league as exclusive perfumes – it’s not even the same sport. Just a waste of money.
Some of my favorite selective lines are Annick Goutal, Diptyque and the Swedish Byredo.
