So, what is Niche Perfume?

To understand what niche perfume is, it is best to first distinguish the difference between fragrances that are classified as niche or mainstream.

'Niche' is the name given to perfumes which are often interesting, unusual, special and difficult to find.

Niche perfume houses, all work with the same ‘palette’ of fragrance ingredients but the niche perfumers try daring combinations that are inspired by very personal events and experiences. All fragrances tell a story, and exploring niche perfumes can be a great way to learn about the olfactory universe.

Mainstream or designer perfume is manufactured to be worn en-masse - or by many - whereas niche perfumes are more exclusive and personal as they are hand crafted using the finest and delicate of ingredients, produced in small quantities.

Many of the fragrances that are considered rare, exclusive or niche are not marketed based on gender. This is because the exquisite perfumes made by artisan or master perfumer or are so unique that they are crafted to indulge the senses of all.

Niche perfume is a type of fragrance that will express high quality and so is more appealing from a unisex point of view.
