Niche perfume is not a mass product. It is a product that tends to "sell itself": the niche perfume brand does not look for you; you look for it. This is why it is usually found in unique, carefully chosen points of sale like Perfume Dubai, and appeals to the shopper who is looking for a different, unique fragrance with character and personality.
What is a niche fragrance?
A niche perfume is the fruit of creativity and originality. The master perfumer who creates a niche perfume enjoys a lot of artistic freedom to produce it. It is therefore a work of art intended for a limited number of customers who are truly passionate about perfumery, who appreciate the uniqueness of these unconventional scents.
Moreover, a niche perfume has its own exclusive essences and raw materials, which are far from conventional. Also, niche perfumes are not mass produced, so the chances of finding someone else wearing them are much more difficult.
In short, they are totally special and unique creations that invite you to broaden your olfactory horizons.
Is niche perfume better?
- Small niche brands often save on packaging and marketing. This allows them to use more noble ingredients. So you pay more for the product itself and less for everything around it.
- While these brands obviously need to be profitable to survive, they have one significant advantage: they only have to find a limited number of customers for their products each year. This means they can be more creative. Their scents don't need to appeal to millions.
- Real niche perfumes are more original and contain more expensive ingredients. You get more for your money, but above all, you are buying a personal and unique product, made with love and devotion.
What is the difference between designer and niche fragrances?
- Designer fragrances are perfumes of big, luxury companies, especially fashion houses, which can be found in almost all department stores, airports and perfumeries. These brands appeal to a wide audience, and even more so in marketing campaigns with models or famous actors to make their perfumes even more appealing. Launching a new fragrance is like releasing a new movie: the risks are high and they want to be sure it will be a blockbuster.
- Niche perfumes are perfumes from small companies that only manufacture perfumes (and sometimes other scented products like candles). They generally hire external perfumers for the creation of their fragrances.
