Niche Perfumes

Niche fragrances hold a special status within the perfume industry. What sets them apart? The term 'niche' is derived from the French word “la niche,” which translates as a nook or a cranny, emphasizing the main feature that sets these fragrances apart - their uniqueness.

The production of the best niche fragrances and the design of their bottles is also notable for its complexity, which is why niche perfumes are usually produced by a company that does not produce anything else.
