6 Niche Fragrances That Are Worth The Splurge
When it comes to fragrances, one can never have too many. Honestly, even if you’ve found your perfect signature scent, mixing up your vibe with different olfactories is always welcome––especially if you’re looking for fragrances to match your many moods. When browsing for or even purchasing perfumes, people often get drawn to the popular designer labels––and while their fanbase is truly justified, niche fragrances are often overshadowed. So what exactly are niche perfumes and why should you be throwing your attention towards this lesser-known category too?
Niche perfumes are those made by companies that solely focus on producing perfumes, unlike designer labels that diverge into fashion or beauty items too. The production of these fragrances too aren’t large scale and therefore are targeted more at a smaller audience. In terms of quality too, you’ll find that the raw material used in the formulation of the perfume is far superior than that of those used in mass production. This also makes niche fragrances a little more pricey than the usual designer perfumes you’re used to (but, totally worth it).
