For centuries, scents were tailored for the rich and famous, and you weren’t considered royalty if you didn’t own your very own eau. Although perfumes are more widely produced today, some luxury brands still continue to uphold the tradition of creating exclusive fragrances for their high-profile patrons.
Here are 8 incredibly niche perfume brands that put the grand in fragrance.
Christian Dior La Collection Privée
The La Collection Privée by Christian Dior is an exclusive collection of authentic and sophisticated fragrances for men and women. Created by Dior’s master perfumer, François Demachy, it incorporates ingredients that are handpicked from all over the world by Demachy himself. Pure and unadulterated ingredients like Oud Wood from Indonesia, or Jasmine from Grasse, are grown and cultivated exclusively for the House of Dior. The scents are then developed in the Dior Perfume Creation workshop. The fragrances in this collection are all lowered into their boxes by hand, and even the labels are delicately positioned to optimise visual impact for the recipient.
