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.
Le Labo City Exclusives
Outrageously cheeky, modern and unpretentious, this niche collection is described as the rebellious child of the perfume universe. Founders Fabrice Penot and Edouard Roschi strongly believed in the authentic art of perfume making, and completely shunned conventional poetic and whimsical interpretations, even going so far as to label traditional crystal bottles as a marketing gimmick. Instead, their perfumes come in practical and clinical looking glass bottles, straightforwardly labelled with a number that represents the number of notes in their composition. The name chosen is based on the most prominent note present in the fragrance.
