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.
Diptyque Personal Fragrances
In 1961, three artists came together to create Diptyque – Yves Coueslant (a set designer), Desmond Knox-Leet (a painter), and Christiane Gautrot (a textile designer). The three friends loved to travel, and Diptyque’s personal fragrances (launched seven years later) were mostly inspired by their adventures and memories in exotic places. With over 43 unique fragrances to date, each scent is intimate, nostalgic and personal to the wearer.
🌼 Olène 🌾 The first whiff of this reminded me of beautiful white flowers that transcends through time ✨ Amazingly enough, this fragrance inspired by Venice captures the essences of Jasmine, Wisteria, Sweet Honeysuckle 🌸 . I love layering this with the freshness of the yuzu from @diptyque Oyédo 🍊to get the full Spring-Summer experience ☀️ . What is your Spring love? 💕
