Niche perfumes are trending at the moment, and you’ve probably seen the term used by your favourite beauty stores across your social feeds. However, it’s not always easy to define exactly what a “niche” perfume is. Read on to learn what makes something niche, and the brands you need to know about.

So, What is Niche?

Niche refers to something that appeals to a specific small group of people. The perfume industry has embraced the word "niche" for several years now, making it a popular buzzword to describe specialized perfumers offering something new and different.

Then, Why Go Niche?

The vast amount of perfumes and brands available makes choosing the perfect scent incredibly challenging. Classic perfumes from well-known designer brands will always have a place in our collection, but that doesn’t mean you can’t explore the world of niche scent too. Here’s some top niche brands to try:

1. Kilian:

Kilian is the grandson of a long line of luxury cognac producers. He decided to take on the challenge of creating a new brand.

His family's home was in the heart of Cognac, and he studied at CELSA. Before he left, he wrote a thesis about the semantics of scent to find a language that would easily describe scents.

Today, many of Kilian's fragrances are inspired by childhood memories of his grandfather.

Here are the bestsellers:

2. Arcadia:

Ever since she was a young girl, Amna Al Habtor was fascinated by the scent of her mother's perfume. Inspired by the memories and emotions evoked by fragrance, she decided to create her own perfume collection to capture these moments. Her first scent was created for her wedding to forever remember how special the day was.
