Niche perfumes are palettes on which perfumers and perfume houses display their creativity.
With the use of rare and exotic perfume oils, in high concentration, niche perfumes grant you an unforgettable olfactive experience.
Based on my observation on certain scent profiles that women are more allured to, here are certain niche perfumes that attract alot of attention and compliments from women.
Liwa is a sensual smoky floral fragrance, rotating around a majestic incense mood, opens to the delicate elegance of saffron, blending with jasmine’s powdery and fresh notes and the softness of patchouli base. A perfect warm balance between white flowers and oud wood and vetiver.
With its iconic bottle design wrapped in soft grey, the accompanying scent is as sophisticated as its appearance – top notes include Italian citrus and fig leaves, with sultry hints of jasmine, cinnamon, sandalwood and frankincense gradually coming through
