Niche Perfume Brands

Perfume Brand diptyque

What is a niche perfume brand you might ask.  I am new to the topic, to be honest.  According to, fragrances are categorized as niche or mainstream according to the number of retail outlets stocking a scent or brand.  So most fragrances that you find in Myer/David Jones and other retail outlets would be considered mainstream, brands like Chanel, Christian Dior, Estee Lauder and so on.  A niche brand would be produced on a smaller scale, have little or next to no presence in large stores and would more likely be found in a specialized retail store.

This is a list of 20 niche perfume brands that I found whilst googling at –

  1. Annick Goutal
  2. Arquiste
  3. Byredo
  4. CB I Hate Perfume
  5. Cire Trudon
  6. Clive Christian
  7. Creed
  8. The Different Company
  9. Diptyque
  10. DS & Durga
  11. Frederic Malle
  12. Jo Malone
  13. Joya Studio
  14. Juniper Ridge
  15. Le Labo
  16. Maison Francis Kurkdijan
  17. Odin
  18. Penhaligon’s
  19. Ramon Monegal
  20. Xerjoff
