Lastly the packaging and bottle is also important, it is like art, in that regards can be viewed as priceless.

The characteristics of niche pefume are mostly that they are unusual, hard to find, special and on occasion quite expensive. Niche perfume brands have the freedom to explore daring combinations of ingredients which at times are a reflection of personal experiences. 

How long will perfume last on me?

Not only does this depend on the type of fragrance but also on your body chemistry. Your natural odour and the oilier your skin can determine how long the perfume will last. Perfume tends to hold onto oily skin longer than dry skin so it may be worth putting on some cream before applying your fragrance.

Fragrance notes are the the individual components that make up the complexity of which is perfume, almost like pieces to a puzzle.
