For a scent that exudes understated luxury
It's easy to understand the appeal of 'quiet luxury'. The term, made viral thanks in no small part to the understated, elegant styling on HBO's Succession, refers to the prioritisation of quality, craftsmanship and timelessness over trends or overt flaunting of wealth through designer labels. It's slow and considered consumption over fast fashion and mass marketing.
But how can we apply that same philosophy to perfume? How can we, if we so desire, choose a scent that exudes quiet luxury?
Exploring niche fragrance is a great way to exude a sense of quiet luxury. Rather than big brand names or trending celebrity scents, choosing a unique perfume from an independent perfumer demonstrates an appreciation of quality and craftsmanship and exudes understated luxury. With most niche fragrances, you know you're paying for quality fragrance materials rather than a brand name. Niche perfumes also tend to make use of rare or expensive ingredients of the highest calibre, which ensures performance and longevity. Choose a scent that has year-round appeal, rather than following trends.
Orris materials are some of the most prized and costly products available to the perfumer. The full processing of the Iris rhizome is lengthy, demanding and requires the harvester and distiller to possess great skill, intuition and fairly esoteric knowledge. It’s the kind of work that is passed down through generations.
