The selective perfumery that is gaining popularity these days is a new trend of global fashion or the destiny of the rich and famous? Let's see why scents, created against the tendencies of the world perfumery industry, are so valuable.
Against the background of these processes, the selective perfumery, designed for a narrow circle of people and featuring the use of high-quality natural ingredients. When creating such fragrances, the perfumer primarily focuses on one's own preferences and fantasy, and does not follow the marketing strategies of the market and the world fashion trends. Aromas of selective perfumery is not advertised to the general public, and all information about brands is distributed through the so-called "word of mouth". Moreover, they are presented in no more than 250 points of sales around the world and have no more than 10 fragrances in one product line.
The starting point for the emergence of selective perfumery is the time of the reign of Queen Cleopatra, when aromatic oils based on natural ingredients were first created, intended not for religious rites, but for personal aesthetic purposes.
