Niche and independent fragrance brands are emerging from all around the globe, drawing on the heritage and life of their owners and perfumers for inspiration.
Whilst many people may not realise, Australia has a thriving independent and niche perfume industry, with many new brands appearing each year.
See a true Aussie lighthearted-yet-serious approach with Corey Newcombe's Criminal Elements - a brand that offers everything from the classic fougère of Vigour, to the uplifting, 80s-nostalgia inspired citrus of Neon.
Ricky and Sandy are two talented independent perfumers and launched their brand Chasing Scents in 2021. With a mutual love for tea and Sandy's talents in chemistry, their fragrances are made in small batches, using a variety of self-distilled teas, natural extracts, aroma compounds and resins.
