CB I Hate Perfume: At the Beach 1966
L'Eau de L'Artisan
“They aren't connected . . . they aren't mafia. Not with names like Tuner Watson” - Jim Rockford
Creed Original Vetiver, Fresh Polianthes Tuberosa and Penhaligons Castile
Creed - Neroli Sauvage
EnvYuS My Wardrobe
Not sure this qualifies for niche but it does not come from a mainstream fragrance house and is unusual. I'm really impressed with Infusion (2003) by Bombay Sapphire. This is a fragrance spin off from their line of Gin. Never smelled a fragrance like it before. Well worth looking into. You can get a very good idea of what it will smell like by smelling some of the Bombay Sapphire Gin. Don't look for it in stores, I've only been able to find it on Ebay and at a very reasonable price.

This summer is all about Virgin Island Water as far as I am concerned :toppie:
Ormonde Jayne ~ Isfarkand
Carthusia ~ Uomo
I also agree with Creed's OV and VIW -- both would be great choices.
It's not a niche but not that many people know about it - Nemat White Musk oil. It lasts FOREVER and you can get a 4 oz. bottle of their website for $20 shipped.
Bond no. 9 Fire Island. It's not my favorite, but it's definitely summery. I second the Creed OV recommendation, & will also suggest Creed MI and SMW.
"Wait...is David Bowie really God?" - Penelope Garcia
Bahiana by Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier.
Runners up: Yerbamate by Lorenzo Villoresi, Erolfa (if you're by the sea) and Silver Mountain Water by Creed.
The Beach by Ava Luxe
My summer scent would be Passage d'Enfer
"Whereof one cannot speak, one must remain silent thereof." --Wittgenstein
Easy: L'homme de coeur by Divine. Excellent niche EdeP with iris and vetiver that is stunning as it is subtle.
<Shakes head...> If it must be niche...
Caswell Massey No. 6
Acqua di Parma Colonia
L'Occitane Eau de 4 Voleurs
In rotation: Greenbriar (new), Silver Mountain Water, Dunhill for Men (1934), Acqua di Parma Colonia, Habit Rouge EDC, Ho Hang, B*Men, Agua Brava
Original Vetiver is going to be my top for summer days. Zino will take the nights.
You are not your perfume.
Off the top of my Head....I'd have to say....LORENZO VILLORESI "DILMUN".
Il Profumo's Mandarine (a lot like Creed's Selection Verte for me)
Maestrale - Profumi di Pantelleria
Eau de Toilette
by Profumi di Pantelleria
A man wearing rolled-up jeans and a weathered white pullover made of thick wool walks along the beach at sunset, in the calm that always follows a stormy Mistral high tide. Light-footed and fancy free, he breathes in the fresh bite of aromas enhanced by the forces of nature. Salty sea air, the damp wood of a burnt-out bonfire, a vague sense of exotic spices and citrus trees, the unmistakable briny aroma of seaweed washed up on the beach. The mysterious appeal of the coast in winter, solitary and poetic, real and intense is framed by the deep blue of the sea and the grey of the cliffs and the rocky beach. A magical hybrid between a seadog and a poet. A thinking man, sincere and simple, who knows how to appreciate nature's tiniest messages.
Maestrale captures the surreal peacefulness that follows the howl of the surf-ridden sea... Delicate citrusy and aromatic top notes are a prelude to a flowery, spicy middle that rests on woody, green and amber bottom notes. Timeless and introspective.
bergamot, lavender, rhubarb, rum, jasmine, iris, cardomom, coriander, cedarwood, vetiver, ambrette seeds
Fetish is my ultimate summer scent.
IL Profumo-Aria di Mare.
Acqua di Parma Collonia Assoluta
Both very nice scents & long lasting especially in the case of Aria di Mare.
