    Default Do you ever smell other people wearing niche fragrances?

    I can pretty much only really say that I've smelled a couple people wearing niche...One was Creed MI, and one was wearing Tea For Two, but honestly I can't really say that I ever catch people wearing anything other than designer fragrances most of the time.

    Same here. I smell Acqua di Gio and Curve the most, but those are far from niche.

    On a flight recently, I smelled a woman wearing AdP Colonia. It brought a smile to my face.

    No, never. The most surprised I've ever been is smelling YSL Live Jazz on someone, that's the closest to niche I've ever smelled on someone, ha!

    It'll be interesting when our European colleagues wake up and come on line. There is an order of magnitude more shops selling niche stuff over there than in my country. I'd expect more positive responses from them.

    Though when I was in Italy last year, the only niche stuff I smelled was on my wife and cousins - because I'd bought it for them.

    Also, most niche scents don't project that much.

    In the USA, I am usually the only one wearing EDTs. (I'd say 80% of the people do not use enough to be detectable or any at all).
    In Mexico, well people do not have the same access to niche. However, there is usually plenty overprised designer scents over there.
    So, no I never get to smell something niche.

    I smell Silver Mountain Water and Frederic Malle's Carnal Flower on people more often than I'd like to. A woman in my building bathes in CF and the elevator ride to the lobby is often a real challenge. I love this fragrance, I just wish people knew how strong it really is.

    This past summer, someone was wearing something niche. I don't know exactly what, but I think it was a Creed.

    The percentage of people that wear niche fragrances is insignificant. Only in rare situations you will find a person wearing them in my natural habitat, academia.

    The answer is no.

    In Oklahoma City? Not often, no. I smelled Creed's Millésime Impérial on a lady recently, then on her husband a week or two later. I turned my friend Leslie on to Noir Epices, and she now hoards hers as though it were gold bullion.

    There's a very nice frag shop (Mystique Fragrances) at 50 Penn Place here, and the owner (a very nice fellow) told me that he sells a lot of Creed. I think I may have smelled Himalaya on a couple of folks locally, but I could have been smelling Paco Rabanne XS -- I dunno. (The two are SO similar!) Another local shop, Escentials, sells a good deal of Truefitt & Hill.
    (They closed out their stock of Antica Farmacista last year, though.)

    I smell a lot more niche frags in the DFW (Dallas/Fort Worth) area when I visit every other month or so. (It's only 3 hours south of OKC.) Last time I went I think I smelled Bois de Portugal (or possibly New York) on at least three different guys.

    I recently started working for a new company and our director wears some niche stuff. I haven't commented about it yet, but the first time I met him I could have sworn he was wearing CdG 2man, and I oftentimes smell Original Santal (which I guess *could* be Joop!, but considering his salary I doubt it) The other one in his rotation smells incredible and I would really like to know what it is, but I haven't felt comfortable asking.

    The other day he confessed that his wife is a shop-a-holic and can't stay away from Neiman Marcus.. I'm guessing that has a thing or two to do with it.

    As the first and only shop with niche scents opened last summer in the capitol and I live 200 kms from it, my answer is obvious

    Well, of course. Moscow is the most expensive city in the world.

    There's one lady at work from whom I've noticed FM Carnal Flower emanating a couple of times. She makes quite the "statement" with it (which I'm not so sure I appreciate) - although CF is an amazing fragrance. I've also smelled Diptyque's Oyedo on another. And another wears Geir Ness (of Norway) fragrance for women "Laila" - and she wears that one alot. I've never smelled Geir on a man here, though. You'd think it would be better known here than it is. I found out about it here on BN!

    same here! I smelled this on someone the first time I met him at a summer music festival and it really opened up a whole new world... It was the first time I'd stumbled upon Luckyscent, trying to find it, and I did, and I bought The only other I've smelled on someone is Creed Original Vetiver. But still, those seem more mainstream niche... I've yet to smell a Lutens, Montale, etc. This was a very interesting question. I think it goes to show that in the end wearing a fragrance is really personal. If someone else catches a whiff, bonus, maybe

    In public: twice in four years on men - that isn't much, is it? Both gentlemen had overdone it: one with BdP, and with an overdose of GIT the other. So there may be a lot more wearers, burt one just does not notice them in spacey areas (me hopefully amongst them ;-)). In Europe Creed is about as niche as Hermes was before they flooded department stores with their jardins, terre and river. By the way, the same can be said about Lutens. All major department stores have a Lutens counter now, and the way they are located you'll find them frequented by ladies only. I raise eyebrows talking to strangers about wearing Lutens myself. Their regular line is not considered niche by people nowadays. And terms like unisex, for men and women?? The young crowd may be familiar with that, but most of my friends have never heard about it. And I don't blame them: window displays of Lutens want to catch the eye of a woman!

    In the last couple of months, I have identified: PARIS, 4711, OPIUM PH, and Fracas For Men on strangers. Not so niche around here I guess.

    Only twice. Once was original vetiver but I was in a fancy place so that didn't surprise me. Another time was bleeker street. That smelled so good in the air!

    Ah, i've smelt Tabac Blond on one of my teachers once, also smelt Chanel Bois des Iles on her, but thats about as niche as it gets, my dad has 2.5oz bottles of GIT and BdP, and he uses them occasionally.
