    I could imagine if Creed invented Rive Gauche it would sell as well as GIT.

    I fully second Rive Gauche, but also e.g. Caron pour un Homme, Eau Sauvage, Mouchoir de Monsieur, Boucheron pour Homme and many more smell quite close to niche

    If not designers, then certainly designer prices....

    -Cabaret
    by Grés
    -Bergamotto Marino by Gianfranco Ferré
    -1776
    Russian Leather by Elsha.

    These three smell like they could easily be niche fragrances to me.....

    "Niche" has to be more than that to compensate for missing possibilities like broad testing/evaluation, raw materials. Not so good example: Timbuktu. Good idea, but an evaluation would have shown it too sweet, with a lacking balance, all in all a little crude. Better examples: Vierges Et Toreros (ELdO) - new idea executed at least to be bearable, Odeur 53 / 71 by CdG, same.

    So a "designer" smelling "niche" would be a bad frag - Missoni (new) or Feu D'Issey or Rush?

    Burberry The Beat & Power by 50 Cent are both very unique & different from most designer scents to me. I would include Live Jazz as well.

    M7 - totally off the beaten path of typical designer fragrances. It offers a daring and unique option for the evening, yet it is very classy.
    Carven Homme - high quality fragrance with complexity and development. This could have been a niche oriental.
    Paco Rabanne Extreme - I like the development in this one and the notes smell natural and high quality (which I associate with niche perfumery)
    Cacharel Nemo - I'll admit that I've only worn this a few times but it is also a stark departure from the mundane, designer offerings that it suggests a lack of aspiration for mass appeal, like most niche perfumes.

    Versace Pour Homme

    FYI, I've started a thread over on the female board if you have any suggestions for good "niche-y" designer scents aimed toward women.

    I could see Cartier Roadster in this category as well. To me it is a very different & unique take on a natural, herbal mint note. (The mint mixed with the patchouli always reminds me of wet concrete or a block basement. Very unique & non-mainstream).

    Now thats a very good frag. Very unique and overlooked round here.

    Funny how our perceptions differ. I think Nemo is great but it's a typical example of a designer fragrance to me in that it's well made and pleasant but doesn't really push any boundaries and/or doesn't smell like it contains exceptionally high quality ingredients.

    I want to revive this topic. Is your taste changing with age?

    For me Narciso Rodriguez Musc Collection EDP and Encre Noire.

    Designer that smells niche;

    Everything from Comme des Garcons and Costume National (though they're considered niche by many, they are in fact designer brands).

    I'll echo in with M7, Egoiste, and Midnight in Paris as well.

    Also, many offerings from Tom Ford and Etro are about as "nichey" smelling as you can get from modern designers.

    Wouldn't that technically be considered niche? I thought Scent Story only made fragrances.

    I'll repeat several that have already been mentioned (and remind everyone that historically, many designer fragrances have been as daring, if not more, than a whole host of niche offerings):

    Dior Fahrenheit
    Dior Homme
    Dior Eau Sauvage
    Chanel Egoiste
    Bvlgari Black
    Yves Saint-Laurent M7
