    it may just be me but I'm not a fan of the flower/angel design.
    I like any of the ones with the cursive font as well as #43.

    There are a bunch that I ruled out. Not sure if you are able to make them out, but, let me know if you think any of those should be reconsidered.

    Interesting...Why is that? For example, why might you not take 36 or 43 seriously?

    I've just re-ranked them on there based on the way I'm presently leaning. Keep in mind there are a couple of days left in the contest, so there are likely ALOT of entries still to come. Some designers wait till the last minute to submit their designs.

    Also keep something in mind. Designs can be tinkered to our liking. For example, color schemes can be changed (to make it less cigar box looking as someone mentioned) or things can be moved around. Fonts can be changed, etc.

    This is a very exciting project for me, made MORE exciting by the fact that I can involve the BN community in the actual site build. I really appreciate all your input and, yes, once the site is up and running, I will have a little something special for all of you.

    it could be better if its "Niche Perfumery" or "Niche Fragrance" instead of "Fragrance Niche"

    36 gives me an old/cheap vibe and it doesnt leave an impression, just my opinion and perception tho. im a designer myself so i might see it differently(not boasting) 43 is alright gives me an classy vibe but dont see how horseys relate to fragrance but if a classy impression is all its gonna leave then 25 does it better! 25 and 15 exudes class and simplicity, easy recognizable and the site u can build around that color scheme and logo wouldnt give me a doubt about its authenticity. also logo is easy usable for instance if u decide to sell samples and whatnot it would fit perfectly on an sample. i dont really know what the site is about tho haha just my $0.2

    I think 25 is the strongest logo so far. I agree with Xqizit, the imagery in 43 doesn't relate to the site in any way, and 36 (and I would add 38) look like less professional logos. Those little swirls are easily found online for free when searching for vector embellishments. 25 is clear and simple, though I think it is still lacking a little refinement to make it a real luxury logo. I do like #5 actually, if the word fragrance was in a more legible font.

    I am surprised no logo submissions so far relate to fragrance. Having some sort of tie-in with the subject matter could be a good approach.

    I like #9 the best. It's to the point and easy to read.

    I like the elegance of 23 the most, but if you were looking for something a little more "toned down," I'd go with either 9 or 10 - very simple yet pretty chic.

    I like #30.

    Clear and simple, with nice type fonts, and makes it clear that there's a website. It also gives the impression of a sign you might see outside of a high-end but understated bricks and mortar shop.

    That's funny, 25 is one of the ones I like the least. I find some of the more "elegant" scripts and designs a bit more appealing. But, that's just my opinion.

    The flower-bird motif in 43 seems the most original thing. But the color there is too subdued, perhaps that can work as a background but you want more in the logo. And then why not color it properly rather than have it as a silhouette?

    23 is good too, but the horses inevitably remember Hermes. That's not necessarily a bad thing, if it subliminally makes one think of luxury. But if one realizes the connection to the Hermes logo, it seems a copycat. 38 is the simpler, unadorned by effective.

    One thought I had was that with a name like yours, I'd have though of incorporating some sort of niche into the logo. Perhaps this can be added to some of the existing designs? For inspiration, many reinassance italian paintings, like Piero della francesca, have very elegant and classical niches.

    I agree with HDDP in that the name doesn't have a hook to it and is a little too descriptive. Names without a hook to them are hard to remember. Names that are too descriptive become generic and are very easy to forget. You don't really want a name that is either too hard to remember or too easy to forget. Either is a problem. I like FragranceNiche better than either of those mentioned above because they are too descriptive are actually very easy to forget because the mind confuses them with the purpose of the brand name. It is far better to select a name that has some room in it for an identity to be applied to it by the viewer. If you have to work at the name to remember it initially, it is easier to remember in the long run. The example of Aedes de Venustas is a name that has little logical or descriptive connection and so "Aedes" is easy to remember once you have used it a time or two. LuckyScent is also a name with a hook to it that is cute or clever and is therefore easy to remember. I would recommend you select a name that can be associated with your website/store purpose but does not describe or name the store or websites primary function. The name may actually be more important than the design of the logo. Just a thought.
