Donna Karan, Fuel. While not niche, this one is at the high end of designers and it's only sold at Neiman's, which means it's as uncommon as niche scents. Oh, and it smells FANTASTIC.

Le Labo, Rose 31

Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.
Invasion BarbareThese. Both would be great signatures in GA. FILA!!Dior Bois d'Argent (technically a designer, but with niche level quality IMO)

Year round: would recommend something by MFK (Lumiere noire, apom) since it is very "user friendly" (think high-end designer aesthetic); Amyris would fit the bill but it is really "designer-ish" so it might defeat the purpose of getting a niche scent.
Otherwise, Penhaligon's Sartorial is great for everyday wear; I love IB personally but I think it projects too much for the people around me and I get self-conscious wearing it.
Frank No. 2 is another niche crowd pleaser.

MFK Lumiere Noire
Amouage Ciel Man
AdP Colonia Essenza
Lubin Le Vetyver - Itasca
...and yes, the obvious omission: Creed Aventus
I have left Basenotes due to excessive childish behavior by community members.
If you need to contact me, please use alternate forms of communication.
I would say:
MFK Pluriel (masculine)
Cartier Declaration Essense
Eau des Baux
Cartier is Designer BUT I think Declaration could easily flip the bill as a niche type scent.
CURRENT TOP TEN FOR FALL/WINTER:
1.) MFK Pluriel for men
2.) Frank no. 2 LA
3.) Clive Christian "L"
5.) Nicolai New York Intense
6.) Bel Ami Vetiver
7.) Invasion Barbare
9.) Fougere Royale
New York by Parfums de Nicolaï.
