Did you know that the smells you are drawn to can reveal more about your personality than your writing or clothes? To learn about perfumes and personalities is a big part of my job. As a dedicated beauty editor and fragrance blogger, my daily explorations lead me to encounters with the creators behind exquisite brands and scents.

Q: How do you see the future of niche perfumery evolving?

AJ: Niche perfumery has experienced a renaissance in recent years, fuelled by a growing appreciation for craftsmanship, authenticity, and individuality. As consumers become increasingly discerning, they seek out unique and immersive fragrance experiences that are not present in mass-market offerings. Niche perfumery will continue to thrive as long as brands remain true to their artistic vision and uphold the principles of creativity and innovation. At Alexandre.J, we are excited to be at the forefront of this evolution, pushing the boundaries of perfumery and inspiring others to embrace the artistry of fragrance.

Q: What will be your key tip for a beginner in a niche category?

AJ: Choosing a perfume is exactly like having a crush on somebody, It has to be love at the first sight, You will never wear it if it’s not love at first whiff…

  1. Curiosity Over Brand: Don’t solely base your decision on brand popularity. Instead, nurture your curiosity. Ask to experience various scents from different brands. Explore the diversity of fragrances to find what indeed resonates with you.
  2. Trust Your Instincts: When choosing a perfume, letting your senses guide you is crucial. Just like falling in love, it should be an instant connection. If you don’t feel that initial spark, trust your instincts- you’ll unlikely ever truly enjoy wearing the fragrance.
  3. Reflect on Your Identity: Consider the person you aspire to be, who you are, and who you’re becoming. Your choice of fragrance should align with your identity and reflect who you are or want to project to the world.
  4. Embrace the Stories: Each fragrance carries a story and evokes a unique experience. Whether it’s the allure of the packaging or the essence of the scent itself, there’s something for everyone. Dive into the narratives behind each fragrance to enrich your appreciation of the artistry and craftsmanship involved.

Q: How do we match perfumes to personalities?

AJ: In the world of fragrances, there’s a scent for every mood and personality—whether nostalgic, romantic, or even a little somber. But there’s also a category for those with a darker, more mysterious persona—not in colour, but in essence.

Consider Black Musc—a fragrance that embodies this enigmatic charm. It’s like encountering someone who exudes an air of mystery, captivating others without fully revealing themselves. Picture someone who prefers to keep their gaze lowered, adding to their allure and intrigue. They’re not necessarily sure of what they want, yet they yearn to stand out in their unique way without taking too many risks. Black Musc, like this person, has a captivating allure that draws you in, leaving you intrigued and wanting more.

Q: Which scent would you recommend for me, and why?

AJ: I’d suggest “The Ode to Rose” for you. It’s a classic and intense fragrance that beautifully intertwines strength and vulnerability. Embracing this scent requires courage—it demands confidence in assuming a rose‘s femininity and delicate nature while also revealing a deeper trust in oneself. It’s about embodying resilience and sensitivity, qualities that resonate with your personality. If you’re drawn to exploring these dual aspects of yourself through scent, “The Ode to Rose” is the ideal choice.
