Why are some perfumes so expensive and others so cheap?

Perfume is a work of art, where an artist creates a unique blend of emotions for you to enjoy. You can compare this with a lovely painting: some artists commend much higher prices than other, not because the paint they use on their canvass is expensive, but because of their unique ability to apply it and make it so beautiful. Master perfumers like to work with expensive essential oils, but that’s not good enough, they also need to know how to put them together into a beautiful harmony. This is why some perfume houses will sell their fragrances for more than others. Some mass market fragrances are inexpensive because they are not very differentiated to others and they are made using common materials – many of them unfortunately all smell the same.

  • I grew up in Bermuda. Coming on second visit back in years. I can’t wait to visit your perfumery. I remember going there as a kid. My mom loved it.
