Providing scents as a gift is quite a tradition. It is believed that since the Egyptian era, giving perfume as a gift was considered a way to demonstrate affection to a friend, a partner, or a family member.
Nowadays, with a wide variety of scents in the market, many people can find it challenging to gift a perfume to a loved one since it is hard to decide which scent is the best for each person.
From Le Labo Rose 31 to Tom Ford’s Metallique, the market is packed with scents and it can be quite hard to decide which one is the best for a gift, especially if you don’t know which perfume he or she uses and you don't familiar with the different options available.
Another major issue for those who feel like buying a fancy perfume to provide as a gift is that scents are quite overprized items.
For instance, a 50 ml bottle of Le Labo Rose 31 can cost up to U$S $192. With these prices, the high-end perfume seems to be unaffordable for the majority of the population.
In some cases, the high prices are justified because of the unique ingredients used to create fragrances. In some cases, we are talking about a significant amount of a very rare flower or herb that needs to be processed to get just a few milliliters of them.
But the ingredients used and the processes implied in creating a high-end fragrance are not the only reason behind the high prices.
Class A perfumes are also expensive because they use fancy (and not cheap at all) packaging that has a direct impact on the final cost of the product. In some cases, we are talking about crystal bottles that cost a fortune, without even a drop of the scent inside.
Furthermore, marketing is also to blame for the high prices of perfumes. Most Class A scents are represented by famous actresses, actors, or models that charge a huge salary for their services.
Marketing and packaging costs, which are not related at all to the quality of the scent, are the main reasons why buying a fancy perfume is so expensive.
Quality focused alternative
Fortunately, not everything is lost for scents lovers. If you want to buy a high-end perfume for a loved one and don’t want to break your budget, you should take a look at the many alternative scents available.
Nowadays, thanks to e-commerce, you can easily find companies such as Dossier.co, which produces high-end scents focusing in the quality on the products.

So, you don’t have to take the risk of purchasing a fragrance you are unsure about because you can opt for any of the scents inspired by some of the most popular perfumes in the world. And the truth is that the difference between both products is so minimal that they are almost indistinguishable.
But, if you do like to surprise your loved one, you can also opt for Dossier Originals. We are talking about a catalog of perfumes created by the brand that is quite interesting and also affordable.
