Alexandre J - Niche Fragrances

#NewAtParcos: Alexandre J

Founded in 2012 by the creative French designer of the same name, this fragrance label exudes luxury through each and every element. Inspired by the founder’s homeland, along with his love for travel and art across the globe, Alexandre J is packed with surprises that take you on an olfactory journey. Where old meets new, traditional meets contemporary, the brand’s philosophy is very simple—to create fragrances that are innovative, yet retain its essence of familiarity to the user. 

From the first whiff itself, one will find themselves embraced by an amalgamation of notes that are different and new, yet offer a sense of comfort. Each perfume is unique and is concocted keeping the user and their personalities in mind. Bending the rules of the niche fragrance industry, Alexandre J offers a personal touch through opulent and rich perfumes that come with a burst of unusual and offbeat notes, that are from the minimalistic tonality set by its counterparts. The blend of notes strike a balance, allowing each and every fragrance from the collections to be unisex.

Alexandre J perfumes are housed in beautifully handcrafted intricate bottles that reflect the fragrance and are packed in silk-ladened boxes that announce luxury the moment you lay your eyes on it. Unlike most niche fragrances, however, Alexandre J’s opulence does not come at an exorbitant cost. The fragrances start at a rather affordable price for those who want to indulge in luxury without breaking the bank. From the handcrafted bottle to the ingredients present in it, the journey of each fragrance is handcrafted to perfection—it’s a journey that will leave you in awe.
