Perfume weekend: the hottest Italian niche brands you need to know

Published July 10, 2020

Italy… The name itself tastes like warm nights, sweet oranges, fresh neroli flowers and bright splashes of Aperol Spritz. Bellissimo!

Even if the visit to sunny Italy is postponed till the next year, you can still enjoy the rich flavour of Italian vacation. All you need is to pick the right perfume.

For this weekend, Sniph’s scent experts selected the best niche perfume brands from Italy. We can guarantee: you will find the relaxed Mediterranean spirit in every bottle!

Calé Fragranze d'Autore

Music and scents - what is the connection? The creator of the Italian perfume brand Calé Fragranze d'Autore, Dr. Silvio Levi, knows the answer. Each perfume by Calé comes with a complimentary soundtrack that you can listen at the brand’s website to understand each scent on a deeper level. While every bottle, topped with the red cord, contains the philosophical parable about the different facets of human life and nature. If you are willing to dive deeper into Italian philosophy, this is the brand to try.
