Dossier Parfums: the high-end olfactory sensation at a low price

Dossier Perfumes’ mission is to make high-end perfumes accessible to everyone. Shocked by the extravagant price markup on perfumes – luxury brands can make up to 95% profit per bottle – the New York-based company has launched its own alternative. The result? A premium perfumery that forgoes expensive celebrities and expensive packaging in favor of premium, ethically sourced, sustainably sourced fragrance available at a fraction of the cost of those marketed by mainstream brands.

Dossier fragrances are inspired by the fragrances of designer brands. With perfumers based in Grasse, Europe’s perfume capital, and a nose/evaluator in Paris, their French connection sniffs the olfactory profile of high-end fragrances such as Killian’s “Love, don’t be shy” to create their own comparable products. (It’s Floral Marshmallow for this one, in case you were wondering!). Although their fragrances may be similar to those of their competitors, Dossier fragrances differ from established designer brands in almost every other way…

Affordable prices

With high-end fragrances currently selling for between $80 and $300 for a 50ml bottle, Dossier fragrances are available for between $30 and $60. The key point here is that branded perfumes have the cost of their marketing campaigns and packaging designs baked into their prices – not to mention their overhead for the boutiques they operate in some of the more expensive addresses. of the world.

Dossier avoids all of that with a streamlined and ethical approach to sales. Using natural ingredients, simply packaged, they ship their products from a central location directly to you, the customer. Taking celebrity endorsements and expensive promotional campaigns also helps cut costs.

Transparency commitment

Unlike some well-established labels, Dossier Parfums is clear about everything that goes into every bottle of their perfumes. There are no mysterious ingredients, no need to google unpronounceable chemicals, and no cryptic descriptions of any kind.

This approach carries over to their pricing and general approach to business. Shipping cost is provided upfront with no other hidden charges. Plus, everything from details on how they source ingredients to their return policy (in partnership with Give Back Box, a charity that distributes returned products to those in need) is publicly available. open and simple.

100% vegan and cruelty-free

That should go without saying, but getting to this point has been harder for mega-brands with old-school approaches and antiquated supply chains. As a challenger beauty brand, Dossier Perfumes was created with the principles of being completely non-toxic, free from animal products of any kind and a policy of zero tolerance to animal testing.

Folder Fragrances = Ecological

At Dossier, everything from the sourcing and blending of their fragrances to the packaging process is ethical and sustainable. The brand prides itself on being as close to plastic-free as possible (the only exception is the plastic pump) and only uses 100% recyclable packaging materials (glass and cardboard).
