Our Favourite Unconventional Fragrances

Most of the time, our fragrances of choice are those we feel have captured our spirit, mood, or our persona—or, the persona we’d like to project, at the very least. Perfumers, of course, are happy to comply, offering an unending stream of options that capture and convey each and every feeling and air from sensuality, to power, to romance, and so forth. Which is why we can’t help but feel a little bit intrigued when they give us something that’s completely outside the box—like a scent that smells like dirt, and other oddly-specific items, places, etc. Click through this gallery for some of the most unconventional fragrances we’ve come across, and the story of its curious conception.
