Dossier Perfumes Offer Luxury Cruelty-Free Fragrances Affordably

Press Sample (Unaffiliated Links)

Dossier makes high quality cruelty-free and vegan fragrances that are very luxurious, and yet quite affordable. Inspired by famous iconic perfumes, their permutations are equally compelling, but at a fraction of the price. Their elegant glass bottles are punctuated my thick metal caps with a magnetic closure, and everything about their fragrances embody high quality and high style.

Dossier's Mission:

Dossier was founded out of a desire to make premium fragrances accessible to everyone. As scent enthusiasts ourselves, it became impossible for us to turn a blind eye to the price markups traditionally seen in the industry. Whether it be marking up scents because of celebrity endorsement fees or pricey packaging, we realized perfumes were being sold for way more than they cost to make.

It’s time to say goodbye to feeling lost or left behind when it comes to experiencing premium fragrances and to welcome a new way to shop; your own. With Dossier, enjoying clean, ethically sourced, long-lasting, high-end perfume is within reach.

For those who feel overlooked by the industry, who are tired of fragrances being an investment, or who are curious about stepping into a new way of consuming perfumes, we can’t wait to take the journey with you.
Dossier Aromatic Star Anise Eau de Toilette ($29.00 for 1.7 oz. from Dossier): Inspired by Dior's Sauvage, Aromatic Star Anise Eau de Toilette is a decidedly woodsy scent that is punctuated by pepper, patchouli, amberwood, citrus and lavender. While it is considered a masculine fragrance, I actually think that the dry down is more of a unisex scent. I do not have Dior Sauvage, against which I can compare this scent, but it is warm, woodsy and decidedly tantalizing. 

According to Dossier,

Aromatic Star Anise (inspired by Dior's Sauvage) rewrites a very classical masculine fragrance structure named "fougere" (a blend of citrus notes, lavender, geranium, and patchouli). Paired with highly qualitative raw materials and a touch of fantasy thanks to star anise, this scent delights the senses in a whole new way. Aromatic Star Anise from Dossier pays tribute to one of the most recognizable scents in the world: Sauvage by Dior.

Dossier's Aromatic Star Anise is a Dior Sauvage dupe that's more sophisticated and richer than anything else available in the market. Designed based on the traditional French fragrance formula "fougere", which consists of a citrus scent with lavender, geranium, and patchouli notes, our take on this popular eau de toilette seduces all kinds of customers, with zero compromises on scent.

Our Dior Sauvage dupe radiates a fresh, spicy flavor. Aside from the citrus note, you also get a delicious blend of juicy Calabrian bergamot, mandarin notes, and spiced star anise. Outdoorsy and fresh, Aromatic Star Anise (our impression of Dior's Sauvage) expresses strong, unmistakable masculinity.

Dossier Powdery Tobacco Eau de Parfum ($39.00 for 1.7 oz. from Dossier): Inspired by Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille, Dossier really captured the spirit of the original. Having worn Tom Ford's iconic fragrance for many years, I was skeptical that anyone could come close to grasping the complexity of this scent, and yet they have. This is an utterly intoxicating fragrance that is rich, creamy, complex and sensual. The smoky tobacco is warmed up by the creamy vanilla, and it is nothing short of a modern masterpiece, and Dossier was able to convey this with their nod to this iconic fragrance. I live in the original scent every fall and winter, and will happily do the same with Dossier's Powdery Tobacco.

According to Dossier,

Powdery Tobacco (inspired by Tom Ford's Tobacco Vanille) sublimates the unique scent of tobacco leaves. Fruity and sweet honey facets of tobacco are highlighted, and lit up by a touch of ginger. Then, the fragrance unfolds at the base for more depth thanks to vanilla, tonka bean, and gourmand notes of dry fruit and cacao.

Opulent, highly qualitative, and assertive, Powdery Tobacco (our impression of Tom Ford's Tobacco Vanille) perfectly reinvents the cozy atmosphere of the lounge in a London club. 

This is a distinct scent that compels, seduces, and mesmerizes. Plus, it is stylish and adaptable enough to meet the needs of both men and women. Delve into the most adventurous roots of love as top notes of tobacco leaf and spice massage your olfactories. Release your inherent verve as middle notes of vanilla, cacao, and tonka bean imbue you with youthfulness. Receive inspiring visions of glacier-carved cliffs and granite hills as base notes of dried fruits and woody notes tease your senses.

Our Tom Ford’s Tobacco Vanille dupe channels the spirits of tobacco leaves, vanilla, tonka bean, dry fruit, and cacao into a fragrance that permeates you with cherub-like exuberance. Taste the sweetness of budding florals and aromatic petals as this bouquet spices up your mood. Powdery Tobacco is your best choice if you wish to revel in the fruity and sweet honey facets of tobacco.

Dossier Citrus Neroli Eau de Parfum ($39.00 for 1.7 oz. from Dossier): Inspired by Tom Ford Neroli Portofino, this fetching fragrance embodies the DNA of the original– a fact to which I can attest given that I have worn the original for many years. The citrus top notes are tempered by warmth of the amber and musk base notes, and the result is an alluring fresh and modern scent that is breathtakingly beautiful. I usually wear the original scent in the summer and spring, and it gives me such great pleasure. I will happily do the same with Dossier's Citrus Neroli.

According to Dossier,

Citrus Neroli (inspired by Tom Ford's Neroli Portofino) lifts traditional Cologne structure up, mixing armfuls of effervescent, fizzing citrus notes. In this fragrance, association of musk and neroli (distilled orange blossom) brings a pure cleanness sensation, also carrying softness and long lastingness to the sparkling freshness.

Directly inspired by the smells and sensations of the Italian Riviera, Citrus Neroli (our impression of Tom Ford's Neroli Portofino) combines freshness and warmth. Hidden behind an apparent simplicity, the beauty of this complex construction can make it surprisingly addictive, though.

Inspired by the rich citrusy scent of neroli – a flower lending its name from the Italian Riviera, Neroli Portofino in the Tom Ford collection calls to mind the unique olfactory properties of its eponym – fresh, honeyed, and full of floral luxury. The fragrance stands out from other brands, transporting you to a blissful stroll amidst lemon trees and myrtle bushes, with the wonderful smell of verdant foliage lingering in the crisp hot air of a summer’s day.
