Dossier doesn’t just make natural perfumes – they do delicious perfume dupes, too!
By Bec Gregory
Perfume is known to improve mood, boost confidence, ignite passion, and leaves a lasting impression. Reflecting who you are, perfume is highly personal, and lots of us agree that we don’t feel quite right leaving the house without it. I mean, who doesn’t love receiving “you smell amazing” compliments?
A key element in the art of seduction, perfume has the power to captivate with its intriguing and provocative scent. Additionally, in a matter of seconds, its aroma can transport us to another time and place, infusing our daily lives with a dose of magic. No wonder perfume has fascinated people for centuries!
However, it can be difficult to find vegan and eco-friendly perfume brands that don’t cost a fortune. But we’ve found a perfume house that caught our attention for all the right reasons! It’s ethical, expertly blended, superior quality ingredients, clean, 100% vegan, and a price tag that doesn’t break the bank.
Meet Dossier, they create luxury perfumes and perfume dupes at affordable price.
Their collections are inspired by famous fragrances. For example, their sensual, yet playful scent Floral Marshmallow is inspired by Kilian’s Love, Don’t Be Shy.
That perfume retails for a whopping $240, but you can bag Dossier’s for just $39! And believe us, it is an exact replica. Their Parisian nose (perfume artist) is on point.
Because Dossier makes their fragrances with the same quality ingredients, their staying power is just as good. In fact, they use higher concentrations than most famous brands to ensure a lasting effect.
They craft scents for women and men, as well as unisex fragrances. And they make candles, too, yay! They’ve taken dupes to the next level.
A Fine French Touch
Dossier brings that all-important French touch to their fragrances. Their formulations are made in Grasse, a city on the French Riviera, known as the world’s perfume capital. It’s here where all the world’s most premium perfumes are created.
Dossier is serious about scent, but unlike traditional luxury perfume houses, they place ethics and accessibility at the centre of their work.
Obsessed with perfume but unenchanted by the industry charging a fortune for fragrances, Dossier made it their mission to make luxury formulations accessible to all by creating a premium brand without the high prices. But they didn’t stop there, Dossier was determined to be a force for good, and they went ALL IN by building a brand that’s clean, green, and cruelty-free.
Sustainability is a core value that drives the brand. Their aesthetically pleasing perfume bottles are made of 100% recyclable glass, and their boxes are created from 100% recycled and recyclable corrugated cardboard.
They even ditched their 20ml plastic sample bottles, known to boost brand awareness and sales in a move to become as plastic-free as possible. The only plastic they use is their recyclable spray caps. And of course, Dossier perfume dupes are not at all toxic, unlike the brands they emulate.
Every order you make with Dossier is risk-free; you can order up to 5 scents at a time and try each fragrance before committing to the purchase, simply return the fragrances that aren’t a match for you within 30 days for a full refund, no questions asked. What’s more, they donate their returned products to charity, creating an entirely eco-friendly and ethical sales process that reduces waste and benefits those in need.
Valuing diversity, their team is spread across three continents, bringing together different perspectives from across the globe. They also view their customers as an essential part of their team, welcoming suggestions and responding quickly by formulating fragrances based on what their customers love.
The Layering Set
At such an accessible price point, Dossier is the perfect brand to start experimenting with layering by wearing more than one of their fragrances at the same time to create your own unique scents.
Looking for a way to blend Dossier perfume dupes to be even more unique? They recommend combining their version of Creed’s Aventus and Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle to create a ‘sweet and flirty’ third scent.
Or, try mixing their version of Chanel’s Chance Eau Tendre and Jo Malone’s English Pear and Freesia for a ‘deep and sensual’ combination.
And when you buy more, you save more! Buy any three items for 10% off, four for 15% off and five+ for 20% off. If you join The Dossier Club, you’ll earn points every time you shop for money off your subsequent purchases. Paying with Catch will get you 10% store credit. And if you refer a friend, they’ll get $10 store credit, and so will you; start spreading the word!
How They Cut Costs – Not Quality
The high markup on designer brand perfume outraged the creators of Dossier enough to do something about it. You might be thinking, how can they make their products so affordable? Firstly, you don’t have to pay for a designer brand name on the bottle, and by eliminating unnecessary packaging and advertising, they can put all their focus on the quality of the fragrance. Transparency is one of Dossier’s core values; they share honest information about the industry and products, the sourcing of their ingredients and their pricing; in their words, there’s ‘no smoke and mirrors’.
