Most perfume-wearing people are satisfied with a good, memorable scent from a bottle by a trustworthy brand. But some picky scent lovers may find that nature’s raw smells carry more fragrance than any Calvin Klein, Hilfiger or Dior can provide.

 

Elle magazine collected this quirky concoction of smells, from scents that remind you of the forests to those that remind you of your childhood. Here are 10 perfumes you won’t believe really exist:

However unconventional, you may still want to try this moist Earth-y smell for €28. Concocted by Demeter’s perfumer Christopher Brosius, Dirt is an ode to Brosius’ childhood farm. Madonna seems to be a fan of this scent, too.

 

Eau de Gentiane Blanche by Hermès

At €91, Eau de Gentiane Blanche is a difficult scent to describe. Sometimes bitter (thanks to the herby gentian), sometimes smooth (the result of iris), Eau de Gentiane is best worn by those who have tired of flowery scents.

 

Notes: Musk, gentian, iris, frankincense

 

  Tubéreuse Criminelle by Serge Lutens
