If you think finding the perfect pair of summer wedges is hard, try searching for a new perfume. The options are overwhelming, the department store choices are too popular, and the prices? Don’t get us started. We just want something that isn’t expensive and that no one else is wearing.

That's why we're recommending Olfactif to everyone we know. For just $18 a month, subscribers get a collection of three niche fragrance samples in an elegant gift box. Many of the perfumes aren't available at traditional department stores and beauty counters, since Olfactif only works with perfume artists who use exotic, high-quality, and rare ingredients.

“Most people who wear and love scent are bored with the trendy, mainstream perfumes they smell everywhere,” said Olfactif founder Tara Swords. “They also want to support artists who do creative and original work, but they didn’t know those kinds of artists exist in the perfume world.”

We were lucky enough to sample the April box last month, and we just can’t get enough of L’Artisan Parfumeur’s Voleur de Roses, a scent inspired by a collision of nature: the beauty of a rose garden and the destructive forces of a thunderstorm. Consider us completely obsessed.
