Dossier Overview

Dossier is San Francisco based brand that introduce the concept making premium fragrances accessible for everyone. The fragrances are know for using quality and better ingredient at a fraction of the price. Most fragrances are very expensive and some time it really hard to get your hands on your favorite scents because of the price. I know for myself buying luxury was not high on my to get list because of the cost. Dropping $100 or $200 on most iconic perfume was not prority. Don’t get me wrong I love buying my favorite perfumes such as CHANEL and Jo Malone London. However my pockets prevent me from always So, yes I hop on Dossier when I heard this I could get luxury like perfumes to my brand favorites. And it affordable too.

My favorite scents that I reach for all the time is the Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt and the other being Coco Mademosielle CHANEL. I am fan of clean scent or fruity scents.


Dossier comes in minimalist 50 mL sleek bottle that share the exact ingredients that are use to get the fragrances you love so much. The brands offer estimate of 70 fragrances starting at $29. The use of clean, natural ingredients. The brands offer fragrances from woody, floral, oriental, and musk. In addition, available in unisex, feminine, and masculine scents. Each fragrances mimics well know fragrances. Lastly, the product is mail to you in well snugged box for protection while being shipped. Please note, that some fragrances may come with sample size to smell before indulging.

What I Got from Dossier

So I mention the luxury fragrances I have in my arsenal, which are Coco Mademoiselle and Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt. I purchase two scent from Dossier that are suppose to be virtually the same as the iconic fragrances.

Woody Sage

This fragrances is inspired by Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt and known as Woody Sage. This is such a calming, clean, and breezy scent. The smell is spot on to the original, with small difference. The potency is not the same.

You can get this fragrances for $29 compare to starting price of $100 from Jo Malone. This scent comes in a 50ml bottle. I think it so worth the buying, it long lasting and really mimics the original.

My plan is to hold on to my Jo Malone for special occasion for the accurate and potent scent. Then use my Dossier for everyday use. I wont feel pressure to run out to re up on my original scent

Oriental Oakmoss

Now for Oriental Oakmoss, this scent is suppose to mimic the iconic Coco CHANEL Mademosielle perfume. Now, let be clear this is my favorite scent to wear for date night, or when I need a uplift in life. Oriental Oakmoss smells so much like the original and it is also long lasting.

This is scent very exotic, and mysterious. I am in love with this scent. This comes in a 50 ml bottle for $29.

Again, my plan is use my original scent for special occasions and use the Dossier for everyday use, or when I feel mysterious.
