Scentrique, a Canadian online niche perfume retailer opens its first location downtown Vancouver


Vancouver, BC – August 20, 2020: Since its inception in 2019, Scentrique has proven itself as the go-to place for niche perfumes and perfume samples in Western Canada, so it was only a matter of time before it would have to open a brick-and-mortar location.

“While we love serving our customers remotely and provide them with an opportunity to test niche fragrances at the comfort of their own home, many of our local clients kept asking for a physical space where they could visit and enjoy in-person sampling experience,” says Irina Novak-Calki, co-founder of Scentrique. “Opening a brick-and-mortar store was always our goal, however COVID-19 pandemic has delayed our plan. We are happy to finally open our doors to the public and bring a piece of Europe to Vancouver, and a good-smelling one!”

Niche perfume is a relatively new concept for Canadians. A niche perfume is the opposite of a mass-produced designer or celebrity fragrance. It’s a form of art, inspired by emotions, memories or culture. Often hand-crafted and made with rare, quality and hard to find ingredients and therefore exclusive. Niche fragrances are produced on a much smaller scale, often by the perfumer themselves in a private lab. “At Scentrique, our mission is to introduce Canadians to niche fragrances from all over the world and educate our customers and the public about different niche perfume houses, ingredients used in perfumes, production process, and other things related to perfumery,” says Novak-Calki.

A social distant celebration will take place over the Labour Day long weekend to ensure the safety of its customers and staff. Strict cleaning protocols and limiting the number of people in store will be in place.

Besides perfumes and colognes, Scentrique also offers scented candles, home fragrances and scented body care. So if you are not into wearing perfume, but like your home to smell nice and unique, then it’s a destination for you too.

Grand opening will take place from September 3 to 7, 2020 at 466 Granville Street in Vancouver. Customers will enjoy treats, gifts with purchase and special discounts.
