Meet the best female perfume creators you need to know about
At Sniph we believe that perfume is an extension of you, and should tell your unique story, empower you and provide you with a boost of confidence. To us, perfume has no gender. It is all about YOU. But the creators behind them are varied and many. To celebrate International Women’s Day – we want to shed light on the passionate female creators behind some of the brands that are changing the perfume game. These are the women you need to know about.
