Senteurs D'Ailleurs is located in Brussels and on their website they define themselves as being "neither a straightforward perfumery, nor a concept store, Senteurs D'Ailleurs presents itself like an unique jewel case in order to open itself to a rare and exclusive olfactory universe. In other words [it is ] the alternative perfumery of the third millenium."
