The house of Armaf is a fragrance house that is best known for its close resemblance to the more popular, expensive fragrances. Although not all of their fragrances are modeled after a popular, expensive fragrance, many do bear a striking resemblance.
The House Of Armaf
The house of Armaf is a relatively new one. They launched their first fragrance in 2015, and now they have over 100 fragrances.
Armaf is best known for creating some great clones of very popular and expensive fragrances. They made their own version of fragrances like Creed Aventus, Creed Green Irish Tweed, Bleu De Chanel, and Tom Ford Noir De Noir.
Besides the fact that many fragrances share a striking resemblance to very popular fragrances, Armaf has also created a bunch of their own, unique fragrances. They even opened a new line, called Armaf Niche.
Armaf Niche is a pretty small line, consisting of 4 men’s fragrances and 4 women’s fragrances. These fragrances are all very nice and still very affordable, like all Armaf fragrances.
