About us

Passionate about everything perfume related, Necessities is all about taking time to find the right fragrance for the right person. By combining a beautiful selection of high quality brands, a great amount of knowledge and an eagerness to help, we accompany the customer in his or her quest for a perfect fragrance.

With thirty years of experience and three generations of perfume expertise, Necessities has been on the forefront of fine perfumery for a long time.

Originally opened in 1983 by Suzanne Bocxtaele, Necessities was one of the very first points of sale to offer brands such as Creed, L’Artisan Parfumeur and Annick Goutal. Today, the store is run by her daughter Cathy and grandson Maxime, who have built upon this knowhow and continue to offer the very best of artistic, niche and haute perfumery.
