|What is Imperial Majesty - the World's Most Expensive Perfume of All Time
|Clive Christian No. 1 Imperial Majesty
The primary reason why people started wearing perfumes was to keep away unpleasant body odors and to smell fresh. However, over the years, the usage of perfumes has changed from merely offering fragrances to being associated with sophistication. Perfumes are generally expensive and prices of the high-end ones are worth thousands per bottle.
10. JAR Bolt of Lightning - USD 765 per ounce
Joseph Arthur Rosenthal, an American jeweler based in Paris whose work has been compared to that of Faberge, is responsible for creating JAR. The company has become well-known for its one-of-a-kind line of perfumes, the most well-known of which is Bolt of Lightning.
The perfume is heavily floral because it uses ingredients like tuberose and other Oriental flowers. Keeping with the tradition of the brand, the bottle is exquisitely hand-cut; this is perhaps the most striking aspect of the product.
9. Joy by Jean Patou - USD 850 per ounce
Joy is a luxurious fragrance by the well-known house of Jean Patou. To create this fragrance, twice as much of each ingredient was used as is customarily used when making a fragrance. The perfume was made with 10,000 jasmine flowers and 28 dozens of roses.
8. Caron Poivre - USD 1,000 per ounce
Fragrances and Perfumes One of France's most venerable perfume houses, Caron has been around since the 1830s. Founded in that year, 1904, Caron Poivre, the company's namesake fragrance, wasn't created until 1954. Poivre's stunning bottle was made by Baccarat, while Caron bottles were usually designed by Ernest Daltroff's business partner. Its signature scent features strong spicy undertones, and it's carried by a limited number of retailers worldwide.
7. Hermes 24 Faubourg - USD 1,500 per ounce
Given that only a thousand bottles of Hermès 24 Faubourg were produced, it is no surprise that it is one of the priciest fragrances available. It's a medley of scents, but it has its own distinctive aroma. Flavors of orange blossom, jasmine, tiare flower, patchouli, ylang-ylang, vanilla, ambergris, sandalwood, and iris can be detected.
6. Clive Christian No.1 - USD 2,150 per ounce
This perfume is created by one of the high-end perfume designers and creators of the world, Clive Christian. The perfume was launched in 2001 and 2006 and is available in two fragrances- Oriental for men and Floral for women.
5. Chanel Grand Extrait - USD 4,200 per ounce
Chanel Grand Extrait, developed by Coco Chanel and perfumer Ernest Beaux in 1921, has an illustrious history in the niche fragrance industry. The bottle's design is a work of art in and of itself, deceiving the viewer with an apparently straightforward appearance that belies a deeper level of sophistication.
4. Baccarat Les Larmes Sacree de Thebes - USD 6,800 per ounce
This is the third-most expensive fragrance by Baccarat. This perfume, which comes in a crystal pyramid bottle, is one of three special edition perfume scents. Fragrances of frankincense and myrrh make up the perfume.
3. Clive Christian No. 1 Imperial Majesty - USD 12,722 per ounce
Clive Christian, creator of the third most expensive perfume in the world, appears on this list for the second time. The perfume has a blend of rose oil, jasmine, and Tahitian vanilla that was created by renowned British perfumer Roja Dove. The bottle's design is fitting for its moniker, as evidenced by the 18-karat gold and 5-carat diamond collar.
2. DKNY Golden Delicious - USD 1 million
Once the most expensive perfume in the world, this Golden Delicious range limited edition is one of a kind and has been surpassed this year. The perfume was created to benefit "Action Against Hunger," and all sales will go to that organization.
The bottle was crafted by master jewelers who spent over 1,500 hours carefully setting 2,909 gems, including 2,700 white diamonds, 183 yellow sapphires, a Cabochon sapphire from Sri Lanka, a turquoise Paraiba tourmaline from Brazil, four rose-cut diamonds, and fifteen pink diamonds from Australia.
1. Shumukh - USD 1.29 million
Unveiled in March at the Burj Khalifa's Armani Ballroom, Shumukh is a stunning blend of ingredients like Indian agarwood, sandalwood, musk, Turkish rose, and several others. Asghar Adam Ali, a renowned perfumer from Dubai, conceived of the scent. Featuring a leather display case nearly 2 meters in height, the packaging is an artwork unto itself, opening to reveal a bottle emblazoned with emblems of UAE culture.
The base is decorated with three gold Arabian thoroughbreds and three silver clamshells, each of which holds a genuine pearl. A miniature globe with gold continents and three beautiful roses in pink gold and diamond dust round out the set. From the base, three marble pillars ascend to a golden dome topped with a gold falcon encrusted with diamonds. There is, of course, only a single bottle in existence, so it is extremely rare and will grow in value over time.
