A good perfume reflects not just your personality but is also a fashion statement. The price of a perfume depends on many factors like quality of raw material used to make it, brand promoting the perfume, expensive ornaments like platinum/diamond studded on the bottle, limited edition stock among others.
It is popularly believed that Scent is one of our strongest senses and a perfect aroma will indeed make a bold statement in the mind of people which is implausible to forget. Keeping all these things in mind, here are the world’s most expensive perfumes for your perusal.
Below is the list of the 10 most expensive perfumes in the world.
1. Shumukh is Shumukh’s
Shumukh perfume is the most expensive perfume in the world, costing $1.29 million. Shumukh is noted for having the most diamonds placed on a perfume bottle and the tallest remote-controlled fragrance spray product in the Guinness World Records. The Armani Ballroom of the Burj Khalifa served as the venue for the debut in Dubai. Asghar Adam Ali, the chairman of the Nabeel Perfumes organization and a notable master perfumer, created it.
Shumukh contains Indian agarwood, sandalwood, musk, Turkish rose, and a variety of other components that the firm does not reveal to the public. On human skin, its aroma lasts for more than 12 hours, and on fabric, it lasts for roughly 30 days. There is currently only one bottle available, making it a rare and exquisite perfume that will appreciate in value over time.
2. DKNY Golden Delicious
DKNY Golden Delicious, which formerly held the title of “World’s Most Expensive Perfume,” is now in second place this year.
