We’ve compiled a list of the top 10 World’s most expensive perfumes, with number one hitting a price tag of $1 million dollars! For that price this perfume better last a lifetime! The top perfumes are created by famous designers and experienced perfumiers who are able to sell their concoctions based off their name alone. Our list of expensive perfumes range from a few hundred dollars to hundreds of thousands. What makes these products so expensive? Many of the bottles are crafted with jewels, gold, or crystal- meaning you’re paying for the bottle rather than the smell. Others contain extremely rare ingredients that are costly or hard to find. Then there are those that are sold in very limited quantities. All of these factor into the expensive pricing.
First, a little history on perfume…
While a spray of perfume may only last a few hours, there are still those who are willing to put down a hefty amount all in the name of beauty. The origin of perfume started with the Ancient Egyptians and the first factory can be traced back all the way to 2,000 BC. A few hundred years ago, perfumes were a luxury few could afford and only the upper class had access to them. The Royal families immediately took a liking to these luxury fragrances. Queen Elizabeth required every public place to be scented and many ladies in England began to create their own perfume.
While smelling good is a hygienic practice every person can agree on, some of us like to splurge just a little more for a few ounces of cologne…. maybe even a few thousand dollars more! If you’ve been to Sephora or any make up store then you know there are HUNDREDS of fragrances to choose from. If you thought spending upwards of $100 bucks on an ounce was a splurge, you’re going to be in for a shock! Read about the World’s high-priced fragrances that only the elite dare to wear!
