Imagine a perfume with a creamy sandalwood base, a heart of warm clove, aromatic musk, lush vanilla, and lively vetiver, and polished off with bergamot, mandarin, soothing ylang-ylang, and honeyed neroli. Sounds lovely, right? Now imagine paying $12,058 per ounce for it! That is how Clive Christian describes its No. 1 Imperial Majesty perfume, which holds the Guinness World Record for the most expensive perfume in the world. It is encased in an exquisite polished crystal bottle with a 18 carat gold and five carat white diamond collar.
Only 10 bottles have ever been made; seven of the bottles were snatched up by private collectors and the other three tour the world as a crowning jewel in Clive Christian’s special collection. This infographic explores the most expensive fragrances of all time. You will discover opulent perfumes that contain the oil of 10,000 jasmine flowers, bottles spilling with diamonds and jewels, and other jaw-dropping aromatic creations.
