The World’s Most Expensive Perfume

Clive Christian
In 1999 British designer Clive Christian acquired The Crown Perfumery, a celebrated British perfume house established in London in 1872. The Company obtained its name because it had been granted the use of the crown by Queen Victoria as a mark of quality and excellence. Inspired by its rich history and the old formulae, Clive Christian was to create a new level of luxury perfumes. Perfumes with natural ingredients that would blend the traditional with the rare and exotic! Perfumes for Women that were complementary to Perfumes for Men. The ultimate in British luxury.

It is available in limited quantity by year due to the extravagance and rarity of its ingredients namely: ylang ylang, gentle Tahitian vanilla, pineapple, plum, mirabelle, white peach, rose, jasmine, orris, carnation, benjoin balm, tonka seeds and Indian sandalwood.

The delicate fragrance takes approximately six months to crystallize until it has reached its desired stage of spiciness. Save your pennies and enjoy every cent of this decadent scent!

If you feel like treating yourself, you can purchase a 30ml bottle for $350, a 50 ml for $735 or if you really feel like rewarding yourself, you can buy 1oz of Clive Christian # 1 for a mere $2,350.  Elton John went a step further and splurged on a Custom designed Bottle for $215,000!  I don’t know about you Mavens but I will be wearing all 3 of his fragrances, a different one everyday and reapplying at least 2 times a day… that’s right, i’ll be using the tester at work daily!

  2. I am crazy about Clive Christian X, but I have not splurged on a bottle of it yet. However, I am sure one day I will cave in and do it.
