    Default Re: If money were no object, what expensibe bottle would you buy?

    I would buy the entire Chanel Exclusif line and give away the Cuir to a leather loving friend.

    Then I'd grab a bottle of Cruel Gardenia.

    And I will join the stampede for the heavenly Apres l' Ondee parfum.....

    Ask me next week or next month and the answer may vary.....

    Those Guerlian bottles are SO tempting.

    I decided I could buy ONE Guerlain parfum in Paris, and I swear I selected this from my short list b/c
    a) there was no Apres l'ondee parfum to buy
    b)I could not resist the bottle

    [And yes, I bought it!] [And yes, that is one GUERLAIN PARFUM--I did go to other perfume shops]

    I second the trip to Paris. I would clean out Serge Lutens and buy up all the non-export bell jars (maybe TWO of La Myrrhe), and hit up Guerlain for every single fragrance I can't find on the internet! That's all. Really.
    But if I was going to all that effort, let me add: searching for vintage bottles of:
    Ma Griffe, Cabochard, Jolie Madam, Miss Dior, Chypre, and would certainly not turn down any vintage bottles I would come across.

    I think he makes more than 50 bottles of each, but it is limited to a certain number of customers.

    a bottle is 250 ml and 1000 pounds.


    Keep your eye out for bottle splits, the bottles themselves of Roja Dove for these scents are very basic so if you don't get the original bottle you are not missing out much.
    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    Caron Poivre in the Baccarat bottle:



    OR

    A perfume created just for me by Neil Morris.

    How about both?

    Well, I could list a few possibilities but the most unattainable would be a bottle of Quand Vient la Pluie parfum.

    Default Re: If money were no object, what expensive bottle would you buy?

    I would re-sniff Djedi and probably go with that, once I could find it.

    Other wishlist items out of price reach right now are: Malle Iris Poudrée and Une Fleur de Cassie, and Lutens Iris Silver Mist... and a repurchase of Angélique Encens.

    Thanks, Lian. What a wonderful idea. I would jump at the opportunity. It would be like buying a part share in a race horse. Wow!

    Ooh yes, that's a lovely one, and that line doesn't come cheap.

    Anyone fancy a top of the range Clive Christian? There appear to be five going begging!

    Imperial Majesty Limited Edition
    The single most expensive bottle of Clive Christian No.1 is labeled “Imperial Majesty,” a limited edition. Imperial Majesty is available in a heavy Baccarat crystal bottle with a 5-carat solitaire diamond set in its collar and has a value of around $200,000 per ounce. Only 10 have ever been made – 5 of which have been put in Clive Christian’s personal collection.

    I'll buy a female relative of mine, a female friend, colleague or significant other a limited edition Baccarat crystal bottle of Shalimar, also Joy by Jean Patou or a vintage (hard to find, almost auction-value) Creed

    Promesse de l'aube. One of the best perfumes I've sampled in a long time. And unfortunately in the silly price range.

    Also Farouche parfum and a selection of Guerlain pure perfumes; Shalimar, Mitsouko and maybe others.

    With my husband still not working, almost everything is out of my price range right now.

    Just in case I win the lottery soon, I do have a list:

    Creed Vintage Tabarome
    Morgane Le Fay Blue (I can't believe the price increase on this just recently! $180 for 50ml)
    Chanel #22
    Nasomatto China White
    Cuiron
    SL bell jars of: MKK, Cuir Mauresque, and Santal de Mysore
    SL export bottles of: Chene, Un Bois Vanille, Fleurs d'Oranger, Daim Blond, Douce Amere
    POTL Luctor et Emergo
    several by Mazzolari and Profumum


    That should get me started ...
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    Me, what did I do? Sorry I helped you to try something that can become mania, Djedi. It was costly enough that I can not think of anything to add on to this thread.
    Maybe a Lutens bell jar, but that is reasonable compared to Djedi.

    If Money where no object I would commission my very own fragrance something with honeysuckles and oakmoss *perfect*

    If it was supposed to be just one bottle, it would be undoubtedly Chergui by Serge Lutens.
    If more, I would add Daim Blond - SL again.

    I'd go to TOWN over some vintage extrait bottles of just about everything from Guerlain and Chanel. I'd get some Feminite de Bois extrait as well. I'm on a kick right now of insane craving for pure parfum. Suddenly, those nice big bottles of EdT spray just leave me wanting more......

    I would, without hesitation, track down and buy every single bottle, mini and vial of Patou Pour Homme.

    I would then sit atop my lofty Patou Empire in olfactory bliss, never to be heard from again.
