    Amazing, never in my wildest dreams could imagine spending that much on a fragrance.
    Still, would love to try them all and see what they can do.

    Has anyone here tried them, share any impressions? Thank you.

    That is an insane amount to be charging for the packaging and branding.

    i also doubt that is that good smelling. Just marketing issues. The high price makes it a musthave i guess ^^

    From a business perspective, this way you only have to sell a few to have a good year.

    oh that is crazy. But its gone past being perfume and is probably more in the market of gifts millionaires give to their mistresses. Would be interested to know how much it costs to make the actual fragrance.

    If packaging is equally or more important than the content, these two bottles might be the right purchases

    When I look at some of the Xerjoff bottles in the Shooting Stars collection with the golden engravings of human figures, etc, they always look like something off the cover of an Ayn Rand paperback.

    Bottles such as the Muranos are for a different world of collectors - it's not that 'they're crazy', it's just that the scale of value, costs, rarity, etc. are totally different from those of perfume.

    I would never pay that much for a company called "Jerk off".

    Wow!

    I own Encre Noire, and if I'm not mistaken, you can buy it in a special bottle for like $700.00 or something. It's just too rich for my blood.

    But, why does anybody pay more than let's say about 50$ for a years worth of juice? It isn't by no means justified! Except ... ?!

    And there are so many here at Basenotes that think Bond No.9 and Creed are expensive!!! I will probably never have the amount of money needed to purchase something like these!!!

    Why don't they just sell the bottle as a work of art instead of selling it as a fragrance? For $12,000 you could at least buy a really nice watch or invest in something that's going to appreciate in value.

    I seriously can't read Xerjoff without interpreting it as Jerkoff.

    And I think the most expensive perfume in the world is technically this.
