    I paid 90usd for only 10ml of Puredistance M.

    The maximum amount of money i think it was 150usd for a sealed Antaeus Sport 100ml (discontinued since the early 90s)

    € 210,= x5 on 5 bottles of Les Exclusifs by Chanel the previous year.
    And the first one (Coromandel) is nearly finished!
    Will replace it right away though: it´s the most addictive thing I´ve ever come across.

    The most costly perfume (per ml) is the one you buy but don't use.

    The $65 bottle that I ended up spraying a couple of times and then giving away cost me more per ml than any of my other fragrances, and cured me of buying blind.

    A toss up with A Taste of Heaven 50 ml for $225 plus tax or Epic Man 100 ml, which I got on sale for $232. So I guess by volume, the By Kilian wins.

    Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab......I have two 1ml decants that I paid around $15 each for. Shub-Niggurath (back when it was much sought after and rare, before they brought it back to their catalogue), and Pumpkin King. And half my Pumpkin King has leaked out over the years. : (

    After those, Bois des Iles parfum is the next most expensive I have, $175 for half an oz.

    I dropped a little over $250 for Amouge's Jubilation XXV. I haven't found much that I'd pay more for, though since Hedonist mentioned Grossmith, it rekindled my interest. I'll have to see if I can find some samples though.
