    Exclamation The Most Expensive Perfume In The World - You Have To See To Believe This!



    Starts around the 4:00 mark.

    Hint: It's from Spirit of Dubai, but the whole "presentation" is so over the top! $1.6 MILLION.

    The perfume equivalent of skyscraper penis envy. Pointless, embarrassing, gaudy.

    This is not most expensive perfume, its most expensive presentation.
    I as well doubt perfume itself is really good.
    They have too much spare cash

    I recall someone posting a different video of that same fragrance before.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Exactly!

    Something similar to this:
    Ordered directly from Speiron, Lambda (olive oil) costs US $54 per bottle or US $200 in a special gift box.
    For the truly extravagant, Speiron offers a bespoke, hand-crafted case with two 18k gold plates—one of which, along with the bottle, bears the owner’s name—for a price of US $14,698.
    I'm also buying olive oil from a Grecce brand (from Crete, more precisely) - 11$/liter (55$/a 5 liter tin can). The best I've found.

    Thank you for sharing.
    Would have normally guessed that, no matter how expensive the perfume, at most the hundreds of thousands mark (EUR/GBP/USD per bottle) will be reached.
    But never thought/guessed that the almost psychological of one million EUR/GBP/USD per bottle never exceeded-expensive presentation, all taxes paid, VIP delivery etc. already included in the price.

    They didn't create that perfume especially to sell it.
    Obviously they will not be upset if they sell 1-2-5 pieces. But first of all, they did it to make sensation, to make the brand known.

    -----

    Once, an Asian jewelry brand had created a diamond-encrusted sleigh worth $20 million.
    I really doubt anyone bought it. But they were certainly talked about, the sleigh has been featured in various TV shows, they probably display it at numerous exhibitions, it appeared in their booklet, and so on.
    After a while they could have removed the diamonds, and the platinum could have been melted and reused.

    Not impressed, price doesn’t equal a quality fragrance. Hell one that you would even enjoy this hobby is subjective one mans treasure is another mans disappointment.

    Never noticed before, but this is actually listed on Fragrantica. One person voted it as a great value while the only other vote was way overpriced, lol.

    That manchild owner of the company voted it as "great value". I think for fragrances like this there should be "pfffff" category as well

    This is very similar to a setup I saw at CVS over the weekend. Except the one I saw sprayed Jovan Musk.

    Off topic, but since these guys are in Dubai, I recently found out just how much money people there have. They go into bidding wars to acquire rare license plates, to use them on their cars so that people know who they are.. basically, for publicity. I read a guy there spent 9 million dollars to buy the license plate with just the number "1" on it.

    More money than sense, I suppose. Feeding fragile egos with $ that could potentially save thousands of lives elsewhere.

    It's probably a matter of time before something else replaces it with something more expensive.

    Well, it depends...

    There are 2,000 billionaires, tens of thousands of people who have hundreds of millions $, and many many people who have tens of millions of dollars.
    There would be enough people who would afford such a perfume. In mean, there are plenty of people who lose millions in the casino. So, yeah...
    But it's not that simple. It's important if they will be able to produce enough sensation with this fragrance.

    Take Bugatti, for example. They decided to produce a $ 2 million hypercar. They were pioneers in this field. No one had ever produced such expensive cars before.
    They knew very well that there were enough rich people who could afford such a car. Other companies also knew this. But Bugatti was the one who managed to produce a car that would fascinate, that stired everyone's interest, not just the rich.
    They produced a mechanical marvel, a technical jewel - Veyron. It was a hype and they become a trendsetter. After that, many companies also began to produce expensive hypercars.
    Many people loved hypercars. Many of them were wealthy. But it was Bugatti who knew how to take money from the rich, setting a precedent - yeah, it's perfectly fine to give millions for a car.

    It remains to be seen if this perfume will manage to produce such a hype, like Bugatti produced with their Veyron.
    It was a little easier for Bugatti (yeah, it's easy to say )), simply because the hypercars was alway the traditional penis extension, many have a fetish with them. It's much easier to brag and project wealth with a car.

    I'm curious how many such perfumes they will manage to sell.
