One of the world’s renowned designers, Clive Christian is known for his gorgeous and very stylish kitchens.

This same sense of style has apparently translated quite well to the world of perfumes with the release of Clive Christian No.1 in 2001. It is available in two scents, one for men and one for women, and comes in a beautifully hand-crafted crystal bottle with a sterling silver neck plated in 24-karat gold.

5.) Chanel Grand Extrait

Created in 1921 through a collaboration between Coco Chanel and perfumer Ernest Beaux, Chanel Grand Extrait holds a very high pedigree in the world of high-end fragrances.

The bottle itself is a masterpiece of design, with a look that appears to be quite simple at first glance but carries with it several layers of artistic complexity.

4.) Baccarat Les Larmes Sacree de Thebes

Price: USD 6,800 per ounce

Known for its crystals for nearly three centuries, Baccarat made its foray into the world of fragrance in the 90s. The result was one of the world’s most expensive perfumes, with only “three bottles” ever released.

It should perhaps come as no surprise that the bottle is one of the key selling points of this fragrance – pyramid-shaped and made of handcrafted crystal with an amethyst cap.

3.) Clive Christian No. 1 Imperial Majesty 

Price: USD 12,722 per ounce

The bottle has a design befitting the name, with a neck made of 18-karat gold and set with a 5-carat diamond.

The most expensive perfume in the world until being dethroned earlier this year, this special edition of the Golden Delicious range is the only one of its kind ever produced.

The perfume has actually a charitable cause, with all proceeds from its sale donated to “Action Against Hunger”.

The result of over 1,500 hours of painstaking work by expert jewelers, the bottle features 2,909 precious stones, including 2,700 white diamonds, 183 yellow sapphires, and a Cabochon sapphire from Sri Lanka, turquoise Paraiba tourmaline from Brazil, plus four rose-cut diamonds and fifteen pink diamonds from Australia.

1.) Shumukh

Price: USD 1.29 million

Unveiled in March at the Armani Ballroom of the Burj Khalifa, Shumukh is a stunning combination of ingredients that includes Indian agarwood, sandalwood, musk, Turkish rose, and several others that have not been publicly disclosed.

It was designed by Dubai master perfumer Asghar Adam Ali. The packaging is a work of art, featuring a leather display case that stands nearly 2 meters high and opens to reveal a bottle that has been adorned with symbols of the UAE’s heritage. 

The base features a trio of gold Arabian thoroughbreds along with three silver clamshells housing a real pearl each. There are also three gorgeous roses in pink gold and diamond dust and a mini globe with gold continents. Three marble pillars rise from the base to a golden dome atop which a diamond-studded gold falcon sits. Needless to say, there is only one bottle currently in existence, making it exceptionally rare and no doubt, will only add to its value as time goes on.
