You Will Need to Shell Out Quite a Bit of Money if You Wish to Smell Like a Champion – `10 Crore to be Exact! Intrigued? Then Check Out This Extravagantly Lavish Perfume!
Although the record for the world’s most expensive perfume was previously held by the Clive Christian No.1 Collection, that is now going to change. A new, ultra-luxurious perfume has entered the competition and has managed to bump the Clive Christian No.1 Collection to the second number. A perfumer in Dubai has launched Shumukh – meaning ‘deserving the highest’ and this perfume comes with a hefty, jaw-dropping price tag as well. We’re talking millions; 1.295 million US dollars to be exact, for an ounce.
The Spirit of Dubai Parfums by Nabeel, a prestigious brand having many super-exclusive fragrances under its docket, has not spared any expense this time either. Shumukh was born out of a collaboration with the best masters in the world and is an unrivalled tribute to Dubai in the fragrance world. The bottle showcases the seven key elements of pearl diving (Durra), falconry (Baz), Arabian Horses (Abjar), roses (Narjesi), luxury (Haibah), Arabian hospitality (Diwan), and finally, Dubai’s stature as a ‘City of the Future’ – Aamal. All these have been intricately modelled in gold and silver and have the highest quality diamonds and precious stones, all of which have the option to be customised.
Price: Approx. Rs. 10 Crore/Ounce
An epitome of luxury, it took over 3 years and 494 perfume trials to formulate the fragrance. The lavishly over-the-top Italian Murano crystal bottle holds 3 litres of perfume and is set with 3,571 IGI and GIA-certified sparkling diamonds, topaz, pearls, 2479.26 grams of 18 karat gold, and 5892.88 grams pure silver. The bottle has already earned two Guinness World Records: for the most diamonds set on a perfume bottle as well as being the tallest, commercially available, remote-controlled fragrance spray bottle.
The perfume is an amalgamation of the finest natural ingredients sourced from the furthest corners of the globe resulting in a scent that is as unique, and unforgettable as it is luxurious and hypnotic. Comprising notes of amber, sandalwood, musk, rare pure Indian agarwood, pure Turkish rose, patchouli ylang-ylang, and frankincense, the scent is estimated to last on the skin for more than 12 hours.
What makes it rarer and more desirable, is that there is currently only one bottle of this available in the world. We wish you luck if you want to acquire this luxurious and mesmerising fragrance.
