Clive Christian No. 1 - Most Expensive Perfume

Clive Christian No. 1 is currently the most expensive perfume available commercially. Made in UK, the 1 oz bottle costs around $2300, which is due to the fine, rare, and downright exotic ingredients it contains. An extravagant and complex bouquet of precious Indian jasmine, mandarin and sandalwood. The bottle is handmade of rare lead crystal with the neck being a 24-karat gold-plated sterling silver, stamped with unique hallmarks and set with a brilliant-cut diamond solitaire. The stopper is fashioned after the original design granted by Queen Victoria.

1n 2005, British designer-turned-perfumer Clive Christian, poured 16.9 ounces of No. 1 into a Baccarat crystal bottle, stuck a five-carat diamond into the 18-carat gold collar and unveiled it at Harrods in London and Bergdorf Goodman in New York City. This limited edition was named Imperial Majesty and costs $215,000 a bottle! Only five bottles were released for sale.
