More limited edition collector fragrance bottles, with the usual disclaimers: in most of these cases, the juice is unchanged, just the bottle is “special” (or not, as the case may be), and some of these may not be available in the US.
From Jean Paul Gaultier, the 2012 Gladiator collector edition of Le Mâle, wearing the armor of the Roman gladiators. In 125 ml Eau de Toilette. (via blog.cosma-parfumeries)
From Givenchy, Play in the Arty Color Edition, which you can customize with stickers by graffiti artist André. Due to launch in August, in 50 ml. (via vogue.fr)
From Estee Lauder, the Jeweled Union Jack solid perfume compact, containing the Beautiful fragrance. £320 at Harrods in the UK.
From Sisley, a limited edition of Eau du Soir: "For the 11th edition, Eau du Soir enwraps its famous bottle in dazzling cherry red encrusted with specks of gold, brightening it with a new vivid two-toned radiance. The violet filigree adorns the design with a romantic, baroque touch. Limited series, only 8000 pieces worldwide." £170 for 100 ml, also at Harrods.
From Clive Christian, the "Imperial Jubilee" edition of Clive Christian No. 1 for Women and for Men, in honor of Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee: "Higher concentration than existing No1's, this limited-production perfume features a newly designed outer carton, inner carton, and bottle." $1300 for 50 ml at Neiman Marcus.
$1300 for 50ml of Clive Christian at a slightly higher concentration ?!?! Madness! I was in the Roja Dove store today & an American gentleman walked in and asked ”Do you have Clive Christian perfumes? I just wanted to check , they are the most excpensive in the world arent they?” and seemed only concerned at buying his parner whatever was THE most expensive ittem in the store – not what it smelled like or whether she would actually like it. I guess thats why CC make such a big thing of their prices as thats the kind of bling market they are aiming at (sigh)
When Joy was first developed, it was marketed as the most expensive fragrance in the world.
I would not mind if someone bought me a $1300.00 bottle of Clive Christian-imagine the spree I could go on when I exchanged the gift for something more in line with my tastes.
LOL! Shall I presume that the relationship is over before you make the swap? Otherwise, you have the awkward, “why don’t you wear my perfume?” request.
And doesn’t Amouage Gold sell itself as choosing ingredients in which “price was no option?” Seems like seeming luxurious is a selling point for a lot of perfumes (and other products, now I think on it).
Seems crazy to me too. It’s no Joy.
Eau du Soir bottle is beautiful this year!
Unfortunately, I don’t love Eau de Soir, but that is pretty!
I love Beautiful, and I love that compact, but at £320, it ain’t gonna happen. Are those real jewels on it???
I don’t know, but it is more expensive than many of their compacts.
I love Lauder’s novelty compacts.
