To celebrate the opening of the Salon de Parfum boutique at Harrods, the British perfumer Clive Christian has created a special edition of his No1 perfume, priced at whopping £143,000 ($228,000).
Though the standard bottle of this fragrance retails for £450 ($720), the special-edition crystal bottle, Passant Guardant bears the title as ‘the world’s most expensive perfume’ due to its packaging. This special-edition crystal falcon is encased in hand-crafted, 24-karat gold lattice-work. Each one also boasts 2,000 individually set diamonds. Paying homage to Queen Victoria, the bottle features the signature crown shaped top and has a lion logo that includes two yellow and a rare pink diamond.
“I was inspired to create an iconic bottle as precious as a crown jewel to mark this special event,” Christian boats on his Web site.
The extravagant bottle contains 30ml of the priceless perfume which boasts cherry-licorice scented Tahitian vanilla and rosa centifolia.
Clive Christian’s No1 Passant Guardant perfume claims to be the most expensive perfume in the world, and has been recognized as such by the Guinness Book of World Records.
