Caron’s Poivre is wonderful perfume but the spectacularly beautiful Baccarat bottle that comes with it is what really raises the price so much. The bottle of this perfume is encrusted with pristine crystals on the white gold collar and reflects sophistication just as this perfume should be like. The bottle has two ounces of Caron’s Poivre perfume and costs $2,000.

7. Ralph Lauren Perfume Notorious$3,540 per bottle

The renowned jewelry designer Joel A. Rosenthal created Jar Perfumes and The Bolt of Lightning, a strong and fresh perfume that has an apparently similar smell to the smell of the air just after a bolt of lighting strike. Since Joel is a popular jewelry designer, this perfume comes in a wonderful bottle which is hand cut from glass in a lovely manner. The unusual aroma of this perfume reflects the unconventional sense of style of its creator.

4. Henri Alméras’s Joy Perfume for Jean Patou$800 per ounce

Henri Alméras designed Joy back in 1929 for the Parisian perfumer Jean Patou and since then it’s still considered one of the greatest fragrances ever created. The perfume was designed during the Wall Street Crash to bring joy in the lives of the clients and even though its price was really high it became an instant hit and remained popular since then. Joy is made from many flowers but it doesn’t smell like a specific flower.

3. Annick Goutal Perfume EAU D’hadrien $1,500 for a bottle

The result was called Eau D’hadrien and it’s sweet smell will do the magic to keep all people around you under the fascination of this fragrance. The price is $1,500 for a 3,4 ounces bottle but it’s probably worth every single penny.

Hermes launched this perfume in 1995 and named it after the Parisian address of their flag store since this was also going to become one of the “flag” perfumes in the world. The perfume was designed by Maurice Roucel and Bernand Bourjois to resemble the images of luxury and feminine quality and to compliment the soft and aesthetic.  The 24 Faubourg is a combination of ylang ylang, orange blosson, jasmine, iris, vanilla and ambergris fragrances and it comes in little bottles of just once ounce priced at $1,500 each.

1. Clive Christian’s Imperial Majesty Perfume$215,000

The most expensive perfume in the world costs “only” $215,000 for a bottle! Clive Christian’s Imperial Majesty Perfume has a unique scent which is a mixture of jasmine, cardamom, carnation, lemon, bergamot and benzoin but this incredibly high price comes from its diamond crusted bottle.

The bottle comes with a dazzling white diamond embedded that could be worth alone about $215,000. Due to its impressive price, only 20 bottles of Clive Christian Imperial Majesty’s were made, 10 for men and 10 for women.

  2. Since this article was published, a new luxury perfume house was quietly launched with a price point of $299 for .12 oz, or nearly $2,500 per ounce.

    You can learn more about Primal Mist’s Formulae Alpha and Formulae Beta, and the history behind the brand, at . Primal Mist’s first two perfumes took four years to bring to market, and have a fascinating back story you’ll find on the website.

    I don’t know where Formulae Alpha and Beta line up in your list, but they’re in there somewhere!

  3. Notorious?? one of the most expensive perfume???
    This is bullshit! you can buy notorious from anywhere and it is cheap( as in decent) perfume just like the rest of the perfume in the world ( for 10s of dollars)!

  4. No, it separates the idiots who waste money on vanity, from the people who know better than to pay just for the name.
    By the way, you’re an idiot.

  5. I can think of a lot better ways to waste that sort of money.
    Better still, buy a decent house.
