Smell like luxury: the world’s most expensive perfumes.
USD 1.29 million Shumukh
Shumukh, USD 1.29 million, a magnificent blend of fragrances that includes Indian agarwood, sandalwood, musk, Turkish rose, and several more that have not been officially disclosed, was unveiled in March at the Armani Ballroom of the Burj Khalifa. Asghar Adam Ali, a professional perfumer from Dubai, created it. The package is a work of art, with a leather display case that rises nearly two meters tall and opens to show a bottle embellished with UAE heritage icons.
A trio of gold Arabian thoroughbreds, as well as three silver clamshells each containing a real pearl, adorn the base. Three beautiful roses in pink gold and diamond dust, as well as a miniature globe with gold continents, are included. A golden dome with a diamond-studded gold falcon stands above three marble pillars that rise from the base. Needless to say, there is now just one bottle in existence, making it extremely rare and, no doubt, increasing its value over time.
Every perfume has its own essence, as well as a distinguishing touch that distinguishes the person. There are certain scents that draw us in and remind us of specific locations and events. The perfume’s salty notes transport us to a seaside location, releasing more magical memories we’ve been fortunate to experience. Citrus notes, for example, might transport us back to our childhood, when we were walking in the woods. When you smell a fragrance, your senses are all heightened. So, have we ever thought about what it smells like to be surrounded by luxury? It’s a difficult subject to answer because luxury is a unique experience that is unique to every one of us. Even so, we can classify the world’s most valuable perfumes to examine what scent they evoke.
One million dollars was paid for the most expensive perfume ever marketed.

Clive Christian’s “Number 1 Imperial Majesty” is the 3rd world’s most luxurious fragrance.
