The World's Most Expensive Perfume

June 18th 2008 01:03
The World’s Most Expensive Perfume


What is the world’s most expensive perfume? Joy by Jean Patou, which includes the extremely expensive ingredients of Bulgarian roses and jasmine, used to be the most expensive perfume. Although still extremely costly and highly regarded, Joy has lost its place at No. 1.

According to the Guinness Book of Records, Clive Christian No. 1 is now the most expensive perfume. An English millionaire and furniture-maker, Clive Christian bought the Crown Perfume Company which once made corsets and included Queen Victoria amongst its customers. Clive Christian No. 1 contains very pure and expensive ingredients, including carnation, jasmine and cedar wood. It costs US $2,350.00 for one ounce! Only 1000 bottles of the women’s version and 1000 bottles of the men’s version are released each year.

This is also available in a limited edition in baccarat crystal bottle with a five carat diamond and an eighteen carat gold collar. It costs over $200,000.00. Elton John bought one in the shape of a piano.

Many of the wealthy and famous are hoping that another contender for the world’s most expensive perfume will be reissued. Blended by perfumer, Arthur Burnham, for the fashion house, Gianni Vive Sulman, Parfum VI was named after the Rolls-Royce Phantom Six. Only 173 bottles were ever made at nearly $90,000.00 each.
Customers included Michael Jackson and Mike Tyson.

Made of the purest ingredients, the perfume contained base notes of rose and resin. Burnham studied ancient perfumes to complete his brief, which was to ‘create a fragrance that would be unbelievably special, totally unique and extreme in every regard.’ The scent has been called ‘the most enchanting and irresistible symphony...’

The flacons designed by Pierre Dinard, were made of ruby-crystal, rubies and diamonds. The boxes were made of exotic wood by the Rolls-Royce coach-makers and each had its own ruby and diamond key.

If there is enough demand the perfume will be reissued by The Hadland Group.

When Feydeau the author of A Scented Palace: The Secret History of Marie Antoinette’s s Perfumer, asked the perfumer, /Francis Kurkdjian to create a fragrance similar to Marie Antoinette’s, he said that it would be ‘impossible’ and ‘too expensive.’ He thought this because the perfume would have to be created with natural ingredients

Louis Vuitton Store
He’s old, wrinkled and without movie-star looks. Yet the famous rock-star features in the latest ads for Louis Vuitton, the luxury fashion and luggage company. This former member of the Rolling Stones is over 60 and one doubts that many of the younger generation even know who he is.

According to the blogwriter ofCouture in the City ... the campaign restates travel as the fundamental and defining value of Louis Vuitton, interpreting it as a personal journey and a process of self-discovery.” It also focuses on the fascinating history of the company which began in 1854

Have You Got A Missing Faberge Item?

March 29th 2008 23:01
A woman on the Antiques Roadshow TV programme presented a beautiful diamond brooch for valuing. An Edwardian family heirloom, it was bought in France. She was delighted when it was a Faberge piece and worth a fortune!

There are many missing Faberge items - jewellery, clocks, cigarrette cases. These are usually small but, surprisingly, some of the famous eggs became lost in the Revolution
