Your perfume is your signature and ensuring that you carry one that matches your style is essential. Today, we’ll share the list of the 15 most expensive perfume brands in the world, to see what your ideal style may cost you.
While perfumes and deodorants are both used to add a fragrant spark to your personality, both lie in different territories. A deodorant is created by using chemicals and artificial fragrances while trying to mimic the original aroma of a plant, flower, or another perfume. This artificial concoction lasts for a very short time.
Perfumes, on the other hand, last longer and are made using the essences of fragrant plants. An eau de parfume/perfume has more than 15 percent concentration of the fragrance, which makes it extremely strong and long lasting. However, you must be ready to dish out a lot more money to buy perfume. While the average perfume can cost upwards of $100, there are some perfumes that cost thousands of dollars. Ralph Lauren Corp (NYSE:RL)‘s notorious perfume promises old Hollywood glamour, while Estee Lauder Companies Inc (NYSE:EL)‘s DKNY continues to be the most costly perfume.
So, what makes a perfume so costly? In general, a perfume is a concoction of various fragrances blended together to create a new fragrance that you will love. The rarer the ingredients, the costlier the cost of making the product, and hence, the pricier the perfume. Jasmine, tuberose, ambergris, musk, and rose oils are some ingredients that are very expensive and pump up the price of perfumes. Sometimes, perfumes are costly because they are developed by celebrated connoisseurs of fragrances and are available only for a limited time. Celebrities may also lend their brand power and whatever perfume expertise they may have to help develop unique (and pricey) fragrances of their own.
There are 8 categories of perfumes- woody, citrus, oriental, fruity, spicy, oceanic, green, and floral. You can carry one of each category so as to match different occasions or simply choose one that suits your personality and style the most.
