The Guinness World Records' record for the most expensive perfume is the Clive Christian No.1 for Men or No.1 for Women - 30 ml (1 fl oz) of which typically costs £1,317 (then $2,355). In November 2005, Clive Christian created 'No.1 Imperial Majesty' a 10-bottle, limited edition of the Clive Christian No 1 Collection, priced at £115,000 (then $205,000) per 500 ml (17 fl oz).
The perfume was presented in a Baccarat crystal flacon, decorated with a five-carat white diamond and an 18-carat gold collar. It was launched at the Roja Dove Haute Parfumerie in Harrods, London, UK and sold over Christmas both there and at Bergdorf Goodman in New York, USA. The price included delivery in a Bentley.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the Most expensive perfume sold at a private sale, set by V1, designed by Arfaq (UK), 29 ml (0.5 oz) of which was commissioned privately at a price of $232,450 (£122,490) by His Royal Highness Prince Faisal Bin Fahad Bin Abdullah Al Saud, Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, in London, UK on 29 October 2006.
The extravagant bottle contains 30ml of his No1 The World's Most Expensive Perfume. The Salon de Parfum opened on the sixth floor of Harrods on Tuesday, The Daily Mail reported.
Called the No1 Passant Guardant, it uses the perfume house's signature crystal bottle and then ups the ante by covering it in hand-crafted, 24 carat gold lattice-work.
As with all the bottles, the top is a crown shape as the design was created in 1872 and paid homage to Queen Victoria. But in this case, the gold crown is embedded with flawless white diamonds. In total, there are 2,000 individually set diamonds on the bottle.
It costs £143,000 (or over $228,000 USD).
