Natural fragrances and perfumes have been around since ancient times, bringing pleasant and evocative smells to living spaces, hair and skin. It is only since the 1800s. A great perfumer is considered both a chemist and an artist, mixing chemicals and ingredients to create the most pleasant, layered aromas. From light, floral fragrances to strong musky smells, the art of perfume making is an ever-evolving practice and particularly pricey or hard-to-come-by components hike up the price of the finished product. The 9 most expensive perfumes and colognes in the world are influenced by the design of the bottle, current trends, and the rarity of the ingredients involved. Luxurious perfumes are bought by the ounce, not the bottle, so we’ve ranked the perfumes’ prices in this article.
