Diamond-encrusted: Perfume on sale at £115,000
The ultimate perfume
25th November 2005
The world's most expensive commercially available bottle of perfume has been launched - priced at £115,000.
Its crystal flacon is finished with a five carat diamond mounted in an 18 carat gold collar.
Buyers of the 10 limited edition bottles will have their purchases delivered in a Bentley and served with Harrods' champagne.
British designer Clive Christian created the Imperial Majesty bottle. It comes filled with either Clive Christian No 1 for Men or No 1 for Women fragrances.
Speaking at the bottle's world launch in Harrods yesterday, Christian said: "It is one of 10 and it does mark a change in the luxury world in attitudes towards perfume.
"It is like a celebration and we thought Harrods was the best place to do it."
The 500ml perfume is exclusively available at Harrods in London and Bergdorf Goodman, New York.
Harrods owner Mohamed Al Fayed said: "We already have offers. We could double the price because it is so beautiful."
The Clive Christian fragrances were launched five years ago and cost £1,130 for a 30ml standard bottle.
Each of the limited edition Imperial Majesty bottles will be numbered.
