Clive Christian, the world’s most expensive perfume, with the Limited Edition version of Clive Christian No 1 Imperial Coronation. Their price range goes up to £600! Clive Christian is the most expensive perfume, not an eau de toilette! Perfume means that it is pure perfume and nothing else. Eau de toilette means a bit of perfume mixed with other things!
I have spoken with the Clive Christian team at the Walpole event, and found that their perfumes use the most expensive and highest quality ingredients. The women’s perfume is based on the Florentine iris, whose root is dried for two years and macerated for longer, making a total of five years! Rose, jasmine, ylang-ylang and carnation lace the perfume.
Finally, Tahitian vanilla is spiced with Tonka seeds, cedar wood, sandalwood and musk amber. All these process and materials take time to complete and are totally unique. It is quite hard to make this perfume using mass production techniques and sustain the same quality. That’s why they charge a high price for the perfume. The perfume for men is made from lime, Sicilian mandarin and pink grapefruit, and heliotrope and lily of the valley. Compared to the women’s perfume, the men’s perfume is fresher and influenced with fruit tones.
The most expensive perfume is the Limited Edition version of Clive Christian No 1 Imperial Coronation. It has been created to celebrate the remarkable reign of Queen Elizabeth II. This limited edition is available in a total of 500 bottles – 250 for women and 250 for men.
