Most Expensive Perfumes
The way a person smells says a lot about who they are. Because of this, people may splurge on their favourite scents, from flirty to floral to musky and sweet. Many designer brands around the world have perfumes on their roster of products, putting careful detail and care into the makings of these scents before slapping it with a steep price tag.
Then, there was the fictional Black Panther cologne featured in the movie, Anchorman, which most certainly did not achieve its purpose of attracting women, despite the high cost.
Take a look below at some of the world’s most signature and expensive scents to find out if they really are that reeking with high quality.
