An Emirati perfumery claims it has made globally the most costly fragrance called “Shamukh” in Arabic and valued at $1,295,000 for three liters, its creators state it’s the result of three years of research and just about 494 scent preliminaries.
It is packed in an Italian Murano gem bottle, which has further been decorated with a gold prey-bird, Arabian horses, roses and a globe, contains 3,571 jewels – 38.55 carats altogether – big pearls, two kilograms of 18-karat gold and more than five kilograms of silver. In addition to it, the container sits on a cushioned-leather-stand two meters tall. Makers of said product Nabeel, says the perfume’s ingredients and bejeweled animals imported from different corners of the world.
The fragrance obviously contains hints of sandalwood, musk, Ylang-ylang, Indian agarwood, Turkish rose, musk and patchouli. However, the bottle has set two Guinness World Records: for most jewels set on a scent bottle and for tallest financially accessible remote-controlled aroma splash bottle.
The name of buyer has been kept under cover, however the display of “Shmukh” will continue at Dubai Mall until March 30.
Shamukh has joined market for ultra-lavish fragrances. Concurring to Guinness World Records, the most costly scent financially accessible is Clive Christian No.1 Imperial Majesty, which was discharged in a 10-bottle keep running in 2005 at $205,000 each for 500 milliliters (cost included conveyance).
There are other costly erratic manifestations. In 2011, well known company propelled the Golden Delicious Million Dollar Fragrance Bottle, produced using yellow and white gold and shrouded in 2,700 precious stones and 183 yellow sapphires. Charged as “the world’s initial million-dollar scent bottle” and containing a petite 100 milliliters of aroma, the jug was not financially accessible, rather sold at sale with benefits going to philanthropy. The said company today is not ready to affirm the amount it sold so for.
