$2,200 Scent

Ralph Lauren’s Love fragrance Amethyst Luxury Edition costs $2,200 for half an ounce! Shocking, I know. I won’t be buying this anytime soon either. I don’t know anyone who will actually because I don’t know anyone who just blows money like that. I wish I did haha!

What makes this perfume so special to cost $2,200? The cap is topped with a 47-carat amethyst. Really, it is very beautiful. The neck of the bottle is also covered in 24-karat gold. Also, because it is a perfume, not an eau de parfum or eau de toilette, it has a higher concentration of fragrance oils. It contains two rare essential oils (Bulgarian Rose and Orris Root Butter) which also brings the price up. The regular version of the perfume is $600 and refills are $350.

Really though, I love perfumes and cologne (worn on guys). Two of my favorites are Burberry Brit and J’adore by Dior. I don’t wear them all the time though (too pricey). I usually just wear one of my many perfumes from Avon. Of those my favorite is Rogue by Christian Lacroix. The picture below is of most of my perfumes displayed on my shelf.

That is a lot of money for perfume. But, that's pocket change to the wealthy. I'll leave that to them to purchase.

No way! That's a lot of money for something that's pretty much intangible. I don't wear perfume anymore because I get migraines and often times smells bug me.

My tiny bottle of chanel.

I'm scared if I drop it it'll all go on the floor.

That's as crazy as $50.000 personalized chair.

Thanks :) It isn't actually how my shelf normally looks though. I took some out of their boxes because I haven't used them yet for the pic :) I have about 10 of them in a fancy wire basket and about 10 lotions in a matching basket next to it. It didn't photograph well though. :(
