Dubai has created a furore by launching the world’s most expensive Perfume. Over the years, Dubai has become synonymous with luxury and flashy display of wealth. With the world’s tallest, largest and flashiest, it always thinks big.
Dubai is now home to world’s most expensive perfume – the ‘royal’ perfume Shumukh, unveiled by The Spirit of Dubai by Nabeel. Embellished with jewels it costs a whopping $ 1.29 million, and the luxurious bottle 1.97 meters tall.
According to the man behind the new perfume, Asghar Adam Ali, chairman and master perfumer at Nabeel Perfumes Group Companies, Shumukh is homage to “the spirit of Dubai.”
Adorned in topaz, pearls, 18 karat gold and pure silver, SHUMUKH – which means ‘deserving the highest’ in Arabic – pays tribute to the “The Spirit of Dubai” by showcasing the seven key elements of pearl diving (Durra), falconry (Baz), Arabian horses (Abjar), roses (Narjesi), luxury (Haibah), Arabian hospitality (Diwan), and Dubai’s stature as a ‘city of the future’ (Aamal), which modelled in gold and silver, and ornamented with the highest quality VVS diamonds and precious stones.
I’m sure many of you like me would be wondering what the fragrance of the world’s most expensive perfume smells like? Well, it’s a combination of sandalwood, musk, Turkish rose, Patchouli, Ylang-Ylang, and Indian Agarwood. Worn by both men and women, it’s estimated to last on the skin for more than 12 hours and up to 30 days on fabric.
