5. Caron Poivre | $ 2000

Carron Poivre had made the perfume as a marker of their 50th anniversary. The scent is still considered as one of the best by the brand ever.
The perfume comes in a handcrafted bottle that resembles a spice jar, as is expected of a perfume that contains notes of spicy pepper, with the base of woody notes. The perfume sells for a price tag of $1000 for an ounce, making the standard 50ml bottle cost a staggering $2000.
4. Clive Christian No. 1 | $2,150
Ylang-ylang, iris, apricot, carnations and other rare and exotic flavors make this scent a savory one. The perfume was initially considered the best in the world during the early 2000s decade, and also briefly earned the title of the world’s most expensive perfume.
An 18-carat gold neck and a 5-carat white brilliant-cut diamond adorn the bottle of the fragrance, making a significant contribution to the price.
The perfume sells for a hefty price of $2150 for an ounce, placing it on number 4 of our list of world’s most expensive perfumes.
3. Baccarat Les Larmes Sacrees de Thebes | $6,800
The name may sound funny to non-native speakers, but for the ones who truly adore fragrances and their importance in our society will recognise the name right away. The company was into crystal making, but the fragrance division made an entrance in the 1990s.

These ingredients make the fragrance simply irresistible.
