As I was shopping around some of my favorite beauty sites, in hopes of finding a quickie purchase to ease the onset of depression that comes with the sun setting in the middle of the afternoon, I came upon something at L'Artisan Parfumeur that continues to boggle my mind: a $10,000 perfume. That's right, for the cost of a used car you can have your own exclusive scent fashioned by Parisian perfumer L’Artisan Parfumeur. The noses at the haute house have created seven exclusive scents (there's no number 5 for obvious reasons), accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. Buyers are granted four 100ml, 50 ml and 15 ml bottles at first purchase. Refills are available for the certificate holder only at $450 for 100ml. The document may be willed or gifted, so the personalized scent can outlive its purchaser. Can you imagine willing someone perfume? That's just plain ridiculous even in a booming economy. This begs another question: Does the value reflect market conditions or does it increase with age?
