Apparently, for one Parisian shopper, the answer is no. And for that $10,000, this shopper bought fragrance #2 from L'Artisan Parfumeur which will be his or hers exclusively, forever.
If you wear perfume, you know having a scent that is exclusive to you is certainly alluring. And now, as we know, expensive.
For that $10,000, the person receives a "certificate of authentication" along with four 100 ml bottles, four 50 ml bottles and four 15 ml bottles of perfume #2.
This buyer also has the right to order more of perfume #2 at the going rate of $450 per 100 ml bottle anytime in his or her lifetime, and can will the certificate, hence ownership, to his/her heirs or can simply give it to someone else.
If you're looking for something special to buy for the holidays and have money to burn, the good news is that there are still seven more of these exclusive fragrances available at L'Artisan boutiques around the world, including the only one in the US, at Henri Bendel on New York City's Fifth Avenue.
