The International Gemological Institute (IGI) has certified the stones on the world’s most expensive bottle of perfume.
Adorned with 3,571 VVS diamonds, totaling 38.55cts, alongside topaz, pearls, and 2.48 kilos of 18ct gold and 5.90 kilos of pure silver, IGI has been chosen to verify the quality of stones which make SHUMUKH the most expensive scent in the world at $1.30m.
SHUMUKH, which in Arabic means “deserving the highest”, is the only perfume to hold two Guinness World Record titles, the ‘most diamonds set on a perfume bottle’, and the ‘tallest remote-controlled fragrance spray product’.
Created by the Spirit of Dubai Parfums by Nabeel, SHUMUKH celebrates Dubai’s cultural heritage and its persona in a bottle described by the firm as a “piece of art”.
With a vision to optimise luxury in a scent, the SHUMUKH bottle features a built in, one-of-a-kind remote control spray and hydraulics mechanisms, while the outside features IGI certified stones.
Furthermore, the manual has been encrusted with 456 diamonds and 103 grams of 18ct gold, topped off with a selection of blue topaz, pearls, howlite, and enamel detailing,
