The reason for wearing perfume has moved from just to keep unpleasant odour at bay but to being associated with class, elegance and sophistication.
Perfume brands have seized this opportunity to produce luxury perfumes that cost as much as hundreds of thousand per bottle. The reason for such high price could be attributed to the use of rare ingredients; the use of expensive crystal bottles and the use of gold, diamond, and other precious gems on the packaging; and finally, high marketing cost on ads and celebrity endorsements.
