4 Most Luxurious Fragrances to Invest In

Feature: Long Read
Words By: Nateisha Scott

Housed in the finest flacons, fragrances create a special olfactive experience. Blending rare and exquisite notes into colourful juices, they are transportive, memory-evoking, and mood-boosting pieces of wearable art. It’s probably why the luxury perfume market (according to Statista) was valued at $11.9bn in 2022 and is now projected to reach $19.5bn by 2028.

With that in mind, you may be searching for your next perfume investment, and you’ve come to the right place. Graff, Xerjoff, Grace de Monaco,and Alexandre-J are all exceptional fragrance houses that insist on creating scent marvels (almost) too spectacular to wear, whatever your perfume personality.

Graff, Lesedi La Rona IX

Leave a lasting impression when you spritz Graff’s Lesedi La Rona IX. It’s a dazzling canary-yellow creation inspired by the most precious and adored 302-carat principal yellow diamond. And just like its muse, the bottle is cut and polished to shine and stand out like a piece of fine jewellery in your fragrance wardrobe. As a smoky and spicy blend, you’ll immediately notice the woody-base notes of cedarwood and tonka bean as soon as it hits your skin. Then after a few moments, you’ll experience the sweet, warm, and musky scent balanced by jasmine, clary  sage, ginger and cardamom. It’s an exceptional and sophisticated fragrance that you’ll  wear for evenings out or paired with your finest jewellery pieces.

Grace De Monaco, Promenade Sur Le Rocher

If you globetrot around the world via scent, then you’ll need to invest in Grace de Monaco’s Promenade Sur Le Rocher. Bottling the calm, wistful, and elegant nature of Monaco and the essence of Princess Grace Kelly herself, this white-floral and sensual wonder is a must-wear come summertime. Crafted by perfumers Olivier Cresp and Veronique Gabai, the opulent blend features notes of bergamot, rose, ylang-ylang, and vanilla – leaving a light and refreshing floral bouquet with every spritz. Equally, if you're obsessed with the floral-musk aroma then treat yourself to the scented candle and ceramic diffuser – because why shouldn’t home scents should be as luxurious as your fragrances?

Xerjoff, Begum

Infatuating, alluring, and only available at Harrods is Xerjoff’s Begum. As a perfumer known for his unique approach to fragrances, Sergio Momo has created a rare and olfactive experience with this scent. Part of the 17/17 Stone Label collection, Begum is designed and fitted with a hand-cut, natural semiprecious stone inspired by London’s Natural History Museum. The perfume blend itself is a match made in heaven for those who enjoy woody scents. Initially, the scent is a lighter chypre floral consisting of lemon and bergamot before settling with a warm and spicy twist thanks to sandalwood, musk, and amber. For wearers that are bold and playful with their fragrances, this is a noteworthy investment for any collector.

Alexandre J, Imperial Peacock

As a recognisable piece of liquid art, Alexandre J’s Imperial Peacock is one you’ll want to save for very special occasions. The bottle alone is made from finely cut glass and is adorned with an enamel medallion and glass paste cap. Also, a perfume as flamboyant as its namesake, expect a lavish, over-the-top, and never-before-smelt gourmand scent. Composed of almond, rhubarb, black vanilla, sugar, and musk – you’ll savour this delicious perfume like you would a dessert. Sweet and bold, choose Imperial Peacock for heads to turn all night long.
