Versace is a highly respected Italian fashion and design house founded in 1978 by Gianni Versace in Milan, Italy. While the company itself is not that old, as say Louis Vuitton, they have established themselves well within the high fashion industry, and they saw over $598 million dollars in revenue last year alone. What really got the company famous was a particular dress worn by Elizabeth Hurley at the premier of “Four Weddings and a Funeral”, in 1994 which is known as “That Dress”. Today the company make a wide range of diverse products, including perfume, cologne, and other cosmetic goods. Their most expensive perfumes are the “Couture Deluxe Tuberose” and the “Couture Deluxe Violet”.
The Couture Deluxe Tuberose (pictured above) is a jasmine flower based perfume with a variety of other, more subtle scents. The complementary notes of this Eau de Toilette are Ylang Ylang, Rose, and Benzoin. The combinations of these various scents give off a sweet yet rich and opulent aroma. The perfume comes in a 100 ml bottler that is hand wrapped in premium Nappa leather with the iconic gold Versace label.
Couture Deluxe Violet is “a tribute to violet, strong and delicate at the same time” according to Versace. This perfume is less subtle that the Tuberose as it has “facets of powdery Mimosa” in addition to scents of musk and heliotrope. Like the Couture Deluxe Tuberose, the Deluxe Violet is also wrapped in premium leather, however this time it is in the color of violet.
Both of these luxury perfumes are available off of Versace’s website, their retail stores, or high-end department stores where perfume and fragrances of this caliber are sold. If you want to purchase a bottle for yourself or a loved one, you better hold on as they both cost $470 dollars per bottle. But one should expect that with a brand like Versace, you are paying for the best.
