For crazy rich perfume lovers.

Scents can have a major impact on our emotions and memories, so it's no surprise that many consider a bottle of perfume as an investment. However, the spectrum of fragrances is wide, and some are so delicately made that they deserve a truly hefty price tag. In fact, we found five of the most expensive ones out there—and here's why they might actually be worth it.

#5. JAR Bolt of Lightning

Price: $380 per ounce (or approximately P19,648.66)

This perfume launched over a decade ago yet it still remains popular amongst luxury items. It is a majestic oriental and floral fragrance infused with tuberose and green notes, poured into a handcut bottle created by jeweler Joel A. Rosenthal.
