DKNY has decided to join the million dollar bandwagon.Seriously folks, is it just me who does not have a zillion dollars sitting in the bank account, or are there others like me out there?
Because from what I see and hear in my line of work, it seems that I am the only pauper left in town.
Coming back to the million dollar perfume bottle from DKNY: It is adorned with 2,909 precious stones sourced from all over the world, including a 1.65 carat Turquoise Paraiba Tourmaline from Brazil; a 7.18 carat Oval Cabochon Sapphire from Sri Lanka, 15 Round Brilliant Vivid Pink Diamonds from Australia weighing 1.28 carats, 4 Round Rose Cut Diamonds weighing 0.32 carats, a 3.07 carat Oval Cut Ruby and a 4.03 carat Pear Shape Rose Cut Diamond.
Each of the aforementioned stones have been hand placed to mimic the New York City skyline. The process took nearly 1,500 hours to complete, making this apple (which is the closest you can come to describing the bottle) the most regal in the DKNY Delicious Collection.
The DKNY Golden Delicious Million Dollar Fragrance Bottle is carved from polished 14-karat yellow and white gold and features 2,700 Round Brilliant White Diamonds weighing 15.17 carats, 183 Golden Yellow Sapphires weighing 2.28 carats in a micro pave setting in 14kt. white gold making up the Manhattan skyline that is so iconic to the DKNY brand. The 2.43 carat Flawless Vivid Yellow Canary Diamond adorns the cap of the bottle alongside a DKNY Golden Delicious diamond oval logo.
The DKNY Million Dollar Bottle will be unveiled across the globe from London, to Mexico to Malaysia. Fragrance lovers will have a chance to marvel at the stunning, one-of-a-kind bottle, as it is unveiled. Fans may follow the bottle as it travels the globe on the DKNY Fragrances Facebook Core Club Application.
Once the tour is complete, the bottle won’t be stored under lock and key in the DKNY safe—instead it will be sold to enthusiasts with net proceeds to be donated to the global charity, Action Against Hunger.
