DUBAI – The International Gemological Institute (IGI) is the certification partner of choice for SHUMUKH, the world’s most expensive bottle of scent – a luxurious unisex perfume worth US$1.30 million.
SHUMUKH is the only perfume to hold two Guinness World Record titles, the “Most diamonds set on a perfume bottle,” and the “Tallest remote-controlled fragrance spray product.” The name SHUMUKH translates to “deserving the highest” in Arabic and is an artefact of the Spirit of Dubai Parfums by Nabeel. SHUMUKH celebrates Dubai’s cultural heritage and its persona in one monumental piece of art.
SHUMUKH is the magnum opus in luxury that combines the disciplines of art, perfumery and jewelry. It has built-in, one-of-a-kind innovations such as its remote-controlled spray and hydraulics mechanisms that have been incorporated for the first time ever on a bottle of perfume. Each of SHUMUKH’s design features have been intricately crafted in gold and silver and ornamented with IGI certified diamonds and precious stones. SHUMUKH is set with 3,571 sparkling VVS diamonds (totaling 38.55 carats), topaz, pearls, 2.48 kilos of 18-karat gold and 5.90 kilos of pure silver. Opulently, even its manual is encrusted with 456 diamonds and 103 grams of 18 karat gold, topped off with a selection of blue topaz, pearls, howlite and enamel detailing.
Established in 1975, IGI today is a global leader of expert gemologists with over 20 laboratories and 19 schools of gemology, connecting most major markets in Europe, the Middle East, South Asia, the Far East and the Americas.
IGI’s global reach and market leadership role in the gemological world is no coincidence, it is the result of continuous research, support and synergy with professionals and consumers alike. Around the world, IGI certificates bring confidence when buying or selling diamonds, gemstones and jewelry.
