Luxurious diffuser oils are aromatic and often very intricate in structure.
They embody elegance and intensity and stream with intriguing and exotic facets that whisper of splendor and self-indulgence.
These scents are known to contain higher percentages of perfume oil than cheaper perfumes, which is why they last much longer on the skin.
Luxury diffuser oils are also more balanced with many costly and exotic raw materials derived from a global palette, which all add to both their opulent character and ultimate cost.
The world’s rarest and most desirable essential oils are found in luxury perfumes. Coveted blends can range from exotic blooms to animal secretions.
In the case of floral scents, masses of flowers are often needed to produce the revered oil that derives from their essence.
Many blossoms are seasonal, requiring labor-intensive hand picking, which must be timed to perfection in order to extract the full potency of the raw material.
In the same manner as award-winning chefs always use superior quality ingredients for their many gourmet creations, our perfumers rely on the very best raw materials that money can buy for all of their formulations.
In the words of Paolo Terenzi, president and perfumer of Tiziana Terenzi fine fragrances:
“Luxury perfumes are more likely to use natural notes (derived from florals, spices, etc.) instead of those that are synthetic. These notes are then incorporated into the base, middle and top notes of a scent, which allows the fragrance to be more aromatic and deeply complex.”

In addition to floral and spicy aspects, luxury perfumes often include exotic woody elements, such as the smoky, exquisite and mysterious scent provided by oud and other resinous essential oils.
Oud is unique in that its precious oil can only be extracted from a species of tree indigenous to the Middle East that is infected with a type of fungus.
The oil is odorless without the natural occurrence of insects infecting the tree.
Extraction is delicate, requires great skill and much time. Other categories include essential oils that are derived from animals like the sperm whale (ambergris) and the musk deer.
Today, great white whales and musk deer are considered endangered species, as they were killed in great numbers for many years by those from the perfume industry who sought the precious essential oil harvested from their organs.
There are a few solid reasons why luxury perfumes and essential oils are more costly than others. Some are obvious while others are often not realized.
The cost of manufacturing is vitally important to the quality associated with any fragrance. Some iconic fashion houses, such as Chanel, have their own in house master perfumers.
Others, however, often outsource their scents to large corporations. This always results in a mark-up that the consumer ends up paying for.
Perfume packaging has a definite shelf or counter appeal, and a beautiful bottle not only attracts consumers it also visually symbolizes its brand.
A beautiful bottle in an exquisite and unique box seeps a presentation marked by luxury and opulence.
Other considerations justifying the price of a luxury fragrance concern protecting its integrity and marketing costs.
A good perfume bottle provides more than just visual appeal. It must be hermetically sealed, which insures the scent’s longevity and traps the fragrance by being thick enough to prevent its exposure to light, which often serves to weaken its strength.
Marketing too is vital to the success of even a fragrance that is already very well known.
Public demand is often fickle and can change in a heartbeat if a new and more appealing marketing campaign captures consumer attention.
Every perfume has a fragrance concentration, and this usually determines the intensity of the perfume oils and alcohol in it.
It is very easy for the average consumer to get confused about these levels and the strength of the many diverse fragrances on the market today.
The density of a specific scent refers to its potency, and the rule is that the higher the concentration of perfume oils and the lesser the amount of alcohol, the purer the fragrance and the greater its tenacity.
The five levels are as follows.
This has the highest level of perfume oils at 20 to 40% and the longest linger time on the wearer’s skin. It is the most expensive of all fragrance types.
2. Eau de Parfum
With the second highest concentration of essential oils at 15 to 20 percent, these fragrances are known to last for four or five hours on the skin. As the oil level drops, alcohol is added, which is why it is less expensive than pure parfum. This variety is often a favored type for nocturnal activities.
3. Eau de Toilette
Containing an essential oil concentration range between 5 to 15 percent, the addition of alcohol as the perfume level drops affects both its strength and price. Lasting power on the skin ranges somewhere between three to four hours and it is often the preferred type for daytime wear.
4. Eau de Cologne
The concentration of essential oils for Eau de Cologne (EDC) is usually between 2 to 5 percent, and its lasting power stands only for about two hours.
5. Eau Fraîche
This level has a perfume oil density that reaches barely 1 percent, and it differs from EDC in that it does not contain much alcohol and its additional ingredient is water.
Our perfumers define luxury diffuser oils as those that are rich elegant, deep and full. Our scents are known to penetrate and linger longer on the skin than others.
Some rich essential oils include: green, earthy and slightly sharp vetiver, dark, sensual patchouli and intense and intoxicating jasmine.
