Prada has decided that perfume should be at least as expensive as a handbag or designer gown. They're launching a new edition of their hit perfume Candy, and this candy doesn't come cheap. For £2,500 (about $4,000), you can get a supersized 900 ml bottle of the perfume inside a pink leather case. It'll be exclusively available at Selfridge's starting on December 3, so there's plenty of time to add it to your Christmas list. [Vogue UK]
