Last week, we reported that Butter London was doing a special nail polish shade in honor of Queen Elizabeth's diamond jubilee, which marks her 60th year on the throne. Now, British perfumer Clive Christian is getting into the jubilee spirit too. Christian is best known for making the world's most expensive perfume, the cleverly titled Clive Christian No. 1. Although you can still buy the stuff (at $865 a pop), Christian will be repackaging the same perfume in a fancy new Lilibet-honoring bottle.
So, is anything different besides just the bottle? The limited-edition Imperial Jubilee perfume will contain a higher concentration of the fragrance, making it richer, just like the Queen herself. There will only be 500 bottles of the perfume, and they'll go for $1,300 each. If you're dying to smell like royalty, mark your calendars for June 1.
