The most expensive perfumes in the history of perfume were created in the United States.
That’s according to a study published this week by researchers at the University of Southern California.
“The most expensive and most desirable perfume in history has historically been made in the U.S.,” said Dr. Mark Rippel, a senior author of the study.
The findings were published online in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
“This study provides evidence that the world’s most expensive fragrances have come from America,” Rippell said.
“If we could find a place where American-made perfumes are cheaper, they would be.”
Rippels team of scientists looked at perfume prices, quality and the availability of ingredients and brands in 17 countries around the world.
The researchers found that the most popular fragrains in each country have a very similar production process, according to Rippe.
They used data from the Fragrance Information Systems of the World Market Database (FIS), which was developed by the International Fragrance Institute.
“When you look at the top 20 most expensive countries, you see that almost every country has one of the most common processes in manufacturing perfumes,” said Rippelle.
The top 10 most expensive fragrance countries in the study were China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Portugal, Russia, Spain and the United Kingdom.
The most popular brands were Anise Eau de Parfum, Anise Noel, Anjou de Parfaix, Bumble and Bumble, Bebe, Bewitched, Bixom, Bisset and Bixa.
The study also found that there is a strong correlation between quality and price, Rippelli said.
It is “very important” that people buy quality perfume, he said.
Quality has a big impact on the longevity of a product.
“In terms of quality, the more expensive you make a product, the longer it lasts,” he said, adding that the quality of the product determines the longevity.
The more expensive the product is, the less likely people are to want to spend the money.
“There is a certain perception out there that if you are spending a lot of money, you are not going to last,” Rizzel said.
He added that the study is not a perfect indicator of the quality or longevity of the perfume, but “it does provide a good baseline.”
“In the case of Anjous, the longevity is not great, so the quality is high and there are other products out there with similar longevity,” Ritzel said, noting that the research could not be replicated for the other top 10 perfumes.
“But the fact that Anjus longevity is better than that of Bixoms, Bèques, Bêtes and Bèles is very good evidence that you should buy that perfume.”
Rizzelli and his team hope to continue their study in coming years, so people can compare prices of perfumes that are different from each other.
“It’s a great way to look at how expensive a product is,” he added.
“You can use that to compare to different products, so that you can figure out if there are different ways to make it.”
