Called the DKNY Golden Delicious Million Dollar Fragrance, it more than justifies the exorbitant price tag with a base that comprises of two layers of water white glass between which the 14 karat gold continents of the Earth are set with precious gemstones indigenous to each country. These include a 1.65 carat Turquoise Paraiba Tourmaline from Brazil, a 7.18 carat Oval Cabochon Sapphire from Sri Lanka, 15 Round Brilliant Vivid Pink Diamonds from Australia weighing 1.28 carats, 4 Round Rose Cut Diamonds weighing 0.32 carats, a 3.07 carat Oval Cut Ruby and a 4.03 carat Pear Shape Rose Cut Diamond.
The bottle itself is carved from polished 14-karat yellow and white gold and features 2,700 Round Brilliant White Diamonds weighing 15.17 carats and 183 Golden Yellow Sapphires weighing 2.28 carats in a micro-pave setting, making up the Manhattan skyline that is so iconic to the DKNY brand. The cap has a 2.43 carat flawless vivid yellow canary diamond with a DKNY Golden Delicious diamond oval logo.
Martin Katz – whose glittery designs regularly grace the red carpet – hand placed each stone in a pattern to mimic the New York City skyline. The process took nearly 1,500 hours to complete, making this ‘apple’ the most regal in the DKNY Delicious Collection
The fragrance – redundant though it may seem at this point since it’s the bottle that we have clearly set our heart on – is a contrast of glistening florals and delicious heat. The top is a refreshing medley of Orange Flower Water, sparkling Mirabelle and signature Golden Delicious Apple. The heart introduces an intoxicating bouquet of White Rose, Casablanca Lily, Vanilla Orchid and Muget, while the finish spices up the freshness with a sensual blend of Musk, Sandalwood and Teakwood.
The DKNY Million Dollar Bottle will be unveiled across the globe from London, to Mexico to Malaysia (you can follow it’s journey on the DKNY Fragrances Facebook Core Club Application). Once the tour is complete, it will be sold and net proceeds donated to the global charity Action Against Hunger. The humanitarian organization carries out life-saving programs in more than 40 countries worldwide and assists approximately five million people each year.
