The scene was quite dramatic asunveiled her most expensive and precious creation, her DKNY Golden Delicious million dollar fragrance bottle, at the DKNY store.
Supermodel Chanel Iman, clad in her black and gold leopard print sheath (probably by DKNY one can successfully guess!) and surrounded by four burly body guards, MIB (Men in Black) types, no less!
Iman posed playfully and provocatively with the little golden treasure that is DKNY’s Golden Delicious million dollar fragrance bottle, after she had produced it from a security case – bullet proof, fire proof and theft proof, with the four men in matching black suits and grey ties – not altogether unattractive – packing pieces or perhaps just hamming it up for appearances, while the real armed guards stood on standby…
But a bit about the bottle itself, word has it that it was designed by none other than jeweler, rendered in 14 karat yellow and white gold.
The rare design, for a perfume bottle that is, features the New York City skyline encircling the golden orb and incorporates some 2,909 gems including 183 yellow sapphire, 2,700 white diamonds, 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, a 3.07 carat oval cut ruby, a 4.03 carat pear shaped rose cut diamond and a 2.43-carat yellow canary diamond.
The DKNY Golden Delicious million dollar fragrance bottle comes home after a global unveiling from London to Malaysia and Mexico.
The bottle and its DKNY Golden Delicious perfume that it holds is up for sale to those who value it, with net proceeds going to the Action Against Hunger charity.
So what does the fragrance itself smell like? DKNY Golden Delicious incorporates the accentuated aromas of the juicy "Golden delicious" apple, along with orange blossom and Mirabelle plum.
Its opulent floral heart offers a bouquet of white roses, surrounded with Casablanca lilies, lily of the valley and vanilla orchid, while the base caresses with notes of musk, followed by a sensual woody trail of sandalwood and teak.Intrigued? Take a look at my slide show to satisfy your curiosity…
