#20 – Petite Mort
Let’s first translate what the name of this perfume means. “Petite Mort,” translated from French into English literally means “little death.” However, this perfume doesn’t have anything to do with death or it will bring its wearer death. The name of this heavenly perfume was derived from a French idiom “le petit mort” which translates as “the brief loss or weakening of consciousness.”
That can only mean one thing – the smell of this perfume is so good that it is lethal. Only 100 bottles of 10 ml of Le Petit Mort by Marc Atlan were produced and each costs $1,000. Yes, 10 ml of this perfume cost $1,000!
