Mane has launched Yu which means rain in Chinese, one of the most expensive fragrances available on the market today at $5000. It was composed by nose Cecile Krakower of Mane.

New York Times perfume critic, Chandler Burr said “It’s actually very interesting, aesthetically gorgeous. You can smell the money in it. It’s almost a fresh quality, like using a very good toothpaste.”

But he thinks that the perfume is not really worth it: “$5,000 is marketing, just increases the marketing campaign.”

Only 500 bottles of the scent were produced and are currently available at the high-end department store Bergdorf Goodman.

It will also be for sale at Lane Crawford in Hong Kong this summer and in select Nordstrom stores in the fall.
