From Clock Tower Penthouses to Champagne Ice Cream

 - Aug 30, 2014
The top August 2014 luxury ideas feature a slew of products and services so over the top that it makes one wonder how markets for them actually exist. A large majority of the products could easily be portrayed as useless or wasteful -- but that's the whole point, isn't it?

Products like the $1.3 million surfboard -- which boast platinum gold and hand-burnished timber -- and the stylish Alexander Wang shot glasses transform everyday, seemingly average occurrences into lavish, indulgent experiences. An additional example is the mouthwash from France, priced at approximately $41 per bottle.

While many consumers would never pay these prices, others are willing to because of the unique experience and feelings luxurious products can provide.
