French Winner Net's €39.3 million Jackpot
EuroMillions made yet another French lottery player a multi-millionaire! On 8th November, the EuroMillions’ Tuesday draw created the 81st French jackpot winner thanks to the lucky numbers 5, 9, 47, 49 and 50 with Lucky Stars 8 and 9.
What is a Frenchman to do with so many millions in his bank account? I say, celebrate in (French) style!
Here are 5 French indulgences that the new French EuroMillions jackpot winner can pamper herself/himself with:
Breakfast at Tiffany’s
No, I am not suggesting the winner flies all the way to New York City to see where the famous film was set. It’s just that there is an actual Breakfast at Tiffany’s that you can order for the humble sum of £22,000. It includes a croissant, coffee and a cocktail, created by the makers of the famous French black raspberry liqueur Chambord.
Needless to say, the croissant is hand-decorated (and covered in edible gold and diamonds and everything), the coffee is Kopi Luwak (yes, the one that proudly features part-digested and then… defecated coffee cherries). Thank you, civets.
Oh, and you get to wash your coffee down with a cocktail that is served from a gold, diamonds, AND pearls-incrusted bottle. The bottle itself costs about £1.5 million but, as you may have already guessed, you don’t get to keep it.
The most expensive French wine
How is a Frenchman (or French woman) supposed to celebrate such a life-changing lottery win? With wine, of course! Here is our suggestion:
Romanee-Conti DRC 1990 – a set of 8 bottles costs $224,900 (at least that was how much it was bought for at Sotheby's London in 1996). Why so expensive? Well, apparently, the soil on which the grapes for this wine were grown, is almost totally fruitless. Why they use it knowing this is still beyond me… What’s with the whole case of 8 bottles? You wouldn’t expect to win the EuroMillions jackpot and not celebrate the good news in a proper manner, would you?
The smell of luxury
Now that you’ve become a multimillionaire overnight (thank you, again, EuroMillions), you have to differentiate in some way from the rest of the folks that don’t have an 8-figure sum in their bank accounts. A great way to do it is the invisible, yet strikingly tangible, mantle of an exclusive perfume that only you and a handful of other Frenchmen can afford.
Baccarat Les Larmes Sacrees de Thebes is the perfume of the perfumes. While it is not the most expensive perfume per se, priced at $6,800 per ounce, this heavenly smell has its way of setting you apart from the mass. The Sacred Tears of Thebes (as its name suggest) can easily make anyone burst into tears once they see the price tag attached to this frankincense and myrrh ode to the ancient Egyptian fragrances. But not you, of course. You are a millionaire and we all hate you for being so rich
