Paying more in order to obtain a better quality

Q: Oudh and attars with Oudh can range anywhere from R1000 a bottle to over R10000 a bottle. Is it permissible to spend large amounts of money on small bottles of attar (Hindi oudh etc.), or will this be regarded as extravagance?

Bismillaah

A: No. Paying more for something in order to acquire a better quality is permissible.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
