“There are different levels of coverage for personal property. You would want to review your policy to see if your perfumes have a separate sub-limit (a maximum amount payable, usually for jewelry or other high-value items). There is likely a deductible as well.
It may be possible to cover the perfume collection separately as scheduled (specifically listed) personal property, depending on the insurance company. It may come down to whether the insurer considers the perfume to be a consumable (something that gets used up) or a collection. “
