Luxury

A good or service not considered essential. Examples of luxuries include massages, gold watches and sail boats. Luxuries are often, but not always, fairly expensive. Luxury industries tend to be fairly prone to hard downturns during a recession. For example, if one is concerned for one's own job security, one is less likely to splurge on a massage. However, some luxury products, such as custom yachts, are considered recession-proof because they only appeal to the ultra-wealthy, who remain wealthy even in hard times.
