Like jewelry or ever-in-fashion items of clothing, some perfumes never go out of fashion. These are the classics that every woman should know.
Just like statement pieces that we have hanging in our closets, there are certain fragrances that never go out of style and continue to be popular year after year. Whether they evoke certain memories when we inhale them or they are just our everyday go-to scent, everyone has that one perfume that speaks to them like no other.
Here are some of the most popular perfumes of all times.
Chanel No. 5
If it was possible to bottle up elegance, femininity, and luxury it would be inside the golden elixir in the timeless Chanel N°5 glass.
Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue
Not only is this fragrance consistently ranked highly on the bestseller lists, it’s also extremely popular with my own customers too. It’s a failsafe option for those who find stronger scents give them a headache, and it’s perfect for business meetings and everyday use where anything too strong could be inappropriate.
Whenever you mention classics, Shalimar is nearly every beauty expert’s list. The passionate scent was created by Jacques Guerlain to capture the romance of Shah Jahan and Princess Mumtaz Mahal.
Passionate pink peony interacts with mysterious black vanilla in this enduring potion by Ralph Lauren.
While many of Dior’s fragrances have become iconic over the years, the 1999 release of J’adore saw the launch of one its the most popular fragrances to date. I have personally found it one of the easiest fragrances to sell among my customers, and not just because it’s constantly being advertised on TV and in magazines (currently fronted by Charlize Theron).
Thierry Mugler Alien
Alien was one of the first super strong yet unusual scents I bought. From the design of the bottle right down to the scent itself, there is something highly unusual yet captivating about it that keeps customers ever mystified.
Paco Rabanne Lady Million
While Lady Million and its male counterpart One Million are fairly new editions to the list with a launch date of 2008, their combined popularity cannot be underestimated. With notes of neroli, orange flower and jasmine sambac, Lady Million continues to retain high sales figures, with both fragrances among the most popular on the shop floor and online.
