Top 10 Best Selling Fragrances and Perfumes

The list of top 10 best selling fragrances is always handy for men who don't know anything about ladies' perfumes and fragrances, but who would perhaps like to buy a special gift for the lady in his life.

Conversely, women don't always know what men's fragrances to buy.

It can be very difficult to stand at the perfumery counter and ask for a fragrance when you don't know what to ask for. You feel as if half the time the sales assistants may be selling you something that is old and hasn't been selling well, or that they are on commission and so push a certain fragrance that may not be to everyone's taste.

It's fine if your woman or man has a favorite fragrance and you can just buy her or him more of that. Fragrancesare personal, because they smell different on everyone due to chemical reactions in the skin.

Having said that, the top 10 best selling list of fragrances can give you an idea of what is in style and has the most widespread appeal.

Nicole Miller Perfume For Women by Nicole Miller

Most of the Amazon reviewers seem to love this perfume, which is described as exotic florals and softwoods and designed for day wear.

It is long lasting but caution should be taking when applying it, to only put on a little bit as it can be overpowering if a lot is worn.

Described also as being very strong when first applied, but that it settles down to a soft elegance that smells great.

Lucky 6 By Liz Claiborne For Women. Eau De Parfum Spray 3.4 Oz.

Being sold at a GREAT PRICE just now, Lucky 6 has received some great reviews. It seems to be one of those fragrances that people were hesitant to try, and pleasantly surprised when they did.

It seems that it is not uncommon for this fragrance to not smell so well when first applied, but that after a time it subtly changes as it reacts to your body chemistry, resulting in a long lasting and very feminine scent that is not overpowering.

Described as soft and spicy with flowery tones, this might be the one you'll want to buy and again and again. And at the current price, you'll save a fortune too.

ETERNITY by Calvin Klein Eau de Parfum Spray

This has been a firm favorite for years and continues to be.

If this is one of the fragrances you like the best you might notice that Amazon sells Eternity at an excellent price.

Described invariably as crisp, clean, romantic, appealing, fresh, ethereal, heavenly - you get the picture.

If you haven't tried it before, now is the time to try it, or buy it as a gift because Eternity will not let you down.

Davidoff Cool Water Eau de Toilette Natural Spray for Men

This is an extremely popular fragrance that seems to be popular with everyone.

Described as clean and sensual, no reviewer had a bad word to say about it.

The only issue people had was whether Amazon were selling the genuine product or not because the box arrives unsealed.

Thankfully one reviewer supplied the answer that Davidoff Cool Water always comes in an unsealed box, and that the way to check if it has been used or not is to sniff sprayer immediately on opening the box.

An unused and brand new bottle will have no smell unless the plunger is depressed for the first time and some fragrance is released.

I don't even know how to pronounce this fragrance, unless you switch the V's for U's. Someone must know because it is a top seller.

Described as floral with spicy overtones, it is by all accounts a fragrance for a mature man as opposed to a kid.

Long lasting and sexy, it is excellent for both day and nighttime wear.

Every reviewer over at Amazon seemed to admire this fragrance, except for one man who said "it smells like a dog with flea killer on it". I couldn't resist quoting that, but of course it is always possible this was a quote from a rival company.

Seems overall to be a good buy and well worth considering.

Described as being not at all flowery with undertones of vanilla and spice, this fragrance seems to have become a firm favorite with many women.

Not overpowering but long-lasting and delicate, it is great for day wear especially for those who work in offices or other areas where they are in close proximity with other people.

No-one had a bad word to say about Burberry Brit. This looks like making an excellent gift.

Judging by the reviews, not everyone has been happy with this product.

You either love it or hate it, making it a bit risky to give as a gift. You might be lucky and it is well-received, but it is equally possible the man in your life will hate it and leave it in the back of a drawer.

Those that love the fragrance of Diesel Plus Plus think this is a wonderful scent that is long-lasting and can be used for both day and night-time wear.

There is some suggestion that Diesel Plus Plus fragrance may suit the younger generation better - young men of 12 - 18 years of age.

  • 0.03 oz Dior Hypnotic Poison
  • 0.05 oz Versace Bright Crystal
  • 0.05 oz Bvlgari BVL Eau de Parfum II
  • 0.05 oz Juicy Couture Couture Couture
  • 0.05 oz Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue
  • 0.05 oz Clinique Happy
  • 0.05 oz DKNY PureDKNY
  • 0.04 oz Marc Jacobs Lola
  • 0.05 oz Bliss Eau de Toilette
  • 0.03 oz Givenchy Ange ou Demon le Secret
  • 0.03 oz Pucci Miss Pucci
  • 0.04 oz Yves Saint Laurent Parisienne

This is a great idea. It's a sampler box of 12 different expensive fragrances, so that you can try them at home to see how they smell on you. What they smell like in the shop is not necessarily how it will smell 12 hours later.

Each sampler has enough perfume for several applications, and the box comes with a money-off coupon so that you can then buy a full-size bottle of your favorite.

Great gift idea, especially when you want to give to someone who doesn't know what they like and have perhaps never tried any of the fragrances in the box.

Don't let the name put you off.

According to the Amazon reviews this is one the sexiest and most delicious fragrances around.

While one reviewer right at the top of the list said that Amazon was ripping people off selling fake perfume, look at the date of when it was written - nearly 2 years ago, and since then people have had nothing buy rave reviews for this product.

Paris Hilton by Paris Hilton is THE fragrance to buy for women.

NAUTICA BLUE For Men By NAUTICA Eau de Toilette Spray

This has been a huge seller on Amazon and is so not surprisingly is the number 1 best selling fragrance.

It's described as light, long lasting and reminiscent of the freshness of the ocean.

Most men seem to agree that it is best used for every day wear as opposed to what you might wear on a night out.

It is being sold at a great price. You've nothing to lose by trying it.

The reviews seems to range between saying it's great for the money and it is fantastic for the scent.

Great information. I'm a fan of Eternity, but my favorite will always be Spellbound. As far as men's fragrances go, I'm at a loss and usually get whatever they suggest, for better or worse:) Thank you for this list of the top ten best selling perfumes. Great hub!

Tanks Becky. My favorite is Cachet but I haven't actually worn any perfume at all for years because it attracts mosquitoes (to me anyway), and where I live we are plagued with them!
