Best-Selling French Perfumes of 2011

Best-selling French Perfumes for Women. These are the perfumes that were the best-selling in France during 2011. Not all are French perfumes, which shows you that French women cheat on the French perfume companies.

  1. Chanel No. 5 - this has been on the top of the French and American and pretty much every world-wide list for decades. This is pretty much the best-selling perfume of all time.
  2. Christian Dior J'Adore - Giving Chanel No. 5 a run for its money. Dior J'Adore is a fresh green floral that is feminine and has a great marketing campaign behind it every year
  3. Thierry Mugler Angel - French women love them some Angel. Walk down the streets in Paris, and this is all you smell. The lovely part is French women don't drown themselves in it like their younger American counterparts do. They do some light spraying. Done that way, Angel is gorgeous.
  4. Chanel Coco Mademoiselle - This achieved more success than its mother, Chanel Coco. It's a softer, sweeter version.
  5. Kenzo Flower - When you want a soft floriental, you really can't go wrong here. Kenzo does a lot of beautiful fragrances that are easy to wear
  6. Guerlain Shalimar - Another French perfume that has been around for decades and has been on a best-selling list for decades. Shalimar isn't easy to wear for everyone, but when it works, it's a stunner.
  7. Lolita Lempicka - Created after Angel, not really a clone, but a relative, just softer, little more woods, it doesn't scream "love me!" all the time.
  8. Christian Dior Miss Dior Cherie - There are some distinct versions of this. The older one has a great popcorn and strawberry note that the newest version lacks. And that was its charm. It's still a lovely perfume, just less charming and distinctive.
  9. Nina Ricci Nina - This is new Nina, which bears no resemblance to old Nina. Old original Nina was amazing, this new one is, well, okay.
  10. Yves Saint Laurent Paris - This classic has sold well since it debuted, a romantic rose-violet perfume that's held up well.
  11. Yves Saint Laurent Opium - This was the big oriental that launched a thousand copies. Spicy, rich, try it in the pure parfum if you want to see how it really rolls. The parfum lays close to your skin and is incredibly sensual.
  12. Givenchy Very Irresistable - which just goes to show you that French Women don't always have great taste. At least we didn't have this on our list of selling well. Uninspired.
  13. Cacharel Amor Amor - Orange, sandalwood and amber makes this a really nice, warm, bright fragrance.
  14. Jean Paul Gaultier Classique - Comes in the cool woman's figure bottle, with still some awesome fragrance inside. Jean Paul Gaultier is beloved by French women and always will be.
  15. Lancome Tresor - Lancome's little perfume that could. It's soft and delicate and incredibly wearable with its lilting peach, rose, iris and violet notes.
  16. Thierry Mugler Alien - This wasn't a big commercial success in the United States, but French women adore Thierry. He could make a burlap bag perfume, and they would wear it.
  17. Nina Ricci L'air du Temps - The delicate feminine floral that's been around for decades. Reformulations have changed it, and the vintage is much better than the current formulation, but it's still a beautiful little perfume
  18. Paco Rabanne Black XS for Her - a woody fragrance with a violet-rose heart, and one I'm not even familiar with.
  19. Clinique Aromatics Elixir - It makes me proud to see both French and American women love this gorgeous little chypre. As long as it is on this list, I have hope for perfume's future.
  20. Lancome O de Lancome - A more unknown Lancome in the United States that French women love, it's a nice citrus, orange blossom and amber perfume.
