5 Most Popular Perfumes of All Time

Ever wonder what makes a scent so special? While fragrances alter their smell on different skins, it is clear that there are some all-time favourites in the perfume game. And as it turns out, Perfume Clearance Centre stocks all of the most popular perfumes of all time!

5. L’Air Du Temps by Nina Ricci

This feminine fragrance smells of your nana’s backyard. Carnations and gardenia are the most prominent notes, and the popular scent has since launched a range of scented toiletry products to please their many fans.

4. Opium by Yves St Laurent

Though the name of this fragrance has sometimes attracted some controversy, this oriental fragrance has long been in the most sold perfumes worldwide. With top notes of mandarin orange, coriander and pepper, you can smell the Asian influence behind the well-loved scent.

3. Shalimar by Guerlain

Another oriental scent in the top five, Shalimar by Guerlain is a best-selling perfume in multiple countries. With nots of bergamot, amber, iris and vanilla, Shalimar has earned its reputation as the ‘forbidden fragrance.’

2. Joy by Jean Patou

Joy was launched during the great depression, perhaps as a means to try and bring some more joy to the world. A combination of jasmine and roses, Joy is said to be “a light avalanche of flowers form the east and west.”

Chanel No. 5 by Chanel

The ultimate luxe girls habit to starting the day always includes a spray of Chanel No. 5. The perfume was launched in 1921, when Coco said she wanted to create “a woman’s perfume with a woman’s scent.” While most perfumes at the time were derived from a single floral scent, Chanel No. 5 was the first to combine the smells of various flowers to create what is today the most popular perfume.
