Elsa Sc S looks at an
array of iconic perfumes
Well Liked Perfumes – Jean-Paul Guerlain once said that “perfume is the most intense form of memory.” Since it is signature attribute it is important to select perfumes with discernment and finesse. In this context it is important to take into account the suitability of perfume for the people who choose to wear them. It must be kept in view that weather conditions also impact perfume choices. It is widely acknowledged that many people stick with their favourite perfumes. Once someone has found their perfume, their loyalty to it tends to last forever. This may be the reason why some of the best-selling perfumes in history have remained so successful.
Chanel No. 5 by Chanel
It was Ernest Beaux’s fifth attempt at creating it but it also turned out to be Coco Chanel’s lucky number. Launched in 1921, a bottle of Chanel No. 5 is sold in the world every 30 seconds.
Shalimar by Guerlain
It was a revolution in 1925 when it became the first perfume of the oriental olfactory family. The scent goes hand in hand with a wonderful tribute to the gardens of Shalimar and the Taj Mahal.
Poison by Christian Dior
Since 1985, this perfume has combined mystery and elegance to great success. Its Oriental-Floral fragrance has become a signature within the company.
Armani Code by Giorgio Armani
Its aroma is elegant and sweet without getting overwhelming. The 2006 invention combines citrus with white flowers, honey, and vanilla, putting ‘Armani Code’ on the Olympus of fragrances.
Opium by Yves Saint Laurent
This fragrance belongs to the Spicy Oriental olfactory family which, combined with its exotic but classic bottle, has made it a top seller since 2009.
Calvin Klein CK One
The icon of Generation X, launched in 1994, remains the fragrance that screams freedom and equality with a Citrus Aromatic fragrance.
Sauvage by Christian Dior
It’s hard to believe that Johnny Depp’s greatest success in recent years has been a fragrance and not a movie. Yet, his face will always be associated with this perfume created by François Demachy in 2015.
Fahrenheit by Christian Dior
This is pure eighties elegance that combines a smell similar to that of gasoline with citrus and violets. It is a strange mix but it has been a hit since 1988. ‘Fahrenheit’ is one of the most suggestive perfumes in history. The Weekender
