There might have been less opportunities for getting dressed up and going out this year but that hasn’t stopped people from making sure that they smell great. Despite the shops being closed for a large section of 2020, online sales are booming and the perfume industry has seen consistently high volumes of perfume orders, as people looked to treat themselves during lockdown.
Now that lockdown restrictions have mostly been lifted, online perfume sales are still going strong, with perfume remaining as a much-needed beauty product. Here are the top selling perfumes in 2020 so far:
No.5 Eau De Parfum
The French fashion house keeps supplying the world with the most exquisite (although rather costly) scents. No.5 was first released in 1921 and it is the ultimate timeless, classic perfume.
Daisy Eau De Toilette
Not quite as pricey as the top seller, this one is often described as a ‘youthful scent’, being popular with the younger generations.
J’adore Eau De Parfum
While Daisy tends to attract the younger customers, ’s J’adore is designed for the more mature woman. The scent from Christian was created based on his love of flowers and this beautiful floral fragrance is the result.
Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Eau De Parfum Spray
Described as a floral explosion, emphasised by the ‘flowerbomb’ title and even the bottle is shaped like a hand grenade, if you are looking for a strong scent that lasts for a long time, this is perfect.
While the rest of the top sellers are mainly floral, Angel is an oriental fragrance infused with red fruits, soft caramel, honey and praline, with hints of vanilla and patchouli. The top choice for women who are not keen on floral scents.
The ever popular CK One has been around for over 25 years now and was the first scent sold as ‘unisex’, combining floral feminine scents with the more masculine musk.
London Lime Basil and Mandarin Cologne
has shared some amazing candle and perfume scents with the world and the Lime Basil and Mandarin scent is proving to be the most popular this year.
Bloom Acqua Di Fiori Eau De Toilette
Another floral scent that “celebrates the joy and energy of youth”. This has a very strong and long-lasting scent but is not overwhelming.
There is a huge range of scents available to buy online right now but if you are trying to be more careful with your budget, have you considered using I Smell Like? You can get the near-identical designer scent at a fraction of the cost. Visit the website to find your favourite scent at discount prices.
