The Top 5 Classic Perfumes for Women

Perfumes may come and go with the seasons, but a few special fragrances never go out of style. Here we run down the 5 most classic fragrances in the past 100 years. You'll notice all of these launched in 2 specific decades: the roaring 20s and the 1940s when America was recovering from World War 2 and people began spending money again. 

These are the classic scents that launched to huge acclaim, and continue to be produced, worn and loved by women today.

In 1921, Coco Chanel asked perfumer Ernest Beaux to create something that "that smells like a woman, not a flower bed."

The resulting elixir would become the world's most iconic fragrance. An instant sales success when it was born, Chanel No. 5 remains the grande dame of perfume sales to this day, with a bottle sold worldwide every 30 seconds. Today, many hot celebrities, including Eva Mendes, Victoria Beckham, Jessica Alba and Celine Dion reportedly wear Chanel No. 5, no doubt attracted by the brand's sophistication and womanly glamor.
