Above any other designer perfume brand, House Dior has always had a special place in my heart. After years of hoarding every kind of cotton candy– or fake cucumber–scented body spray atop my junior high dresser, Miss Dior Eau de Toilette was my first-ever “big girl” perfume. It was a Christmas gift from my parents, and I was so besotted with the beautiful glass bottle and sparkling floral scent that I was honestly scared to wear it. Eventually, I started spritzing it on before school every day, and it was like a superpower. I selfishly loved that all the boys in seventh grade told me how good I smelled (what can I say, I was 12), and I loved the way it wore off my gym clothes every other day and permeated my locker. I even went so far as to create a secret stash of those itsy-bitsy sample tubes in my pencil bag so I could surreptitiously reapply before language arts class with my big crush. Over the top? For sure. But it’s a really special set of memories for me and, not surprisingly, seeded my eventual obsession with perfume years later. (Another fun fact: I still have the now-empty bottle of Miss Dior, and I keep it at my parents’ house for nostalgia’s sake.)
I’m pretty sure lots of people have a vivid memory surrounding their first experience with scent, and I know lots of people I love and talk to have equally fond memories of all things Dior—be it Joy, Poison, J’adore, or Miss Dior, the French brand is known for having created some of the most notable and well-loved perfumes in history. And while the holy-grail status of those aforementioned OGs remains strong, the brand continues to roll out yummy new launches season after season.
Since everyone across the globe adores Dior and since we’re heading into prime gifting season, I reached out to Dior HQ to see if I could get a top-secret list of its ranked best-selling fragrances. And luckily, they agreed!
