Seriously? This Is The Best-Selling Fragrance In America?

by Stephanie Montes

If you had to guess, what do you think the number-one-selling fragrance in America is? Okay, we’ll give you a hint: You probably owned it (or at least a very similar variation of it) back in your middle-school days. Marie Claire revealed that Bath and Body Works sells a whopping 30 million units of Japanese Cherry Blossom per year, making it by far the top-selling fragrance in the country (to put things into perspective for you, second place sold only one million). This tells us one of two things: Either middle-schoolers run the world or it’s possible that 30 million women were introduced this scent via a Christmas gift set. Nonetheless, we’re shocked to find that this is what America smells like—we would’ve guessed it was Chanel No. 5.
