^Best perfume and most popular perfume are unfortunately not the same thing.
The French list of perfumes doesn't seem to have many American perfumes, and I think that although many of them on the list are popular in the US, like Coco Mademoiselle etc. that a list for the US could contain stuff like Light Blue, some Donna Karan scents, more Calvin Klein's, or American designer scents, etc.
Also, I have never smelled Chanel No. 5 on anyone but myself and my grandmother. If it is the best selling fragrance of all time, shouldn't someone like me with a heightened scent awareness smell it every once in a while? I think that it is sitting at home unused on everyone's dressers.
