    AdG is still the champ. I saw the top selling list of 2005 in a department store and there it was in the number 1 spot. I can't exactly recall the placement of the other colognes, but I can tell you that the top ten consisted of Armani Mania, Armani Code (Black Code,) Polo Blue, Chrome, and Curve. The others I don't remember.

    Here, In Brazil, where fragrances are really expensive (due to the import taxes - 60% plus), the cheaper ones are the best sellers...
    A curious thing is happening now: the 80's classics (that almost everybody wanted to own but didn't because of the price) are now cheap and selling a lot!
    Example: Azzaro pour homme, Lapidus pour homme, Bogart etc...
    Of course, Acqua di Giņ is one of the top 10, but the classics are still the best selling. I think this phenomenon occurs mostly because people expects to smell an intoxicating, strong and with a lot of sillage scent if they are supposed to pay a huge retail price.

    Puffy Dad was claiming that Unforgivable was the best-selling frag in the world for a while... Does anyone know if that was true? I have a feeling that he was exaggerating just a little.

    IIRC, the top 5 in department store sales in the US in 2005 were:

    Men's:
    1) Acqua di Gio (still)
    2) Armani Code (knocked Eternity out of the Top 5)
    3) Polo Blue (still going strong)
    4) Kenneth Cole Reaction (had a great start that year)
    5) Azzaro Chrome (went from #6 to #5)

    Women's:
    1) Estee Lauder Beautiful (it's been #1 for over 10 years now)
    2) Estee Lauder Pleasures (always a strong #2)
    3) Estee Lauder Beyond Paradise (see a pattern?)
    4) Chanel No. 5 (Nicole Kidman campaign held sales stable)
    5) Angel (despite being sold only in around 600 doors, it's in the top 5)

    My bets for 2006:

    Men's:
    1) Unforgivable
    2) Armani Code
    3) Acqua di Gio
    4) Azzaro Chrome
    5) Polo Black

    Women's:
    1) Beautiful
    2) Pleasures
    3) Angel (wider distribution should help)
    4) Chanel No. 5
    5) Youth Dew Amber Nude
    Top 5 for Fall:
    1) Straight to Heaven - By Kilian
    2) New York - Nicolai
    3) Terre d'Hermes
    4) Aventus - Creed
    5)
    Flower of Immortality - By Kilian

    Le Māle is also selling good, and 4711 (unisex) is allegedly the best selling one in Germany (well, that's what the PR-type of muelhens says...)...

    I read somewhere that Joop! Jump was the best seller in Germany last year.
    "I exist for myself, and for those to whom my unquenchable thirst for freedom gives everything, but also for everyone, since insofar as I am able to love - I love everyone. Of noble hearts, I am the noblest - and the most generous of those that yearn to give love in return. - I am a human being, I love death and I love life."

    I always thought Joop! Homme was a staple in the Germany Men's best sellers.....
