    Default OUTRAGEOUSLY popular fragrances

    I need a coupld of ideas of insanely popular fragrances for males and females from the ages of high school to middle age. The reason is I was going to buy some new cologne to be raffled off for a charity my debate team is hosting for Project Peanut Butter (more info/if you would like to contribute go here: http://community.basenotes.net/showthread.php?t=187466). I need some suggestions for what I should buy.

    Thanks everyone.

    Insanely popular, hmmm? For women, Hanae Mori Butterfly is the first thing to come to mind. What's your price range?

    The only thing I ever smell on American women here in Europe is Angel. It's a total giveaway! I'd definitely go for that one for a raffle, or any of the Angel spinoffs.

    I love Angel, but consider it controversial. It is an "interesting" fragrance that some people love and some people find repulsive. It does sell for an attractive price.

    Could you provide some cost guidelines? That would be very helpful.

    Thanks for all the suggestions so far, some of my original thoughts have been confirmed and new ideas have been added.

    Price guidelines... I'd say under $30 on scentiments/ebay is ideal, but I'd shell out $40 if it were something known for being expensive/popular (i.e. chanel).

    Lovely is the one scent I notice is almost always sold out from all the stores. It must be really popular. And it's also a great scent.

    Good luck with the fundraising!

    A mini survery from this part of the world. I have asked approximately 10 female friends of mine (they reside in Hong Kong or Singapore and who's ages range from 20-35) and asked them what they like. I found that Asians tend to stick with the classics or lighter fragrances.
    Here is my list:

    Lancome - Miracle
    Gucci Envy Me
    Gucci - Envy
    Chanel - No. 5
    Chanel - Chance
    Issey Miyake
    Calvin Klein - Eternity
    Polo Ralph Lauren - Romance
    Michael Kors - Michael
    Kenzo - L'eau Par

    Cheers and all the best!

    would the 80's count? The Strawberry Shortcake edt was insanely popular for girls at the time, even my lil' sister got one.
