The demand for retro perfumes and aftershaves such as ‘Obsession’ and ‘Jazz’ has expelled the celebrities from the top of the perfume charts.

When the demand for 80s fragrances rose by 37 percent last month at the online store halfpriceperfumes.co.uk, website founder Jason Zemmel was left puzzled.

“We’re not sure if it’s nostalgia, a full-on Eighties revival or young people emulating their parents but our sales of Eighties scents shot up massively,” The Daily Star quoted Zemmel, as saying.

“The most popular female fragrances are Charlie, Obsession and Fendi, while Jazz now tops the most popular male scent.

“Meanwhile, sales of celebrity scents are falling - some are selling less than half of what they were doing a year ago,” he added.

Zemmel has said that may be lack of star quality is responsible for the falling sales of celeb scents.

“It seems the calibre of the celeb has declined,” he said. (ANI)
