We all have our favourite Jo Malone London perfume or candle; that one fragrance that makes its way onto our birthday or Christmas wish lists every year.
Whether you're partial to a little Lime Basil & Mandarin or Orange Blossom, which is reportedly Duchess Catherine's favourite, we all know and love at least one of the brand's iconic scents. (In our case, it's several.)
Jo Malone London has now revealed its best selling colognes and candles to woman&home, and it makes for very interesting reading.
Although these stats are from the UK, it's likely that the list is similar all around the world. Can you guess which iconic fragrance has bagged the top spot?

The most popular Jo Malone London colognes
5. English Pear and Freesia Cologne
In at number five is English Pear & Freesia, a light and fresh scent that combines the two aforementioned notes on a base of patchouli. It sounds like we're stating the obvious here, but it really does smell how a freshly cut pear should – delicious, fresh and uplifting.
Top notes: King William Pear
Heart notes: Freesia
Base notes: PatchouliView Deal
4. Peony and Blush Suede Cologne
Next up on the list is Peony & Blush Suede, which is about as luxury as sweet floral fragrances get. Instantly recognisable, the heart and base of peony and suede are finished off with top notes of red apple for a crisp, fresh spritz.
Top note: Red Apple
Heart note: Peony
Base note: SuedeView Deal
3. Myrhh and Tonka Cologne Intense
Taking third place is one of the brand's cologne intense offerings – richer, deeper scents created using precious ingredients. Myrrh and Tonka is velvety and ever so slightly sweet, with warming notes of vanilla, almond and lavender. It's truly delicious.
Top notes: Lavender
Heart notes: Omumbiri Myrrh
Base notes: Tonka BeanView Deal
2. Lime Basil and Mandarin Cologne
In the interest of complete transparency, we'd probably have put our money on this cologne taking the top spot – but we'll settle for it coming in second place. Zingy notes of lime and basil wear down to a heart of basil on a woody base. Many a citrus scent lover's favourite.
Top notes: Mandarin
Heart notes: Basil
Base notes: AmberwoodView Deal
1. Pomegranate Noir Cologne
By now you've probably guessed which scent bagged the top spot because it hasn't appeared anywhere else on this list. The UK's favourite Jo Malone fragrance is of course, the delicious Pomegranate Noir Cologne. With top notes of fruity pomegranate and plum paired with pink pepper and spicy woods, it's a warming classic.
Top notes: Pomegranate
Heart notes: Casablanca Lily
Base notes: GuaiacwoodView Deal
Considering the positive impact that fragrance can have on our mood, there's never a bad time to treat yourself to a new candle or perfume, we say.
