Beyoncé tops list of most sold celebrity fragrance
The 'Drunk In Love' hitmaker's 'Rise' perfume is expected to sell over 750,000 units in the UK, which will net her £1.5 million.

One Direction's new perfume, 'That Moment', is second on the list, with retailer escentual.com, expecting the band's fans to buy approximately 450,000 units.

The 'Steal My Girl' hitmakers' 'You & I' perfume is fifth on the list and will also see them bag another 240,000 units, giving them a combined total of £1.34m.

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry's perfumes also made the top six of the best-selling list with Rihanna, Victoria Beckham, Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga making the top 10.

Fragrance expert Rakesh Aggarwal of online beauty retailer escentual.com said: "It's been a very strong year for celebrity fragrances and it's all about the pop stars.

"Their perfume sales have put them up there with the big players in the market - the designer fragrances - and Beyonce is the ninth top selling fragrance of all categories which is remarkable."

Escentual.com CEO Rakesh Aggarwal added: "Most celebrities earn around £2 per bottle sold of fragrance. "Clearly deals vary in every case but generally it's around 8 to 10% royalty on the profit, so with the huge number of sales for these celebrities in the top ten they are going to have a rather lucrative Christmas this year."
