Dior stood by Johnny throughout his recent trial, and sales of the cologne he advertises, Sauvage, rose at retailers, the Wall Street Journal reported in early June.

The publication stated that the cosmetics retailer and its competitor Ulta have both seen increasing sales for Depp’s cologne, making it among their top-selling fragrances online.

Meanwhile, Johnny is still entangled in legal battles with his Amber Heard – as the actress fights to overturn a court’s June settlement against her.

He was awarded $10.35 million for damages after a defamation suit against his ex-wife.

But The Aquaman actress has appealed for the award to be overturned, two months after she was ordered to pay.

Amber was denied a request for a mistrial a week before, arguing that one of the jurors on the case shouldn’t have been eligible to serve because his summons was intended for his father, who had the same name and lived at the same address.
