15 perfumes that *always* get compliments.

A thing that everyone wants: to be that person who always gets complimented on their perfume. 

It's true! Don't lie. We all do. 

While we may all have different preferences when it comes to our signature scent, it's the best feeling when someone asks what we're wearing. We froth over it. Go home and tell our family/friends/pets/anyone who'll listen.

Because it literally just re-confirms everything you've ever known: you have impeccable taste.
