That doesn't mean, however, that you can't buy perfume based on recommendations online. I've found some of my favorite scents from reading about them or watching a video about them on TikTok. One surefire way to find a good perfume is to look at some of the best-selling ones that are already out there. These perfumes sell like hotcakes for a reason—they're incredibly alluring. Keep reading to find out what the best-selling perfumes are right now at Sephora, Ulta, Nordstrom, and Violet Grey.
