I admittedly rarely smell fragrances IRL before deciding to order them, so I think my experience in this arena makes me at least somewhat qualified to dole out advice on doing so yourself. My first tip is to gravitate toward fragrance notes that you know you love (the item description usually lists the notes), and my only other tip is to thoroughly read the reviews since those people have actual firsthand experience with the scent.

To save you time, I read tons of reviews for you. Then, I selected 15 perfumes that I'd order on the spot without sniffing them myself. Keep scrolling to shop them all. Who knows? Your new go-to fragrance may be among them.
