Finding a good perfume sounds easy — after all, shouldn’t bestsellers be the best ones? — but it can actually be a difficult, time-consuming and occasionally mood-killing venture. You do the work, researching the best smells that “suit” your interests, only to have the perfume be an overpowering and headache-inducing flop. Ugh!
