Perfume does something very special: It provides an instant confidence boost with one simple spritz. But finding your signature perfume can prove somewhat challenging with the abundance of musky, floral, citrus or even woodsy notes to choose from.

Likewise, you may have trouble deciding whether you should splurge on designer perfume brands like Chanel and Dior, or opt for more budget-friendly fragrances by the likes of Aveda and Victoria's Secret. With so many scents and brands, how exactly should a gal start her search for a signature scent?

That's where our readers come in. They've spritzed-and-sniffed just about every fragrance out there and weighed in with their reviews — and we've added in a few editors' picks too. Count down to see which scent topped our best perfume list. The answer may surprise you — and leave you with your most perfect perfume yet.

Best Perfume No. 21: Glossier You Eau de Parfum, $60

TotalBeauty editors' pick

Why it's great: "You" is an appropriate name for this perfume, because that's exactly what it smells like — with some slight improvements, naturally. It blends flawlessly with your natural scent, adding a light musky, fresh — and dare we say sparkly? — mood that's always welcome. The minimalist pale pink ombre bottle is another major plus.
