With 2.8 billion #PerfumeTikTok views and counting, we’re reviewing the hottest fragrances right now alongside Emma Vernon, host of The Perfume Room podcast. Emma is a comic and former matchmaker-turned-fragrance expert who’s been featured in The New York Times, New York Post and InStyle. Today, she’s bringing her encyclopedic fragrance knowledge to help assess which viral perfumes are legitimately #DamnGood – and which ones smell like burnt tires and cotton candy.

From Maison Francis Kurkdjian’s ubiquitous Baccarat Rouge 540 to Ariana Grande’s Cloud to the influencer scent that spurred a 100,000 person waitlist and the one department store scent she believes is worth the hype, Emma isn’t pulling any perfume punches. Plus, Emma reveals her fave budget-friendly find (pssst, now back in stock!), the BIPOC-owned fragrances you need on your radar and the modern bridal scent you did not see coming.
