Ever wondered what Sarah Cameron (aka Madelyn Cline) smells like? Well, we can answer that right now actually—she definitely smells incredible because Madelyn Cline's perfume of choice is a cult favorite scent, dubbed one of the best long-lasting perfumes money can buy.

Much like Rihanna's favorite perfume and even Niall Horan's fabled cologne, the Outer Banks actress's favorite fragrance resides high on the list of the industry's best perfumes—and clearly, considering her career trajectory what with Knives Out: Glass Onion and all, it's the scent of success.

And while we're all clued in on Madelyn's makeup routine (not to mention Madelyn's boyfriend sitch), we just need to know what perfume she wears on set and on the red carpet. So, what perfume does Madelyn Cline wear, exactly?

What perfume does Madelyn Cline wear?

If you're a lover of floral perfumes with a warm, woody edge, you're in luck! Madelyn revealed in her Vogue Beauty Secrets video that her signature scent is none other than Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge 540—currently one of the most popular perfumes around.

This fragrance features a hypnotizing blend of soft jasmine, with warm and spicy perfume notes of amber wood, cedar and saffron, creating a dreamy aroma that's both comforting and familiar but rich and sweet, the type of scent that makes people want to linger for just one more whiff.

It's basically a guaranteed compliment bringer with every spritz—especially if you follow Madelyn's tip on where to spray your perfume. In her Vogue video, she shared: "Something I learned is that if you spray the back of your neck lightly, then that’s what people smell when you’re walking away from them".

Aim for your pulse points with this decadent scent, and remember not to rub your wrists or to mist your perfume, because you don't want to waste a drop—especially since this bad boy is on the pricier side.
