There’s no better compliment than “you smell good,” right? Whether you have a signature scent you’ve been using for years, or you have a massive collection of perfumes you rotate through, finding a fragrance that works on your skin is so satisfying.

But if you find yourself skipping perfume during the winter because you’re bundled up in turtlenecks and scarves, it’s time to try a hair perfume.

Hair perfumes are different than your typical Eau de parfum because they usually include a nourishing ingredient to keep your locks looking good or have nixed a drying ingredient from its original formula. So, in short, these scents are meant to be spritzed onto hair and leave you smelling amazing with every swish and sway.

Below, shop seven incredible-smelling hair perfumes that won’t break the bank — but will inspire plenty of compliments.
