    Use plain water or mix one tablespoon of liquid dishwashing detergent and one tablespoon of white vinegar with two cups of warm water. Using a clean white cloth, sponge the stain with a small amount of water or the detergent/vinegar solution.

    A laundry stain remover, such as Zout, can also remove a perfume stain.¹

    Oh, I had the same problem. The perfume on the walls is difficult to wipe off and seems practically impossible. I ordered some Perfume decants from an online store and was very excited to try them. The smell is amazing for such a low price. But my younger daughter was not as thrilled with them and threw them at the wall, LOL. The smell was on the wall for about a week and was a huge stain. And I called the special team, who removed all the smells with different substances, and the perfume's stain is no longer visible.

    You could try blotting with rubbing alcohol in a spot where it is not too noticeable. Perfumes contain oils and alcohols, give this a try.

    Hot water and detergent will work fine for most painted walls. However, if your walls need something more potent, try mixing a cup of distilled white vinegar in the bucket of warm water. Vinegar doesn't leave a residue, so don't worry about the rinsing afterwards.
