    Here's how I would translate:

    "Your perfume smells very nice! Could you please tell me which brand of perfume you are wearing?"

    In general, what you had was pretty accurate, and westerners will be able to understand you. But a couple points:

    1. Even though people are starting to use 'sweet' to describe smell, but I think in general it is more appropriate to say something smells nice, rather than something smells sweet.

    2. I would not say 'someone' smells nice, it is a bit too close and personal (unless you're talking to someone very intimate). Not to mention technically it is the 'perfume' that smells nice, not the person.
