English term or phrase: "What's the name of the perfume you were wearing yesterday? It smelled very good
Hello! Who can help me with Hungarian? I want to ask somebody (a woman) in an email:

"What's the name of the perfume you were wearing yesterday? It smelled very good."

Köszönöm!
Sabine Jaeger
Nagyon jó illata volt a tegnap esti parfümödnek. Mi az pontosan?
Explanation:

Or a verbatim translation:

"Mi a neve a parfümnek, amit tegnap este használtál? Nagyon jó illata volt."

You could even swap "használtál" for "viseltél".

In case you are not on a first name basis with the woman, use this version:

"Nagyon jó illata volt a tegnap esti parfümjének. Megmondaná, hogy pontosan mi az?"
