While many Trump family products are in the crosshairs with some stores and consumers thanks to a , Ivanka Trump's perfume business appears to be booming. Her namesake Eau de Parfum Spray ($59, ) is currently holding the first spot on Amazon's "Best Sellers" list for women's fragrances — and the roll-on size is currently in the top five ($15, ).
But it turns out people aren't just buying it because they like the way it smells — even though the flirtatiously spicy floral description certainly sounds interesting. It might be a means to support the first daughter, or at least that's what the reviews seem to indicate. "Bought this to support Ivanka after the vicious attacks on her business. I *never* buy perfume without trying a sample first, but did so this time," says . "Big Bonus: I love the scent!"
If it seems unfair that people are giving this item a five-star rating just to help skyrocket it to the top of the best-sellers list, one reviewer points out that the opposite is just as bad. "I know to each his/her own, but it is hard to believe anyone would give this a 1-star rating," says . "Anyone who rates this so low is likely only politically motivated to reduce sales.

It's a strange world we live in where online shopping has been overtaken by politics, but, hey, that's the beauty of Amazon: Everyone is entitled to leave their opinion in the reviews. As for us, the next time we need to stock up on perfume, we'll be heading to a store where we can actually smell the scent before buying it.
