synonym for perfect

impeccable

adjective [ im-pek-uh-buhl ]

impeccable is another word for perfect

To call something impeccable is to emphasize its lack of flaws, faults, or blemishes, and to suggest that it is beyond reproach. Given that criteria, it’s no surprise that impeccable also connotes rarity and—drawing on its earliest sense in English, “not liable to sin; incapable of sin”—a degree of virtuousness. An impeccable reputation, for instance, is one untainted by scandal or intrigue, and impeccable credentials are so squeaky clean, they leave no room for objection or doubt.

Commonly found as

impeccable credentials, impeccable timing
The hiring manager was impressed by the job applicant's impeccable credentials.
otherwise impeccable
The embarrassing gaffe during his speech was the only blemish on his otherwise impeccable record of public speaking.
