sweet mouth I am not sure if the phrase Sweet Mouth is proper English as I assume it is just literal translation of the Chinese phrases - (sb) 嘴巴(mouth)真甜(so sweet) This Chinese sentence does not have any negative connotation. If I say this sentence to an English speaker - You have a sweet mouse. Will he/she get offended? Does this sentence have a negative connotation just like the word flatter in English? Or it just means the person is very kind and he/she always says something nicely? Thank you for your help. :)

I think if you were to tell someone that they have a "sweet mouth" they would take it as a way of saying their mouth is physically attractive like "you have pretty lips". If you want to acknowledge that someone always has a kind word to say, then simply being literal and saying, "You're very nice. You always have a kind word to say." or "You're very kind hearted." should work.

Hi Haru, I would not use neither Sweet Mouth or Sweet Mouse. People will not understand you. It is not negative, just, nobody ever says it.
