Picks and Pans Review: Is Your Scent Up to Snuff?

As hilarious as it is helpful, Tania Sanchez and Luca Turin's Perfumes: The Guide rates 1,500 fragrances.

YOUR MOTHER'S DAY PICK? Tania: White Linen. It has a protective aura. My childhood might've been easier if my mom smelled like that.

ANY WINNING CELEB SCENTS? T: I hoped Britney's Curious would be insanely great. It's not. Luca: The first J.Lo [Glow] and Sarah Jessica Parker's Lovely are really good.

BIGGEST BUYING MISTAKE? L: Choosing fast. Spray it on, then wait a few hours. The top notes will fade by then.

A CHEAP OPTION YOU LOVE? T: Lady Stetson! L: $20, next to the beef jerky, and it's great.
