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.
