7 Best Celebrity Perfumes -- and the 3 Worst
See which celebrity-endorsed women's perfumes our readers go gaga for and which ones make them gag
See the best and worst celebrity fragrances now.
We'll spare you the trouble and headache of trying on 47 different fragrances -- because our readers already did the nose work for you. While some women "only bought this because it was Gwen Stefani's" (or one of their other favorite celebrity's) other reviewers were "a little nervous to buy something with Britney Spears' name on it" (or felt skeptical about a tween star's perfume), but were pleasantly surprised to discover that "it smells good enough to justify admitting in public that I wear a Britney Spears scent." One woman confesses that she is "not a big Paris Hilton fan, but I could bathe in" her perfume. Another reviewer gushes about Hilton's scent saying, "I could drown myself in this perfume and still not get tired of it." Bathe and drown? Wow, that's some pretty hyperbolic language there, ladies. As for the worst ones, a reviewer who is "a huge Mariah Carey fan … had high hopes for this one" but it "smelled overwhelmingly sweet, but not in a good way." And other readers found some of the stars' fragrances to be "BOOOOORING!" or "like granny perfume that has been sitting on the dresser for 40 years." Ouch.
But of course, the true litmus test for an overwhelming amount of our reviewers is this: Does the boyfriend/finance/husband/significant other think it smells good? If so, readers dab it on twice a day; and if not, it pretty much gets thrown to the dogs. And not to take two steps back in the feminist movement, but one woman sums up the overall sentiment of most reviewers by saying, "my husband can't stay away when I wear this, and to me that's the real measure of any fragrance."
