About her favorite perfume, Dye says, "When I was 16, my mother gave me my first bottle of perfume: Estee Lauder's Beautiful. I've never worn anything else.

JessicaJessica F. Hinton is a girl who likes pretty pictures, meaningful words and the way her daughters say "mama" to get her attention. About her favorite perfume, Hinton says, "I love Issey Miyake's L'Eau D'Issey because it smells so fresh and flowery.

Original Musk

Price: $43
Debbie Anderson

Debbie AndersonDebbie Anderson is a freelance writer who blogs too occasionally at San Diego Momma. About her favorite perfume, Anderson says, "I love Kiehl's Musk Eau De Toilette. Although at first look, it seems like a manly and '70s-patchouli-smelling choice, these are precisely the reasons I love it. Kiehl's Musk is earthy and grounded and somehow complex once it gets onto the skin, giving off a delightful hint of wafting musk wherever I go." (Kiehl's, $43)

Chanel number 5

Kathy Radigan

Kathy Radigan is a wife to one, a mom of three and the owner of — and blogger about — a possessed kitchen appliance. About her favorite perfume, Radigan says, "My all-time favorite perfume is Chanel N°5. It was my mother's favorite and I can still remember going with my dad to buy it for her for Christmas. As I got older, it became my scent of choice and I loved that it was the first gift my husband ever gave me when we were dating. But my favorite thing about it — other than smelling its unique fragrance on my clothes — is that it was one of the first words my severely speech delayed daughter ever said to me. As in, 'I need my Chanel.'" (Chanel, $130)
