Fragrance News - Dollars & Scents -- Don't judge a book by its cover -- or a perfume by its bottle. Fragrance experts single out the best scents under $60 (and explain why "smelling like cheap perfume" isn't the insult it used to be).

CK One, $42 -- This unisex citrus-herbal blend was an enormous hit in the '90s. Today, insiders praise it as "incredible," says [scent-designer Dawn] Goldworm. "And the perfumers who worked on it, Harry Fremont and Alberto Morillas, are still some of the best in the industry. So many people try to rip off CK One in laundry detergents and niche fragrances." The scent introduced a new kind of citrus note to Americans, says [perfumers Francis] Kurkdjian. "Prior to CK One, you'd find citrus notes mostly in a cologne, like Acqua di Parma Colonia or Guerlain Eau de Cologne. CK One set up a pattern of fragrances being sexy and fresh, and before that you couldn't imagine those qualities being together.
