Last week, Lady Gaga confirmed that she'll soon be releasing a fragrance of her own. What does it smell like? "An expensive hooker," Gaga said.

Now, before you judge, you should know that I'm not the only beauty editor who loves her some Kimmie K. eau de parfum. In fact, all of my fellow Total Beauty editors admit to having at least one celebrity fragrance they secretly love. Want to know which ones we keep hidden in our sock drawers and spritz on not-so-proudly? Here they are.
"I'm embarrassed to admit it, but my favorite celebrity fragrance is Dawn by Sarah Jessica Parker. It's kind of ridiculous to wear something with your name, but I really do love the scent. When it launched, an editor I was working with at the time gave it to me as a joke. I sprayed it on and actually liked it -- and I got so many compliments that I brought it home. Now, whenever I wear something else my husband can tell and asks why I'm not 'wearing the Dawn.' It's a fresh blend of vanilla, violet, and citrus -- scents I always love -- so it shouldn't be so surprising that I love this fragrance, despite its name." -- Dawn Davis, New York Editor
"I tried this because I was looking for a vanilla-scented perfume that didn't smell like a bakery. And even though I was thoroughly embarrassed to buy it, I can't deny that whenever I wear it I get compliments. I just never reveal what I'm wearing." -- Paola Gonzales, Senior Graphic Designer

"I'm mortified that I love this perfume. Not only is it a celebrity fragrance, but it's a country star's celebrity fragrance. I hate country music. So I find it super ironic that a huge country star makes my favorite celebrity perfume. And the fact that Tim McGraw has a same-name companion cologne (can you say cheesy?!) should put me off the stuff even more, but it doesn't. It's light and fruity without being too sweet -- it just smells clean and fresh. Top notes are peach and grapefruit, and base notes are cucumber and sandalwood -- a really awesome blend for an everyday scent." -- Meghan Rabbitt, Executive Editor
"I'm not going to lie: When I wear this, I'm afraid that I'm going to attract 16-year-old boys. That said, it makes me feel like I'm a carefree teenager all over again. Once I got over the ugly packaging -- the bendable lip attachments at the top of the bottle are really tacky -- I was able to admit that I really like the scent." -- Christine Lee, Editorial Intern

"I first tried this celebrity fragrance when we were testing scents for last year's Total Beauty Awards and fell in love with it. The bottle is pretty without trying too hard and the fragrance is light and fresh and expensive smelling. I'm OK telling people what perfume I'm wearing when they ask (but only if they ask!), but that's also because Halle Berry is gorgeous and a great actress, so it's a little less embarrassing than, say, a Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian scent." -- Sarah Carrillo, Senior Editor
"I really like Taylor Swift, so I'm always willing to give her a chance. When her new perfume came out, I didn't have high hopes, but it was still Taylor's so I tried it. I was pleasantly surprised. This celebrity fragrance is light but not floral, and it has some earthy tones that ground the scent. Most importantly, it isn't overwhelming. I wish I could say the same for the perfume bottle. I normally love to display my bottles, but not this one. With an iridescent 'I Dream of Jeanie' effect and a tacky charm bracelet trailing off the cap, this is one perfume bottle that stays hidden in the deep recesses of my sock drawer." -- Alexis Finc, Associate Editor
"I practically grew up with SJP teaching me about men, love, and labels on "Sex and The City" so it shouldn't be much of a surprise that I'm a sucker for her fragrances. And I love this one. Unlike so many of the other celebrity fragrance bottles that look like they're made for glitter-eating tweens, SJP's bottle is simple and pretty. I also love the musky floral scent this leaves on my skin." -- Sharon J. Yi, Associate Editor
