When it comes to choosing a new perfume, there are so many brands on the shelves it's hard to know where to begin. Essence's beauty director, Mikki Taylor, happens to have a spectacular nose. She has picked 15 of this summer's sexiest perfumes -- the best for your buck, new celebrity perfumes (did you know Halle has one?), and other new aromas worth checking out.
Halle's perfume, called "Halle by Halle Berry," is definitely a highlight at only $1. It combines two of the star's favorite notes -- fig and mimosa. You in the mood for summer yet? Check out all of Mikki's picks!
