There are plenty of celebrity-owned hotels out there, but so many trade substance for scene. And almost none of them provide the Cinderella experience of making you feel like one of the family.

Hotels these days have caught the scent, commissioning signature fragrances that they hope will transport guests long after their stays, feeding an estimated $300 million scent-branding industry, say industry experts.

It's hard to choose. For casualwear, I love the boho glam of the 70s, for formalwear the feminine shapes of the 50s and for sheer eye candy, the fringe and flair of the 20s.
