Britney - Fantasy: Review

Now I know Britney's Fantasy is not a new perfume by any stretch of the imagination; it was however, a new one to me until I purchased it in the Boots' Boxing Day sale!  I had heard the reputation of Britney's perfumes around the internet and by word of mouth, so at about £10 for a box set, I thought 'why not!?'  Britney is one of the few celebrities who have managed to bring out a successful perfume line, and to me, that's more than just one or two fragrances!  Britney incredibly boasts many, which seem to be popular with mainly girls, teens and young women with their fruity, light fragrances and more than popular price tags.

I think it's quite obvious that Britney is more than aware of her target audience with the whole design and feel of her products - especially Fantasy - with it's Fairytale-esque bottle covered in sparkles.  So, so perfect.  And the smell, my God.  I'm hooked.  I was looking for a cheap, everyday perfume which would keep me smelling lovely for the day.  This does the job, and more.  To me, it smells fruity, floral, vanilla-ry and light; perfect!  Unknown to me, the back of the tubes state that the Britney range is actually licensed to Elizabeth Arden - who knew!?  So no wonder the fragrances are so high quality.  I actually realised that on the tiny print on the bottle, so tiny, I could barely read, let alone photograph, that the perfume is EDP, not EDT.  The likes of my Coco Chanel Mademoiselle sport the EDP tag with glee, so to find Britney's perfumes do too with a bargain price tag is incredible.  The perfume literally stays on my skin until I shower, it's so powerful.

Elizabeth Arden, see?
The Perfume Shop will do the scents for me, because I'm rubbish, I just say 'smells nice', which is no help!

Heart notes - Jasmine Petals, White Chocolate Orchid
Top notes - Red Lychee, Golden Quince, Kiwi
Base notes - Musk, Orris Root, Sensual Woods
Scent - Floral 
Feel - Charismatic, Enchanting, Seductive

In fact, The Perfume Shop is still retailing the gift set I bought from Boots at £9.99 which is an absolute steal! 30ml perfume and 2x 50ml tubes which smell just as good? I might buy another!  So there you have it, Britney isn't only a goddess of the music business.. In fact, I think I prefer her perfume!



  1. great review! I also find it hard to describe perfumes!
    Check out my blog, I've given you an award x

  2. I've never tried a 'celeb' scent, but maybe I need to be less snobby and open up my heart, or nose, to Britney!

    I've awarded you the Versatile Blogger Award because I like the way you write!

  3. @Beauty Balm; thank you! and thank you for the award hun, it's very kind of you :) xx

    @BDP; I used to use Kylie's 'Sweet Darling' which smells like candy floss, but it's been discontinued - cue finding Britney! But yes, celeb perfumes seem great for everyday, especially Britney with her EDPs! Also, thank you for the award, I'm very grateful :) xx

  4. Her perfumes are so beautiful, especially this one!! Would never have noticed that it's Elizabeth Arden right enough, very interesting!


  5. @lily; i know, the first moment i sniffed it i knew i'd be wearing it all the time! and i only happened to notice by chance, i'm a bottle reader ;) xx
