One of my very most worn perfumes has got to be the original Fantasy by Britney Spears, I can't get enough of that gorgeous sugary sweetness! Whenever I'm getting ready and can't decide on a perfume to wear (or don't have anything in particular in mind) then it's usually the one I'll grab- I absolutely love the scent, and because it's only cheap it's just a nice one for spraying on day to day. Being a huge fan of the original version I've of course being eyeing up some of the other scents in the range, and a skim through of the notes of Midnight Fantasy and I was sold. Ever the fan of sweet, fruity and vanilla based perfumes it was kind of obvious I was going to love it, but once it arrived it was even better than I'd imagined. I'm quite easy going when it comes to sweet smelling perfumes and do tend to like most of what I test out, but this is something else. I'm obsessed, seriously you have to try this!
The best way I can sum up this scent is 'berries and vanilla', it's very sweet smelling but unlike the original Fantasy (which has notes of cupcake and white chocolate) it's not quite as 'sugary'. It's really fruity on first spray but by the end of the day- and I really do mean the end of the day, the staying power of this stuff is amazing- you're left with sweet vanilla and a very subtle musk. I've had so many people ask me what perfume I'm wearing since I've owned this and have all commented on how nice it smells, it's such a lovely scent I can't see how anyone would dislike it. I love the cute sphere shaped gem-encrusted bottles, and I think most people are in agreement that although they're a bit tacky they still look nice- I have no problem having this out on display! Whether or not you're a fan of Britney herself there's no denying that this is a fantastic perfume range, I mentioned in this review last week how Britney Spears perfumes are created under the Elizabeth Arden brand. So while they're celebrity fragrances, they're produced by a well respected and experienced beauty and perfume company.
I honestly can't decide which I perfume I prefer out of this and the original Fantasy, they're quite different so I've been using them equally depending on what I fancy at the time. Either way they're both gorgeous, inexpensive and have incredible lasting power- what's not to like? I urge you to withhold judgement on this one and just go out and smell it because I know you'll be pleasantly surprised.
Have you tried any of Britney's Fantasy perfumes?
