Fragrance Friday: My Top Three Celebrity Perfumes

Friday, July 25, 2014


If I'm honest, I couldn't care less when it comes to celebrities. I have little interest in the latest celeb news, and while I can appreciate the music, acting or talents of the person that's about as far as it goes really. But I have to admit, I've become a bit of a sucker for celebrity perfumes over the last year. They were something I avoided in the past simply because I wasn't interested on the person behind the fragrance, but if you can look past that you can often snag some gorgeous inexpensive scents. The great thing about them is because they're designed to appeal to the masses they do tend to smell nice, and while many are your generic sweet/ fruity/ vanilla scents if that's what you're into (I definitely am!) they're great for adding some new fragrances to your collection. Here are three of my favourite celebrity perfumes, if like me you're not bothered about celebrities trust me- they're still well worth checking out!

Britney Fantasy £24.95 (100ml)
I suppose this one is a bit of a guilty pleasure, it's definitely not a grown up or sophisticated scent but I wont be giving it up any time soon! Sugary sweet and fruity with so much vanilla, everything about it is fun and girly down to the tacky pink gem encrusted bottle. This is a really strong smelling perfume and it lasts for ages too. I'm also in love with Midnight Fantasy (blue bottle) and can't actually decide which of the two I like best- if you like sweet scents then no doubt you'll be as obsessed with these as I am.

Lady Gaga Fame £32.95 (100ml)
I've written a full review on this here so I wont go into too much detail again. While it's sweet and fruity it's a LOT different to Ms Spears offering, and has a uniqueness to it that just keeps you coming back for more. There's a very slight floral undertone and it has a note of incense in there which sounds horrible (I generally hate the smell of incense) but it's not overpowering in this and really works. This is probably one of the longest lasting scents I own, I can still smell it hours after spraying it on.

Beyonce Heat £12.95 (100ml)
I fell in love with this after borrowing a friend's bottle and couldn't believe how nice it was, so I was really happy to unwrap my own bottle on my birthday this year. It's a gorgeous soft sweet scent, quite warm and vanilla-y definitely not too intense or over the top. Plus Beyonce is practically a goddess anyway, so I'll have whatever she's having. The only downside to this is that it doesn't seem to last very long on me despite being an EDT, compared with the two perfumes above it seems to fade a lot more quickly. However I do still love it, and I can't believe how inexpensive this is for such a nice perfume. Under £13 for a huge 100ml bottle? Total bargain!

What's your favourite perfume? Do you own any of these?

  4. I find it quite interesting what you say about Fame, I have this and I love the fragrance but I find it doesn't last very long at all on me at all and I have to keep re-applying as the scent just disappears after a couple of hours xxx Thou Shalt Not Covet

    1. Wow really? It's definitely one of the longer lasting ones for me, I find I get up to 10+ hours from it! Although I have the same problem with the Beyonce one and have read reviews of people who say it lasts ages, so weird how that happens with different people x

  6. Britney Spears Midnight Fantasy is my favourite but this one is so yummy too, I really love sweet perfumes. When I am wearing it people always say that I smell amazing! Britney is a bit out of fashion now but her perfume certainly isn't.

  9. I haven't smelled Lady Gaga's perfume (I know, I'm so late to the party!), but I love Britney's perfumes in general! (Except for "Curious," but that's another story for another day, lol). I think that, as consumers, we can easily tell which celebrities are very dedicated when it comes to the creations of their perfumes, just by smelling them. I find that Britney and J-Lo to be two of the ones that seem excited about their perfumes; these scents smell like what their endorsers would wear. And then there are the celebrities who'd slap their names on pretty much anything (usually you can tell because these creations usually smell like watery blends of generic florals and citrus, very bland).
