Britney Spears Fantasy
=== Who is Briteny Spears? ===
Born 2nd December 1981, Britney Spears statred her career on 'The Mickey Mouse Club', but in 1998 music channels went mad for her single 'Baby One More Time' and it seemed she was never off the screen. This is when she was probably brought to the British publics attention. Over the years she released many a song and also albums, but I think predominantly what we do remember when we think of Britney was her very public breakdown in 2007 after the birth of her two sons. She shaved her hair off, threw umbrellas at paparazzi's cars and it seemed like a different persona had taken over the bright clean Britney Spears who we saw in 1990's.
Things seemed to go in a downward spiral for Britney as she lost custody of her children to her ex-husband and she was commited to a psychiatric ward involuntary. Her father took control of her assests and whe she was released from hospital things did seem to be looking brighter for her.
She seem's to want to make a comeback with her Femme Fatale tour which she started back in June and has released new songs and an album, she has also had a new fragrance come out in 2011.
=== Fragrance ===
Britney has teamed with Elizabeth Arden to create a range of fun fragrances. She has released 10 to date. Curious was the first, followed by Fantasy - The product I am reviewing.
With the swirly patterned box and the glorius, sumptious bottle you can see why this perfume is called Fantasy, it conjurs up an image that you would imagine in a fantasy. The fuschia pink bottle is round in shape like a ball and is dotted with little green crystals. The lid is a pink ball which sit's neatly upon a pink ring which was once emblazoned with an interlocking band of crystals, now it is mearly a pink plastic ring with a somewhat spikey feel.
The bottle is incredibly pretty and could lead you to believe that the fragrance it holds should be just as good.
The fragrance first hit's you with the Top Notes of fruity Kewi and Red Litchi giving a fruity opening scent this however blends into a sickly chocolatey Heart which is sickly as this settles though it does blend nicely into the woody Base notes.
=== My Opinion ===
Yes, it's got a gorgeous bottle and they inital scent is fruity enough for it to be nice, but as soon as the chocolatey notes make their appearance it does get so very sickly. Luckily it isn't too strong a scent as it could and more than likely would give me a headache. The woody base notes do however take the edge off and it does settle into a nice scent.
=== Price ===
I have seen this on sale in Wilko's and other places but it can also be bought from many online shops.
Amazons current prices are as follows ~
30ml ~ £14.60
50ml ~ £14.95
100ml ~ £20.75
As you can see, it is quite decently priced and it would make a great pressie for any girly girl!
Summary: Pretty bottle, good scent but sickly!
