REVIEW: Britney Spears Fantasy, The Naughty Remix EDP...

Yes it's me again, with another Britney Spears fragrance review In case you're wondering, there are at least four more bottles on my blogging HQ shelf eagerly awaiting their turn in the review spotlight, and not one of them is by Miss Spears. But I've had this hot pink delight on my bench for several months, so at the risk of boring you, here is my take on Fantasy, The Naughty Remix...
I'll start by saying that despite my passion for quite a few of her other Fantasy flavours, I'm not a fan of the original, but I love love love this variation. Most definitely a gourmand fragrance, to me this smells like a freshly baked vanilla snow cake topped with musk icing. It's ridiculously sweet and chocolatey at first, but the drydown is soft and powdery AND creamy with a tinge of wood. I'm actually quite puzzled as to why I enjoy it so much - the original contains quite a lot of fruit, and I normally go crazy over fruity scents, but there's something about it that bothers me so I've never indulged, even though it seems to be drastically reduced on a regular basis (always a temptation). This blend however has zero fruit, and a bucketload of white chocolate and cupcake - I often find gourmand scents way too sickly and cloying, and it's certainly not what I'd call a grown up fragrance, so it's all a bit of a mystery, but not one I'm going to lose any sleep over. Instead I'm spritzing this from head to toe like there's no tomorrow...

The bottle is pretty-as - a deliciously deep magenta with a sweetheart necklace, and unlike the other round Swarovski studded containers in the Fantasy range, this flacon is slim and curvy with more than a hint of Arabian Nights. While I absolutely adore the look of the others, there's a timeless elegance to this shape, it's far easier to grasp and dispense, and the 30ml size is cute and compact enough for my handbag....

Longevity on my skin is excellent - close to six hours before I even have to think about another dose. While it's not overly potent, it might just be a starter in the headache-inducing department for those who are prone, but don't let me put you off trying this mouth-watering foodie scentsation. Although it's described as sensual, dark and exotic, I don't find anything "naughty" about it at all - to me it's fun and flirty and flavoursome, and perfect for those who are young at heart (like me) 

Take care of you,

    1. Amy I remember you mentioning that in a comment on another post - it's SO interesting how we all like different things hey? I keep sniffing the original whenever I see a tester - I've changed my mind about quite a few fragrances over the years, so it may still happen lol ♥

  2. I didn't love this one either, but that's because I was expecting something more dark and exotic as described. I actually found the Nice version to be more deep and richer in scent
