From the moment Fantasy burst onto the scene in 2005 with its hilariously gaudy bottle and psychedelic packaging, it has won a permanent place on my dresser because the juice inside is just...everything right with the world. The initial burst of tangy fruit quickly gives way to a luscious velvety cloud of cupcakes, white chocolate and vanilla that makes your inner child squeal. The drydown has just enough orchid, powdery orris root, and musk to smooth out the composition, make it a proper perfume, and prevent diabetic overload. Forget about age limits and wearing “serious perfume.” Fantasy is just super-yummy and super-fun, from first sniff to drydown. I do think something happened to the formula (and strength) of this perfume from 2005 to 2018, and I prefer my older bottle just a bit more because it smells richer and two sprays last literally 24 hours on my skin However, the difference isn’t drastic and I’m happy with the newer bottle I keep in my purse as well.If you can’t wear it seriously, then wear it ironically. Just wear it. It’s Britney, b****! ;^)

I absolutely love Red Door but the new formula smells cheap. I understand the company tried to modernize it, but what they have ended up with is a harsh cheap scent. Why not leave Red Door alone? This is a fragrance with a huge following by more mature women, and not you g girls. By modernizing the fragrance, the company lost Red Door's clientele, who are more mature and do not wear the new samey cheap scents. And also but modernizing it, this scent will never be a very young woman or young girl fragrance, so they won't get the youth clientele. So what was the purpose of the company by ruining what their original clientele loved, so they lost them, but will never be a young modern fragrance, because there are many many more hip and cool fragrances that smell modern, so that crown will not reach for Red Door. What a stupid business decision. It is a shame they couldn't think this.

For those who for their own reasons despise this product it's worth explaining the history. This was developed by a physician for burn victims needing a barrier balm to seal in hydration while soothing damaged skin and protecting new forming skin. It worked for that and beyond.Also, at one time many years ago we did not have as many lovely skincare options as we do today. As much as I am sure there are more elegant options this still remains my one old school reliable option for maintaining crack free lips and cuticles. I am never far from a tube of this magical goo.I will add I bloody despise Vaseline. I hate the color, the scent and the insipid tub in which it is contained. But, I know there are people for whom it is their holy grail. Not me. No, no, no. EA 8 Hour Cream is my grail. I will use this as long as I have skin on which to apply.I wear this as an outer eye cream and during cold weather there is a layer of this on my face, hands and feet.I also love A & D ointment but rarely use because whatever body part I apply this to several of my cats cannot stop licking me! I've been using EA 8 Hour Cream since 1985. When I see a tube at HomeGoods it is purchased. I keep one in my bathroom, nightstand and car. I give it for gifts.Truly a classic product that I pray is never given the boot.

It's a lovely soft floral scent. Too bad I dropped and the bottle broke.
