Once again, Parlux's perfumes failed me, Its cheap, very sweet (in a bad way), smell likes sweet medicine :-( Im a gourmand scent addict, after reading ton of good compliments bout this, I thought I have to try it. Oh gosh I was completely disappointed, first notes are synthetic sweet stand out by apricot mix with something like salt caramel then dries down to slightly vanilla note. Out there many perfumes with vanilla note better than this one a lot. And the bottles is damn ugly too. Britney Fantasy is much more better! This Fancy somewhat alike a wrong version of Fantasy. Yuck
yummmy! this perfume smells sooo goood .. you just want to eat yourself!! its very strong so i would recommend spraying in the air and walking through it. but i get a lot of compliments when i wear it and its the best!! i love it
I wouldn't normally be into this perfume. I really think most celebrity perfumes are rushed into production and most celebrities really don't have a say in the perfume itself. But with Fancy by Jessica Simpson I beg to differ. I know she had a creative say in her Desserts Line... (major disappointment), but I think she learned and moved on. The scent of Fancy reminds me a little of "Creamy" .. or was it 'Dreamy' in the Desserts line..(Is it 'chicken or 'fish?!?) . Anyhow the one that tasted/ I mean smelled best! (Just reviewing this fragrance is dropping my IQ 20 points!) However, the best part of Fancy is the incredible, skin loving drydown!! Soft, sweet and reminds me of Escada Collection! Escada's Collection was discontinued long ago and has earned a wonderful reputation on the FB. In fact, it's probably the number one requested "please bring back this discountinued fragrance.' mentioned on the FB. If you look on Ebay -- you'll see sellers asking a ridiculously high price for a 1.7 oz. bottle of Collection that originally once sold for under $30 dollars a bottle. But it's worth it... it's that good. Fancy delivers pretty top notes of pear, caramel and general melange of sweetness, but the best part is that ~incredible~ Escada Collection drydown. It's worth it to have a bottle in your 'collection' if you liked Escada's. FBW for me indeed!
Jessica Simpson's Fancy smells exactly like black licorice to me. I asked my son and that's the aroma that he picked up too. Even on drydown I am still getting licorice. I love the aroma of black licorice but not on me. Not as the perfume that I'm wearing.
I have gotten more compliments on this fragrance than any other one I own!! Delicious scent! Men seem to adore it! This is now a staple of mine!!
The best gourmand perfume I have. It's a dreamy vanilla based fragrance. The bottle is as beautiful as the smell. It's very long lasting also that made this perfume a winner on my list.
I do think this is a nice smelling fragrance - sweet, warm, and caramely at the same time. But it's a bit heavy on the vanilla which reminds me too much of my Vanilla Fields days in high school so this is not a keeper for me.
***edited to add***
I could still smell this on my wrist the morning after I tested this at the department store and I found myself loving the way it smelled. I added 1 lippie. Go figure. I might just go buy a bottle.
If I could rename this it'd be "mysteriously sexy icecream!"
Makes me feel like I should be by a fireplace in the mountains and such.
Haha, my dog likes this, she only licked the sample card for this and I let her smell four different ones.
Anywho, wuv it! My favorite so far.
Ebay has this on sale for soooo low...!!!
Can't believe how yummy this smells! I never thought Jessica could create something so sexy and yummy! Her Dessert Treats line sucked because although they DID smell good-they didn't last even one second! They were rip offs!
But this..........omg, omg...it's not only my "signature scent", but I use this perfume as a base note for almost every perfume I own!! LOL
I use spray this before spraying on -Midnight Fantasy (BS) and with that I smell like a blueberry cupcake-yum!
I use this before layoring on VS-Beauty of Brazil and I then smell like a Cupcake Pinacolda coconut bomb! Double yummy!
I use this before spraying on Escada-Desire me-for a more "cupcake" scent so I end up smelling more coffee/cupcake!
I also use this underneath my perfume-Sexy little things (VS) and i smell like a apple cupcake dessert!
The list goes on and on! LOL...I can mix this scent with almost anything, and helps make other scents smell more sugary sweet if I feel like mixing it up a notch!!
I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE this perfume, and I refuse to live without it! ha!
ummmmmmmmmmm...out of all the gourmand "sweet" scents..this is far the very best!
The bottle is simply beautiful, but the scent is the best part. Pears, caramel, cupcakes, vanilla, ummmm...I cannot describe this scent because I am just floored at how nice it is. lol..I can't say enough I guess!
This also lasts ALL DAY. This is BETTER then Pink Sugar, BS>"Fantasy", BS>"In control" (and no, it does NOT smell anything CLOSE to In Control--this is much more cupcakey and prettier"!!) VW>"Princess"...this one is so pretty without causing headaches or just "too sweet." It does have a slight woodsy scent..but that's what makes it sooo desireable..this should've been called "Cupcake Fantasy"..lol..because my husband says that is how I smell when I wear this.
I don't know one man who doesn't like this! Wear it, and men will want to "eat you"..lol..this is my absolute FAVE!
