Wonderful scent...i have the orig. fantasy and midnight fantasy. This one is not as sweet and gourmand...more citrusy fresh with a bit of woody drydown along the lines of sjp nyc or light blue. Nice everyday fragrance whenyou want to smell fresh and sweet...citrus, strawberry/raspberry scent....good office scent or casual or anytime you want to smell nice.
Love this perfume. Always gets so many compliments with it. Girl I work with got her husband to go out and buy it for her when she smelled it on me. :)
I actually like the scent, but it just doesn't last very long. I loved it when I first put it on, a light fresh citrus scent. You could definitely pick out the lemon and then caramel or vanilla as it dried down. But as I said, it just won't last!
I brought this over the weekend. So far, so good. I love how fresh it smells - like citrus. A nice contrast from the sugary sweet gourmand scents that I own already. Just hope I don't run out of it too quickly!!
Not my favourite Britney perfume, but not too bad either. The notes are more heavy on the citrus side than sweet. Grapefruit notes are stronger in this which gives it a more "fresh" smell, but the raspberry adds a little bit of sweetness to cut back on the tartness. Wears off rather easily on me though so touch up's are required. Other notes in this are peony, lotus, orchid, vanilla and musk.
This is my 2nd favourite Fantasy perfume by BS. It is almost nothing like original fantasy but if you are a fan of fruity but not too sweet perfumes then this is the right perfume for you.
As far as B.S. perfumes go this is one of the best. It has a commonality with her other scents; that undescribable (to me) smell that the others have. But this one is a little above the rest. I got this on sale at Walgreen's after Xmas.
It's every-day wearable and surprisingly I got a few compliments out of it. I guess it wears well on me.
My bottle is out now and I have moved on to find other things, being constantly on the lookout for perfect scents of each perfume genre. I wasn't "wowed" enough to buy this again.
Just found this gift set in Walmart tonight, digging through the beauty clearance section - somehow it got overlooked from Christmas. Had to go to Customer Service to get the price - it was 90% off (sold for $19.00 valued at $47.00). I paid $1.90 plus tax! LOL!!
I'm not a big fan of BS fragrances - I only like Curious. Anyhow, I was surprised when I sprayed this on, I actually LIKED it. It totally reminds me of BBW's Forever Sunshine (which is a major favorite of mine), and Viva La Juicy. It's got that citrus note at the top but then when it starts to dry down, you get that warm, sweet praline and amber note. I'm reading that many say it doesn't have any lasting power, but I don't mind. It's a 1 oz. bottle and I'll carry with me in my purse
So, would I buy this again? Sure, if I got it for such a steal again! But I'd never repurchase for full retail.
I thought this would be the Fantasy I would like after reading about all of them (original fantasy, midnight fantasy and hidden fantasy). I was seeking a replacement for a light, yummy, gourmand scent I could wear everyday, something with citrus and vanilla or a honeyish-caramel note in the drydown. I tried Circus Fantasy on my wrist but it was gone in literally 10 minutes, like I hadn't even sprayed it. On paper I got a great citrusy opening with lemon and orange, I loved it. As it dried down, I began to detect some florals which I also love, I think it was orange blossom. The flowers started to make it smell more refined and delicate...but then about 1/2 an hour later, on my way home, I smelled the strip again and it had turned into a generic college girl smell. One of the numerous body sprays out there, with a lot of sluttish smelling musk and fruit. It just smelled cheaper, and cheaper as it went along.
I decided to try CIRCUS since my favourite FANTASY wasn't in stock. For the price, it was a deal, and I might buy again but FANTASY still remains my favourite perfume. CIRCUS could just aas well be called 'CITRUS'... it's sweet, has a sharp bite, and it definitely does get noticed.
