Review of Elizabeth Arden britney spears CIRCUS FANTASY by Magixz
I was given a generous sample of this fragrance at Sephora, imagine my surprise! I have never been much of a Britney Spears fragrance fan, and this smell hits me like most of all of the one's with her name on them, cheap, cheap, cheap. I think they labeled the name accurately however. ;) Kind of reminds me of a lot of lingering smells one would expect to find at a Circus, and most of those are stinky, stagnant, old kind of odors. Upon first spraying this one on my wrist, I could not make out the name on the plastic bag, so I just sprayed it on, my thoughts were, "hmm...this is not that nice, kind of like a cheap perfume soap." So I got out my magnifying glasses to try & read the name of it. I really was not surprised to see it was a Britney Spears. Not only do most of her fragrances smell similar, they are also packaged in similar bottles. I really do think so many celebs just toss their name onto about anything these days & think people will love it because their name is attributed to it. I would bet money that she has never sprayed this onto herself long enough to know what it actually smells like! She & other celebs probably spritz a dab onto the back of their hand, and say, "oh yeah, I will endorse that for more $ for my bank account." After all, if the creators can get a celeb to put their name on the product, they can charge the big $ for real garbage.
I gave it a 3 on overall rating and that is being generous IMO, but I know there are some who will love this fragrance & who knows, some smells smell better on some people than others, but I find it odd that none of Britney's fragrances, none of them, smell worth a dang on me. That is not normal as far as I am concerned. Usually I can wear one or two of any line of fragrances from a designer. For instance, Elizabeth Arden, some of those smell good on me & some of Chanel, & some of Estee L. etc.
Guess I went off on Britney, sorry gang, nothing bad about the girl here, just her choice of fragrances she endorses. Once again JMO though.
