I am a HUGE fan of Fantasy and Midnight Fantasy. So I requested this as a Christmas present (without smelling it first) because I assumed it would be as nice as Fantasy and Midnight Fantasy. I was wrong. The scent isn't hideously disgusting or anything like that, but it's definitely not something I would choose to wear or purchase. It sort of reminds me of cough syrup mixed with a bit of floral sweetness.

I bought this fragrance on a whim without smelling it after seeing it on sale at a local drugstore. I checked out its notes and was drawn to its citrus top notes.
After spraying it on paper I thought it was lovely and I tried it on myself for a few weeks. On me, the scent lasts no longer than an hour on my skin and maybe 4 hours on my clothes.
The orange top notes are beautiful but only last for as long as the initial spritz, after that the citrus disappears and you're left with something sweet and woodsy. I wish the citrus notes lasted a little longer in this fragrance... its dry down is coyingly sweet to the point where it gives me a headache now.
The last time I wore this, I sprayed this on myself and got into the car with my parents, who told me without hesitation that I smelled like an armpit. :(

where to even begin... to me this had potetial to be something great but It lacks that something special to make it stand out to me... very forgetable fragrance. The clove sicks out too much for me which makes it smell like christmast to me... I do like fantasy and midnight but this is just wrong for me at least. I made the mistake of buying it before smelling it knowing britney has good taste in fragrances I trusted her but I lost faith after this one... It didnt even stick around, it faded pretty fast. Thank goodness it was the 1 oz at walmart I bought...

I went on a kick where I wanted to buy all of the Fantasy perfumes. I loved the original fantasy because I am into really sweet scents. Hidden Fantasy isn't a very sweet scent; it's more citrus. When I first spray it, it honestly smells like boiled hot dogs to me, but when it settles into its true scent, it do enjoy it.

Could be that i just got a bad bottle of this, but it smelled like cough syrup on my skin.

Well this one is not overly original… as other reviewers have mentioned it smells similar to Victoria’s Secret Supermodel, Ralph Wild and I’d like to add Burberry Brit to that collection. Having said that, I do really like the fragrance. It’s a fruity oriental to me. Not too sweet, not too spicy and it has a nice creamy vanilla dry down. I really enjoy wearing it and feel it suits most occasions. It is quite a versatile fragrance that I will keep in my rotation. I am by no means in the target market age group for these perfumes, but I think Britney Spears and Elizabeth Arden do a fantastic job on these scents. I find they have great lasting power and smell great.

Amongst my favourite perfumes, I just love this one. It has wonderful staying power and is not overpowering. I love it's fruity floral smell!

It is hard not to be snobbish about celeb scents, but I will do my best to keep an open mind. I really like this one. There I have said it! The topnotes are orange, tangerine and grapefruit which ease themselves into amber, vanilla and stargzer lillies. It is like eating orange gingerbread and custard, you just know it is bad for you but sooo comforting you don't care. Lovely for the cold weather but a bit sickly in the heat I would think. One lippie off for poor staying power but at the price point you can afford to spritz often. This is not just for high school students - try it.

This is in my top 3 perfumes that I own right now. Seriously I love it, and I'm in love with the fact that I only paid 20 bucks for it.
I'm not educated in perfume scent notes at all .. but you can definitely tell there's some type of orange scent in this. When I think orange scent, I think of a light citrusy summer scent, but this is definitely a winter scent for me. It's a warm and cozy orange vanilla perfume.
I can spray 2 spritzes on and it will last me the night. Not overpowering, and lasts a decent amount of time on the skin.
I will repurchase this when I run out, and i will have no problem doing so considering the cheap pricetag.

I grew up in the Britney era, and have seen her many ups and downs. So naturally I've tried many of her fragrances over the years, and never thought good ol' Fantasy could be topped, until I received this little gem in a swap. (thanks leociccone!) This scent is absolutely beautiful. Not strong, not overwhelming, just lovely, clean, warm, and calming. I did some research on Hidden Fantasy online, and discovered the two notes that I find most endearing and original (the orange and the cloves) are the ones that repel most others. I'm an Angel junkie, so it's hard for me to adapt to and love anything else, but there is now room on my vanity for this one. It also prompted my classmate to tell me that I always smell good! Definitely my new favorite.

Out of all the fantasy scents, this is my least favorite. Although the price is reasonable and easy to get a hold of. If you live in the US, you can get a good deal at Marshalls, TJ Maxx, or Ross. The quality of this is also the worst since I could only smell it if I put my nose directly to the place I sprayed it. Once I do smell myself, I smell like Orange juice. No thanks.

I tested this one at the store, but didn't buy. On the right person, this would smell quite nice but it didn't on me. I found it to be a bit cloying and I didn't like how this scent lingered on my skin. It's quite dominant in the orange/mandarin notes with a spicy sort of smell which wasn't too appealing for me. It dried down to an amber/musk combo. It's not bad, but I prefer other Britney perfumes over this.

I was shopping around the mall the other day looking for a nice little perfume i could use on a day to day basis. I liked the packaging on this perfume and it was on sale for like ten bucks so i decided to give it a try.
Big mistake. I find the other scents by Britney Spears, acceptable but i'm a big fan and this is no exception. It smells like orange juice with a little vanilla mixed in there at first. It's very strong in the begining but after maybe thirty minutes later the scent dies down and it just smelled like oranges to me. I don't hate it, and i do use it once in a while but for me? I won't be buying this perfume again. I thought it was very low quality.

Just noticed I have no review for this one! I do find this to be a very pretty sweet scent. I have to be in the mood to wear too sweet perfume, but this one seems to be just sweet enough to smell great. I think there is more actual floral in this one compared to Midnight F. How odd too that Hidden F. cost a lot less than Midnight F.! Perhaps because Midnight came after Hidden??? I think her perfume designers have done a great job on this Hidden Fantasy fragrance.
My only suggestion would be (to all celeb fragrance makers!) Please make these lovely 'Celebrity' perfumes last longer! For goodness sakes! If they are indeed inspired by a few of of our worlds beloved celebrity's, wouldn't we all think that the individual celeb. would insist that her/his scents last, and last! Brings me back to my idea of a good deal. If we have to spray & respray then it is not such an inexpensive scent after all!
Celeb fragrances have never been high on my list to go score, but lately, when I hear a fragrance is being discontinued, well....if I find the ingredients to be those of my liking, I go on a search at all the discount places. Some that I have acquired are actually very nice & compared to my 'ole time favorites, inexpensive. I look at expense differently though. I do not find that if I pay say $20 to $30 for a one ounce, or even a 1.7 oz. bottle of a celeb fragrance it to be a killer deal, since a large bottle (3 oz & larger) of some designer fragrance cost say $80 to $100 on sale. Then it becomes like 60 celeb compared to say 80 designer....hmmm rather get the designer brands. There are some very lovely perfumes (designer included) that I have to spray over and over & for these, I do not mind because I love them that much, but the Fantasy series is not among that group. Not yet anyway, but then I have not tried all of B. Spears scents & I keep hoping some of these celeb designers will read out suggestions and create celeb scents that actually last long enough to get out the door. ;-)
I know this is a long review, but I just had to express myself about designer fragrances, celeb scents & knock off brands. Going to do perfume? Make it last!

Surprisingly masculine on a paper strip. I was too scared to try it on my skin; it smelled like a guy's cologne to me.

If this one costs 10 bucks, I will buy it just for the beautiful bottle which is the nicest in fantasy range, but its scent is the worst. I tried it 4 times on me and even my friends, hoped that I were wrong but actually nothing about it that should be called Fantasy. It opens with faint orange, just a bit warm spicy edge by clove. Not bad nor impress either, then just 15 mins it dried down straight to ordinary oriental vanilla. Done! No more layers, I cant detect any bit of cherry notes, cup cake or gourmand smell. Its very boring, out there hundred perfumes with vanilla base better than this. And the lasting power is a disappointment too, just about 1hour from the opening till it completely gone. The only good thing is this Hidden Fantasy not over powering

This was a must buy for me as I love fragrances with orange notes in them, however this one is a little disappointing. It starts off beautifully, with a spicy orange vanilla scent......and then nothing! This has absolutely no lasting power whatsoever. It could have been lovely, but it hardly seems worth paying money for something you can no longer smell after about 10 minutes, particularly when there are other far superior orange scented fragrances out there such as L by Lolita Lempicka and Liberte by Cacheral.

Definitely would buy this again
It's amazing, it can last 6 hrs or more on me. but its winter right now, maybe that'll change when I wear it in the summer.
I have every one of Brit's Fantasy fragrances, this is really close to my most favourite, but right now I would say Circus is my favourite Fantasy. But anyway. This has a lovely citrus-y opening and it mixes almost completely with floral-y notes afterwards. Then it dries down to something SLIGHTLY creamy, but not as much as Circus, musky, and maintains this bubble-gummy musk scent throughout the day. But you don't end up smelling like candy all day (like Midnight Fantasy--ugh). I would say it's a lot more grown up than Midnight Fantasy, and if you're into musky, citrus-y, deep scents, this is for you. I am definitely keeping my eyes peeled for when this starts circulating and goes on special again. LOVE IT.

This perfume smelled like every other boring floral fruity blend aimed at teens, and then it was undetectable after fifteen minutes. Quite a disappointment.

I love all of BS fantasy line except for this. This was an utter failure. I bought this unsniffed and I instantly regretted it. If bug spray and cherry koolaid had a baby this would be the mistake that came out. I could not for the life of me get it off my skin too! I was considering removing that patch of skin on my wrist just so I wouldnt have to smell it anymore. On a positive note, the lasting power is amazing and the bottle is beautiful. Too bad it wont be joining my other fantasy bottles on my dresser :(
