Wow! I was not expecting to love this...or even like it for that matter. It smells wonderful. Fresh blueberries with a side of vanilla cream : ) Yummy! It is one of those scents where I am constantly sniffing my wrists! It reminds me of herbal essence shampoo....the original one in the pink bottle from years ago...which is a good thing! I bought a large 3.4 ounce bottle of this at TJ Max for $19.99. Can't beat the price!

Omg I wanted to love this and I thought I would but it was too sickly sweet for me and I love vanilla scents! I bought the full size and now I don't know what to do with it.. The first time I wore it out, the second I stepped in the car, my friend asked me if I'd just eaten a bunch of skittles and that that's what I smelled like. I was too embarassed to say I'd bought a perfume to smell like this.

WOW OMG WOW...I don't know why I did I guess cause I was bored shopping with my friend but I sniffed and fell in love I sprayed it on and walked around khols just sniffing myself It smells so yummy. I had to buy it. When my hubby got home he kept saying "whats that smell?" once he noticed it was me he said "yum you smell like tingleberrys" lol he said "tingleberrys" because the scent made him tingle it smelled so yummy. He loves it and so do I.

UPDATE: I need to buy the big bottle Hopefully I can find it in a place like Marshalls. My husband is so in love with the scent that if I don't wear it he'll ask me to put it on and after a few hours (on me it last about 5hours) he'll ask me to reapply. I feel bad that a few months ago he bought me my beloved DG light blue the biggest bottle they have and since buying MF I haven't used DG light blue at all and I don't think I will anytime soon.

I got this on a whim at Winners for $20 CAD.

I'm usually very picky with fragrances, but I heard good reviews on this... And I thought the packaging was quite cute. (I am 19)

At first I only used one spray on my wrist (Not how I usually wear perfumes), and I didn't smell anything at all. It was horrible, and I thought I'd regret the buy.

However, when I started spraying it on my chest, 2-3 times, it dries down to a wonderful berry scent. I don't smell much vanilla, but it smells great.

It's not too sweet (like cotton candy fragrances, or bakery goods in my opinion) and is the right amount of subtle subdued berry.

It doesn't smell like a cheap berry lotion, and I love that it smells a bit more upscale than that.

It ALSO doesn't have the disgusting alcohol scent that many perfumes/sprays have. I love the scent all day, and it's one of the fragrances I will never regret buying!

(I've been trying this fragrance out for over a month now so I'm sure on this. :))

Edit: December 7, 2010.
This is my go-to winter or fall scent. During the summer, it's just wrong and off with the chemistry, but it's my fave in the winter! Loove it!

When I give a Britney Spears fragrance four lipsticks, I do it relatively. I donít think Midnight Fantasy is of the same quality as most of the other fragrances I might rate with four Ė say, LíArtisanís Safran Troublant, or Chanelís Coco Ė however, I do enjoy its loud, sweetshop berry and need to credit it. Actually, I think the original Fantasy is quite iconic, albeit crass and unapologetic, and deserves a four quite solidly. Midnight Fantasy probably doesnít, but itís getting it all the same. This is Ribena in perfume form, washing down a full-fat blueberry muffin. The kind that have sauce inside.
I think an adult can wear this, if care is taken not to over-apply. I couldnít every use this as a signature scent, but for kicks, Iíd pair it up with a floral dress and oversized sunglasses.

I LOVE Midnight Fantasy. Ive gone through 3 bottles and have 4 more. Its just great. Its like blueberries and vanilla. Its addictive, as you could tell what with all the bottles Ive gotten. Its just delicious. So many people love it. Alot of people love it even more then the original. Its just much easier to wear then the original being that it isnt as heavy. I think thats why so many people enjoy it much more then Fantasy. I actually prefer the original and Hidden over Midnight. Britneys 4 Fantasies have to be some of the best fun fruity sweet fragrances out there. They're all so likeable and very wearable. Its a great collection and I hope they make more and more. And the Midnight packaging and bottle are absolutely GORGEOUS!!! I have the bottles and boxes displayed all around my room. I LOVE IT!! : )

I really wanted to like this. I like the original Fantasy and this has plums in it, which I love, but I just can't stand it. I smells almost soapy to me, like shampoo or something. I was going to buy it on eBay without smelling it first but I decided to go to Kohl's today to test it out... I'm glad I did! The first half an hour I really hated it, now that it's had time to settle it's a little more subtle but it still seems there's too much going on. I sprayed it on my wrist and on a tester strip, it smells a lot better on the strip. I do smell hints of plum and black cherry, but I'm just not loving it. After testing it I don't see myself buying it.

This perfume is good for what it is. First of all, it's NOT mature, elegant, or sophisticated, but I don't think it's meant to be. However, it IS fun, flirty, and casual. I definitely smell the similarity to the original Fantasy, mostly in the sweet candy-like musk note, but the top notes are fruitier. Smells like candy-coated berries, predominantly blueberries. To me it smells kind of like shampoo on the drydown- kind of a generic sweet-clean smell. I like it enough to wear it occasionally. I think it will make a good casual date or school-day or weekend fragrance. Fun, youthful, but not especially remarkable. I won't repurchase, but I will enjoy the rest of my bottle :)

The top note is like huffing a packet of grape Kool-Aid. The drydown reminds me of black cherry cough drops. I did enjoy sniffing it (after the Kool-Aid phase had passed), but I'm not sure I'd want to smell like it myself.

This is my favorite sweet smelling perfume I've yet to find. To me, it smells sensual and sweet. It might be considered a nighttime perfume, but I prefer to wear this in the winter. It is very warm, consisting of a "blueberry pancakes" kind of smell. The dry-down smells like subtle vanilla, while at first spritz it is a strong berry scent. It's a good everyday fragrance, casual fragrance, or nighttime fragrance. The bottle is tacky but you are buying the perfume for the scent and not the packaging lol.. Overall this is a fantastic fragrance suited for teens and those in their 20's. Can be worn by anyone though!

Edit: After wearing it for two years, I have gotten sick of it. I don't like sweet fragrances, and this one is certainly sweet. It has a thick, synthetic note that I just can't stand. However, the perfume is sweet yet almost sensual - so it is a winner for anyone who loves sweet smells.
