I love all kinds of scents, from gourmands to fruity florals to strong hard-to-peg scents( Iike the sadly discontinued Tom Ford Black Orchid Voile de Fleur). My skin has a way of taking some fragrances with certain notes (jasmine, musks and some gourmands) into Johnson’s baby powder territory. Which I dislike (looking at you Chanel #5). And there are others that do surprisingly well that on paper(literally) would tell me to run the other way... Like Britney Spears Hidden Fantasy.
On first spray , Hidden Fantasy comes off like an orange cream soda/orange poppy seed cake with a touch of spice. As my skin continued to heat it up,the orange note stayed steady and the “imitation” vanilla note gave way to the faint spicy note from earlier. Which somehow makes the orange note stronger/crisp without either being/becoming cloying.
I passed over the original Fantasy and the much liked Midnight Fantasy as they did not do well on my skin (both going flat quickly with a strange, harsh twinge of vanilla). Hidden Fantasy on the other hand held up very well- especially the citrus note. I’m looking forward to layering this with Commodity Bergamot (my favorite stand alone/layering) perfume or even their Mimosa or Gold fragrances.

Love this perfume. It actually lasts quite awhile on me-most perfumes don't. Orange/tangerine is the top note and the dry down is a vanilla sandalwood scent. It has a warm, deep smell that I think is more appropriate for night time and winter time wear (I do wear it a lot during the summer if I am going somewhere at night) I read somewhere that orange/tangerines were one of the most appealing scents to men-in my experience this has been accurate with this perfume. Most men I am around comment that this perfume smells really good and they ask what it is.

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.

I really dont care how simplistic this is, its utterly delightful!! A lovely floriental, slightly citrusy, but in a sweeter manner, this perfume really evokes my senses! For the record I'm 34, have many HE perfumes, but this one ranks right up there with them!! This starts out as an orange scent, but ladies you need to wear this one, do not make the mistake of smelling it from the bottle!! That orange is very gentle, not sharp nor bitter, but definitely not candied either. It has a delightful ambery warmth to it that is beautifully genteel and the amber envelopes the entire scent, it really elevates this perfume to above teenage sugar sweet type standards. The jasmine in the heart is just beautiful, sensuous and caressing, and the sandalwood in the base with the vanilla is really beautiful. This has to be my favourite of all the Fantasy perfumes and prob the best of BS entire line. This one is a keeper, I will continue to buy this for as long as I can.

I would only buy this if I find it cheap at Marshalls becuse I sampled it at Kohl's and it is not all that. Fantasy and Midnight are better.This smells like orange and then it doesn't last. I would never pay 45 or 55 for this perfume! Won't be long before Marshalls gets this in store. They had gotten the Jennifer Lopez Live Platinum quick because I sampled that one at Kohls and a week later it was on the shelves at Marshalls. I don't even buy perfume anywhere but Tj maxx and Marshalls because why pay full price when you can just wait it out and get it there cheaper! I seen Vera Wang Princess there and Armani code,Gwen Stefani L,Juicy Couture,All of Ralph Lauren perfumes,Usher,Sean John, SJP,Britney Spears,Jlo,Baby Phat,Liz Claiborne,Salvatore Ferragamo Incanto dreams and charms,Thierry Mugler Eau de star and a few others by T.M.,Umm,Guess,Paris Hilton,Hilary Duff,pretty much all the perfumes that are popular so why shop Macy's? I bet pretty soon they will have Inspire by Christina Aguilera and Jessica Simpson Fancy soon and I am waiting to buy them,cheap! UPDATE 4/1/09: And I was so right I just got Inspire by Christina Aguilera for 39.99 (gift set) at Marshalls the other day and I seen Fancy by Jessica Simpson for 19.99 for the 1oz bottle so next I predict Hidden Fantasy and Halle by Halle Berry and Pretty by Elizabeth Arden at Marshalls next (my sister already seen the pretty lotion at Marshalls 2 weeks ago).So those are my Discount store perfume predictions!

I must say...this fragance is cleverly marketed and the bottle is beautiful to look at....and its the scent goes on so pretty as well! Its sweet scent. Sort like a vanilla, fruit, cakey scent...and since I got it a week before Christmas it will always remind me of Christmas...the smell of cake baking in the house. I wouldnt say its my favorite out of the Britney Spears line...but it would definetly rank as one I wouldnt forget. : )

Been really psyched to try this since Fantasy is pretty much my favorite perfume ever. I love really sweet/gourmand like scents like Fantasy, JS Fancy, etc. Got this yesterday and have been testing it out. I've decided I love it! It's quite sweet initially. At the very beginning I get an orange/grapefruit citrus note with sweet sugary vanilla and an almost spicy woodsy background. I searched on the net and a couple of places mention it having mexican vanilla bean and clove. That makes sense and seems like what I am getting ever so slightly in it, but in a very good way. The drydown is great! A creamy warm vanilla amber wood with just a hint of sweetness. So overall I would consider this citrus/gourmand/woodsy, if that could be a category. I suppose it's the vanilla bean and Napolitano cake notes making it so good and sweet :) If you love Fantasy, I really do consider this a more grown up mature version of it. Fantasy is sweet, but this is sweet with an edge to it. Another hit! Highly recommend. And the bottle is gorgeous! It's the same as Fantasy but it is clear deep red glass with very light pink crystals.
