Believe is such an amazingly unique fragrance.
It is one of those scents that grow on you, the more you wear it the more you love it.
When I first tried Believe I hated it. Even when I bought it, it wasn't a favourite. I thought it smelt far too masculine, spicy and strong, with the patchouli giving me some serious headaches.
Almost a year on, Believe has surpassed the other Britney fragrances in my collection and has become one of my favourite choices for Spring and Summer.
Believe is more spicy than it is sweet. If you want the sugary goodness from Fantasy, the sweet syrupy fruits in Midnight Fantasy or the light, girlish florals from Curious, then this isn't for you.
Britney has taken a more mature approach towards this scent. My nose is met with a delightful blend of tropical fruits in the opening which is neither synthetic, overly sweet nor nauseatingly fruity.
The drydown is divine with an interesting blend of lime blossom, honeysuckle, amber and patchouli, which gives this scent raw sex-appeal.
In some ways Believe smells dirty, in a sexual kind of a way. It's spicy, sensual, woodsy and intriguing. I find that I receive compliments mostly from men when I wear this scent.
People who found her other fragrances too sweet, too childish or too mainstream, should really give Believe a try.
