Hidden Fantasy by Britney Spears
Believe it or not, there are actually some celebrity perfumes that do not smell overly-sweet, overly-flowery, generic, pungent and cheap! Generally speaking, I am not a fan of most celebrity fragrances. Most of them smell low quality to my nose. When I find one that I like, it's great because they can usually be found for very reasonable prices. Designer scents tend to garner a much higher price point than their celeb counterparts.

Apparenty, Hidden Fantasy has become hard to find now, which is a shame. Imagine my delight when I spotted a big bottlle of it on the clearance shelf at my local drugstore. The sign said all the discounted bottles were 19.99 but when I was cashed out, it was further reduced to 14.99, score!

It has to be said that I love these bottles. They really are very pretty with the swarovski crystals embellishing the round, colourful bottle. I'm quite taken with it.

As for the scent itself, most of us have had an Orange Creamsicle at some point in our lives, well this perfume is that smell, translated into a fragrance. Orange, vanilla, creamy, edible and yummy! They've done a beautiful job at not making it too sweet or cloying as it certainly could have crossed over into that territory with the candied fruit vibe that it has going on. It maintains an adult tone and manages not to smell juvenile in spite of the dessert inspired smell.

Midnight Fantasy used to be my favourite Britney scent but that one tends to wear you out over time. Hidden Fantasy is so much nicer and more wearable.

If you can find a bottle for a decent price, I'd grab it while you still can!

A Fantastic Fantasy
I was rather dreading trying this after my bad experience with Midnight Fantasy and the cherryade. However, I needn't have worried. To start with, as with all of the bottles in the "Fantasy" range, this one is very pretty and feels well constructed and not cheap.

I applied one spray to my arm as I was seriously worried about sweet overload due to the reported Neapolitan ice-cream note in Hidden Fantasy. However, this is a seriously beautiful fragrance. The orange and grapefruit stop this from ever being too sweet. Initially there is sour grapefruit but within a short space of time (approximately 15 minutes), this has calmed and melded with the orange and the sweet vanilla ice-cream. Hidden Fantasy is neither too sweet, nor overpowering. I can just about make out the lily, and the sandalwood grounds this fragrance particularly well. I am very impressed with this as I know that Rodrigo Flores-Roux was also the nose behind Hilary Duff's With Love, which I find very mediocre.

Hidden Fantasy is a beautiful young woman attending her first masked ball. She looks young, fresh and excited, then she dons the requisite mask replete with jewels and feathers. In the twinkle of an eye she becomes the mysterious one that all eyes will follow that evening.

Let them Eat Cake!
Hidden Fantasy is a High School Vixen who seduces all
the boys with her Feminine wiles and leaves them dry
after all that hot love making in a steamy backseat of
a car after when that is all finished she dumps you
and goes for her next prey, The opening starts off nice
and innocent with orange plump tangerine and virginal
Lemon Verbena, then under all that good girl persona
things start to get a bit naughty with the sweet and
decadent note of Napolitano steeps with it's libertine
sexiness dries off with a dark earthiness of clove.

Delicate airiness of lily opens the middle heart with it's spiciness accord powdery note of vanilla mingles
with lily giving it an cloying drydown strangely enough
i don't detect any wood notes but maybe it's drowned
out from the domineering note of amber give it a warm
seduction and ends with dry sandalwood giving it an
deep and esoteric nuance.

Orange-flavoured cake
As a fan of Britney's fragrances I was eager to try this. The first initial spray is definitely sweet and orangey, then it starts to smell slightly similar to the original Fantasy. However by the drydown, I would describe Hidden Fantasy as a gourmand, similar to the scent of a freshly baked, orange poppy seed cake.

I don't dislike the scent, but there was something about Hidden Fantasy that didn't blend well with my skin chemistry. I was really disappointed that I wouldn't be adding the red bottle to the pink and blue bottles I already have.

The scent is long-lasting with about the same amount of sillage as Fantasy. I'll be interested to smell this on other people because I'm sure this fragrance will become another best-seller from Britney's perfume line.
