Fruity flavours' fantasy
"Icy Fantasy" is a fragrance created by Sophie Labbé, a very talented and qualified perfumer who gave us fragrances like "Jasmin Noir" (Bvlgari), "Promesse" and "Liberté" (Cacharel) or "Bellissima" (Blumarine). Sophie Labbé often works for Fiorucci which belongs to the "Perfume Holding", a company created in 2010 when Morris Profumi and Selective Beauty merged into one. Their product portfolio includes the newly established brand Atkinsons (which is not as purely British as the advertising campaign suggests) plus many Italian names, among them Ferrari, Benetton, La Perla, Sergio Tacchini, Iceberg, Ducati and Fiorucci, of course. Fiorucci always tries to come across extremely playful and "Icy Fantasy" is a brilliant example of this. It's a celebration of powerful fruity aromachemicals in one bottle and overloaded with sweet but lovable flavours (strawberry, apple, rasberry, peach). "Icy Fantasy" is not suitable for women over 20, which is why my daughter keeps it locked away from me. I'd call it a very strong fruity-floral, and strictly "younger than springtime" territory. This said, it's one of those rare fruity-florals which are unexpectedly nice, which is probably due to the work of an experienced perfumer like Sophie Labbé.
