Britney Spears ‘Festive Fantasy’ Perfume Review
Before I get started, I want to give you a little background story… As a podcast addict, I feel like I knew about the #FreeBritney movement pretty early on, I listened to Britney’s Gram, I watched it get bigger and bigger and I have been emotionally invested in the campaign for probably around 18 months now. I’ve share some content and resources and followed the court cases with my fingers crossed. I even comment on Britney’s Instagram photos and tell her ‘We love you Brit! We are rooting for you!!!’ along with all the other millions of fans around the world. Yes, I’m a loser, but what can I say, except ‘#FREEBRITNEY’. Hell, I even signed a petition.
Imagine my excitement when Britney Spear’s new perfume ‘Festive Fantasy’ dropped through my letterbox a few weeks ago! I was CONVINCED Britney had read my tweets and Instagram comments about her and wanted to say ‘Thanks for your support!’. I can almost imagine her wrapping up the ox for me in Thousand Oaks (yes, I know where she lives) and spritzing the tissue with perfume for me. But, in reality, I probably just got lucky and found myself on a PR list, but whatever, I’m rolling with it, Britney wants me to feel festive and sexy this season and I’m here for it! So Britney, thanks for the gift!
OK! So now you know how heavily invested I am in Britney’s conservatorship and what a loser I am to consider her an actual friend, rather than the most world famous, iconic superstar popstar of our time, I’ll crack on with the review!
If you are a regular reader of my blog, you might know that I love niche and luxury fragrance brands, I love Penhaligon’s, Miller Harris, Jo Malone, Amouroud, Tom Ford, Clean Reserve and my absolute favourite… Roja Parfums! I tend to go for fairly unisex fragrances and I love rich roses, tuberose, oud, amber, incense, fig and mossy, woodsy, vetiver notes… in short, a million miles away from every Britney Spears fragrance. But here’s the thing… I didn’t hate it!
Britney Spears ‘Festive Fantasy’ is sweet, fun, flirty, sexy and it’s kind of delicious! It opens up with a burst of dark and juicy red fruits, which mingle with the vanilla at the base. There’s florals at the heart of the fragrance and creamy woods and sweet musk at the base. It’s fun, addictive and actually really lovely! The sweetness is playful rather than sicky, the fruits are delicious and the use of plum and cherries is unexpected and there is a lovely creaminess to the woods and musk at the base. It’s fun!
I had no idea of the price when I sprayed it, but I guessed around the £50 mark as it’s fun, flirty and surprisingly high quality. It smelt like a £50 perfume, maybe even a £60 perfume… it’s good, it’s not for me, but it’s good! The bottle is cute, the perfume is nice quality, the longevity is great, the fragrance is a flirty fruity floral with a twist and it doesn’t have an alcoholic top note (my personal pet peeve!) I’m not just saying this, but I was truly shocked when I logged into the Boot’s website and saw this perfume was £17.50! LIKE SHOCKED! I’m not going to pretend this perfume is my style, it’s not, but it’s really fun, pretty, sexy and well blended with unexpected but delicious ingredients and for the price… it can’t be beaten! Well done Britney, well done! If you love fruity floral perfumes and you are wanting something fun for the festive season, this truly is a steal at £17.50 – it’s usual RRP is £35 so if you want it, get it soon!
Britney Spears ‘Festive Fantasy’ is out now from Boots.com and costs £35 (although it’s currently half price!!!) for a 100ml bottle and £21.50 for a 30ml bottle. This post contains affiliate links and press samples.
