Friday Fragrance: Britney Spears Fantasy Twist

Are you familiar with Britney Spears Fantasy and Midnight Fantasy? If so, then Fantasy Twist might sound weirdly redundant, but it could also still be an interesting thing for you.

So wait, what? There is another Fantasy in the market? Fantasy Twist hit the US market last year, but it only arrived on Indonesian shelves last month. But by now we’re probably used to getting everything much later, right? :p

If I had either one or both of them, I would still want to get this one because the packaging is so appealing!  (Lucky me?) I haven’t tried these two, so when Hanzky brought this perfume and offered me and Dhany to try it, there was no way I could say no. Dhany has her own preferences when it comes to fragrances, so it landed on my desk safe and sound. I’ve been using Fantasy Twist for a full week, and (no surprises here) I love it.  I’m a sucker for Britney Spears’ fragrances.

First thing that stole my heart was the bottle.  I loved it at the first sight.  It’s unique, pretty, and I can see a gorgeous fuchsia and a beautiful midnight blue in one bottle.  I was totally sold.   The description in the press release mentioned that “BRITNEY SPEARS™ fantasy twist utilizes patent-pending friction lock technology to create a one-of-a-kind bottle design and debut a spherical combination of two individual but connecting bottles.”

It is a fusion of two best-selling perfumes with a beautiful, attractive look.  I think this is a very nice treat for those who love Britney Spears’ fragrances.  Since one sphere houses two different perfumes at once, it is also convenient to carry around for things like long holidays.

“With Britney Spears fantasy twist, I wanted to combine two of my favorite fragrances into a sophisticated bottle, giving my fans the power to choose the scent they desire at any given moment.” - Britney.

The pink-fuschia hemisphere is Fantasy, and the blue hemisphere is Midnight Fantasy. In the Celebrity Fragrances thread, some members shared their collection, and it turns out a few of them have Britney Spears’ Fantasy! It’s like a staple perfume for fruity-floral scent fans out there. Fantasy has a combination of succulent fruits and white florals that leave a very nice sweet scent.  It is followed by the mix of lush red lychee, golden quince, exotic kiwi, and jasmine petals in the middle.  The last notes are creamy musk and orris wood, giving a nice closure to the entire scent.  I was so surprised at first because the scent lasted for a very long time.  I sprayed it on my wrist and neck near my collar; after a whole active day at work, I could still smell the scent on my wrist and clothes when I got home.  Pretty awesome!  I can see why this is one of Britney Spears’ best-selling fragrances until now.

Its sibling, Midnight Fantasy is a combination of black cherries, framboise, luscious plum, orchid, freesia, and velvet iris. It leaves a warm feeling thanks to cashmere woods, white patchouli, and vanilla.  Personally, I think the fruity notes are dominating.  Midnight Fantasy is stronger than Fantasy in terms of the overall scent, whereas Fantasy is more sweet and subtle.  I think that’s why it has “Midnight” in its name, beacause, yes, I am so agree that this particular perfume is suitable for a night out.

Britney Spears Fantasy Twist is available in 100 ml (IDR 855,000), 50 ml (IDR 715,000), and 30 ml (IDR 565,000).
