Summer is nearly upon us and you may searching for a bright, tropical and perhaps fruity fragrance? I know that celebrity scent offerings may not be your first port of call, and you may long have outgrown Britney Spears' musical talents but promise me you'll try, Britney Spears Maui Fantasy Eau de Toilette?
Yes, you do have to look past the slightly garish and reminiscent of a Hawaiian shirt bottle to really enjoy the sweet fragrance within, but I'm sure once you test this scent for yourself this won't be an issue. The concept behind the design I am told is to reflect the crisp blue waters of Maui, the hibiscus flower is also a nod to the island of Hawaii. Okay so maybe it is a bottle I won't proudly display, but it is not the worst I have seen, and as I said it truly is what is on the inside that counts with this fragrance - and man is it a wondrous beach ready scent.
When I first dabbed on Britney Spears Maui Fantasy Eau de Toilette I was instantly transported back to my pre-teens; a time when I was beyond obsessed with Jennifer Lopez and one scent in-particular - J-Lo Miami Glow. The similarity - well at least in my mind, it has been a while - is uncanny. Both are warm, creamy and as you'd expect (and hope) tropical fragrances; not overly fruity. nor coconut based yet perfect for a day in the sun. Think hints of soft coconut coupled with passion-fruit, gentle summer floral notes (hibiscus petals and tiare flower), a little vanilla, completed with warm sand and blonde wood. It is clean, easy to wear, youthful and utterly addictive. It may not be the most refined fragrance within your collection but it will be one that you will want to wear time and time again.
I've said it before and I'll say it again Britney Spears is queen of the celebrity fragrance world.
