I was not very impressed with Britney Spears first perfume ‘Fantasy’. When Midnight Fantasy hit shelves I didn’t even bother giving it a tester try. I figured it would have that same fruity scent that Fantasy had. A nice scent, but not a lasting one.
My cousin though recommended it, and usually she will only recommend something worth purchasing. When she told me it was a nice perfume, I decided to give Britney Spears fragrances a second chance.
Midnight Fantasy comes in a near replica of the original Fantasy perfume bottle; only Midnight Fantasy comes in a dark midnight blue color. The bottle itself is bulb shaped, with pretty rhinestones randomly placed on the glass. The top is a round cap, with a standard perfume pump underneath it. Overall the appearance of the bottle is attractive, and worthy of saving.
I didn’t purposely go out to seek Midnight Fantasy after my cousin recommended it. I sort of stumbled upon the tester bottle at my local Kohl’s. I figured it’s there, my cousin said it’s good, so I tested it.
I sprayed a bit of the perfume onto my wrist, waited for it to dry, and gave it a sniff.
((sniff, sniff, sniff….))
My cousin was right, it was indeed a very nice fragrance. It reminded me a lot of blueberries, but I truly think my mind told me that Midnight Fantasy should smell like blueberries only because the bottle looks like one. When I scratched off the blueberry idea, I smelled mostly berries like raspberry and cherry.
The scent was nice, I will give it that, but it definitely is not very sophisticated. Midnight Fantasy is more of a teen/child scent. It’s just too fruity and playful for everyday wear. Kids would love it. Me; 25 years old, I liked it. But I knew after testing it, that Midnight Fantasy was not for me.
How Long Does It Last?
This has been on ongoing issue when it comes to fragrances endorsed using Brit. The fragrances never ever last long. To me, Midnight Fantasy is more like body spray.
It smells nice for 10 minutes, and then is gone completely. Once the perfume is fully dry, so is the scent. It fades into perfume nowhere-ville. Sigh, so many perfumes end up there…
Pricing and Availability:
Midnight Fantasy can be found nearly everywhere. I have seen it in department stores like Macy’s, and teenie bop shops like Claire’s and Icing. You can also find it online. The price varies anywhere from $30.00 to $55.00.
In my opinion Midnight Fantasy is too expensive to consider purchasing; especially seeing how the scent is not long lasting at all. I compare it to a cheap body spray. Not worth what they ask for it.
