Our Favorite Britney Spears Fragrances, Ranked!
If you grew up in the '00s, we're sure you'll agree that owning a Britney Spears fragrance was a rite of passage second only to getting your learners permit. So it's no surprise that a little reminiscing among our beauty editors quickly turned into a passionate debate about our favorite perfumes by the Princess of Pop. Here, her greatest hits as determined by our editors.
Fantasy The Naughty Remix
"While Naughty’s white chocolate top notes pack some sweetness, the musky base gives it a sultrier vibe, which I love. Out of all of Britney Spears’s scents, this is the one I’d wear for a candlelit date. A little goes a long way—no need to re-apply throughout the night." —Sophie Wirt, Beauty Intern
"If Britney Spears’s Maui Fantasy fragrance was one of her music videos, it would be “Don’t Let Me Be The Last To Know.” It immediately evokes images of frolicking under the sun in the sand, and transports you to paradise. The fragrance has grapefruit and passion fruit top notes, and a vanilla and coconut base. To sum it up: A few spritzes instantly deliver tropical island vibes." —Erin Lukas, Beauty Writer
“This Circus Fantasy scent debuted in 2009, coinciding with her Circus album. Like the record, the scent is upbeat but slightly sassy: Sweet notes of raspberry and apricot give way to musky vanilla once the juice dries down." —Dianna Mazzone, Assistant Beauty Editor
"The citrus notes in Island Fantasy remind me of the most indulgent tropical cocktail (like one with fruits and flowers, and an umbrella sticking out of the top), but the scent still holds floral elements of the original Fantasy fragrance. Plus, the ombre color scheme of the bottle looks gorgeous sitting on my vanity." —Marianne Mychaskiw, Associate Beauty Editor
Fantasy The Nice Remix
"I really enjoy this softer take on the original Fantasy. The creamy vanilla base mixed with notes of jasmine petals and kiwi create the perfect sweet scent that’s not overpowering." —Amanda Etkind, Beauty Intern
