Predecessor Curious
Successor Curious: In Control

Fantasy is a women's fragrance and fragrance line by Britney Spears and Elizabeth Arden. Fantasy, the perfume, is the second perfume to be endorsed by Britney Spears. It was released in the US on September 15, 2005, following the successful previous perfume from Spears, "Curious", which made over $30 million in sales in the first three months of its launch. The Fantasy fragrance line has currently seventeen perfumes: Fantasy, Midnight Fantasy, Hidden Fantasy, Circus Fantasy, Fantasy Twist, Island Fantasy, Fantasy Anniversary Edition, Fantasy The Nice Remix, Fantasy The Naughty Remix, Fantasy Stage Edition, Rocker Femme Fantasy, Fantasy Renner Edition, Fantasy Intimate Edition, Maui Fantasy, In Bloom Fantasy, Sunset Fantasy and Fantasy Pride Edition.

Fantasy was created by Jim Krivda. Its notes are red lychee, golden quince, kiwi, cupcake accord, jasmine petals, white chocolate, orchid, musk, orris root and woods. The Fuchsia bottle once featured real Swarovski crystals embedded into the glass and the plastic collar until 2008. The believed reasoning behind the omission is because the glue of the crystal top would melt in higher temperatures, which many buyers realized a considerable time after purchase.[citation needed]

The television commercial for Fantasy Britney Spears was shot in Los Angeles and was directed by Bille Woodruff. It stars actor–model Nick Steele as the Hunter, with the background music being "Breathe on Me". The ad's tagline is "Everybody has one".

Type Women's fragrance
Released December 2006

Tagline Magic Begins at Midnight
Predecessor In Control
Successor Believe

A spin-off fragrance entitled Midnight Fantasy was released in December 2006, in some department stores, and January 2007 everywhere else. The bottle is a blue version of the original pink bottle.

Midnight Fantasy is classified as a sensual, sweet, fruity, feminine, flowery fragrance. Fragrance notes: black cherries, plum, orchid, freesia, musk and amber. Midnight Fantasy is recommended for romantic wear.[1]

The perfume initially sold well in December. However, events in Spears' personal life in January affected sales of the perfume, with analysts reporting that people were returning holiday perfume gift sets to stores in larger numbers than expected. Sanders observed that "the timing couldn't be worse" for such a downturn in sales of the perfume, because the craze for celebrity perfumes was already declining across all fragrances, having fallen 17% to USD140 million in 2006.[2] Sales have since reportedly started to rebound according to Macy's.

In April 2007, Spears set out a paparazzi contest with the aim of promoting the perfume. In an electronic mail message sent to her fans, she asked them to "share what happens to you when the clock strikes 12", by photographing their friends. Commentators observed that Spears' requirement that photographs not contain "nudity, obscenity, or violent depictions" would rule out several photographs taken of Spears herself that contained nudity.[3][4][5][6]

The perfume was developed by perfumer Rodrigo-Flores Roux, who also worked on With Love... Hilary Duff. The scent was "inspired by the singer's love of white florals, vanilla and luscious desserts", and the notes include sweet orange, tangerine, grapefruit blossom, verbena, jasmine, stargazer lily, sweet Napolitano cake, vanilla bean, jacaranda wood, fluid sandalwood and amber.
