I decided to try Fantasy because I liked Curious a lot and thought it was a great casual perfume. The Magnolia reminded me of home. Fantasy however, has quickly become one of my favorite perfumes of all time. I have gotten compliments in a variety of settings, and I see no reason why a professional woman could not wear it. It adds a hint of ultra feminine sexiness to any outfit and any ocassion, as it's very versatile. The perfume has staying power, but it's not strong. Its scent is subtle unless you spray it all over yourself and nearly bathe in it. But no perfume smells good when you do that! I don't find that this smells little girlish or trashy. My husband even loves the smell and thinks it's "yummy" and he is not normally a fan of sweet-smelling perfumes. I'm a perfume addict and have a penchant for the particularly expensive smelling kinds and this bottle sits between Armani, Dior, Coco Chanel and Versace on my bathroom counter. Fantasy doesn't smell cheap or expensive, it's unique and for the price, affordably unique. The smell is sweet, fruity, and exotic all at once. It's playful yet serious and is unmistakeably feminine. I can definitely say this perfume is my "fantasy" perfume. I'm not even a Britney fan, but she did a fabulous job with this perfume. (I petition that she quit singing, and get into the cosmetics industry!) I also love the Fantasy body lotion... the smell doesn't fade to something weird like some lotions based off perfumes that I have. The lotion is great for a casual date or even when you're simply at home and want to feel a little luxurious.
