VIP Private Show from Britney Spears {THE FRAGRANCE CHRONICLES}

Something about my relationship with perfumes, that I am always a little shamefaced to admit, is that I full on adore celebrity fragrances. There, I said it! And VIP Private Show is no exception.

I know there is nothing really to be ashamed of. However I feel like people always associate celebrity fragrances with “immature” scents. But honestly, give me a Rihanna, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift or, especially, a Britney Spears scent and I am in fragrance heaven.

This must be at least my 5th or 6th Ms Spears fragrance and they just keep getting better! (Okay, no. Nothing will beat the original Fantasy but that is the exception to the rule). This latest fragrance, named Private Show, shares a name with a song on one of her albums and is definitely one of the best Britney Spears scents so far. Can you believe she has now released 22 fragrances to her name!

A similarity across all of her fragrances would be their sweetness. They are all sweet, but VIP Private Show could not be described as light. It is a very obvious scent with top notes of white floral and warm, spicy notes. Another top note, which I SO appreciate, is the coffee addition! Once you know what the scent is, you can pinpoint it immediately. It is more of an “iced coffee” smell which is why you may not detect the exact smell immediately.

It is a sweet, playful fragrance with fruity finishes of red apples, blood oranges and mango nectar. Like I said above, I am not so great when it comes to pinpointing notes in fragrances but this is for the playful and fun women, who still wants a bit of sweetness with their elegance.

I am really not the greatest when it comes to recognising all the flavours but Googling VIP Private Show revealed the extra added notes are nectarine, clementines and whipped cream. The warm dry down scent consists of musk and luminous amber.

The lasting longevity of Private Show is roughly 4 to 5 hours so this is the kind of fragrance that you will need to pop into your handbag for a touch up during a work day or a long event. The bottle itself is exquisite but, again, still very fun. The pastel pink liquid and gold be-speckled lid adds some playfulness, while the glass-cut bottle brings in vintage glamour.
