Somehow in between all of her tabloid appearances, recording, dance practicing and little boy raising, Britney Spears found a way to come out with another new fragrance last month. (As a total aside, I can't imagine having people chasing at me with cameras every time I leave the house. Doesn't it sound horrid?)
Britney's fragrances have been very successful, and with this latest showing she was looking to showcase the power and beauty of women.
"I believe that all women can create their own world where they shine the brightest. It's all about having the power and confidence to be yourself. When I wear my new scent, Cosmic Radiance, I feel beautiful, empowered, and sexy."
The scent was created by Honorine Blanc and Harry Fremont (who also created Britney's first Radiance fragrance), this sent is "a tribute to bold, empowered, confident, elusive, fun, flirty women."
Top Notes: Mandarin, Lychee, Dewy Pear
Middle Notes: Night Blooming Jasmine, Golden Gardenia, Tuberose, Peony
Base Notes: Musk, Creamy Amber, Sandalwood, Liquid Vanilla
Holy pear Batman! This fragrance on me comes off as very pear. Initially it is very sweet with the Lychee, but as the dry down occurs the Jasmine and Tuberose come out more, balancing out the pear without making it too sweet. Finally, a few hours later I can pick up a bit more of the musk and amber underneath the pear (which retreats just a bit), which is both warm and fresh.
My friend Melissa tried the fragrance as well. Her immediate thoughts were that the fragrance was very sweet and playful. The pear note was very prominent on her as well. She mentioned using this fragrance as a fun backup fragrance for on the weekends.
This scent is definitely fun and flirty and would be best for those that are younger (perfect for high school or college, not so much those with grandkids), or for the weekends. This just isn't a scent that I can see working well in the boardroom.
If you aren't a fan of the Victoria Secret Pear Glacé I would stay away from this scent. I feel that the pear notes are very similar and prominent in both scents.
This fragrance is available exclusively at Kohl's.
