    Sorry to confess but the new Britney sounds good. I thought the first was well crafted too, I'm just not that big on magnolia.

    V, if they don't overdo the sweet fruit, it might be nice! Do find the black bottle vastly preferable to the old blue one.

    I am into the scents, not the label. Britney or not, it's a delicious fragrance, right up my alley. Hate to put more money in her pocket, but I love this fragrance. I also got an adorable hot pink bag with it, so I am pleased. :-)

    I was really interested in In Control fragrance when it came out and I wanted to try it. But I couldn't find it in any shop (I live in a little country in Europe). So I decided to take a risk and order it from Internet without smelling it first because I liked the reviews and descriptions about it. And I have to say that the risk was worthwhile – I absolutely love this perfume. It's not my favorite but it's still something I could use every day. I'm not a big fan of very sweet scents but I have to admit that all Britney's sweet perfumes are really pleasant. This one is the sexiest and suits me the best.

    I smelled it very quickly on a card, but I wasn't able to get a sample so I never tried it on skin.

    You are so kind! But it isn't even made anymore so I'm not likely to review it. And you know I did not adore Curious!

  27. Anonymous says:

    yeah me neither! its to synthetic! and it doesnt have a long shelf life at all. im still amazed at how well its done and is doing still! but i just adore in control. its completely different from the original and usually flankers cant compete with the original but this one out does curious. BIG TIME!

    It's rare when flankers are better than the original! Glad you love this one, & hope you stocked up on it!
