    Much as I can't stand their namesake, Britney's scents are well done. Curious is not my cup of tea (too floral), but Fantasy and In Control are fun and easy to wear. If anyone asks me what I'm wearing, I just say “Fantasy.” And, I've gotten lots of compliments on it!

    these should be renamed to match her life more closely – Peculiar, Nightmare and Out of Control

    They are well-done, much more so than I expected they would be.

    Congratulations to Laurice and Bond for the award for Chinatown crystallized. It was a masterpiece. Wish I had bought it.
