    I don’t think Radiance when I think Britney Spears. In fact, it always seems like the names of her frags are rather the opposite of her image at the time, save for Circus, which felt quite appropriate. ;) But who am I kidding? I’ll smell this. I do love all twenty minutes of Curious on my skin…

  2. pyramus says:

    “Radiance” is not a word I associate with Spears, either. Google “britney spears weave crate barrel” (without the quotes) and prepare to be horrified. It looks like she rubbed Nair and Krazy Glue into her scalp.

    Also, that bottle is what would happen if the bottles for Curious and Ungaro Apparition had gross dirty sex with each other and then regretted it.

    • Robin says:

      LOL…I don’t think I will! Ignorance is bliss.

    • thenoseknows says:

      was all over that “Apparition” bottle thing my friend! HIDEOUS!

  3. olenska says:

    I agree; that bottle makes my eyeballs hurt.

    • Robin says:

      It is definitely not my favorite bottle from BS. I liked the Believe bottle, but I think that one did not sell.

      • Owen says:

        I like the fantasy bottles (except the colour of midnight)
        and no, believe didn’t sell. one of my friends wears nothing else but Britney fragrances and she wouldn’t buy believe she said it was disgusting. I haven’t smelled believe so I don’t know.

  4. Suzanne941 says:

    I would be afraid to google Britney and most words, I think. Bless her heart; she seems to have really gone off the deep end since my niece adored her some years back.
    I like those sizes though! Wish there were more 30 ml bottles on offer (Chanel, I’m talking to you).
    What is going on with the way the full moon is aligned with her rather prominent derriere in that photo?

    • mals86 says:

      It’s not subtle, is it?

    • annemarie says:

      I guess you mean Chanel’s Exlusifs? Sigh. Yes, there will be a crazy party for days and days on NST if ever some – any – of them come out in 30mls. Still, there are some 35mls in some of the Chanel fragrances. And No 5 Eau Premiere has come out in 40mls – that is real progress. I often think that those 75 and 150 ml bottles of EP were marketed not at perfumistas but husbands, sons, fathers etc who need to buy presents – something classy and expensive, but safe, and which will last until the next Christmas or birthday. Spend 10 minutes at the Chanel counter on 24 December and you are bound to see these men of action!

  5. krokodilgena says:

    Well, we already know that these ~*celeb fragrances*~ have little to do with the celebrity and are just meant to be sold and make money…

    but “petals”?

    • RusticDove says:

      Yeah, ‘petals’ cracked me up.

  6. mals86 says:

    Britney really does not “do” Elegant well, does she? Bless her little redneck heart.

    I used to like her music, I admit. And The CEO, a sucker for perky buxom blondes, says of her, “She’s so… *talented.* And she can sing, too.” In all seriousness, I do really hope she matures and gets her personal life together – she’s got those sweet little boys to bring up, and appears not to have a clue how to do it. I worry about them.

  7. miss kitty v. says:

    Poor Britney. I think there’s way too much of this kind of thing, but I will admit that I didn’t absolutely hate her first couple of fragrances. I have a friend who wears them, and she makes it work. There’s something for everyone, I guess.

  8. dee says:

    Hmmm. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that that bottle is rad. It would look like a drag queen in my demure bottle collection, but drag queens are fun! They remind me to be fabulous ;)

    I’m going to find this plasticky treasure, and give it a sniff!

    • miss kitty v. says:

      I like how you think, lady! :)

  9. abirae says:

    I’m curious about this. Based on the notes I was expecting it to smell like Escada Moon Sparkle crossed with Britney’s signature cupcake accord, but the mention of tuberose caught my eye. Now I have my fingers crossed for a Moon Sparkle blueberry bubblegum cupcake shot through with a tuberose-wintergreen JAR Bolt of Lightning? It could happen.

  10. Warum says:

    Does it mean that cupcakes and berries are out and flowers are in?
    the bottle looks pretty awful to me.

  11. dominika says:

    That ad needs a unicorn…

  12. APassionateJourney says:

    Robin, so is it really coming out in August now??? I read September. I hope it is now coming in August. I can’t wait!

    • Robin says:

      Moodie Report says August…but we’ll see them when we see them, right?

  13. Joe says:

    Come on, will I be the first one to say OOPS! She did it… AGAIN?

    I honestly have no opinion on this though. How many has she had now, and who is winning the launch race, her or Paris?

    • Robin says:

      Britney has done more flankers, Paris more pillar fragrances. I thought Paris had 10 and this was BS’s 8th, but see below— perhaps I am missing one. (I don’t count Curious Heart because it was just a collector bottle)

      • APassionateJourney says:

        Oops, Robin! You’re right! She does only have 8when you don’t include Curious Heart. Paris Hilton only has 7 perfumes when you don’t include the colognes

  14. APassionateJourney says:

    ^This is Britney’s Tenth fragrance and Paris Hilton released her Tenth fragrance in June. They both started in 2004 along with Beyonce, who only released her real first this year

  15. The bottle cracks me up. I will try this when it gets to the discounters. No need to ever pay full price for a Britney perfume.

  16. RuthW says:

    I can’t buy that perfume because my 4 year old and 2 year old daughters would FIGHT TO THE DEATH over that bottle!

    • mals86 says:

      Buy TWO, of course… (Heh heh. I have two boys, 9 and 11, and they tend to like the same things. It’s just not so much of a problem to buy, say, two Nerf balls.)

  17. Amanda says:

    Sounds like she’s doing a U turn back to the Curious days with the white floral notes.

    The bottle is gaudy, but fun :)

  18. RusticDove says:

    The bottle is tackytastic!

    • Joe says:

      It really is. I had to Google to see a larger photo of it. Kind of funny, actually.

  19. I’ll be glad when I create a fragrance for her. My friend writes songs for her. ;-)

  20. jonr951 says:

    You’re friend writes songs for her?! That’s amazing! : )

    • Yes. She wrote Womanizer and she is in the process of possibly writing to 3 more tracks I was sent from a producer. I’d love to create a fragrance for Britney. :-)

  21. Savannah says:

    I love Britney and am so excited to add a new perfume to my collection! I have her Curious, Fantasy, and Believe perfumes. The only thing I hate is when she has to have 100 of the same variations. Like for example her Fantasy perfumes. I have the original, but I don’t care about the other hundred kinds. Like Midnight Fantasy, Hidden Fantasy, Circus Fantasy. J.lo did that too. She’s had like 100 kinds of glow. Only difference: Glow stinks in any flavor. Do enjoy her Live and Still tho. LOVE PERFUME!
    Actually I’m wearing Britney’s Believe right now. Such a fan u know.

  22. jonr951 says:

    Its available on everyone!!!! Yay!!! Im sooooo excited!!!! : )

  23. smellies says:

    brit likes the white flower variety..i must say this is difference fragrance for her it shows maturity and is quite different to other past juices. Bottle actually looks great filled with juice as it sparkles the different colours from the bottle. It is nice on the skin and last quite well suprisingly. Radiance is to show that no matter what you go through in life you can find within you a time to rafiate again..this was the inspiration for her fragrance..enjoy it is really nice

  24. jonr951 says:

    The Radiance commercial is on youtube! : )

  25. jonr951 says:

    I’ve heard it’s just tuberose. Boring. : (

  26. jonr951 says:

    Some people are saying it smells like Pure Bloom. Another is saying Viva La Juicy. I’d rather it smell like VIva but the world doesn’t need another one. : (

  27. jonr951 says:

    Does anyone know when and where this will be released? Because I sure don’t and it seems like it’s taking forever. LOL! Come on EA and Britney! : )

    • Robin says:

      Well, it’s been released but I don’t know where it is going to be sold…my Macy’s doesn’t carry BS at all now, so I’m assuming it will (eventually) be at mass market stores?

  28. jonr951 says:

    Yeah I think so too. All the Macys I’ve been to haven’t heard a thing about it. Oh well I guess. : )

  29. jonr951 says:

    I got to finally test Radiance at Kohls today and it was fine. I don’t love it at all but I don’t hate it either. I like it more than Curious, Midnight Fantasy and Circus Fantasy but it is definitely not my favorite from her. It reminded me of Pure Orchid and Pure Bloom which probably means you won’t care for it too much Robin. LOL! Oh well I guess. I will get me the rollerball but I definitely won’t be needing a full bottle of it. Well at least not a 3.4oz. It is Britney so I do have to have it no matter what. Anyone care for another Fantasy? I sure do! LOL! : )

    • Robin says:

      Seriously doubt I’ll even get to try it, so it’s all moot ;-)

  30. jonr951 says:

    Oh and I actually like the bottle. The texture of it was fun to hold. : )

    • lauren6616 says:

      i agree, its a lovely girly bottle.

  31. lauren6616 says:

    i LOVE this perfume, i first smelt it a few days ago and fell in love with it, i had to buy it a few days later, so girly and feminine, it smells flowery and very sweet just how i like my perfume, similar to kylie’s darling perfume.

  32. Owen says:

    I wouldn’t call that bottle radiance. more like bedazzled. she’s just thrown away another perfume idea :S

    maybe her next one could bedazzled and that’s covered in sequins or seomthing lol.

  33. Sonam says:

    I finally managed to find a tester of this at Ulta the other day, and was disappointed to find that it smelled really similar to Twilight Woods from Bath and Body Works…..not that I didn’t like it–it’s just that I was hoping it would be something unique that I didn’t already have, because I really love Radiance’s bottle, and would have loved to have it sitting on my dresser… ;)

  34. jonr951 says:

    I have NO idea if this is real. Haha! It is a bit “out there”. Hahaha! Either way, it’s Britney and I am LOVING the packaging this time around so I’m psyched. : )
