Tack Attack! Radiance EDP by Britney Spears & Free Sample
If you've been reading this blog a while you'll know that I'm partial to a bit of tackiness now and then. Especially when it comes to perfume bottles! I love Gucci Rush, but see that plain, red, plastic box it comes in? Snooze! And so I've never repurchased it.
I was pleasantly surprised by Britney's first perfume, Curious, as it's actually quite nice sweet and clean scent, if a little bubble-gummy. I actually bought Midnight Fantasy when Boots had it on offer last year for about a tenner purely for the bling-tastic bottle. I'm not hugely keen on the scent which is quite powdery and cloying, but it does garner compliments from men more so than more 'fashionable' fragrances.
And so when I saw the over-the-top bottle for Radiance I popped to Boots for a sniff, and you know what, it ain't bad! The marketing jazz describes it as: luscious berry and dewy petals unfold to reveal a radiant heart of luminous pure white flowers, lit from within by the glow of precious amber, woods and sexy musk. I think it actually smells a lot lighter and citrus and not as sexy as it's description and quite a lot like a grown-up Curious. As for the bottle, it does look cheaper in real life than it does in the advertising shots. The advert is gloriously cheesy and worth a look, just google or YT it. It's £28 for 50mls which is more than I'd fork out for it as the scent didn't last long on my wrists at all, but if it comes down like it's forerunners to £15 or under I'll snap it up.
