Review: Britney Spears Newest Fragrance Private Show
Hit Me Baby One More Time
When I received news of the June launch of pop icon Britney Spears’ newest fragrance, Private Show BRITNEY SPEARS™ my first reaction, no matter how cliche, was to quote one of her hits songs: “hit me baby, one more time.” The song is relevant, because Britney Spears has had her ups ad downs personally, but she has had staying power with her fans but in music, and with a long list of fragrances:

Britney Spears” Private Show, celebrates the star’s “passion for dancing”, and shares its name with a track on her upcoming album. The fragrance itself is an oriental musk, inspired also by Britney’s love of dulce de leche, white florals and iced coffee.
The Britney Spears fragrance profile has always been a gourmand one. But she is grown up now, and her audiences are more mature as well. Private Show is a fruity floral with gourmand notes, but it’s not as “ooey gooey” as her earliest efforts.
Private Show begins with top notes of whipped crème coffee, clementine and nectarine. The heart is dulce de leche, orange flower and jasmine sambac. But the bottom notes balance the sweetness with sensual notes that come through: luminous amber and sensual musk.
One thing that I always love about Britney Spears fragrances are the bottles, always feminine, always fun. The fragrances are not terribly expensive, but it is clear that effort and expense is expended to make the fragrance experience special for those who aren’t interested in spending $$$ for niche fragrances.
For fans of Britney Spears and this is another reason to run to Kohls and snap up Private Show. The fragrance is available beginning July 25th at Kohl’s or Kohls.com for $52.00.
