Someone from the Britney Spears camp must have heard me singing "... Baby One More Time" in the shower yesterday, because they just hit us
one more time with TWO new fragrances (and an accompanying ad) from the Princess of Pop, seemingly out of nowhere. (Thanks, Shower Song Gods. Next time, I'll give some One Direction a shot and see how that works out for me. #fivetimesthefun) Granted, the scents aren't ~totally~ new. They're more like two new twists on old favorite Fantasy, which you may remember has had a supporting role in MANY of Brit's music videos.

The video for Britney Spears' latest single, "Perfume," was just released and, wow, Britney must smell really good. She applies perfume ALL over her body. Is that how you get perfume to last? Spraying it on your stomach? I will take advice from a woman who has 12 scents to her name.
Obviously, with a song title like "Perfume" and bottles of Fantasy to sell, Britney and her team didn't miss the perfect opportunity for slow-mo shots of the pink sequined bottle as Britney applies enough for a few days. At those quantities, it's sure to rub off on the man you're having an affair with, Brit. His girlfriend will definitely smell your perfume.
Britney and her team weren't waiting for a perfectly named single to peddle perfume in her videos, though: Her various scents have made appearances for years! Let's take a look at some more cameos, shall we?
Back in May, we told you about Britney Spears' new fragrance, Fantasy Twist. Well actually, it's not a NEW fragrance, per say: the innovative new scent is actually Brit's Fantasy and Midnight Fantasy scents, combined in one super rad spherical bottle. Let's be honest, there are plenty of people with a 'signature scent,' but there are also plenty of people with a bunch of different perfumes that they rotate depending on the occasion, the season, or their mood. Britney has made a practical solution for fragrance flip-floppers, and we're 100% into it. We're also totally into the look for the perfume's ad campaign, in which Britney takes on the persona of Cleopatra, decked out in gold. The perfume, which was originally slated for release in October, has been moved forward to a September 1st release, to coincide with the premiere of X Factor, on which Britney is a judge.
The fragrance will be offered in three sizes, ranging from full-sized bottles to a tiny version of the two-scented set, the perfect size to sneak into your purse or keep stashed in a desk drawer or locker. We like the idea of being able to transition your perfume from day to night, or even to be able to combine the two (although we have no idea what that would smell like).

It's true! Britney Spears combined two of her best-selling fragrances (Fantasy and Midnight Fantasy) into ONE bottle for double the Brit Brit goodness. Wheewwww, we can barely hold in our excitement. *dabs sweat off upper lip* Fans can pull apart the pink and purple Fantasy Twist bottle for the option of choosing between the two signature Britney scents, or, if you're a TRUE stan, layer 'em both on just because you can. If you need a refresher (heh), the Fantasy fragrance is a light, white floral scent with hints of kiwi, jasmine and cupcakes, while Midnight Fantasy is a more seductive mix of black cherries, freesia and woody musks. Mmmmm, saucy.
