Britney launches fragrant return

Star's Hidden Fantasy coincides with tour launch

At a stage show in front of 16,000 New Orleans fans, Britney Spears marked the next stage in her comeback – which coincides with the launch of her latest fragrance.

Hidden Fantasy, from £20, has been inspired by Britney's love for white florals, vanilla and 'luscious desserts', according to the perfumer Rodrigo Flores-Roux.

Starting with sweet orange and tangerine alongside grapefruit blossom and French flowering verbena, it opens into a heady heart of Stargazer lily and jasmine and finishes with a sparkling flourish of Mexican vanilla bean, amber and soft, woody notes.

The bottle is cherry red and decorated with luminous pink crystals.
