Hey Posse. Jessica Simpson is one of my faves. I liked her music, went crazy for her as Daisy Duke and have had a long love affair with her Fancy Nights perfume. Rifling through the samples and decants for New Idea 2023 threw up a 5ml from now defunct My Perfume Samples and I’ve been wearing it since yesterday. I thought, as it’s still available fairly cheaply on the discounters, you all might like to join me for a ride. Sometimes it’s fun to jump off the niche AF hype-wagon and get a little mainstream.
I Fancy You by Jessica Simpson
Parfumo gives these featured accords:
Top: Apple, Pear. Bergamot
Heart: Tuberose, Hyacinth, Lily of the valley
Base: Amber, Sandalwood, Musk
Aquatic fruits open I Fancy You. They are ripe, juicy and floating in coldest water. Do I smell apple, pear and bergamot? Not really, but a fruity melange and some cucumber and melon. It’s like one of those large water dispensers in a bar with some fruit in there to make a refreshing, slightly more interesting drink than plain water. Softly sweet and very reminiscent of those aquatic peony or cherry blossom body sprays. Pretty.
The heart is more water and the remains of the cool fruits over a bouquet of amorphous florals with a green undertone. I Fancy You is mainstream, wearable and I can imagine it being a very easy spritz and go signature fragrance. If you remember the original Juicy Couture eponymous scent, or even Paris Hilton’s Siren, um maybe I’m confusing them with Britney’s Curious, then you will know the style. They aren’t the same but have a similar summer cooling, signing loud in the car, hanging with your pals and dancing around vibe. They smell like a summer, happy love/friend/family montage in a rom/com.
Basically this is where I Fancy You stays. Those base notes don’t really show up, except maybe some white musks.
Not terrible. Very affordable and has moderate projection but excellent longevity. Anyone could wear it and to almost anywhere that fun is happening, or maybe you’re about to make it happen.
Always ready to smell a celebuscent, back in 2019 I sniffed One Direction Our Moment.
Is anyone else an I Fancy You fan?
