Britney wins Fragrance of the Year at Hollywood Beauty Awards

Britney collected the Fragrance of the Year award for her Fantasy in Bloom perfume at the Hollywood Beauty Awards.

Revlon’s EVP of Global Fragrances, Ron Rolleston, presented Spears with the award.

Britney said: “I adore Ron. He’s like my grandfather. I just friggin’ love him. I want to thank Ron and the team at Revlon. It’s always great working with you to bring our ideas, like Fantasy in Bloom, and all our fragrances to life. When I was getting ready this evening, my sons were like, ‘Mom, are you going to the Oscars?’ I said, ‘Well, it’s kind of like the Oscars, and I won the biggest award there.’ They were jumping up and down, and I felt really proud—but they were just ready to get my ass out of the house!

“Anyways, I also want to thank the Hollywood Beauty Awards for this amazing honour; thank you so much and I am so excited to be working with you on all the new projects. HBA, shall I tell my sons we have a date for this time next year?”

Britney’s fragrances have been raking in hundreds of millions of dollars over the last 14 years, despite her dwindling presence in the top 10.
