Anna Sui Flight of Fancy


So Sephora is carrying the Anna Sui line again! And this time, the perfume bottles aren’t shaped like creepy doll heads! This could be a positive or a negative, depending on your feelings about creepy doll heads. I am anti-creepy doll head, personally. They are terrifying.


I find Anna Sui’s goth cat lady aesthetic delightful; unfortunately, her new perfumes are much less interesting.

Flight of Fancy is a discernibly lychee fragrance. It is sheer and very smooth, with none of the sharpness too often found in less successful fruity scents. There is really very little in the way of a dry down. Flight of Fancy is a perfectly nice fruity fragrance, although it does strike me as more than a little Bath & Body Works. The packaging looks cheap (the font is freaking Papyrus), but Anna Sui does offer an $18 rollerball, which is always welcome. I don’t predict much success for Flight of Fancy, but I will say that it is a pleasant and reasonably-priced fragrance. Warning: two different reviewers mention on the Sephora website that their sample of Flight of Fancy was very different from the full bottle. I am also testing from a sample.
