A self-proclaimed ‘scent girlie’ has tested out early 2000s perfumes made by iconic stars like Paris Hilton and Britney Spears — and revealing which one is the best and the worst.  

Anastazia Dupee, 26, is a content creator based in Los Angeles with a following of more than 1.2 million on TikTok, where she shares her everyday life with viewers as well as all of her beauty, fashion and lifestyle tips.

Dupee, who is the host of the podcast Confessions By Anastazia, decided to honor the ‘perfume queens’ of the early 2000s by giving her official rundown and rating, beginning with Kim K. 

‘I’m a scent girlie, I love the 2000s, Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton, Rihanna, Britney Spears, they were all coming out with their own perfume,’ she explained this week.

‘I think these four queens were major perfume queens, so let’s start with Kim.’

Dupee began by opening up a bottle of Kardashian’s ‘True Reflection’ perfume, which had notes of ‘Italian bergamot, luscious plum and peach.’

‘Apparently, Kim still uses this perfume to this day,’ Dupee claimed, showing off the black prism-shaped bottle and spraying it on her wrists. ‘I’m excited to try this out.’

‘It smells like licorice candy,’ she said after taking a sniff. ‘That is the best I can describe it, like licorice candy.’

Next up was Paris Hilton’s, which was named after herself and also had an ‘iconic’ photo of the star on the box, according to Dupee.

‘She has like, 40 perfumes, and I got the one with the most reviews,’ she explained, noting that she did prefer Kardashian’s bottle over Hilton’s.

Hilton’s perfume is described as ‘cool and radiant’ on her website, with the top presenting a ‘halo with delicious notes of frozen apple and juicy peach nectar wrapped with sparkling muguet and a splash of wet ozone.’

In addition, it also has floral note and at its base ‘creamy sandalwood is infused with oakmoss and ylang-ylang blossoms.’

‘Powdery, floral, very romantic,’ the content creator noted after spraying the scent on her body. ‘I feel like I would wear this on a date night.’ 

She described the fragrance as a ‘teenager perfume’ that was ‘soft’ and ‘sweet.’

Dupee then moved on to Reb’l Fleur by Rihanna, which is made up of ‘subtle floral notes from hibiscus, violet & tuberose, with a touch of coconut water, over its gentle and soft base’ per the official description. 

‘I feel like every teenage girl in the 2000s wanted to own this perfume,’ she said about the fragrance as she showed off the pink-and-gold packaging complete with a photo of the A-lister herself on the box.

‘Definitely the biggest bottle out of all of them,’ the vlogger noted. ‘By the way, none of these were expensive.’

As she took it out of the packaging, Dupee noted that the bottle of Rihanna’s perfume was ‘gorgeous,’ and drew similarities to how Kardashian’s looked.

‘This is very sexy and very musky,’ she said. ‘One of The Cheetah Girls would definitely wear this.’

And, finally, Dupee said that she saved Fantasy by Britney Spears for last, which comes in an adorable, hot pink bottle adorned with rhinestones.

‘This is the first time I’m smelling this,’ the 26-year-old said, explaining that the bottle had a ‘similar vibe’ to Hilton’s.

Spritzing it on her skin, Dupee said: ‘This is very sweet, very fruity. Giving middle school prom.’

The top notes in Spears’ fragrance are ‘kiwi, red lychee and quince,’ while the middle notes include ‘white chocolate, cupcake, orchid and jasmine’ with a base of ‘musk, orris root and woodsy notes.’

‘My favorite one, and I think I’d wear this to the gym, is the Paris Hilton one,’ she admitted. ‘It’s very easy, and it smells really good.’

Coming at number two was Rihanna’s perfume.
