As Curious was extremely successful worldwide, a limited edition was released in April 2006. The new fragrance, entitled In Control hit the stores in some countries, including the United States, Canada, Japan and Europe.
The perfume’s bottle is the same as the original Curious, except it is black rather than blue. In Control uses loquat fruit, midnight orchid, creme brulee, black vanilla bean, sugared sandalwood and musk. The fragrance is supposed to be “both sweet and sexy.” Although the fragrance was initially reported to be a limited edition for a limited time, the fragrance is still available for purchase.
On the name, Spears said: “As I get older, the names go with my age.” “It’s more demanding, it’s more sensual, it’s black, it’s about being in control. That’s cool and inspirational … girls need that.”
