Juicy Couture: Viva La Juicy


I'll start by saying, I was sold by the packaging for this product.  The cute pink bow, the golden detailing on the bottle...  and I had seen in photos that it came adorned with a Juicy Couture charm on the front - I didn't realise that was just on the larger sizes (50ml/100ml) of this perfume, oops!  I bought the 30ml sized bottle from Cheap Smells.

But appearance aside, I absolutely loved this scent!  It's a very recognisable scent when you're wearing it, and can easily become your 'signature smell'.  It contains notes of wild berries, mandarins, honeysuckle, gardenia and jasmine.  I certainly couldn't smell Jasmine in there - which is a good thing for me because along with Lavender, it is one of the scents that can make me prone to headaches.  The fragrance also contains notes of amber, caramel, vanilla, sandalwood and praline - all of which I can definitely smell & give the sweet touch to this fragrance, especially the caramel/vanilla combo!  It's a very youthful-smelling perfume, fruity & sweet.  I find that I only need to apply this once in the morning and I can smell it right throughout the day.

Since buying this, Viva La Juicy is going to be one of those perfumes that I just have to replenish when I see it nearing on empty.  I bought this on a whim & I will be buying it in a larger size when this bottle runs out!

  2. I was enticed by the packaging and the bottle in the shop but I really hated the scent. It was far too sweet for me, such a shame as it really is a pretty bottle.

    1. It is very sweet! See, I've seen reviews from people that say the fragrance doesn't last very long - but I found it quite the opposite! So I can understand, if the fragrance stays with you all day, a very sweet smell might not be everyone's ideal perfume xx

    2. Yeah, my fiance didn't like it either so probably best I didn't like it! I'm wearing Marc Jacobs 'Daisy' at the moment and I love it. It's almost gone though. Luckily I got 'Dot' for Christmas so I should be okay! :) xo
