Review | Viva La Juicy


I purchased Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture as part of a gift set in the sales. I have wanted it for a really long time and did not even hesitate when I bought it. Personally Juicy Couture is not a brand I would ever go to for clothes or accessories, but for some reason I am really drawn to their perfumes.

I adore the bottle. It is so pretty and I will probably end up keeping it when it runs out. Some people may find it a bit much with the big pink bow but I really like it and the 'couture' hanging bit (technical term). Obviously describing a scent is difficult, but this is gorgeous. It is sweet, playful and feminine. I think its quite a young scent but it is quite light so it is easy to wear. Viva La Juicy has top notes of wild berries and mandarin, with honeysuckle, gardenia and jasmine. The base notes are caramel, vanilla, sandalwood and praline. This gives the perfume a lovely fruity and floral fragrance that is sweet but with warmth. I really have fallen in love with this perfume and am reaching for it a lot, however I am really disappointed by the lasting power. It is not very strong and I feel like I need to apply more than usual to make it noticeable on me and after a couple of hours I can't smell it on my skin anymore, a real shame as it is so lovely and pricey!
Juicy Couture please make the formula better!

Have you smelt Viva La Juicy and fallen for it like me?

  5. Such a coincidence, was literally just in town and smelt this - it smells lovely! So so frustrating when perfumes don't have lasting power xx

  6. I have tried a few other Juicy perfumes (The original Juicy Couture, La Fleur, the peace, love one...) and I don't like any of those...but Viva La Juicy sounds right up my alley and of course it's one I never run across a sample of! Such a cute bottle.
