Why Do People Buy and Wear Those Things? Viva La Juicy Juicy Couture Perfume.

Remember the Juicy Couture jogging suits that weren’t just for jogging? The Los Angeles, California based company is more than a designer clothing company famous for their running suits. Perfumes are also one of their main attractions. They are responsible for handbags, shoes, accessories, swimwear, babywear and intimates. Juicy Couture is now a global seller.

They have a number of fragrances available on their website here: http://www.juicycouture.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-JuicyCouture-Site/en_US/Search-Show?q=fragrance#/page/1. The perfume is also available in stores and outlets world-wide.

Their history began in 1997 by Pamela Skaist-Levy and and Gela Nash-Taylor. Worn by many Hollywood actresses, their styles are known for their sexual overtones. Madonna was the first public figure to don the running suit for a celebrity endorsement and others soon followed. You can read more about the company’s beginnings here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juicy_Couture.

Viva La Juicy Juicy Couture Perfume.

Viva La Juicy Juicy Couture Perfume is considered a floral fruity gourmand fragrance. Very Berry was my first instinct. And grape chewing gum. But I’m not a kid anymore and I don’t even chew gum. Matter of fact, Bazooka was my gum of choice, so grape doesn’t even bring fond memories. Well, those notes blow off pretty quickly except the high fructose remains.

I really can’t see a reason for wearing this perfume, but all perfumes are fun to test and review. Would be wonderful for a teen, but far too expensive for one that age to purchase.
After about an hour, this fragrance dies down to a cloying generic sweetness. No florals or woodiness mixed in, but I did sense some caramel and a tad bit of vanilla.
I’d say the presentation is more in the bottle and wrapping than what’s inside, but isn’t that how Juicy Couture began with their running suits and logo? Pretty adorably cute packaging on the outside for the younger set. That ribbons just right for the tween. And if you need one for a birthday gift or your kindergartener.
Top Notes: Mandarin Orange, Wild Berries.
Middle Notes: Honeysuckle, Gardenia, Jasmine.
Base Notes: Amber, Vanilla, Caramel, Praline, Sandalwood.
