I bought this bc of the price and wasnt sure what to expect. I dont know why everyone keeps saying it smells like white diamonds because it does not. It smells 80 percent like VLJ and has no staying power, which obviously sucks. But it does really smell like a great impression of VLJ. After having this perfume for a while now and smelling in CONSTANTLY lol, to me it smells like soap. I think impression perfumes are good to buy if you do not anticipate to rely on them. Girls.. you need the real thing. If you can not affor Viva la Juicy and just want this to maintain your signature scent or smell to smell ok, then fine, but this perfume alone should not be your go to fragrence. I am going to purchase the real VLJ and keep the impression bottle with me when i am on the go, so just in case it breaks i only lost a 3 dollar bottle and the 95 dollar real thing.
Okk this smells nothing like viva la juicy. Like a reviewer said, it smells just like white diamonds or something of that nature. I bought it thinking it would smell as fruity as viva la juicy, but Its musky instead. Im sure there are people who enjoy this immitation thought. Its worth a try since it is worth less than 10 $ ibguess...
It smells like Viva La Juicy...for the most part...but it doesnt last. I had to spray a lot on this morning and by the time I got to work I couldnt even smell it. This might be ok if you keep it with you and respray throughout the day. I don't have time for that, though.....but for the price, it was worth trying.
It's um it's nice, it stays on for a long time!(: It was 5 dollars at kmart & It smells like white diamonds I don't really like it. I got the mini lotion and roll on sepretly at kmart for like 2 bucks, and my friend left her mini body lotion at my house and she forgot about it so I thought I'd "Borrow" it (; but the roll on and lotion smell really diffrent then the perfume the roll on and lotion actaully smell like "viva la juicy" but the perfume smells more like white diamonds I prefer the roll on and lotion but I'd buy it again just to wear for fancy places It's not that bad(: continued >>
They must have changed the formula from when the others reviewed this! It smells NOTHING like VLJ. It smells like White Diamonds or some other older woman classic floral. It is not necessarily an unpleasant scent, but c'mon! What's the point of a dupe??
This knock-off of Viva La juicy by Juicy Couture smells just like Viva La Juicy. I was impressed! It also stays on for a long time. The maximum stay is probably 5-7 hours for me. The packaging is super cute and adorable. Preferred Fragrance (the company who made this dupe) did a wonderful job with the packaging. I did wish I can take off the cap so I can transfer some of the perfume to my travel size bottle, but other than that, I love everything about it. For the price of La Vida Loca ($5), I will definitely buy again.
****Bought another big bottle, but it doesn't smell like the first one I purchased. They might have changed the formula **Btw, this review is for the big bottle sold separately. I ran into the gift set version of this @ a Rainbow clothing store in NYC but it didn't smell the same as the one i tried -- not as good of a dupe, in my opinion.
A more subtle version of Viva la Juicy. I tried this because I was with a friend and she pulled it out. She said it was good for the price she paid and smelled almost like Viva la juicy. I agree. It's not as strong as viva la juicy, and not as long lasting, but it's pretty good for the price (about 5 dollars?). Just a good fragrance, especially for those on a budget.
If I run into this, I'll be sure to purchase a bunch of these.
I'm so happy I found this, I like the original more, but this is pretty close. I got it in a set, for 9.99 I think, it came with shower gel, the fragrance, and lotion.
Not really sure what got into me to really want to buy a dupe fragrance. Typically impression-type fragrances smell off from the original and have horrendous cheap packaging, suspicious ingredients and basically not even worth my time however I'm actually quite surprised by this one. The scent on La Vida Loca is not "cheap" smelling as I would have assumed. Infact for an impression/replica-type scent perfume, it actually isn't full blast of alcohol at all. Quite heavy on the fragrance oils and minimal on the initial alcohol mist when you spray it (I've had worse luck with designer fragrances in regards to the alcohol issue). Ingredients are very simple: alcohol, fragrance, demineralized water.
The scent dry down is close to the original however it's slightly less sweet and more powdery/musky on me than Viva La juicy. Honestly, I prefer this one more than the original. The smell is a bit more mature but sweet at the same time. It still smells very close though that one can't tell it apart and should just assume the difference is merely due to a body-chemistry reaction on my end.
The sillage unfortunately like a heavy body spray than an EDP though which is why this won't get a 5 but the staying power is still decent and doesn't disappear in a few hours. Viva La Juicy is a very common perfume that I never wanted to spend full money on it but I have always liked the scent that occasionally I would want to wear it. The bottle to La Vida Loca is in sturdy glass with simple text printing and a heavy plastic cap adorned with a basic fuchsia bow... It doesn't look cheap at all that I don't mind putting this on my vanity. If you want a bigger bow, you can always customize it yourself. I've seen these range from $5-10 depending on the store.. I suggest looking around in trendy clothing shops as I've found a gift set with a 3.3oz perfume, 3oz body lotion, 3oz shower gel in a cute gift box for only 5 bucks! What a steal :)
P.S. I agree with the reviewer below that the name to this perfume is ridiculous however when I looking at these among a huge selection of other knock-off perfumes.. there's much worse out there that this one is tolerable.
I won't pay full price for Viva La Juicy & I kept getting outbid for it on eBay so after I read the review below for this knockoff, I decided to eBay it as well. I ended up paying $11 for it but it really does smell just like the real thing & the 3.3oz bottle is not only big w/tons of perfume but it's pretty also. It's creamy, vanilla-y, just a little spicy, warm & sweet-smelling just like the original designer fragrance. Great quality knockoff. The only thing I really hate about this fragrance is the ridiculous name.
