None of the juicy fragrances appealed to me until I sniffed a Viva La Juicy insert in a nordstrom mailer. I had to have it! In the insert this had a sweet berry vanilla with a hint of citrus, it was amazing and I couldn't get it out of my head. I had a sephora 15% off code so I quickly ordered a gift set (came with edp and small lotion).
I can't say I have a sophisticated nose but I will try my best at describing this. It starts out mostly fruity, to me it is a strong citrus scent with some berry, after about 20 min it calms down to a softer berry mixed with vanilla and very light powdery floral. The dry down is my favorite part.
I feel a little silly enjoying this young fragrance so much at 28. My signature fragrances for years now have been Chanel allure sensuelle and Chanel coco mademoiselle which I consider more sophisticated.
My only complaint about this fragrance is it doesn't last. After an hour it is amlmost undetectable and I can only smell it if I put my nose right up to my skin. I even tried spraying this all over like a body spray and it still didn't last. That is very disappointing for a edp. The results are the same when layered with the body lotion.
This set is $70 on sephora.com
I love this perfume!! It is the only one I will use! I searched for that one perfect fragrance I could wear all the time, anytime, and I found this one! I've tried other fragrances that smell good, but I am in love with Viva La Juicy! It is worth the price for me, it lasts for such a long time! I buy the largest bottle possible and I prefer to get it around the holidays because they have great sales and gift sets. The last set I got was about a year ago, I got the large bottle, a lotion and a travel spray. My bottle of perfume isn't even a third of the way gone! And the smell is amazing! Love it!!
I'm very surprised by this product. I usually don't like Juicy Couture things, but this is an exception. It smells fun, flirty, and sophisticated all at the same time. I tried this on at Sephora and the scent lasted me the entire day until I showered. Can't wait to finish up all my other fragrances so I can buy this!
I'm absolutely obsessed with this perfume. I really disliked any of the other Juicy perfumes, but I truly love this one. Got it as a present for Valentines Day along with the lotion. It smells amazing - like a fresh vanilla kind of scent, but not too strong. It's very light - perfect for all year round, really. I get so many compliments when I wear this (which is almost everyday!) Definitely recommend this and try it out!
I bought Viva la Juicy for my son's girlfriend. She likes gourmand/vanilla based scents. I checked the reviews on MUA and some perfume sites and bought this scent unsmelled.
I got the chance to try this out at Kohl's tonight and I'm really pleased. It's a lovely warm sweet gourmand oriental which dries down to a vanilla and woodsy base which is quite warm and comforting. You can sense sweet creamy berries in this on first spritz. Then the vanilla notes come into play. And later the woody base.
I can highly recommend Viva La Juicy to any lover of comforting gourmand oriental scents.

Viva la Juicy Perfume for Women by Juicy Couture
Funky, flirty, fun...
From the designing duo that turned a velour track suit into a fashion statement comes this fresh gourmand woody-oriental scent for women. The top notes of Viva La Juicy mix wild berries with peach nectar and mandarin over a warm floral heart with coconut orchid; a creamy base comes from notes of amber, vanilla, caramel, and woods. Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture is funky, flirty and fun. Launched in 2008.
This is the only perfume out of the now 3 Juicy Couture perfumes that have been released that I like. I loveeee this smell and I hate the other two Juicy fragrances with a passion! I do understand that its geared towards maybe a younger generation since it is a bit sweet but I think any age could really pull this off. My friends and I have nicknamed it to "This is what a hot girl smells like". It's great to wear on a night out with friends or on a date.
I LOOOOOOVE this scent. I sprayed some while I was in Kolhs & I Fell In Love. I saw it on target again & bought the 1 oz since it was $32 & at Kolhs it was $45 so I was sold. My boyfriend loooves this smell! continued >>
another product that i like that nobody else on MAU likes.
i like it. it smells good. i mean i'd probably want to dress up really cute on a day i wear it b/c it has a smell that says "i want to smell good. i'm probably not natural. i'm probably a slut"
but it gave me confidence one day when i was depressed walking around in kohls. so i bought it at cvs.
cvs had buy one get one 50 percent off. it was cheaper than kohls prices.
This is the first time I've ever purchased a second bottle of perfume! I love love love the smell and the packaging is oh-so-cute. Everyone compliments me on it! I'm sensitive to strong fragrances and this is very mild, but still smells SO lovely, and lasts all day. It's definitely my signature smell (:
Tried this at david jones today..really wanted to like it after reading reviews but smelled cheap generic and musky. not pleasant.
I smelled it on 3 friends, hated it on all of them. Not classy, not sexy, just overwhelming sugary yuck.
sorry..did want to like it lol
