I am always on the search for a perfect perfume and this has been the best I have found so far. It just seems to work for me. It is a very pretty smell that works for all occasions and I use it almost every day.
The pitfalls of this product are that it does not last long and it feels a bit "young" to me. This product is great for teens or early twenties but for myself, at 25, I feel like I may be a bit too old to pull this off anymore.
In my opinion, this is a perfume for every occasion. It can be worn during warmer weather because of it's floral notes, and during colder weather because of it's warming undertones. It's a daytime perfume as well as a nighttime perfume. I love it! The first time I smelled this, I HAD to have it. I purchased the rollerball at first because I couldn't afford the full-sized bottles, and also to make 100% sure I loved it before purchasing aforementioned expensive larger bottles. After saving up my money for my trip to Katy, Texas where there is a Juicy Couture outlet store, I purchased a 3.4 oz bottle for an awesome price! I wear Viva La Juicy pretty frequently both during the day and night. After about 6 months I used up about 60% of the bottle, so I've started to save the rest for special occasions where smells pretty is necessary. That's how I'd describe this perfume in one word: Pretty. It's very feminine. And it doesn't remind me of any other perfume or smell like typical perfumes nowadays, so in my book it gets alot of originality points! I encourage all woman to give this perfume a sniff, and if you like it, IMO, you can't go wrong with it!
This is probably the perfume I use the most, have had it for several years and love it.
There comes a time when after trying so many fragrances you finally find the one that does it for you. Love at first whiff just got better!!! I could wear this perfume 24/7 and never tire of it. Its sweet and i love the sugary staff. Its gorgeous and sexy. Am in love!!!
However, am holding back one lippie because of the lousy longevity and the high cost that goes with it. If its ever reformulated it should be to increase the staying power and leave the rest intact...
I have two bottles (a 1.7oz and 3.4oz) sitting on my dresser because I love this perfume so much. Its my winter scent! To me, it smells like vanilla and sweet berries...with a freshness--not like clean or laundry-like. Just fresh berries and slight vanilla. Don't worry, the vanilla isn't too much-because I'm not a big fan of straight vanilla.
I absolutely love this perfume. I am definitely not a fragrance type of person, but when I received a sample size of this with a gift for Christmas I knew I had to get it. It is a little pricey, but I wouldn't say its cheap, but it is a lot more affordable than other perfumes out there. The bottle is in a word, glam and it smells fresh, light, and young, perfect for someone my age who's looking for something more than body spray, but less of a serious, more mature fragrance.
I've seen a lot of reviews complaining that the scent does not last and that may be because some of you bought a fake bottle of Viva La Juicy. I got a bottle off Ebay as a gift and right away knew it was a fake. The scent lasted no longer than ten minutes and it after it dried it smelled like chemicals. I sent it back and got a refund and then just went to Macy's and bought it there instead. The price was a lot more at Macy's, but at least you know the product is legit, and you even get a free gift! I got a cute little wristlet as my free gift with a little baby size of Viva La Juicy inside of it. I plan to just carry it around in my purse as a refresher.
Overall, I'd say this product is well worth the price. Just save up and treat yourself if you're on the fence about purchasing it. I'm sure you'll be happy after you do. I will be using Viva La Juicy for a very long time.
I thought I wanted this but after I got it for Christmas I wore it for two days and then returned it. I think it was the amber note that was a little cloying. I wanted to love it but it has something in it that really irritated my allergies. I took it back and went back to my old faithful, L'eau D'Issey.
Oh, how I wanted to dislike this perfume. Yes, DISLIKE. Why? Because everyone and their sister, aunt, and cousin's best friend's roommate like it and wear it. The first time I smelled this, I knew I had smelled it before. That may not necessarily be a testament to how many people wear it, but to how many fragrances out there include many of the same notes. But I digress. This perfume is friggin' delicious, very sweet and warm. It combines aspects of several other fragrances: it opens with the syrupy berry quality of Midnight Fantasy by Britney Spears, but not quite as young and sugary. As it develops, it becomes richly floral, à la Midnight Rain by La Prairie. On the drydown, it takes on the warm, almondy vanilla creaminess of Ralph Lauren Hot. I am surprised by the complaints about the longevity, as I get a good 6-8 hours with this, and don't get that with many fragrances. For me, the one downside is that I find it to be quite heavy; this fragrance walks a fine line between scrumptious, and cloyingly suffocating, and I find it easy to go overboard and spray too much. And there is the recognizability factor, but that doesn't bother me as much because it's the individual that makes the fragrance, not the other way around. Unfortunately, given this fragrance's immense popularity, I'm kind of bored with it, as I have smelled it too often, on too many young women. I also associate it with a different type of girl - maybe the glamorous teenager at the top of the high school social hierarchy - definitely not me. All in all, I enjoy this perfume, but do not feel that it fits me.
According to perfumenet, the scent is honeysuckle, gardenia, jasmine, praline, amber, caramel, vanilla, and sandalwood. On me it's very sweet, with the praline, amber, and caramel being super strong. The drydown is pure vanilla. It smells amazing, and isn't terribly overpowering! It doesn't last too long, though, but the lovely scent more than makes up for that! I can't comment on the packaging, as I was gifted this perfume in a long, narrow glass container with Juicy Couture emblazoned on the side (it took a little hunting to find out which perfume it was!)
Sweet smell , it lasts long and i love the packaging.
