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.
I had smelled a Juicy perfume a while ago and didn't really care for it too much but when I smelled this one I loved it. I bought this as a set that came with the body lotion and a baby size version of it. The bottle I have is a smaller size but having used it for a year now I still have a lot of this left. I'm not really sure how to describe this but to me it smells like berries and maybe amber or some other kind of warmer note to it. Every time I wear this I receive a compliment on it and even my boyfriend likes it which is also a plus :) This is another fragrance in my top favorites :)
BEST ADVICE HERE!!
I loved this perfume until I saw the price...BUT then I went to walgreens and guess what, they have a knockoff of this perfume. Smells exactly like it, and it cost only $8!!!!! I know..I was also very shocked when I saw it! They also have amazing knockoffs of Chanel!
Why not smell amazing for so cheap? :) No one will know its a knockoff!
I absolutely love all of the juicy perfumes except for the peace love and juicy one. Somehow i always end up loving any perfume with sandalwood in it, but this one is lovely, always get compliments on it, its such a yummy perfume and the bottle is gorgeous as well, cant get enough of it. <3
Sambalina82 gave me her three Juicy rollerball perfumes and I think I have to say this is my favourite of them all! I just love it! Im not a perfume connoisseur, so dont know any of the notes, dry downs etc, but its bloody gorgeous :)
Oh, how I wanted to love this perfume. I received the small spray as a gift and used it the day after. I don't know if this is a rare reaction or what but I have sensitive skin and after spraying this on my wrists and body, I broke out into an INSANE rash. My entire right eye was swollen, I had extremely itchy and enormous bumps all over my body, just... Wow. I'd never had such a reaction before.
I blame it on my sensitive skin, but I can see why it irritated me so severely. The scent is very strong at first and "smells like chemicals" according to my sister.
It did last only a couple hours anyway, so at least I didn't buy a huge bottle of it for eighty bucks. I'm so sad, though, that I can't wear it. I really don't know if my reaction has happened to someone else but I really do love the smell. It's sweet and so amazing! The search for the perfect fragrance continues.
