This is my absolute favorite scent. It's a warm, sweet smell with undertones of something not quite floral, almost like incense, and yet it's not overpowering. (I hope that description made sense XD) I also own Juicy Couture dusting powder and a sugar scrub in this same scent, and they are both absolutely YUM. The only catch is the price; I paid $52 for a 1 oz bottle of this stuff at Sephora around Christmastime, but I only got the powder and the scrub very recently, both at TJ Maxx for $9.99 and $12.99, respectively. So, it's starting to come down a little, and it's a great find!

I got the bigger bottle, almost cost me 100$ but lasted me forever... It's my favorite perfume ever! It's my signature scent, it's a little bit sweet but still pretty classy, I love it and the packaging is just the cuttest thing ever! <3333

The 80's were my heyday and this definately brings me back! It's like an updated fragrance from that era and to me that is a compliment. It reminds me a lot of Dior's original Poison. I don't smell grape-cool aid, to me it's something grapey or plummy, a little sweet but not not overly so. I find it quite complex compared to many current fragrances and much better than any of the other Juicy fragrances which I didn't care for. I first bought the body lotion which was devine then went back for the fragrance.

I'm definitely not getting the grape note that alot of reviewers are referring to. I guess it comes down to chemistry. I originally smelled a test strip in a magazine, then got a sample vial from Sephora. I liked it from the very first whiff. It is classy and seems well suited for Fall/Winter due to it's warmth (Amber). Definitely a sophisticated oriental but sorta reminds me of something from the 80s. I see a lot of tweens on YouTube raving about it, but don't see it as a young, girly scent. I found a 3.4 oz bottle at TJ Maxx for $50. They also carried the gift sets for $40. I love the bottle too- it looks like something from the Roman Empire or maybe a Catholic Church. My favorite part is the drydown which smells like dryer sheets intermingled with rich florals. MMMmmmm! The staying power could have been a bit better but I still like it. And... If you HATE Chanel No.5, like I do, give this a try. UPDATE: I don't really care for the perfume anymore but stumbled across a bottle of the lotion and fell in love with it! The lotion is ultra sexy and sensual. Very long lasting too.

This is my absolute HG, signature scent. It reminds me of... and it sounds silly... but beer. :/ I am being serious, and I mean it in the nicest possible way. It reminds me of sweet beer, and for some reason... I must love smelling like sweet beer.
This fragrance is a little sweet, but with a certain something I just can't place that makes it stand out to me. It lasts forever on me, and a little goes a long way. The bottle is sturdy and gorgeous!! Plus if you're crafty you can remove the charms and make some jewelry. :D
For a unique, girly, light fragrance, I choose this most of the time and have bought several rollerballs and a full size so far!

Okay, Let me say I LOVE JUICY anything! So oh how I want to love this, trust me, I love sticking to one brand, but I DO NOT love this at all. Although, I can't go on and on and say its horrible because its not! Its just okay to me. I own 3 different JC perfumes and this is my least favorite, however I do still wear it. I read some reviews on this, so I just sprayed mine to write this review and I do not get a grape smell, I just don't. However, I wish I did lol! I can agree with another reviewer who said this reminded her of her mom's perfume, I 2nd that! I am not good at describing scents, so I will leave it at that. I also sprayed my original Juicy Couture on my other wrist, which I do prefer much more. I would describe that as a very classic scent, and reminds me of J LO Glow a little, which I used to like back in the day that is! I think the good thing about Couture Couture is the scent does fade into a less abnoxious scent quickly, hence why I still wear it. This is not a must have for me, but hey it can be for someone else. :]

Well I guess it all has to do with body chemistry, because whenever and wherever I wear this people actually follow me to ask me what I am wearing! I have had guys at counters serving my boyfriend and I blurt out "you smell really nice" to me, and the girls at work all had the same reaction. One who was new and hadn't met me was following me and finally just said "Oh my God what perfume are you wearing, it's amazing!!" Not that I have ever cared what others have thought- but truly the reaction is funny- my boyfriend loves it and we know I will get a comment from someone that day.
One thing I must say is a lot of the reviews on this perfume, as well as others, can get a bit out of hand when describing a f-r-a-g-r-a-n-c-e. I mean- there are truly bad things happening in the world, and to rant about a fragrance as though it is the reason for all evil borders on...no, actually IS ridiculous. One started talking about superficial girls in college and eating disorders. I mean- come on, really! So I never take these reviews seriously, as they are a tad too emotional to be done so. The reason there are so many perfumes out there is because they all turn out different on everyone. So I hope that people can see past all that and not dismiss something before trying it based on an emotional rather than more factual review.
So definitely no old lady, kool aid or grape fragrance on me:) It's the perfect combination, not too sweet, not too heavy. The vanilla seems to balance the other fragrances in it beautifully. My HG, without a doubt. It just smells yummy. Long staying power also, and one of the few perfumes that doesn't give me a headache. It must react with my skin and body chemistry just right. There are also theories about how you eat affecting that sort of thing- and I don't eat junk food or processed foods. Maybe that's the link?

This was the first fragrance I ever tried and lots of people tell me how much it works with my chemistry. I love the scent and it works so well on me! The staying power is amazing, too. This seriously lasted like three days on me without having to reapply. This is my sig scent.

For reference, I really love jasmine scents. This perfume is fairly heavy on the jasmine, and it lasts really well on me. I always get compliments when I wear it (especially from men). The citrus notes are also noticeable in this, but the first thing I smell is jasmine, then citrus. My mother and I are both very prone to migraines, and she has a lot of issues with this scent causing migraines for her. It does not cause headaches for me unless I use too much of it, so that should be noted. A little bit will go a long way. The staying power is amazing, and it's strong enough that I never feel like I need to douse myself in this perfume. I dislike the bottle, though. The zipper thing on the bottle is extremely annoying, and while I know I can remove it, I feel that it detracts from the overall look and feel of the bottle and the perfume itself, if that makes any sense. The top is so tall that I refuse to leave this perfume out where it could be knocked over because the bottle is made in such a way that it's extremely easy to knock it over, and the filigree-type design of the top gets caught on things easily. I don't leave my perfumes out on a dresser or vanity anyway because I don't like them to be exposed to sunlight, but for people who like to display their collections, this aspect could be a nuisance. And since this perfume is not particularly cheap (mid-range price), I don't want to have the bottle broken and have my whole house smell like this perfume. A little bit of this is a good thing, but too much is absolutely terrible.

I'm surprised at all of the negative reviews. I LOVE this perfume! I'm very sensitive to fragrances and easily get headaches and this doesn't trigger any for me! The fragrance notes include: pink grape accord, natural orange flower, and juicy mandarin. Middle notes of jasmine, blushed plum, and honeysuckle. Bottom notes of sandalwood, amber, and vanilla. I can definitely smell the grape but it's not the main fragrance note and it definitely doesn't scream "grape Jolly Rancher." The perfume has such a pleasant and fresh scent to it. It's fruity and sweet but not cloying.....definitely NOT "old lady."The bottle is slightly ridiculous but the more I look at it, the more I don't mind it. The only negative thing I can say about this perfume is that it fades as the day goes on. I can still smell it on my wrists but it's not as strong as when I first spray it in the morning. Also it is a bit pricy but I have found that Kohl's and Gordman's sell it for a discounted price! :) All in all, this perfume is worth it!
