The fragrances for ladies from the Juicy Couture brand are known for their vibrant, heavier fruity-floral scent profiles, that’s ‘juicy’ in the ingredients they have, and their packaging as well. Most of the perfumes are seen as complex, luxurious and sweet. So, are all of these fragrances the same or do some of them stand out? Here’s a list of some of the very best from Juicy Couture.
Best Juicy Couture Perfume
Viva La Juicy Gold Couture EDP
Viva La Juicy Gold Couture is a new rendition of the Viva La Juicy perfume available back in 2008. Released back in 2014, and is a decadent, glamorous version of the original. This golden blend is luscious, and begins with wild berries and remains that way till it reaches the heart. Then, you have notes of honeysuckle, jasmine and roll off into a warm aroma of golden amber, sandalwood, vanilla elixir, and caramel.
This lively classic feel extends to the packaging that is golden, with hot pink colours and logos. Viva La Juicy Gold Couture comes in the 50, 50, 100 ml bottles.
- a lively
- brilliant mix of florals and fruity accords
- heavy notes improve longevity
- complicated scent,
- sweet nature is designed for younger women
It’s easy for perfumers to get carried away when describing what their perfume smells like! But yes, this definitely has that sexy, powerful sex-bomb a=factor to it. Mid 2000’s but not dated. In simple words, it has that caramelized pineapple to it, gourmand, yummy and decadent as well. On the other hand, you need to really love caramel in order to wear something like this all day, and if you’re not into powerful gourmands, this might feel a bit punchy, sweet, strong and synthetic to you.So it’s not for everyone, that’s for sure.
The best time and occasions would be an extravagant outing, date night at the club or winter, with just a few sprays. We liked the sillage only when it was smelled up close. And it was creamy, with some white flowers and sweet and has better interior notes. Is it a bad perfume? No. Has it been overhyped? Yes!
I Love Juicy Couture Perfume For Women EDP
This is the ‘makeover’ version of the original ‘I Am Juicy Couture’ launched back in 2015. The profile is supposed to be feminine, confident and a little on the mischievous side. So the fragrance has been designed to appeal to the playful, sensual personality and spirit. It’s been brought alive by a cheerful, zesty mandarin accord and ends on mysterious patchouli.
Opening notes are floral-fruity in nature and is filled with taffy apple, fresh mandarin, and red currant. The florals comprise of jasmine, tiger lily, pink honeysuckle, and jasmine petals. The patchouli is enhanced by musk and amber.
- typical floral-fruity composition
- vibrant and flowery top notes
- mysterious amber-musk dry down
- heavy composition not meant for everyone
- can be a bit too cloying
- poor longevity
The initial spray is overwhelming, with this patchouli burst. It’s only a few minutes later that it begins to reveal a tart mandarin, musky aroma. The dry down is a fresh move away from the heavy florals, but this is when the amber, honeysuckle is evident. The pineapple is missing though, but it’s still this kind of EDP you’d reserve for dancing at the club!
It reminds us of Golden Goddess from Baby Phat; clearly a sexy-honey patchouli blend. One good thing about this is that has weak longevity and is a skin scent. Its better suited to someone wanting a light, sweet, floral fruits composition or for the younger crowd.
Juicy Couture Hollywood Royal EDT Spray
Juicy Couture launched this Hollywood Royal Limited Edition in 2015 and is supposed to be an amped-up version of the original. So, given the nature of the brand and all the scents they’ve released so far, this fragrance is creamy, youthful with that unmistakable floral-fruits fragrance character of the Juicy Couture brand.
The composition starts out on notes of candied apple, pomelo, pear that reaches a heart filled with creamy white petals and calms down to a base of cashmere wood, marshmallow, vanilla, and soft musk. The bottle has this metal star accent on it and comes in the 75 ml and 150 ml bottles.
- mild take on the sweet perfumes,
- more sweetness than florals and fruity accords
- low sillage
- an average longevity
We think that what’s written doesn’t really begin to convey what this scent is like. On the first spray, it’s nice, has good longevity but appears to be more of a seasonal fragrance.After dry down, it is barely noticeable on the skin and in some ways that good otherwise this scent would be too strong for regular use.
If you like marshmallows or lots of marshmallows, then add Hollywood Royal to your list of must-have perfumes.Hollywood Royal is a good break from the candy apple scent and is more of a dry, woody apple that is long-lasting, clean and fresh – and it’s playful, pretty and immature. The main notes are the candy apple, marshmallow while the vanilla, gardenia adds life to the scent.A good, pretty option for those days when you don’t know what to wear.
I Am Juicy Couture EDT Spray
The I Am Juicy Couture EDT is cut out for the girl that’s rebellious, unapologetic and independent. This one has got a floral-fruity composition as well; with pomelo, passion fruit and raspberry. So, it is meant to be loud, strong and pungent, with ingredients that add to this nature of the scent. At the heart, you have heliotrope, gardenia, rose de mal and sweet pea and this rests on a base made out of amber, warm woods, and musk. The bottle is available as 30ml, 50ml, and 100ml variants.
- big, bold scent profile
- wonderfully composed
- moderate lasting power and sillage
This is definitely not one of those sugary, sweet fragrances but more of an amber, overripe fruit kind of sweet, more like a plum type of vibe to it. So, it’s a move away from the uber-feminine scents that one can expect from Juicy Couture, and can be worn by younger and older people alike.
When we first sprayed this on for reviewing it, we got accords of what smelled like cranberry – that’s probably the raspberry. After spraying it a few more times and letting it settle on our skin, we found that it was of a white chocolate and cranberry mix, even though there aren’t any chocolate notes.
Many people did talk about how it doesn’t last even though they sprayed it several times.We think that this type of sweetness is strong enough for the entire day, and so longevity must depend on the situation, weather ad how it plays on your skin.
Juicy or not, we think that there’s a Juicy Couture out there for everyone. Affordable and a recognized brand, make sure to get one for your dressing table today.
