Juicy Couture's Eau de Parfum

I've never been a fan of Juicy Couture's - partly because its style doesn't appeal to me so much. I've always seen it a a chav-ish attempt at fashion (look at their pieces and you'll see what I mean!). Although, that being said, there are a things I do like about Juicy Couture, one of which is their Eau de Parfum below...

I was lucky enough to grab this last remaining box at the Boxing day sales for half price!








I haven't tried the Body Sorbet yet, although I assume this is another name for lotion.

The bottle of this perfume looks refreshing, different, young and bursting with the scents it contains.
It's a fun chore opening and closing the bottle top ^.^

The scent is slightly sweet, slightly musky but its main composition is a delicate blend of floral notes - reminding one of a bouquet of flowers (it's almost as if you've carefully selected every flower in the bouquet yourself). I'm not fond of florals, yet this has a more friendly approach to its floral notes...which makes it pleasant to the wearer...

The downside is I can't say I'm able to wear this perfume any time I want. It'll depend on my mood. Due to its floral notes, I'd definitely avoid this if I had a headache!

It's a wonderful, refreshing fragrance for spring (and summer), reminding one of every leaf and flower that will soon bloom under the warm rays of the sun.
If you happen to find this for a decent enough price... it's a good way to start off spring time =)

Its average price now (for 50ml) is around £46, for just the perfume alone. So for those who want to get their hands on this, I'd wait and look out for any promotions (of course there's ebay too ^.^)


Liking this distinct feature of the bottle.


P.S. The fragrance does last for a long time but might need top ups depending on the wearer as it settles to a light fine blend of notes, which I prefer much more than its top notes because it's as if only you can smell it and no one else around you can! Although, of course, this depends on how much you spray on.

Very interesting description. Same as you I could not identify myself with Juicy Couture and so never even tested their perfumes. The bottles I have seen I like a lot. After this description I think I'll give it a try ;-))

By the way I really learned to love your blog!
I think we have much in common ;-)

Oh.. I'm definatley loving the bottle, I haven't smelt the scent but one Juicy Couture that I really want is Viva La Juicy..I think its more younger and sweeter.

@ bosnishmuslima : Thank you! =D I'm glad to know that ^.^ I was having a look at your other posts and I have to agree, we have a lot of common scents! I absolutely like Oudh based scents and your blog highlights so many of them (i just realised!). Their bottles are so pretty!

@Sarah Bint Muhammad: I wanted to try out Viva La Juicy - I heard the scent is younger too. Although the tester for it was all gone that during the boxing day sales, so I couldn't test it. Although bizarrely enough, there were a lot of half price boxes for Viva La Juicy, so I assumed it wasn't as nice. But still, I'm curious ^.^

I have the body lotion!
: )
It works wonders. I always struggled to find perfume to stay on my skin and give me my own scent and at last body lotion served the purpose. Who knew? I smell great all day sometimes even to the next~ (and I've gotten compliments on how I smell : D)

You're making me want to try the body lotion now! I still haven't tried it...! =P
I hope it works the same for me ^.^
