Juicy Couture Perfume Gift Set for Women 3.3 oz Eau de Parfum Spray
Juicy Couture Gift Set ($106 Value)
Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, there were two nice girls named Pam and Gela who discovered the Juicy Couture world of fashion and fun, fun, fun. They took a deep breath and realized this is how The Juicy Girls smell the world!
TOP NOTES: Mouthwatering watermelon, mandarin, and pink passion fruit combined with the sparkling freshness of bright marigold and green apple, enhanced by a splash of water hyacinth and crushed leaves
MIDDLE NOTES: Couture tuberose absolute wrapped in wild rose with sophisticated princess lily and creamy tuberose
BASE NOTES: Caramel créme brulée and vanilla meld with elegant precious woods and patchouliFrom Hollywood to Long Island, Juicy Couture and its valley girl casual ambience is my idea of an All-American brand, with emphasis on the sunny So Cal style. Juicy Couture (2006) perfume smells like I would expect a perfume from them to smell: like strawberries and tuberose, but it's a bit more complex than that. The listed notes are: watermelon, mandarin, pink passionfruit, marigold, green apple, water hyacinth, crushed leaves, tuberose absolute, wild rose, princess lily, caramel crème brulée, vanilla, precious woods and patchouli. When I first sampled it, I thought it smelled overwhelmingly chalky along the lines of Hypnose or Chanel Chance, but upon second try, it's more of an aqueous floral to me, closer to the feeling and quality of Hugo Boss, Liz Claiborne or Chloé, but a touch richer with sweeter base notes. The sillage is pleasant, a bit fresh-sporty and transparent but just candy-sweet enough, reminding me of orange blossom, but with a beachy, breezy attitude. On the whole, it's a very, very good, young and sexy mall scent, and I can see why it's extraordinarily popular. The sex appeal of Juicy Couture is up there in my mind with the Giorgio Beverly Hills brand and also of Gale and Fred Hayman fragrances; it's bound to be another new cult classic along the lines of Giorgio Beverly Hills of the '80s but with a lighter feel. It's on the synthetic side, but if it were more gourmand-sweet, it could almost be Vera Wang Princess. Please stay tuned for my review of Juicy Couture Couture Couture (2009), coming soon.
Pam and Gela wanted every girl to have her own Juicy Couture, so they made a fabulous line of fragrance essentials adorned as only Juicy Couture can—some with charms and trinkets, and all in the most beautiful bottles and jars you've ever seen. Give the gift of Juicy—it's fashionably romantic and fun.
This limited-edition set includes a 3.3 oz Eau de Parfum Spray, a 4.2 oz Frothy Shower Gel, and a 4.2 oz Body Sorbet.
