Juicy Couture:
Viva La Juicy Gold Couture
Perfume Review


Hi Divas!

I know that I have been missing in action on the blog lately. With all the travelling I have been doing and the end of year almost drawing to a close, things have been a little hectic lately. I like to take my time in writing a blog post and bring quality content to you. I don't want to blog just for the sake of pushing posts out and they are rubbish. I know blogs like that and they are the worst! Quality above quantity will always be the motto of the day. Any way in this post I want to do a review on a lovely product I received in Qatar. My Qatari boss gifted me this beautiful Juicy Couture Gold Couture perfume to say thank you for all the hard work I did in his country there. How generous and sweet is he? If only all bosses were this generous and kind. I was so shocked by the surprising kind gesture that I think I thanked him like a 1000 times. I have always wanted to own the original Juicy Couture perfume. Everything about the brand scream 'Diva!'. To finally own a perfume from the Viva La Juicy collection is an absolute dream come true.


The Gold Couture perfume is packaged in a gold box with an intricate black rim pattern and the Viva La Juicy words embossed in bright pink. The box got a little beaten up while travelling in a suitcase by the way. If you know anything about me you will understand why I am dying for this gorgeous packaging. I mean did you see the bottle? The perfume is packaged in a gold bottle with a clear top cut like a diamond. The base has a cute black polka dot ribbon around it. The gold and pink couture motif on the bottle is the masterpiece of the whole look. Again the packaging just defines Diva Desle right there. It is glamorous, charming, fun and bold. The pink and gold colours are captivating and such a pleasure to look at. I cannot wait to display this on my desk next to my other cosmetics. I own the 50ml bottle and it feels quite heavy in my hands. The actual gold glass bottle is very sturdy and feels quite regal.


On to the scent! This one smells similar to the original Juicy Couture perfume but it is a lot warmer. The main notes are Wild Berries, Caramel and Vanilla. The base notes consist of Honeysuckle, Amber and Jasmine Sambac. On the first spritz the perfume has a deep warm scent with the amber and jasmine notes shooting through. After a few seconds the sweet caramel, vanilla and fruity wild berries start warming up on the skin. It has a mixture of a sweet, woody scent with a hint of citrus. It is very inviting and sultry. I think this perfume is perfect for a night out on the town. It's deep and sexy therefore it might be a little too overwhelming for day time. It's not a seasonal scent though, so you can wear it on hot summer nights or stormy winter nights. It lasts a fairly long time before fading after 5 hours. I like that this scent is not overbearing. It has just enough punch and charm to be captivating but not sickening. If you liked the original Juicy Couture scent you would definitely love this one.


I think this edition to Juicy Couture is super fun and flirty. Although it is sweet, it has a mature quality to it. It does not smell like a teenagers room spray, LOL. A 20 something and 40 something woman can rock this fragrance with confidence. Even the bottle packaging although fun and glam can transcend any age. It would look good on any vanity table whether a young or mature lady. I absolutely adore this packaging. It is so stunning. I definitely recommend this perfume if you like sweet and fruity scents. I love that this perfume will always have a strong and pleasant connotation for me. When I see or think of this perfume, I will remember the beauty of Qatar and the kindness and generosity of the Middle East. ;-)

I totally get you babe, I would rather write less than write mediocre stuff too. Your Quatari boss was so sweet and generous, this bottle looks so cute and funky will look out for it :)
