Viva La Juicy Sucre by Juicy Couture has to be one of the most eye catching fragrances that I’ve ever laid my eyes on!
The packaging is nothing short of a delectable work of art which sees the iconic Viva la Juicy bottle transformed into what can only be described as a cupcake!
The bottle sits within a structured gold case and features creamy frosting dripping all over the top. A pink polka dot bow adorns the lid, rather like the cherry on the top of a cake leaving a fabulous physical representation of the sweet, delicious scent within.
With a fragrance that looks like this you may expect to experience an overwhelmingly sugary, sickly sweet scent, but you will be surprised to discover that this is not the case.
Yes, it is a sweet fragrance, but it is also soft, creamy and sumptuous.
Viva La Juicy Sucre opens with top notes of mandarin and juicy red currant with Brazilian gardenia.
This fruitiness gives way to heart notes of orange flower, jasmine sambac, peach nectar and almond cream, a beautiful combination of soft sweetness.
Base notes of vanilla extract and sandalwood offer a sweet warmth while crushed cocoa beans finish off the fragrance with an undeniably decadent and delicious note.
Fans of gourmand scents should not be put off by the over the top appearance of the bottle.
Is the bottle chic and sophisticated? Hell no. It’s cute playful and dare I say it, a tad gaudy but the fragrance is really rather lovely.
It is a sophisticated gourmand that I really enjoy using.
Fans of Angel and La Vie Est Belle will love this.
