Juicy Couture 'Viva La Juicy' Eau de Parfum - Limited Edition

Afternoon! Hope you're all good. You'll be forgiven for comparing my blog posts to buses.. get none at all for weeks, and then two in two days. You might ask where this new found motivation has sprung from, but it's nothing more from procrastination as multiple uni deadlines loom (eep). I promise when January rolls around my posts will be flowing freely and regularly again. 

Anyway, today I'm bringing you beauty, pure and absolute beauty, in the form of a fragrance in a one of a kind bottle. I kid you not, I felt like somebody had delivered the Crown Jewels to my house for me as I was lifting open the satin covered box and lifting out the weighty, embellished and 'blingy' bottle of Juicy Couture's Limited Edition 'Viva La Juicy'. Noticeably, the bottle has a fair bit going on and it's very extravagant, but it's obviously not going to be to everybody's tastes. While I was in absolute awe of the bottle design and showed it to my mum she responded with a disapproving description of how tacky she thought it was, but it's not her dresser it will proudly be sitting upon - it's mine, and I love it.

I can understand her describing the bottle as tacky because it does lean that way, but it's a luxury tacky. There's a lot of effort gone into this bottle, and it's a far cry from subtle and sophisticated! White, opaque glass bottle with a jewel encrusted plaque of the Juicy Couture logo, and a pink satin ribbon surrounding the crystal style lid, with further bling of an added gem studded dangling charm that says 'Juicy'. 

The huge, and heavy, 100ml bottle is in a limited edition 'luxe' design, exclusive to Selfridges. It does come in at a whoppinggg £85.00 which makes my heart flutter a little bit every time I pick up the bottle and lift the lid, but it's a quality, long lasting eau de parfum with a strong enough fragrance for a small amount to last all day and it comes from a well established brand - things like this don't come cheap. 

I'm torn between the decision of completely dousing myself in this fragrance on a daily basis 'cos it smells just so damn good, or to savour it and use it sparingly for special occasions only because it's precious and once it's gone, it's gone! Of course, I will still have the empty bottle and will be able to repurchase the same original scent 'Viva La Juicy' again.. so I guess that settles it - I'll be wearing it and wearing it, and wearing it some more! Mmmmm.

This is how Selfridges have described the Viva La Juicy scent: "With top notes of wild berries and juicy mandarin gentle tempered with honeysuckle, gardenia, and jasmine. Underlying it all are warm tones of amber, caramel, vanilla, sandalwood and praline". Naturally, my description of the fragrance wouldn't have come out like that, but it is a warm, berry fragrance and I love the rich, creaminess of the vanilla and caramel tones. It is more of a fruity and fun girly scent, without being too sickly sweet and it isn't at all a musky and mature, womanly scent.

As a Selfridges exclusive, and a limited edition, special luxe design bottle this is not one to be missed, especially by Juicy Couture fans.
