Customer Love Notes: Long Live Juicy

Nerd alert: One of our favorite things to do is read the customer reviews in the Birchbox Shop. You all are an opinionated bunch—and we like it! We especially adore when you write about your favorite purchases. From time to time, we’ll be highlighting some of your extra sweet product love letters on the blog.

Juicy Couture Viva la Juicy, a bold update to the original Juicy Couture fragrance, still incorporates the same floral bouquet as its predecessor, plus notes of creamy vanilla, rich caramel, and warm sandalwood. We feel completely feminine (and, truth be told, a little sassy) when we wear it. We’re also fans of the hefty glass bottle, which features sparkly gold charms and an oversized bow. Turns out, we’re not the only ones a little nutty for this fragrance. Check out what these Birchbox fans had to say: 

"I received this as a sample in my monthly Birchbox. I thought it smelled pretty darn good but I wasn’t expecting to get the reaction from my husband. He said, "Wow, you smell good. I really like that." Later on, he called me at work and said it must have rubbed off on him cause the (great) smell was driving him crazy—ha!"— Jenn

"Since discovering Viva La Juicy, I haven’t wanted to use another fragrance. To me, it’s fun and light but still catches the attention of anyone who gets a whiff. I wear it everyday and I have yet to get tired of it."— Gigi708

"I can be quite picky when it comes to perfume but I absolutely love this scent. Wearing it makes me feel feminine and sexy. Perfect for day or night, it’s bold enough that others will notice it but not so strong that it will make people run away :). Viva La Juicy is definitely a new favorite of mine and I am so happy I got a sample in box so that I could discover this gem." — Niki

3 Spring Trends and Fragrances to Add to Your Wardrobe (Now!)

image

We approach scents much like we do our wardrobe: mixing, matching, and rotating fragrances throughout the season. Is it any wonder that our favorite fashion looks tend to influence both our outfits and our spritzes? While reporting at the Fall/Winter 2013 shows, we spotted three trends that we can’t wait to add to our closets. And since we’re never ones to selectively shop, here are the fragrances that will be joining our fragrance wardrobe.

In the 9th century, Persian women and men crushed thousands of fresh blossoms to score a few drops of sweet-smelling oil. Like these ancient beauty gurus (and early Birchbox Men), I have my own perfume ritual. 

Every couple months, I rearrange my prized—and ever-growing—perfume collection and choose one bottle (and therefore one scent) to take center stage. (Dorky, I know!) But it keeps me from falling into a rut and forces me to cycle through all my favorites. This month, I’m loving Juicy Couture’s latest scent, Juicy Couture La La, which makes me feel ultrafeminine.

With bright opening notes that mellow into a body of soft floral notes,  the blend is fresh and pretty without being overtly girly. It’s the perfect thing to pair with a vintage cocktail ring, cashmere sweater, and cigarette pants—or maybe just your usual jeans and tee. 

Beyond the packaging and lush scent, I love that Juicy created Juicy Couture La La as an ode to fearless free spirits. Every time I wear it I can’t help thinking of the free spirit who inspired my perfume mantra: Andy Warhol. The iconic artist once explained,

“I switch perfumes all the time. If I’ve been wearing one perfume for three months, I force myself to give it up, even if I still feel like wearing it, so whenever I smell it again it will always remind me of those three months.”

What new scent are you adding to your fragrance wardrobe?

Charmed, I’m Sure: Why Juicy Scents Are My Vanity Staples

image

For as long as I can remember, my vanity has always been a work in progress, but my prized perfume collection is definitely a permanent fixture. When it comes to selecting a scent, a perfume has to pass the initial sniff test—but the bottle’s lovely details (or lack thereof) determine whether it will ultimately win a spot on my vanity.

That’s how I came to amass a trio of Juicy Couture perfumes among my vintage trinkets and flea market finds. I’ve previously gushed about the brand’s scents, but you might be surprised to know it’s the elegant heavy-cut glass bottles and cute accents that have turned me into a sworn convert.
