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

If Lionel Richie’s 1984 hit taught us anything, it’s the importance of saying, “Hello.—and nothing says it better than this standout fragrance. A longtime Birchbox best-seller, Harvey Prince’s Hello perfectly balances top notes of Meyer lemons and Satsuma mandarin with summery floral scents like forsythia and pink plumeria. We could wax poetic about its hypnotic powers, but we’ll let these Harvey Prince fans take over:

"I don’t usually bother with perfumes, but this fragrance is so delightful it’s worth making an exception! The scent is light, dynamic, and distinctive. And while scents are definitely a subjective thing (my sister and I are constantly at odds over what scents we like and dislike), I can honestly say when I wore this everyone I interacted with commented positively on how great I smelled! - Beth

"Oh the wonders of Harvey Prince! This is the first perfume company I fell in love with. I love that it makes me [feel] more cheerful and bubbly—Any time I dread having to make an acquaintance of someone, I spritz a little of this and voilà! I’m suddenly much more excited and ready to take on the world. Thank you Birchbox for opening my eyes to such a wonderful fragrance, and thank you Harvey Prince for making such a perfect concoction! Strongly recommend!" Heather

"As one reviewer said, this is a very "optimistic" perfume, with wonderful floral and citrus scents. My boyfriend, who normally grimaces when I put on perfume, kept coming over to smell the scent! Definitely a keeper." - Kate

These ladies have us convinced—have you tried this one-of-a-kind fragrance?

It’s a well-know beauty fact: Citrus-based fragrance can be extremely tricky to pull off. Until now, that is. Highly concentrated and totally distinctive, Atelier Cologne’s Orange Sanguine Cologne Absolue lasts longer than traditional citrus scents and elegantly blends sweet blood orange and bitter orange with heady jasmine and rich sandalwood. 

"Orange Sanguine Cologne by Atelier Cologne is absolutely extraordinary. Any time I spray it, it smells almost as if someone is peeling oranges right next to me. This scent lifts my mood immediately. Sunshine in a bottle."- Monikaus

"The hubby loves it! What a beautiful scent, it smells like oranges which makes me thing of mimosas—and that’s not a bad thing. This just might become my new signature scent."Jade

"I hate perfume. Hate it. Absolutely cannot stand the stench of most of it. And if you say "citrus" to me, I immediately think of the nauseatingly sweet smell of a Victoria’s Secret body splash. No really, I absolutely cannot stand most perfume. But this one?THIS. IS. GLORIOUS. Light, yet sophisticated. Clean, yet elegant. Refreshing, delicious, and because of its concentration it lasts a good long while without being overbearing. I bought it immediately. And I’m going to buy more."- Bourbonface

Inspired by vibrant SoCal beaches and chic Parisian cafés, Joie’s Folle de Joie eau de parfum is an uplifting and memorable perfume. But don’t just take our word for it—here’s a peek at what several adoring customers had to say about this one-of-a-kind fragrance: 

"I completely love this scent…the description accurately portrays how I feel when I put this on. I get compliments from many people and I really feel like a young adult when I wear this. I saved up a long time because i HAD to have it. It’s the only perfume i have ever been compelled to buy. Thank you!"Ssstephanie

4 Destination-Inspired Scents

image

Swoonable travel destinations have inspired countless movies (Midnight in Paris, nous adorons), classic books (In Patagonia was one of our first loves), and an endless number of postcards. Hot spots also serve as the inspiration behind some of our favorite fragrances. Whether you’re heading to a hip locale or simply indulging some wanderlust fantasies, spritz on one of these winning fragrances to channel your inner vagabond.

Destination: Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy 

On a hike in the mountains of Italy, Atelier Cologne founders Sylvie Ganter and Christopher Cervasel stumbled upon a rare flower known to locals as the Brunello and were immediately entranced by its amber bouquet. After returning home, they were inspired to create a scent that paid homage to their fragrant memory, and Ambre Nue was born. A spritz of this highly concentrated scent will transport you (at least mentally) to a chic Italian ski resort. Buon viaggio!

Destination: East Hampton, New York

You don’t need a chi-chi summer rental to fit in with the locals—simply tear open Nomaterra’s seaside-inspired Eau de Parfum Fragrance Wipes. Perfect for world travelers and weekend warriors alike, the handy wipes stand up to the jostling of plains, trains, and automobiles. Inspired by founder Agnieszka Burnett’s childhood summer travels, East Hampton pairs bright citrus notes with enigmatic Egyptian jasmine and Indonesian patchouli.

Destination: Papeete, Tahiti

Inspired by the South Pacific, niche perfumery Comptoir Sud Pacifique is dedicated to creating sweet scents inspired by exotic beach getaways. One of our faves: Vanille Coco, which pays homage to Tahiti’s lush climes and black sand beaches. The mix seamlessly blends sparkling heliotrope with layers of coconut milk and relaxing Tahitian vanilla—and will have visions of thatched roofs and clear blue water dancing in your head in no time at all.

Destination: Los Angeles, California

Juliette Has A Gun’s offbeat Not a Perfume may not be specifically inspired by the City of Angels, but it channels L.A.’s rock-and-roll sensibilities perfectly. This unique blend relies on the single note of cetalox, a synthetic substitute for grey amber. The result is clean and pure, as well as being allergen-free. Makes us want to head for the (Hollywood) Hills.
