Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Sucre is the latest perfume to join the Juicy Couture family and of course, it’s a gourmand fragrance! It’s a funny thing about Juicy Couture Fragrances, I used to hate them! I was really not a fan but after finally purchasing my first Juicy Couture perfume I ended up becoming incredibly hooked on their fragrances.

They truly take sugary sweet florals to the ultimate height. So, if that’s not your thing no need to read further.

But for my sweet gourmand fans, this one is for you! I mean, really, sucre literally translates to sugar so, what do you expect? ๐Ÿ™‚

I think the first thing that should be discussed with Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Sucre is the bottle yes? I mean how cute is this bottle? Juicy has always favored decorating their fragrances ou with big old bows and cute little charms but they went above and beyond with Sucre. This reminds me of a big old cupcake or even a bon bon. The entire bottle is housed in a faux foil paper lining that you’d find on a cupcake or a truffle. It of course, features Juicy’s emblem in gold in the middle and the bottle has white chocolate or fluffy white frosting dripping down it. And of course, the crystal top nas a big old pink polka dot bow. Childish, whimsical, cute, and totally Juicy Couture right?

I’ve read a few thoughts on Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Sucre across fragrance and most users are saying it reminds them a lot of Ari by Ariana Grande. I’m also hearing that they feel it smells a lot like the original Juicy. I don’t really agree with either. This is a lot sweeter compared to the original Viva La Juicy fragrances and Ari which has a lot more of a cotton candy element.

At first spray, there’s a sugary hit of red currant and mandarin which are drenched in a cream notes. If you close your eyes and take a moment you can pick apart some of the notes here like hints of peach nectar that mingles with almond cream and orange flower. But I find it challenging to pick the notes apart because the first mist is a syrupy, sugary treat that never lets up even during the dry down. As it sets and dries down the sweetness remains full frontal and hints of vanilla come out to play at this point. If sugary, sweet florals are something you adore, this won’t disappoint you as it’s like walking into the garden and sprinkling sugar and juice from a jar of maraschino cherries all over the flowers.

The wear is quite good at around 5 hours with a nice linger and a little bit of a mellowing of the fragrance as at around hour four it loses some of it’s initial sweetness and gives way to more vanilla.

If Viva la Juicy isn’t sweet enough for you I doubt Sucre will disappoint. This takes sugar and sweetness to a way higher level. The scent is girlish, youthful, with plenty of cuteness thrown in.

Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Sucre is available now at sephora.com, ulta.com and HSN.com and there’s a new Juicy Couture Viva la Juicy Extrait de Parfum as well!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

      It’s back in stock 1.7oz on HSN today. I got this when it was first released on HSN and I have been absolutely loving it. The bottle suckered me in and the scent did not disappoint. It’s exactly what I imagined it would be, DELICIOUS.

    Muse, we are adopting a needy family at work and buying them gifts and needed things, and so in addition to some necessities, I had to buy a few beauty indulgences to lift the mom’s spirits…I bought her a mini-bottle of Viva La Juicy La Fleur and a Pacifica Mini Body Butter Duo at Target on my lunch break! I hope she loves them.

    • Isabella Muse

      wow that is such a sweet idea! I’m positive she’ll adore them Bonnie ๐Ÿ™‚
