Another season a new Juicy Couture Perfume to enjoy! This time around it’s Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Soiree a light, breezy, and easy to wear fragrance for Spring with fresh floral notes of water lily and jasmine combined with juicy mandarin orange and a musky, woodsy base.

I have to admit that Juicy draws me in with their loud and brightly packaged fragrances. With each new release it seems like the bottles get more and more crazy and fun. I tend to store my fragrances in their original boxes but I do rotate ones I keep on my vanity seasonally and I’ll take all my Juicy Couture ones out come Spring and Summer and display them. They just look so crazy fun paired up together.

Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Soiree arrives in a fuschia and purple paint splattered bottle with Juicy’s gold emblem decorating the front of the square bottle. The large crystal cap has a traditional big bow tired around it and a nod to masquerades and Mardi Gras come in the form of an adorable mask charm that dangles from the bow.

Juicy calls this a woodsy floral musk but I thought it had fresher sweet notes and I didn’t get too much warmth from the woodsy base notes. It’s odd as the base notes are musk, amber, and woods but none of these come through at all. At first mist I smell the tart sweetness of kiwi which isn’t even a note that’s listed and this note hold a dominate place in the blend for me. As it settles down I get a bit of an aquatic freshness from water lily which combines subtly with mandarin. The scent is sweet but not terribly so and comes across fresh and light. It’s very easy to wear and isn’t as cloying like fruity and sweet as many Juicy fragrances are. The fruit and floral notes seem to live in harmony together to create a beautifully fresh scent that’s easy to wear. It reminds me of a glass of fruit flavored ice tea!

It’s surprisingly long wearing for such a light scent but doesn’t project terribly unless someone is standing next to you. To me this all translates as a perfect and ideal scent for Spring.

Viva La Juicy Soiree isn’t my favorite Juicy fragrance by any means but it isn’t a complete write off either. If you like your scents sweet but not too sweet and fresher you’ll enjoy this blend.

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.

    You def hit all the right notes in your fragrance reviews. Great job. I only wish we had the same preferences, tiny lol. You might wish to look at Michele’s fragrance blog, Binxcat’s Purrfect Fragrances. She writs scents well, too.
