There is a new fragrance that’s hit the shelves from Juicy Couture and it’s their most openly gourmand fragrance to date: Viva La Juicy Sucré; “sucré” means « sweetened » in French…
” Sumptuous and feminine, the mouthwatering fragrance tempts even the most disciplined to live in the moment. Deny yourself nothing. “
The gourmand fruity-floral has top notes of Brazilian gardenia, mandarin and red currant; the scent segues into a heart of orange blossom, jasmine flower, peach nectar and almond cream; the base is rich like cake, batter, with notes of cocoa bean, sandalwood, whipped cream and vanilla extract.
To entice your tastebuds visually, the design of the flacon takes inspiration from a cupcake. If you ever dreamt of inhaling a pastry instead of eating it, here’s another opportunity to do it, guilt-free.
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.
And if you start to feel a little guilty for shelling out for that extravagant perfume you’ve had your eye on, there is a legitimate reason to back up that purchase.
For one thing, unlike most beauty products, perfumes don’t really have an expiration date (barring how quickly you go through a bottle, of course). Just be sure to store scents in cabinets away from direct exposure to sunlight or humid environments.
