The Scent Of A Woman…
It’s a known fact that scent alone can evoke vivid memories, instantly transporting you to a person or place of which that scent is tied to. Truth be told, I’m probably better with scents than I am names (perhaps this is why I’m slightly obsessed with perfume. Of course it could be that every girl is just as infatuated).
Very recently I received a few new perfume releases, which I’m sure everyone can associate with at least one person they know, or perhaps associate the scent with a time or place in which that perfume has imprinted its memory. One of these perfumes I received is celebrating 25 years, while the others have new, even more intoxicating twists added to an already ‘tried and true’ base. Introducing – VIVA LA JUICY GOLD COUTURE, UNTOLD ABSOLU & RED DOOR 25 EAU DE PARFUM…
VIVA LA JUICY GOLD COUTURE
Since the launch of VIVA LA JUICY in 2008, the iconic scent has given rise to a number of luxurious sister scents, first with the release of the sheer and romantic VIVA LA JUICY LA FLEUR, then VIVA LA JUICY NOIR, the perfect scent for a night out. Now, Juicy Couture presents VIVA LA JUICY GOLD COUTURE, the over-the-top, decadent rendition of VIVA LA JUICY that gives the girl who lusts for luxury the couture indulgence she craves.
Decadent, indulgent and intoxicating, VIVA LA JUICY GOLD COUTURE is as luxurious as it sounds. The opulent fragrance draws inspiration from the always runway-ready VIVA LA JUICY muse.

The sensuous fragrance isn’t just the finishing touch on an outfit – it’s what turns her haute look into couture. With a captivating scent, Viva’s muse reminds us all that we never need an excuse for couture.
VIVA LA JUICY GOLD COUTURE teases with lush wild berry notes and moves to a sultry mix of golden amber and melted caramel. Hints of tempting wild berry open the fragrance, capturing the femininity behind the always glamorous VIVA LA JUICY GOLD COUTURE girl. Voluptuous and irresistible at heart, a delicate kiss of honeysuckle combines with sultry jasmine sambac notes to create a captivating fragrant bouquet. Golden amber, melted caramel, vanilla elixir and sandalwood fuse together, bringing radiant warmth and an unforgettable finish to the scent.
