These perfumes have to be my absolute most favorite scents! Both scents smell absolutely lovely and it’s such a convenience that Juicy Couture decided to combine the two to create this awesome duo end rollerball. On one end you have the classic Viva La Juicy and on the other, Viva La Juicy La Fleur. I’ve heard quite a lot about the Viva La Juicy scent but never really thought to try it until I received a sample of the La Fleur in my August Birchbox and fell completely in love with it!
It has a very light, feminine scent. As you can tell by the name the scent is more on the floral side. It’s formulated with a medley of wild berries, mandarin, gardenia petals, soft jasmine, vanilla, caramel and sandalwood. Sephora describes the scent as sheer, modern and addictive. I couldn’t agree more! It’s definitely not overpowering and the smell is sweet enough to entice anyone. La Fleur has become my favorite everyday scent!
The original Viva La Juicy is also quite the treat! It’s has a nice playful scent similar to La Fleur but with more of an edge. Sephora describes it as tantalizing, teasing and tempting. I think they’re pretty dead on with this one too! The scent is definitely more seductive, stronger and lingers a bit longer than La Fleur even though the formulation is a bit similar. Viva La Juicy is a nice medley of wild berries, mandarins, honeysuckle, gardenia, jasmine, amber, caramel, vanilla, sandalwood and praline. The scent does seem a bit floral but not as much as La Fleur. It’s a tad more sweet and definitely more sultry. I like to spray this on when I’m getting ready for a night out.
I love that both scents were included in this convenient rollerball and that it was soo cheap! For just $25 at Sephora you get a really nice amount of two lovely scents that you can throw in your purse no problem. The only con to this duo is that the scents don’t last very long. I get maybe 6-8 hours of wear before it starts to fade and I have to reapply. Otherwise, I think both scents are a treat to have in your fragrance arsenal and totally affordable. I totally recommend!
