Viva La Juicy La Fleur..

 Whilst perusing the displays in Debenhams, I couldn't help but stop and admire Juicy Couture's latest offering in the form of Viva la Juicy la Fleur. With a dresser brimming with perfumes, I could not justify purchasing a full bottle. Instead I opted for the roller-ball and lipgloss duo for the grand total of £9.99. Simple, yet convenient this duo is the perfect size to throw into my new handbag. 

The perfume
There's something truly special about perfume, with just one spritz, you can be transported back to many a happy memory, and the playful scent of Viva la Fleur does just that. The fresh smell reminds me of new beginnings and in particular makes me relive my first few weeks in University, when I first got with my boyfriend. Viva la Fleur truly is a beautiful feminine fragrance, with a blend of Mandarin, Berries, Waterlily, along with Honeysuckle, Gardenia Petals and Jasmine. In all honesty im very much a scent novice, so cannot specifically identify these individual notes, however what I can say is that it is floral yet fruity, fresh yet still sweet. In terms of longevity the scent lasts a reasonable time, but does disappear alot quicker than a lot of other perfumes that I own. 

The Lipgloss
Lets face it the perfume is the show stopper of this duo, so I didn't particularly hold much optimism for the lipgloss, however apart from a little stickiness I was pleasantly surprised. A pigmented medium pink with flecks of glitter running throughout, I actually quite like this shade. As for the scent, imagine delving into a bag of maoms and you would be pretty close, its definitely sweet and yummy.  

Have you tried Viva La Fleur La Juicy??
