Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy La Fleur Review & Photos

Viva La Juicy has always been on the top of my fragrance list ever since it was released back in 2008, so I was excited to hear that Juicy Couture had bought out a sister perfume in the Viva La Juicy line named Viva La Juicy La Fleur. This beautiful fragrance looks very similar to its first perfume but with a different bottle shape and a fresher feel.

La Fleur is an Eau De Toilette which comes in a 40ml, 75ml and 150ml, they are also doing a beautiful Christmas set which includes a 40ml Eau De Toilette and a dual ended roller ball which has 5ml of the original Viva La Juicy and 5ml of the Viva La Juicy La Fleur. The Roller Ball is also sold separately.

Check out the Viva La Juicy & Viva La Juicy La Fleur Campaign Video Here from Juicy Couture.
The Fragrance is described fully on the Juicy Couture website, where you can also buy the fragrance!,default,pg.html
I also found this perfume at most good department stores, perfume shops and online retailers.

Like all the other Juicy Perfume's this is beautifully packaged in a Pink floral print box, with Gold writing. The Perfume itself has the signature Viva La Juicy Pink Ribbon Bow and the gold J and Couture name chain. Inside the bottle is has a stunning Rose print which you can see through the bottle.
This a spray applicator, with a gorgeous jewelled lid to preserve the perfume.

This is a beautiful fresh scent perfect for everyday, I can smell the fresh gardenia petals and the Waterlily Top Note. This is described as a romantic fragrance which I sense from the musky Sandalwood Base note which you get in the first fragrance mixed with the innocence of the fresh floral accents.
As this is an Eau De Toilette the scent didn't last as long for me as an Eau De Parfum, it had worn off by 12.30pm so I re-sprayed this again and the scent did ware but I could smell a slight scent at the end of the evening, so it would be great if they could do a Lotion to compliment the fragrance and help the scent last longer throughout the day.

The 75ml pictured is around the £45 mark as this varies depending on where you shop as I also found the cheapest to be £39.10 for the 75ml, so it pays to shop around. The 40ml you is priced on average of about £33 and the 150ml is about £60.
I adore this perfume as I do the original, but I do think Perfume is a personal thing so everyone has different scents they prefer whether it be floral, fruity or a deep musk. But if you like the Original Viva La Juicy then you're sure to like this lighter version of it which is a perfect daytime fragrance.
I would love to see Juicy introduce a shower Gel and Lotion to the range too, to maximise the La Fleur experience.

I award the Viva La Juicy La Fleur 4.9 out of 5

December Beauty and Nail Favourites featuring MAC Rebel & Ciate

I don't know about you but I am not sure what happened to December this year, it came and went in a flash and now another year is upon us filled with excitement, goals & aspirations! 
I do hope you had a lovely December and I wish you all a healthy, happy New Year! 

1. Ciate Minimanimonth - This was a gift from my boyfriend, I had pined over this for a couple of years as it looked so amazing and it didn't let me down defiantly my number one favourite from December! 
Each day I was so excited to wake up to open this advent calendar to find a beautiful mini nail polish! I have a full review and swatches on this advent calendar coming next week on my Blog, so keep posted.

2. The Body Shop Cranberry Joy Body Butter - I love getting into the Christmas spirit and have to have everything festive, hand creams, lotions, candles the lot, so I was excited to see these festive body butters from The Body Shop as I am a big fan of the normal collection. 
This smells deliciously crisp and festive, but I do think this scent is not for everyone as it is quite distinctive. 

3 & 5. MAC Lipstick in Rebel & MAC Lip Pencil in Vino - I've been getting braver recently with my lipstick choices as I've always loved a dark burgandy lip but never had the confidence to pull it off. I saw this lipstick on the beautiful Casey Holmes on YouTube, she made it look so easy to wear with her dark hair, so she finally inspired me to give it a go! I love pairing it with MAC Lip Pencil in Vino.

4. Balmi Lipbalm in Coconut - This has been my saviour throughout the winter months and has been the only thing that has moisturised my lips!  

6. MAC Blusher in Dollymix - I've had this blush for a couple of years now and dipped in and out of using it until this month I had an obsession with deep reds & pinks so I rediscovered this blush which leaves your cheeks looking flushed with a pop of deep pink sheeny wash of colour.
