Viva La Guilty Pleasure!

I like to tell myself that my tastes have matured. In some ways they totally have, in clothes, for example. In fragrance too, but only to an extent. Whilst I love Jo Malone, Tom Ford & Elie Saab, I'm still a little prone to a spritz of a Britney perfume every now and then. I am not ashamed of this ;-) sometimes the occassion just calls for it!

Another favourite, but total guilty pleasure perfume of mine is one I was kindly given for christmas. It had been on my wishlist for a long time and whenever I was in a fragrance dep and I saw it's big pink bow on the shelf I would be sure to have a spritz. There's something so unashamedly gorgeous about this scent, it's sweet but not over powering, and feminine without being too floral. It's youthful, cheeky and fresh. And while I wouldn't be seen dead in a pink velour tracksuit with 'Juicy' embroidered across the butt, I would quite happily bathe in this stuff!

Juicy Couture 'Viva La Juicy' has top notes of Wild Berries, middle notes of Honeysuckle and Jasmine, and it settles down to base notes of Vanilla, Caramel and Amber. It seems to last fairly well on my skin but it is more the initial spritz of this that fills me with happiness. If you've been reading my blog a while you'll know how happy perfume makes me!

Yes, not the most sophisticated of fragrances, but one I love regardless. Do you have any guilty pleasure perfumes?


  1. This perfume seems really popular, I think it's about time I tried it.

  2. I love this perfume! Had it for Christmas last year and I have repurchased it again since then. I don't think it's too tacky at all - there is much worse out there haha. My guilty pleasure scent-wise is definitely Britney Spears or Paris Hilton perfumes as they're just all so sweet xx

  3. I really like Viva La Juicy on other people but on myself it kickstarts a migraine. I'm really funny with scent but my guilty pleasures are Beyonce Pulse and Jen Anistons perfume (smells exactly like Philosophy Amazing Grace) I'm also partial to a bit of Britney. :)

  4. This is one of my favorite perfumes! I also like the new one (Viva La Juicy La Fleur) it smells like a lighter version of this one. Perfumes are usually one of those things that everyone wants but no one wants to buy for themselves, but when I looked this perfume up on Amazon they had the 3.4oz size for only 50 bucks!

  5. I really want to try this, I've never smelled it before but I've heard so many amazing things about it recently!
