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?
