I've never been one for the typical flowery, girly scent. If it smells like an explosion of flowers, you can bet I'm running the opposite direction. In the spring and summer, I'm drawn to a clean, I-just-got-out-of-the-shower sort of smell or bright scents with notes of citrus. In the fall and winter, I'm all about the sexy musks. The new Juicy Couture "Gold Couture" fragrance hit the nail on the head for me and I know I'll be spritzing this baby all over my sexy post-partum bod for the rest of the colder months (if it ever decides to get cold in Florida).
I personally think this is a huge leap for the brand concerning their line of fragrances. They just always seemed to air on the more girly and whimsical side to me. It's really nice to see them delve into a richer, sexier scent that's alluring and sultry instead of charming. The fragrance has a lavish amber and melted caramel/vanilla sort of deepness to its' bouquet with a refreshing note of berries. I can also smell just a hint of jasmine and sandalwood that makes this perfume intense and intoxicating.
Juicy Couture did a really great job matching the scent to the look and feel of the bottle. The gold and deep honey colors of the glass bottle almost hint to the rich and indulgent scent inside. I like how they created a bottle that looks mature and glamorous but with a touch of feminine flair. What girl doesn't love pink, pretty cursive script and lacy bows? While a bow in itself is girly you can really tell they did some thinking there by choosing a black, almost fishnet appearance. I'm probably overanalyzing now but I just love when you can tell a great deal of consideration and thought went into the production of something. I just think its a great combination of sexy, glamorous, edgy and girly. Another point goes to the Juicy Couture house (heyyy Harry Potter fans) simply because I can use this as a show piece on my vanity as well. I keep it in a mirrored tray along with my other perfumes and this is definitely the show stopper. Packaging really is a selling point for many girls and so it's wonderful when beauty products enter the two worlds of purpose and decor piece. Maybe it's my advertising major talking, but it's really refreshing to see a brand understand the mind of their consumer.
What is your signature scent for this fall?
