I am pretty late to hop on the Juicy Couture perfume train, but after smelling Couture Couture and Peace, Love, and Juicy Couture, I completely understand why the line is as popular as it is. The bottles are fabulous (they’re always decked out to the maximum and completely over the top) and the juice is divine and unique. After trying a few, Couture, Couture is my favourite of the bunch by far. If you’re looking for a fun, sultry, day-to-night perfume, this is one you are going to want to try.
Couture, Couture is a glittering white floral with juicy citrus and plum notes, which add a lively, fruity feel to the scent. The amber, vanilla and woods in the base don’t stand out too much but they do add a lovely creaminess to the white bouquet. Although this scent is fairly multifaceted, the notes that really take centre stage are the orange blossom, jasmine, and plum. It is very much a white floral perfume but the plum has a very grape-like smell that pairs beautifully with the orange blossom, a flower that has always smelled a bit fruity to me. There’s something about this scent that reminds me of something I have smelled before as a child but I can’t put my finger on. The dark plum accord also reminds me of the juicy Concord grapes my grandpa used to grow which makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside when I wear it.
Although it’s a very girly perfume, don’t mistake it for being prim and proper. It’s got a sexy edge because of the amber, vanilla and plum. The grapefruit and orange in the top give it a bit of a kick from the get go as well. This is a sparkling, head turning scent that lasts all day, from the moment you put it on in the morning to well into the evening. Like a true couture gown, Couture, Couture is a perfume you wear when you want to grab people’s attention and make a stunning entrance.
