I Love Juicy Couture description
Are you a Sex and the City fan? If so, you’ll surely remember the cocktail that was so beloved of the girls, the bright green Appletini. A very dry martini made with apple liquor instead of gin, the Appletini manages to be lusciously fruity and bone-dry at the same time.
Juicy Couture’s I Love Juicy Couture smells delightfully like an Appletini poured over dry ice and patchouli. It smells wonderfully clean and invigorating, with a fruity tang that lingers all night.
I Love Juicy Couture starts off with a curl of mandarin peel perched over juicy, shredded green apple and little sour pops of redcurrant. Despite the mention of taffy apples in the notes, the apple note is fresh and tart, with a musky edge that underlines its essential briskness.
The fruit notes fit smoothly over a mélange of clean, soapy patchouli enlivened with hints of crisp white jasmine, lily, and honeysuckle. The patchouli and the fruit give the scent a lovely balance of youthful sweetness and grown-up earthiness.
The patchouli and musk are both diffuse and light, with a texture that feels like whipped air. Yet the sweet florals and the crisp fruit keep the scent juicy. A touch of dry amber in the base wraps everything up in a resinous warmth, like the crackle of smoking woods on a campfire.
I Love Juicy Couture is gently sexy in a clean, all-American way on the skin. It plays on both the Egyptian musk oil and fruitchouli themes so popular in modern perfumery, but gives us something new and exciting with its apple peel freshness. The end result is a “my-skin-but-better” scent that amplifies the fresh glow of one’s own natural scent. It’s sexy in a cool, tomboyish way that’s eternally chic.
