Viva La Juicy Rose description
Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Rose is a fresh, dainty ballerina’s twirl of a scent, full of icy pink roses, citrus, and a delicate white floral powder. If a pink tutu had a fragrance, this would be it.
There is an air of early morning innocence about this scent. First, the nose is tickled by a sheer wash of peppery green roses, their petals plucked a hair too soon at dawn, and sharpened at the edges with lemon and orange zest.
Then the scent is bathed in a brilliant white luminescence, partly a trail of pear ester illuminating everything with its piercing juiciness, and a fresh green bloom of jasmine, with a papery, pressed-linen facet. It is a clean and sparkling heart, the green rose petals infused with the radiance of the white pear and jasmine.
Viva La Juicy Rose is also slightly powdery and earthy at the same time, from the large dose of orris (iris), which lends the fragrance a cool, silvery elegance. In fact, scents with lots of iris often smell like suede, and that’s the case here. Viva La Juicy Rose smells enticingly like a long gray glove made out of the finest Florentine suede.
This is a very easy to wear rose, because not only is the rose fresh, but all the materials supporting it are similarly bright and feather-soft. There is a streak of Ambroxan in the base, an ambergris-like material that infuses the structure with a salty, ambery radiance. This note lifts the rose and other florals, diffusing them until they are weightless. The warmth of cinnamon-tinged, powdery benzoin resin gives the scent a delightful powdered sugar effect that matches the elegance of the orris note.
Viva La Juicy Rose is an ethereally light scent that we predict will be a roaring success with ladies who find rose too heavy or sweet to wear on its own. This scent leavens the heft of the rose by framing it against a plethora of other soft, powdery accents, rendering it as airy as a ballerina’s tutu.
