Viva La Juicy - Solid Perfume

Following my Estée Lauder post, we all know I'm a Sensuous Gal, right? That doesn't mean I can't be swayed from time to time. Emporio for example or Aqua di Gio for the summer months. But, until recently, I hadn't the slightest inclination to venture to into Juicy territory. Loud packaging just puts me off. Right off. 

Now when someone wants to send me a sample of loud packaged gorgeousness, now that's another matter entirely. I received this little beauty a few weeks back from Debenhams. And I'm more than grateful to them for converting me to the waild side.

Its a heavy weight, gold compact, that would fit in the palm of your hand and comes in this really dinky bright pink satin case.

What do Juicy have to say about the scent, you ask?

'Viva La Juicy consists of refreshing wild berries and juicy mandarin with a sophisticated heart of honeysuckle, gardenia, and jasmine The base of amber, caramel, vanilla, sandalwood and praline provides a sexy feeling to this irresistible fragrance'

Sounds a little saccharin sweet, right? Wrong. Wrong-o.

The scent is subtle and long lasting. Honeysuckle is one of my all time favourite flowers and I can detect that more than any other note in this. I've been using this on and off for the past fortnight or so and it just makes me happy. I dab some on mah pulse points (Like a laydee) and it lasts the whole day through. Love.
