Juicy Couture rollerballs, my new handbag must!

Evening girls,

Well it's been a while since I've posted, or it feels like it anyway! I've been really ill the last couple of days and just really haven't felt like sitting in front of a computer, I'm not actually better yet but I felt like it was getting too long without a post!

So a couple of days ago I got a set of 3 Juicy Couture 7.5ml rollerballs and I LOVE them! I have to admit I bought them without smelling them first which I don't normally do but I'd heard a lot of good things about them so I thought I'd take a chance and the gamble paid off.

Viva La Juicy
Described as having top notes of wild berries and juicy mandarin tempered with honeysuckle, gardenia, and jasmine. Underlying it all are warm tones of amber, caramel, vanilla, sandalwood, and praline.
This one is my favourite out of the three!

Juicy Couture
Featuring top notes of watermelon, mandarin, and passion fruit combined with the freshness of bright marigold and green apple, lightened by a splash of water hyacinth and crushed leaves. Deeper notes of wild rose with sophisticated princess lily and creamy tuberose undertones. Base notes of caramel créme brulé and vanilla meld with elegant precious woods and patchouli.

Couture Couture
Top notes of pink grape accord with orange flower and middle notes of blushed plum, honeysuckle and base notes of sandalwood this perfume inspires to show off,  be loud, talk to strangers, make a scene, and love life!

What I was really surprised with was how strong the scents are and how long they last. I have quite a few perfumes (Will do a post on my collection soon!) and most of the time I notice the smell for a while but then after a couple of hours I can't smell it anymore. With these I put a really small amount on my wrist and on my neck in the morning and I mean a really small a swipe on each and I immediately noticed how strong the scent was. Later on that night I could still smell it pretty much just as strong as when I first put it on!

Another thing I like about these is the size, being 7.5ml they are so easy to pop in your bag or clutch and you always have something with you. As the scent is so strong this also makes me think it's really good value for money and will last a long time because you don't have to use very much.
It's my first ever perfume in a rollerball and I'm liking very much! You can pinpoint exactly where you want it instead of it spraying everywhere!!

So if you are thinking of buying a Juicy Couture perfume and aren't sure whether to go for it I would definitely recommend them, they're lush! I think I want a smell of their new one now - Peace, Love, Juicy Couture.

Hope you are all having a good week so far, it's not long until the weekend girls!


  1. I really want these,where did u get them from?x

  2. I got mine from an ebay seller in america or you can get them from Nordstrom which ships to the uk. I had a quick look on google and it doesn't look like they're widely available here yet but I bet they will be. I'm thinking of buying the regular size bottle anyway as I like them so much! :) x

  3. awesome review! I've been considering investing in a new perfume for a while now cos i've been wearing the same old scent for ages so might give these a try

    Hope you feel back to your old self soon! :)

  4. Yum! You just reminded me that I need to go purchase another one of these! My favorite was the Viva La Juicy for sure! I got compliments everywhere I went with that scent! Off to Ebay I go!
