Juicy Couture Peace Love and Juicy Couture

Are you a fan of Juicy Couture's fragrances? Do you like the sweet, gourmand, floral vibe that most of them have? Well get ready for a surprise. Their latest offering is totally different from what you are used to from this house. What comes to mind when you think of the swingin 60's? Marijuana aside, it was all about Peace, hope, freedom, new beginnings,experimenting with new concepts,the Beatles and of course hippies :) Juicy couture has captured that psychedelic era beautifully in this perfume.


 Juicy Couture describes it as: Celebrate the freedom of being both hippie and chic with this fragrance that brings alive the free-spirited, sixties-style vibe of Malibu! Drenched in floral accords, this juicy treasure is an aromatic revolution. It allows the wearer to savor the fusion of freshly cut blossoms soaked with wildly feminine wood harmonies. Give Peace, Love & Juicy Couture a chance!
The bottle features groovy turquoise gems, bohemian charms, and girly pom poms.
Peace love and juicy couture is a fresh green fragrance with a teeny bit of sweetness to it. I detect patchouli and hyacinth mixed in with lemons and something herby maybe it's the linden blossom.The florals in it are not too strong making it fresh, outdoorsy and almost unisex. It's the perfect perfume to get for people who hate perfumes if I make any sense.Or that tomboy friend who can't stand sweet girly scents. It reminds me of fresh cut grass mixed in with wet earth after the rain. How can we talk about the 60's and hippies and not mention patchouli. This perfume has a healthy dose of patchouli in it too and is a must for all Patchouli lovers. Unfortunately for me, I can't stand patchouli, so I rarely reach out for this perfume. But I think it's the perfect tribute to the 60s flower power generation.I do not get any sandalwood on my skin and the longevity is 8+ hours on me. I really like the falcon too, very boho chic and the pictures don't do it justice. The cute dogs come with a peace heart between them adorned with a crown this time. Very 60's baby. So get out there and embrace your inner hippie! Peace........

The thing the sixties did was to show us the possibilities and the responsibility that we all had. It wasn’t the answer. It just gave us a glimpse of the possibility – John Lennon

great review :) I love love loveee juicy couture!

catesewell said...

I always write Juicy Couture scents off because of the joggers they've created but when I smelt this - totally sold. It is really gorgeous and has made me want to look more at JC scents instead of being snobby about them x

♥ Sadie ♥ said...

Love the bottle <3 x

Meredith Jessica said...

So many great inspiration photos in this post! Saving!

Su said...

Great review :) I have Viva La Juicy which seems to be quite the opposite of this. I like Peace Love and Juicy too, though I have only tried it once. I like that it is floral and different. Bottle is great too!

wow so gorgeous!! I AM utterly in love with the bottle- the design is gorgeous. Lovely 60s hippie pics too!
Come follow my blog darling! xx

Pandora`s Box said...

@Fakhra: Glad you liked it Elf girl :)

@Rakhshan: Haha!Nice pun.This one is the opposite of viva if you test it with that in mind, you won't be disappointed.

@Shahtaj: Thanx for dropping by

@Nayabloves: Oh yes! Love the bottles they come in.

@Mania: Thank you :) it's always interesting how perfumes work worh different skin chemistry. I guess that's what makes them interesting.It's not sweet on me at all just very patchoulish.

@Iheartmexo:Thanks hon :)

@catesewell: Yes this one is very different than most of their creatrions. Let's not forget it's the perfumers who create scents not the brands. For instance this one was created by Rodrigo flores-Roux who also created Clinique happy,Donna Karen Black cashmere, John varvatos to name a few.He is so versatile with his creations. I'm glad you liked this one.

@Sadie: yes it's really pretty

@Meridith Jessica: Thank you. Glad you liked 'em

@Su: Yes those two are complete opposites maybe that's why so many people dislike this one. They were expecting another fruity floral.

@Cecylia: Thanks for dropping by :)Yes the bottle is gorgeous.
