Embarrassed? Why is that? I really dislike the brand Juicy Couture mainly because they make overpriced garments for hipless teenie boppers. I don’t have anything against hipless teenie boppers. It is just that I am a grown women. And as they say in the South “a grown ass woman”. This means that I need to dress so without being ashamed of my hips and all the other curves that I just so happen to own. Juicy Couture will occasionally have a few cute dresses or nice prints but I can’t stop thinking of their velour or terry track suit look with words like “juicy” on the bum. This bothers me. Nobody, even hipless teens, looks good in a hot pink terry sweatpant with old English letters on the backside. It is the most unflattering look ever. That being said, and I should add that I do own a few Juicy items, such as nice terry hoodies that I have picked up at Nordstrom Rack with a great price tag, I find Juicy clothing rather dull or even worse unflattering and trashy. So why should I be ashamed of completely loving the original EDP? Well, because it is made by Juicy Couture. Shallow, I know. But, it is a really popular fragrance by a really popular company. But, I must confess that I have loved it since it’s first day of launching, what was that 2 years ago?! Just like I try to keep my closet gothness hidden, I’ve tried to keep my love of Juicy EDP in the closet. I had a friend that worked for the launching campaign. He gave me a bazillion samples because he understood that I couldn’t possibly purchase after dogging all the rich mall rats that sported the letters on the ass look making them look at least 25 pounds heavier under the bellybutton. I would wear the fragrance. People would ask me what I was wearing and I would lie through my teeth that I was wearing something else or merely “a lady never reveals such”. Sick, but that is why I must confess. Years have passed and I am down to the last few sprays of a sample spray vial. The time has come to order it online, grow up, and admit that I like a very popular fruity floral. I must also come to terms that it is OK and that I am no less of a glamazon and adult women for liking this fragrance. I can’t really explain my love for it. I must admit that I did love the initial add campaign with the huge haired Antoinette ladies with a punky attitude and the giant sized animals. It was genius. And I do live in that type of fantasy and wear big hair. I love that at first spritz it is loud and really fruity. It is a super synthetic and sweet watermelon and apple like a Pixie Stick but thank God that it smells of a loud tuberose bouquet on me. It is super floral, super girly and unlike my other tuberose scents not “old”. It is a wonderful new take on such a hard to wear and crude floral.  It is a sweet tuberose but it isn’t very vanilla-ish, at least on me. It is a “loud” scent and the original ad campaign imagery perfectly sums it up. It is super ladylike with a bit of a young and mall rat-ish edge. My husband loves it but he has a thing for tuberose in incarnation. I have smelled many mainstream fruity florals but none are as interesting as this one. And the bottle is really cute. And it wears for hours, the entire day on me. And there are lots of cute “extras”. Has anyone tried the shampoo or conditioner? Please share. I would love to try those. Especially since I am now unashamed of loving Juicy Couture EDP. It can be purchased at fragrancenet.com. and beauty.com.
