Perfume always makes me think of Fernando, the Billy Crystal SNL character.
Sometimes the bottle just looks so good, I don’t even care what is inside! Juicy Couture’s latest launch, Hollywood Royal ($95 for 5.0 bottle), certainly looks good. Such a gorgeous bottle! Just looking at it makes me feel all happy. This is red carpet, big stars, and huge fun.
Besides dancing a little jig when I saw the bottle, I was excited to try out the perfume because it has such interesting notes: candied apple, pear, gardenia, jasmine, cashmere wood, soft musk, vanilla and marshmallow. It sounds young, fun, and exciting. And it probably smells that way on some people…unfortunately, not on me. This did not mix well with my body chemistry, much to my dismay. On me it smells sharply floral with no relief in the drydown…I get no vanilla, no musk, nothing soft.
So the inside doesn’t work for me…but the outside still does! Body chemistry is a very funny thing, and I am quite sure this is an amazing fragrance for many. Try it out at the store – you can find it at Macy’s – and see if it works for you. I can assure you the fabulously glam packaging will at the very least make you look good…in fact, mah-velous! – Lisa
