Fragrance: Juicy Couture Hollywood Royal

fragrance: juicy couture hollywood royal on

I love Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy so I had high hopes for Hollywood Royal. This one makes a huge first impression–the bottle is irresistible. Everything about the design spells out glam, from the glittery flacon to the star studded body. And I’m happy to report that it doesn’t disappoint!

This fragrance put me on a new experience when I first wore it because of its fruity woody composition. I haven’t come across a fruity woody fragrance before and didn’t think it existed, but it does. Uniquely and delightfully so! The notes of Hollywood Royal start out with pomelo and pear, which then dries down to a woody musk with faint remnants of the opening fruit scents. In between is a quick white floral middle note. The fragrance isn’t strong, but isn’t weak either. Longevity-wise, it lasts moderately long.

Even though I’ve mentioned that the fruity woody combo felt new to me, this new addition fits well in the Juicy Couture fragrance family. It’s feminine and young. And the bottle is a stunner. I imagine the warm musk will suit the upcoming cold weather really well. I’m so tempted to get the Rollerball Duo (Hollywood Royal/Viva La Juicy)!
