Customer Love Notes: Long Live Juicy

Nerd alert: One of our favorite things to do is read the customer reviews in the Birchbox Shop. You all are an opinionated bunch—and we like it! We especially adore when you write about your favorite purchases. From time to time, we’ll be highlighting some of your extra sweet product love letters on the blog. 

Juicy Couture Viva la Juicy, a bold update to the original Juicy Couture fragrance, still incorporates the same floral bouquet as its predecessor, plus notes of creamy vanilla, rich caramel, and warm sandalwood. We feel completely feminine (and, truth be told, a little sassy) when we wear it. We’re also fans of the hefty glass bottle, which features sparkly gold charms and an oversized bow. Turns out, we’re not the only ones a little nutty for this fragrance. Check out what these Birchbox fans had to say: 

“I received this as a sample in my monthly Birchbox. I thought it smelled pretty darn good but I wasn’t expecting to get the reaction from my husband. He said, "Wow, you smell good. I really like that.” Later on, he called me at work and said it must have rubbed off on him cause the (great) smell was driving him crazy—ha!“— Jenn

"Since discovering Viva La Juicy, I haven’t wanted to use another fragrance. To me, it’s fun and light but still catches the attention of anyone who gets a whiff. I wear it everyday and I have yet to get tired of it."— Gigi708

"I can be quite picky when it comes to perfume but I absolutely love this scent. Wearing it makes me feel feminine and sexy. Perfect for day or night, it’s bold enough that others will notice it but not so strong that it will make people run away :). Viva La Juicy is definitely a new favorite of mine and I am so happy I got a sample in box so that I could discover this gem.” — Niki

To our beloved Youngjae congratulation for becoming an adult today. You’re officially an adult now (Korean age). I wish you a great year ahead and you will receive many flowers, perfume and a kiss ^^ I Love You my Youngjae-ah ~

In South Korea, the Monday of the third week of May is “coming-of-age day”. The legal age to become an adult in Korea is 20 (18/19 international age), so as the people born during that time frame have already become or will become that age, they are considered legal adults on Coming of Age Day. On that day, those entering adulthood are to receive three gifts: flowers, perfume and a kiss. And our beloved Youngjae is one of them.

I can’t wait to see you for the first time. I’ll be able to run up to you and wrap my arms around you. Spin you around like in one of those romance movies. Then when I look up I can see your beautiful face and hear your beautiful voice. This time your voice won’t be staticky and your smile not pixelated but instead you’re there in front of me. I can finally kiss you and let every emotion I haven’t been able to put into words go from my lips to yours so you know. I’ll be able to feel the shape of your body under my hands and softness of your skin. To be able to smell your smell instead of the perfume you spray the gifts you send me with. And at the end of the day I can fall asleep with you in my arms and yours wrapped around me. But most of all I won’t have to fall asleep to the sound of static. I’ll be able to fall asleep with my head on your chest listening to your heartbeat. I can’t wait for that day.
—  the day I first meet you
Ten is officially an adult now (Korean age).

In South Korea, ‘coming-of-age day’ or 'gwan rye’ (관례; 冠禮) is held on the Monday of the third week of May and performed by men and women turning 20 in the same year to signify their debut into adulthood as independent individuals. The legal age to become an adult in Korea is 20 (18/19 international age), so as the people born during that time frame have already become or will become that age, they are considered legal adults on Coming of Age Day. On that day, those entering adulthood are to receive three gifts: flowers, perfume and a kiss. The perfume implicates “Please remember me? and roses represent desire, passion, happiness, and beauty. Finally, a kiss means promise for eternal love.
