Peace, Love and Juicy Couture is the brand new Juicy perfume released this year. It’s got a hippie flare to it that makes it as cute as original Juicy Couture and Viva la Juicy. But that could just be the bottles talking. Did I mention I’m coming around to loving those bottles?
In Bottle: Green with a capital G. Peace, Love and Juicy Couture smells like the rind of a lemon mixed with various green notes and what I swear is a beautifully done iris.
Applied: Initial greenness leads the way with that nice lemon lime scent. This isn’t juice, it’s rind we’re talking about here. Sharp, green, fresh, crisp rind that envelops the opening and slowly fades into the mid-stage where Peace, Love and Juicy Couture turns to a bright, happy green floral with more emphasis on the hyacinth with a little punctuation on the iris. The lindem blossoms give this fragrance a nice, feathery softness to it. The green floral quality of this fragrance reminds me of Chanel Cristalle. That crisp, spring-like scent that lifts spirits. After having spring in autumn, Peace, Love and Juicy Couture splashes up the soft linden blossoms and dries into a very slightly earthy and woodsy patchouli.
Extra: I don’t think I give Juicy Couture enough of a chance when it comes to some of their fragrances. I’m not a fan of their apparel but Juicy Couture, Peace, Love and Juicy Couture, as well as Viva la Juicy are very well done scents.
Design: Bottled in a similar fashion as Juicy Couture and Viva la Juicy. Peace, Love and Juicy Couture features different decorative elements while keeping the same basic bottle concept. Dangling from the neck of this perfume bottle are two cute and colorful tassels.
Fragrance Family: Fresh Earthy
Notes: Lemon tree blossom, hyacinth, apple accord, black currant , sambac jasmine absolute, star magnolia, Malibu poppy, honeysuckle, linden blossom, orris extract, patchouli flower, musk.
This fragrance is clearly inspired by the 60s but I don’t smell the 60s in this scent aside from that slightly earthy patchouli. The lasting power in this fragrance is unremarkable as it is quite a quick fader.

You seem to know so much about perfumes, I am wondering if you could help me? have a hard time finding a perfume that smells nice on me. The only fragrance I ever got a compliment on was Safari by Ralph Lauren. Most others small like I fell in a garbage can. I have been told my body chemistry changes the scent. Are there perfumes out there that have a similar scent as Safari? Thanks for any help you can give me.
Hi Magsllamas. I haven’t tried Safari yet, but from a few impressions I got from it, have you tried Guerlain’s Vol de Nuit? Another option might be the original Miss Dior (NOT to be confused with Miss Dior Cherie or the present-day “Miss Dior” which smells completely different), If you’d prefer something a little more accessible and easier to find, give Chanel No. 19 a try.
