Fragrance is definitely a lifestyle necessity I’m passionate about, ingrained in me by my mother. I wear up to 4 fragrances at a time which I layer according to their notes, strength and type.
One of those fragrances, is Viva La Juicy or it’s sister Viva La Juicy Rosé, a staple in my every day layering choices.
So when iconic LA fashion brand Juicy Couture told me about 2 new additions: Royal Rose and Majestic Woods, you can imagine my intrigue and excitement. Would they have oud in it ?? Would they be balanced fragrances or heavy ? Would the 2 new fragrances be spin off’s to the Viva’s??
I was happy to discover the two scents are from the new sumptuous Regal Collection, which thought it only fitting to have its global launch in Dubai.
I was invited to host the event for the launch of the premium oriental scents – that are inspired by exotic lands and fairy tales – I was pretty psyched, and couldn’t wait to try the new fragrances.
What is the Regal Collection?
The Regal Collection transports the Juicy Girl to a mysterious world of her infinite imagination. The uplifting femininity of Royal Rose inspires her to dream bigger and deeper than ever, while the intoxicatingMajestic Woods envelops her and those around her with warmth and sensuality. The distinctly memorable scents of Royal Rose and Majestic Woods are the keys to an exquisite journey through space and time into a mystical world where anything is possible.
“My inspiration was to showcase another facet of Juicy Couture with elements of dark sensuality and true luxury. This Regal Collection presents a new side of the Juicy Couture fragrance portfolio: a fairytale at dusk and an expansive journey across space and time. I wanted to create scents that transported the wearer to these places of imagination, sensuality and depth.” –Honorine Blanc, Master Perfumer at Firmenich
THE FRAGRANCE: ROYAL ROSE
Luxurious and elegant, Royal Rose brings together velvet-like floralcy and the most premium notes for a scent as uplifting and deep as it is regal. The perfume is made of Soft Rose, Dynamic Incense and silky Suede with Sandalwood, Amber and a touch of Musk. This enigmatic bouquet of feminine and bold notes inspires the wearer to harness her inner queen.
THE FRAGRANCE: MAJESTIC WOODS
This enticing, bold scent brings together gorgeous ambers and dry woods to create a powerful fragrance, fit for royalty. The perfume is made of Sweet Tonka mixes with Rich Praline, Musky Ambrox and Warm Amber create an earthy combination that adds mystery and depth and Titular Majestic Woods with Patchouli for an intoxicating scent. Captivating and provocative, Majestic Woods empowers and emboldens any woman who wears it.
THE DESIGN OF THE BOTTLE
Like the rarest treasure of all the lands, the new Regal Collection bottle stands on a grand pedestal. The golden shield-shaped charms around the nape of the classic bottle add majestic touches while coils of silken rope immediately glisten in pink and golden amber hues. An architectural, jewel-shaped stopper completes the premium design.
The soft-touch black packaging embossed with the color of each fragrance creates drama and mystery, and the Juicy Couture crest announces the heritage of each fragrance to all who see it. While the scents stand out from all the rest of the Juicy Couture Fragrances, they give a nod to the Juicy Couture DNA of pink, gold, and adventure.
The event was a major success, held at Vii Lounge, the leaf walls transformed into a garden of roses and all the ladies were given flower crowns ❤️
Of the two fragrances, I represented Royal Rose and my co host Shereen Mitawalli represented Majestic Wood.
The evening concluded with entertainment from a belly dancer and Arabian music.
When fragrances attempt to go oriental/Arabian you don’t know what to expect. I am happy to say I was pleasantly surprised , both scored him high in my books, and as a duo complement each other very well. It’s the right amount of oud, noticeable but not offensive and easy to layer. Two thumbs up !
