Scent #5: Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture


{Vanellope Von Schweetz of Wreck-It Ralph}

The fifth and final scent in my Fragrance Sampler for Her from Sephora is “Viva La Juicy” by Juicy Couture.

The Juicy people describe their scent this way: “Creamy caramel meets glimmering fruits in this delightful scent.”

It does have a Candyland quality to it. Which is I guess why it smells like something Vanellope Von Schweetz, the punky orphanette in the Disney movie Wreck-It Ralph, would wear.

In the movie, Vanellope (scratchily voiced by Sarah Silverman) is a wannabe race car driver in an arcade video game called Sugar Rush. The object of the game is to build your own bitchin’ car then race it through a candy-colored landscape of gumdrop trees, chocolate swamps, sour balls and fruit chews. All the other girl-racers are mean to her; she’s considered a “glitch” in her game.

Ralph is the bad guy from a neighboring game who’s tired of being the bad guy, so he goes rogue. He leaves his own game to wander around in other games and try to win something, for once in his sorry life. As a perpetual screw-up, he hits it off with the ostracized Vanellope and… well, it’s a cute movie. Let’s get back on track.

Viva La Juicy is a little girl’s scent. It’s sweet and bright like a cherry Starburst and I would let Greta wear it tomorrow. It smells like the fruity, cheerleader perfume she douses herself in when I drag her into Express at the mall.

So that’s all five scents, worn and reviewed. I’ll announce my Rollerball pick soon…
