Malibu Surf Juicy Couture Perfume for Women Review (2016):
Juicy Couture launched the Malibu Collection in 2013 keeping in mind the free-spirited, casual, yet glamorous essence of Los Angeles. With the addition of Malibu Surf, the limited edition Malibu collection is officially a holy trinity now and supersedes the previous two offerings, the Juicy Couture Malibu and La La Malibu, which were both known for their exotic tropical and fruity tones.
Capturing the radiant, fascinating and confident attitude of Malibu Surfrider beach in Los Angeles, Malibu Surf Couture is an adventurous, appealing, and unforgettable scent guaranteed to captivate your senses during those sunny day outs on the beach turf. One can seldom go wrong with any Juicy Couture perfume, and Malibu Surf is another testament to that fact; its summery scent full of scrumptious red apple, tangy mandarin, and juicy watermelon fruity tones blends sensationally with its floral mid-tones comprising of Jasmine and mesmerizing Plumeria to bring a rush of excitement that makes you dive right in the city of angels with its everlasting sunshine and swaying palm trees. The dry down with its lingering musk and soft vanilla provides the perfect finale.
Malibu Surf Juicy Couture Scent Descriptions:
Top Notes – Red Apple, Strawberry, Watermelon and Mandarin Orange
Heart Notes – Plumeria, Jasmine, and Tuberose
Base Notes – Musk, Amberwood, Driftwood and Vanilla
My Experience With This Perfume:
The fragrance gets me “Cali Dreaming” and smells like fresh air with palm trees blowing in the wind, and a lovely, clean smell akin to being out at the beach. It smells sweet and floral, not too strong or overpowering, but the real reason I love this is when I wear this on, I just start beaming with a radiant smile because the fragrance hits all the right notes and makes me feel pretty and feminine. I would definitely recommend this spray to anyone looking for a mellower blend of floral and tropical tones together.
Packaging: The packaging is on point and attractive just like all other Juicy Couture fragrance products. The box is fun and brightly adorned with palm trees in a nice turquoise neon shade. The bottle as such is not as glamorous; it is more “pretty bling” and pop/punk youth rather than classic Juicy Couture lines. The silver top stays on tight and has a big plastic green heart in the center with the Juicy Couture motif slapped across its face on a silver strip.
Sillage and Longevity: The sillage is extremely heavy and it easily projects across a big room while longevity is extremely potent with a good 9-10 hours on a spray.
Let me quickly summarize the likes and dislikes for this perfume:
- Great bottle and packaging to spruce up your dresser
- Musky and Seductive
- Very long lasting
- Fruity and floral tones not for everyone
Overall Rating – 4/5
Another youthful offering from Juicy Couture , this is arguably the best of the fun trio from the Malibu collection. Very fresh and perky, you would love to spritz this away on sunny days, when you’re laid back and feeling girly.
