There is so much that goes into getting ready for a night out, and each part of planning is as important as the next. When it comes to the finishing touch, I always opt for finding the perfect bag, but I also never leave home without a spritz of my favorite scent.

Viva la Juicy scent is an incredibly popular daytime option, and now there is the ideal evening counterpart, the sensual and bold Viva la Juicy Noir. We all have different scents that lure us in, and while our daytime go-tos may be light and fun, at night a captivating and daring scent is just what you need to elevate your overall aesthetic.


In addition to fragrance, Juicy Couture continues to evolve its handbag game, and if the Juicy Couture Rockstar Crossbody Bag is any indication, better bags are yet to come. The leather is incredibly supple yet thick, and the design immediately drew me in. Just the right amount of studding gives this design the oomph I look for when preparing for a night out. For summer, you don’t need to stick with black, and Cerulean Sky is a mixture of blue and green that’s bold but can also work as a neutral. In fact, I adore this bag, and the price is amazing – $228 via Juicy Couture.


As I’ve told you many times, what goes in the bag is just as important as the bag. My wallet and phone are no-brainers, but the other items are equally as important – from lipstick, to blush, to a fragrance rollerball so I can refresh my scent whenever I want. Luckily, Juicy Couture offers a dual rollerball featuring both Viva and new Viva la Juicy Noir, which means I can wear either fragrance any time I want. The new Viva la Juicy Noir is seductive and alluring, which is precisely what I want when I leave the house for an evening on the town. Whether it’s a night out with the girls or a date night, don’t leave home without a spray of the new scent, and remember to add the rollerball to your bag for touch ups.

    Never thought I’d see the day when Purse Blog writes a glowing review for and promotes Juicy Couture. I can smell more than just the Noir.

    Sponsored posts. Hate them so much.

      I can see Valentino, Balenciaga, Proenza Schouler, Chloe, and Coach takeoffs in this bag. And it does justice to none of them.
      The color I can get behind but that is about it. Sponsored posts take something
      away from the credibility of this site, which i otherwise love. :(

        My thoughts precisely! and a Gucci tassel on top of everything – what a joke…

        Totally agree. Although the words “Sponsored Post” appear at the bottom, the writing is very contrived. I know advertising is part of the site but this is too much.

    I can’t even SAY the name “Juicy Couture” without feeling like a giant d-bag. :(

    Awww, Megs, while I do agree that is a whole lot of handbag for only 200 bucks and Lord knows not everyone can afford Valentino rockstuds … I am baffled by you rooting for the smelly. Honestly – if we were to do a “what’s in Meg’s bag” – would the Noir actually be in it?

    I wonder if people would still hate it, if the post was about Chanel or Hermès. I like the bag, & i fail to see how this is “taking away from the credibility” of the site. It´s tastefuly done, & every fashionblog needs advertisers to keep on going so…
