How Juicy Couture Fragrance Got Me My Job at Birchbox

I’ve always been a Juicy girl. I started wearing their scents in high school, and still wear them to this day. Every time I spritz one on, I think of happy memories, like attending high school hockey games (a big part of growing up in Buffalo!) and summer weekends with friends after moving to New York for college. I even have Juicy Couture’s winning collection of fragrances to thank for my job at Birchbox. OK, I may be overstating things juuuuust a bit. But, well, let me explain.

In my quest to score an interview at Birchbox, I decided to snail-mail my resume to the Birchbox HQ, and figured I needed something extra to get me noticed amid a sea of applicants. Just before I carefully slid my application into the envelope, I gave it a quick spritz of Juicy (à la Elle Woods) for good luck. (Editor’s note: At any other company, this move could backfire big time. Luckily, the Birchbox office is full of fellow Juicy lovers.) And wouldn’t you know it? The manager who interviewed me worked directly with Juicy Couture!

As you can tell, my ploy worked—and to my delight ever since, I’ve been pegged as Birchbox’s official go-to source for all things Juicy Couture. At any given moment, my desk is crowded with at least three different Juicy Couture fragrances and I always keep a sample of the brand’s latest in my purse. This month, I’m especially excited to try the brand-new Couture La La Malibu.

Inspired by the laid-back, beachy hot spot just up the coast from Los Angeles, the scent features a blend of mandarin notes accented with pink sugar. And the pretty frosted-glass bottle will make the perfect addition to the ever-growing Juicy Couture collection occupying my desk. (I swear, the bottles help keep me productive!)

While I’d love to keep Couture La La Malibu all to myself, I’m happy to announce that Birchbox is all about sharing: Some of our subscribers will be receiving a sample of this new scent in their February Birchboxes!
