Lucky You by Lucky
Every Y2K tween had a glow up from Mudd to Lucky jeans at some point during adolescence. If you shudder while hearing the words “boho chic” it’s likely because of overexposure to this denim in 2002. Don’t worry, time heals all wounds but it can’t heal those pre-ripped jeans. While selling the low-rise flares that made every girl with a naturally high butt crack depressed, Lucky also launched Lucky You perfume in 2000.
Like most celebrities, Victoria’s Secret, and Bath & Body Works alike, Lucky capitalized on the commercially successful fruity floral trend. Lucky You smells like the lone spray strip left behind in the “pour femme” section of any Sephora. I.e. an amalgamation of every cheerful, shampooey, floral fragrance shilled out the past twenty years. It’s one of those throw on to cover the stench of your sports bra perfumes and that’s okay! It smells perfectly wearable and completely unchallenging. Given the climate of the impending Y2K mainframe disaster I’m sure it was also comforting to those who just wanted to smell freshly showered.
Notes include grapefruit, water hyacinth and green leaves; middle notes are peony, star jasmine and blue poppy; base notes are musk, sandalwood and amber. In real life you will smell like Hilary Duff at the premier of The Lizzie McGuire Movie. Wholesome and literally shellacked into boho chic denim.
