    I've thought the same thing about the word performance.I think that is also a fairly modern term when it comes to perfumes and colognes.I'm guilty of sometimes using it myself but no longer.In my opinion the old ways of describing things are the best.The modern ways sound ridiculous.They are not clever or original sounding,just stupid.

    It's a slippery slope:

    frag...fume...juice...beast mode...daily driver...panty dropper

    I think beast mode,panty dropper and daily driver are even worse or just as bad as juice.

    From this point on, no more descriptive words and/or synonyms.

    Lets look at some of the words/terms

    Juice - maybe just a way to express a perfume with fruity notes such as lychee, peach etc. until it has fallen into regular use in the perfume lexicon.

    Fume - occasionally short for perfume as in ‘fume or as it is a root in several languages such as French, Italian, Greek - meaning smoke, to smoke, to fragrance with smoke. It may seem immature or not fit for purpose but its entirely valid.

    Panty dropper - to drop panties. As in the juice was so wonderful the person would as thoug under some mysterious spell spontaneously lose control of their pantaloons.
    The last one isn’t a term I personally like but you know what, if it allows a couple of guys at a bar to have a conversation and bond about a fragrance without smashing each others heads in then live and let live I say.

    Language evolves in such ways. Language needs room to move and change otherwise it becomes stagnant and fusty.

    Speaking properly with exacting standards and elocution, if taken to extremes, can become the equivalent of mental and expressive constipation.

    Just occasionally cut loose.

    My roommate called me out on calling perfume juice as if I might mistakenly lead a stranger into drinking it, to which I then retorted:

    I agree that language is an evolving, living breathing thing. Thinking about it now, I'm certain that these terms are used mainly by the men who talk about fragrances on YouTube (not the everyday man buying something to smell nice), which is probably a small group. I just found the masculine affectation toward perfume interesting and even endearing ('daily driver' is cute, but 'panty dropper' is disgusting).

    I am definitely all for men getting together and talking about perfume or frags, as long as it's not in any way harmful towards women.

    It's similar to how I want men to value friendships and vulnerability/closeness more... if the term 'bromance' helps, then I think that's still progress?? I hope that makes sense.

    I think you may be right about those terms mainly used by guys on youtube..I usually never watch YouTube reviews but a couple of years I watched a few of those so called fragrance reviewers and that is the place I heard those terms and descriptions.

    It makes sense to me.Although I have got to admit I don't like the term bromance either.Call me old fashioned.

    IMO as long as the audience understands it, who cares which terms are used? There might be some subcultural context to it but it’s a public forum after all. The men do tend to obsess over ‘performance’ issues but seriously, where’s the harm? Let’s not get too pedantic here.

    I use it the same way, if talking distinctly of the liquid in the bottle, almost like a technical term for the liquid only. I would not likely use it interchangeably with concept words like perfume, fragrance, or scent.

    Fwiw, people were calling it “juice” when I started collecting back in ‘85 so the idea that it’s a “modern” term is lost on me. I do find it interesting to see what type of connotations people have for these different words though. For me, when I was growing up “cologne” always sounded like the stuff teenagers put on to attract whoever they were trying to attract. “Perfume” sounded like something someone’s great aunt wore when they were going to a rotary meeting. “Fragrance” always a sounded way too pretentious for me to deal with... I suppose I’ve never found a term that I truly resonate with for describing this stuff!

    Apparently there was a special edition Creed made for OJ. The cap was made too small for the sprayer. They just called it Juice 1995. If you can find them they go for a carton load.

    If the cap don't fit, you've got to acquit. First editions were shipped in white Ford Broncos to boutiques.

    Can't hear the word "juice" anymore without thinking of the endlessly delightful Lizzo...

    It ain't my fault that I'm out here gettin' loose
    Gotta blame it on the Goose
    Gotta blame it on my juice, baby
    It ain't my fault that I'm out here makin' news
    I'm the pudding in the proof
    Gotta blame it on my juice


    I believe she is using juice in a different sense, but perhaps she does mean her perfume.

    I like the insider terminology used within our hobby community because it’s more lighthearted and fun! What are we supposed to say? Liquid, fluid, contents? Pretty boring.

    it's used as slang for so many things...

    juice = electricity
    juice = gasoline (fuel) "give it more juice", "gotta stop and get some go-go juice"
    juice = steroids "that guys on the juice"
    juice = street credibility (tons of references in hip-hop songs)
    juice = alcohol "who's bringing the juice to the party?"
    juice = gossip
    juice = money

    and on and on.

    My wife drinks a lot of actual juice. When she's mid sip, I like to yell out a line from one of my favorites artists "Bring on the juice, Make me sweat!", so she laughs and spits it out. (James Brown's Funky Drummer)
