Make sure you never run out of this elusive scent by picking up the matching 100 ml bottle.

Juliette Has a Gun

Birchbox Breakdown

Romano Ricci, the self-described “offbeat dandy of the perfume world,” used only a single element to create this minimalist perfume. Ricci takes Shakespeare’s ill-fated heroine as the inspiration for his line, giving her a 21st century makeover. Not a Perfume is a unique, minimalist scent that uses just a single note.

How it Works

Even if you’ve never heard of Cetalox, you’ve undoubtedly picked up its scent. Used as a back note in thousands of fragrances, Cetalox (a synthetic substitute for grey amber) takes center stage in Not a Perfume. The result is clean and pure, as well as being allergen-free.

How to Use

Spritz on pulse points and take charge as the leading lady in your own life.

Juliette Has a Gun Not a Perfume
Purchased

I first got received a sample of this perfume and loved it. Tried it for a while and decided I had to get a bottle which I'm glad I did. I don't like smelling like the next person so to me, it was worth the $$'s. I would get the 50 ml unless you don't get bored with your smells. I do so I know by the time I finish this bottle I'll be on to the next one but like I said, it's definitely worth the money.

Lasts all day

For all the perfumes and fragrances that I have sampled through BB (and beyond!) this is the first one that after a long work day, and only applying in the morning, my husband said to me "You smell REALLY good" when I got home. In fact, he even mentioned a few days later, "Was that in your box? You should order that one." THAT for me is a sign of a winning fragrance.

Smells delicious! I want I want I want!!!!

This was sampled in my Birchbox and it is one of the most gorgeous smelling perfumes. I wish that it weren't so expensive or I'd buy it full size.

NOT A PERFUME?

This perfume has an amazing scent and has become my favorite out of all my samples that have come within the past year of being a birchboxer. I can't wait to purchase the full size! A++

This is the nicest scent I've ever purchased. I could not wait for it to come in the mail. It lasts a long time and it smells light and fresh. I'm wearing it on my wedding day!

Fantastic Fragrance, Tricky Packaging....
Purchased

Immediately bought this after opening the sample. I love the simplicity and familiarity of this note coupled with the fact that no one else seems to have this perfume yet. I get so many compliments on it. One star knocked off because the bottle leaks and a good bit of the product was lost to the lining of a purse. Be careful with the lid/nozzle on this, you do NOT want this all over your breath mints, gum, medication or anything else you put in your mouth. It smells great, but you do NOT want to taste this stuff!

my sample is gone

Out of all the fragrance samples I have received from Birchbox (or anyone, anywhere), this is the one that I totally used up. I'm not a huge perfume wearer to begin with. I always feel like my hair products and body lotion are enough. But this one is so fresh, clean and just different. Love it!

Not a perfume...

Not a perfume... because it doesn't smell like anything. Maybe a smidge more pleasant than spraying yourself with water. I don't get it.

Clean and deep scent

This perfume will not appeal to everyone, but if you like amber or green scents, check this out. It's a single note that is usually used as a base note in regular scents. When it's all by itself, you really realize it's importance to other perfumes and its singular beauty. I love this as much on a night out as I do at work, it's lovely but not overpowering. It's "lean on close to my neck" sexy, too!
