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.

Afraid to wear it out

I kind of like this scent, and it's interesting because it smells very... natural. Almost too natural. It's kind of like a b.o. scent, but nicer. It's got a bit of that pungentness to it, which makes me afraid to wear it out. I'm afraid people will think I didn't shower and then put on perfume, because that's kind of what this stuff smells like. Whenever I put it on , I always spray an old standby on over it to try to mask it. I've done this a few times because I kept thinking I might change my mind and I might like it this time, but I always feel the same.

Oldfashion Scent

I received this in my March Box. It reminds me of my grandmother. I didn't like it for myself. I did however spray it on a wash cloth a placed it in a drawer.

Not my preferred scent

I like more of a fruity floral or clean type fragrance. This scent is not for me. It smells more woody or musky to me.

It's different but I like it!

I really like this! It has a sort of clean linen smell to it and not overpowering. Very nice for a spring scent.

samples size

the sample size was terrible. It made the sample completely unusable. I "think" the perfume smells nice, but I'm not sure because the sample was on a piece of paper :-(

Not for me.

I love to sample and use different perfumes but this just smelled weird. I tried it a few times and it is not for me.

Very Clean

I work in a small office and have to be careful with strong perfumes and this one is perfect. Even my husband that can't stand most perfumes loves this crisp clean scent.

My favorite perfume !

I love this unique single note fragrance! It doesn't smell like anything else and becomes it's own scent on me. I spray a bit on my sheets sometimes to help me sleep because the fragrance is just intoxicating, (although it's a little pricey to use as a linen spray!)
