Juliette Has a Gun Not a Perfume - 100 ml

Romano Ricci, the self-described “offbeat dandy of the perfume world”, only used one element—Cetalox—to create this minimalist perfume. Even if you'’ve never heard of it, 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 elegant, pure, spicy, and completely allergen-free.

To my surprise, I actually love the smell. It also came in pretty cute packaging too. Would very much recommend to anyone shopping for a new scent.

The scent was okay, but I'm not sure it's something I want to wear everyday. Just not my cup of tea, I think.

I've never been able to judge whether I will like a perfume from reading other's reviews. That said, this one is interesting, a very woodsy, musky scent. Definitely reminds me of fall and winter. I'm sure others have said it, but it smells similar to Dolce and Gabana Light Blue - that perfume definitely has this note in it. I found it a bit strong for my taste, but did like that it lasted on my skin for a very long time.

I love this scent! I received a sample in my Birchbox and have used it almost every day after that. I am not really one for perfumes and have never used a perfume regularly before this one. Often they seem too chemical to me, or just smell fake. The scent is amazing- subtle, more low notes, and it definitely works well on me. I purchased the full size not long after getting the sample and I am very happy with it. The packaging is pretty and the bottle itself is white, which I appreciate as that helps protect the perfume from light/sun etc.

Love at First Sniff
SampledPurchased

The only reason I can't give it five stars is because I still have residual guilt for spending over $100 on perfume but I'm so in love with this scent.

Earthy.

Primal.

Sexy.

Basic, but beautiful.

These are all things that came to mind when I received the sample in my Birchbox. After several days of wearing it and sniffing my wrist ever 10 minutes, I had to break down for the full size.

The smell of this perfume is just amazing. I received so many compliments while wearing it. I'm hoping my hubby will buy me another for Christmas this year :) I love that it is just one ingredient. It is very fresh and light and I don't feel like I'm wearing a heavy scent.

Love it!!

My favorite scent sample by far that I've received through birchbox. The scent lasts for hours. I really can't wait to purchase it.

Full-sized product is different scent than the sample
SampledPurchased

I fell in love with the sample I received. Unfortunately, the full-sized product is about 1/10th the strength of the sample and has a slightly different scent. I even exchanged it for another bottle in the hopes that the first bottle was defective. What a bummer. I don't fall in love with many scents.

Great, long-lasting scent!

This has to be one of my favorite products I've gotten from Birchbox. Juliette has a Gun does have a minimalist scent, but lasts almost all day. I received many compliments on the smell at work and out with friends. I will most likely be getting the full-sized bottle, since it seemed like the perfect perfume for early autumn outings.
