Juliette Has a Gun Not a Perfume - 50 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.

First, the name is silly. Second, the perfume itself is a bit off. I cannot place exactly the scent that is the offender, but it is the one that lingers. Initially, it smelled ok, not great, but as the top notes wore off, the base notes lingered way too long.

Certainly not a Perfume

Well I am very picky with my scents I like earthy and fresh scents nothing floral either. With this I feel I didn't get any of that. After having it on for a while, i felt the smell just lingered in a bad way. It reminds me of something a very old aunt would wear.

Not my type of scent

I'm not a big fan of perfume samples. I didn't care for this scent for me personally although my friend liked it. The scent does stay with you and the full size packaging is really cute. Just not my style.

I didn't like this perfume at all. It was much too strong for me. It spelled like I spilled vodka on myself.

Sorry, I did not like this scent. If you like spicy, earthy tones, you'll love it.
Unfortunately, I'm more of the fruity, sweet, floral type.

Not my scent. Based on the description and title I thought it would be subtle. Now that I look at it with the word gun in it I should have known better. :)

The scent was too musky/peppery for me and it took forever to wash off my skin.

I didn't like the scent in the bottle and it didn't settle nicely on me when I put it on.

I did not care for the scent of this perfume at all. Very strong and overpowering. Sample size was ok though.

I still haven't figured out what exactly this smells like, but the closest I've come is the ink on a page of a magazine. After sampling a bit on my wrists, it is a faint, light odor that doesn't linger, so I'm grateful for that!
