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.

Awful. Funeral Home.

Smells terrible. Kind of like something that is musky and floral but has gone bad, or maybe like a bottled funeral home. This was in my third birchbox and I've now had two perfume samples when I'm supposed to receive no more than 6 a year. I hope the fact that they call this 'not a perfume' does not mean it won't count towards that number. I hate perfume, I do not use it, please stop sending it to me!

I would pay NOT to wear this

I'm admittedly not a perfume fan, but I really, really disliked this. It's spicy and perfumy in a stereotypical way. I tried to wash it off but it's stuck to me. Yuck!

This fragrance is awful.

I wouldn't want to wear it or be near someone wearing it. It was a cross between old-lady like and cheap. I typically like a light natural scent. This wasn't it.

Grandma's Perfume

I hate getting perfumes in my Birchbox, but realize there is nothing I can do about it. I try to be as objective as I can when I review the perfumes they send me. This perfume smells like something my grandma wore in the late 80s. It smells like something derived from a chemical made in a lab. Nothing natural smelling about it and it is giving me a headache. Bleck.

My family and I did not enjoy this scent. My teen daughter told me it smelled like something a much older lady would wear and my spouse asked me to wash it off.

Haaaate this perfume
Sampled

When I selected my preferences for birch box I said I would prefer very few perfumes. This particular one was described as being not a perfume and using the ingredient that is normally the undertone in most perfumes. Well, that undertone must be the reason I dislike perfumes, because this scent is just so overpowering and gives me an instant headache and nausea. I would definitely not recommend to anyone sensitive to scents.

Hated It

This smells like an old lady. In fact, no one would even take it from me. None of my friends or co-workers would even take it from me. I ended up throwing it away.

Not so much

This scent was not for me - first one I've received that I won't be using. Packaging looks nice on full size, though.

Really didn't like the smell. Would not purchase it or recommend it to anyone. Birchbox offers so many other wonderful smells they should not send this out as a sample to anyone!

Does not smell so good

I was not impressed but this perfume. It was weird and not appealing to my nose or others. I am a huge perfume lover and love trying new scents but this scent was not my favorite.
