Take this fragrance (and other favorites) on the go with the Juliette Has a Gun Universal Purse Spray.

Juliette Has a Gun

Birchbox Breakdown

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.

Sophisticated and Simple
Sampled

I loved sampling this fragrance... It's nice to experience something unique as so many fragrances have started to smell the same as of recent. This is the perfect option for the workplace as its sophistication is classic and unoffensive to anyone who may be anti-fragrance. It smells expensive and subtle.

Smells good

It sounds good. I don't use it daily and I probably wouldn't use it daily if I bought it. But I do you like the smell

Wonderful!!

The smell is very subtle, soft and attractive. The only downside is that it isn't a lasting scent but I could still smell it on my wrists. The price was too high for me as well.

Love it!

I use it at night just because I feel it's a bit strong for Texas heat in a summer day but it's really nice to wear n not over powering at all.

Different than the sample
Sampled

I fell in LOVE with this fragrance when it arrived. It was the perfect distinct yet subtle scent that gave me a unique presence when I walked into a room. I decided to splurge on a bottle, only to find that the scent was considerably lighter than the sample. I felt like I had to douse myself just to get the same affect. On top of that the scent changed to alcohol after I bought it. Very disappointing! It has since changed back, but it's still nothing like the sample. I fully believe in splurging for a good perfume, but do yourself a favor and find a comparable scent with better quality ingredients...or buy it from a place with a generous return policy!

I WILL BUY THIS

I'm not a fan of heavy, overdone scents and always receive them with a certain amount of trepidation. This scent, however - what a winner! Thank you, Birchbox. My sister was crazy about it, too (yes, I've been sharing it with friends).

good scent

This scent is nice and not overpowering. Would be great when you just want a subtle perfume. I sometimes get headaches when scents are too strong and this product did not have that effect on me.

This scent smells go good, and it lasted all day! Love the story behind the product, and the fact that it only uses one element. Likely to purchase in the future!
