Scents of Arabia has obviously its main focus on arabian perfume but now and then you will find some reviews on exceptional (at least for me) 'french' perfumes as well, like today.
Juliette has a Gun is a relatively new perfume label created by Romano Ricci in 2006 who has perfume in his genes as his great grandmother was the grand fashion dame Nina Ricci and his grandfather Robert Ricci who created the perfume legend "L'air du Temps".
For his label Romano choosed the grand parfumeur Francis Kurkdjiian who created two of the six fragrances.
The whole concept from the name itself, the logo, the design, the marketing philosophy and finally the fragrances are inherently so consistent that I can't find a comparison which would convince me that way. A great job was done.
Juliette has a Gun was mainly inspired by Shakespear's Juliette but here is a modern Juliette with a gun in her hand who is indepentdent , self confident, at times dangerous and obtain whatever she needs but remain still feminine and romantic! Amazing are also the several fragrance names of this collection:
- Not a perfume
- Miss Charming
- Lady Vengeance
- Citizen Queen
- Calamity J.
- Midnight Oud
I came to the conclusion that the most names were perfectly choosed to describe the scent.
Interesting is also the fact how the fragrances are composed in a unique way uniting the familiar notes compositions like in Lady Vengeance: rose-patchouli-vanilla with a syntetic ingridient in this case Cetalox. Usually I don't like syntetic ingridients in perfumes but this one is giving exactly that kick what Juliette here actually is: a mix of the conventional and the modern Juliette! Further the Cetalox is not unpleasent in the nose like it actually sounds.
Lady Vengeance is actually the one I found for myself most suitable though I am not vengeful at all. I am using the gun just to bluff arround ;-)
As I already said the notes composition is familiar but this interpretation is very special. It gives you the right dose wearing it: you are not too young and not too old, not too provocative and not too shy...
You can wear it on your trip into the countryside almost tasting the scent like chocolate filled with strawberry cream or to a tango night wearing your bright red dress with compatible red lipstick and feeling ultra-feminine!
Here I have the same opinion like Romano by himself: for me a perfume doesn't have just to smell nice! While inhaling it, you have to have pictures in your head, the skin has to prickle!
