Not a Perfume, Juliette Has a Gun - *new*
The much-ballyhooed newest addition to Romano Ricci's stellar line of scents in Juliette Has a Gun is called, interesting, Not a Perfume. This, of course, lends itself to myriad questions and answers and debates and discussions...
We'll start with a quote straight from the horse's mouth, as it were: "If my different creations had one thing in common, it would be the presence of an ingredient I am particularly fond of. Overdosed in Lady V and Calamity J, more discreet in Miss Charming and Citizen Queen, I use it regularly to bring elegance to my creations because of its unique and inimitable woody, musky finesse. So, this time I have created a perfume out of this one ingredient � a perfume that wouldn�t be "perfume" in the conventional sense of the term. I will leave you to discover it on your skin because it is only through contact that its secrets will be unveiled.� - Romano Ricci, Founder
Our personal take on this unusual offering is that it is what it is. And THAT is...a quiet, crisp, clean scent that adjusts to its wearer...we've observed it as aggressive on one willing subject and quite soft and powdery on another. We have found that it somehow manages to suit the occasion as well as the wearer...you may find as you wend your way through a crowded Friday-night bar that it becomes energizing and exciting; you might also find that it recedes into the background in quite a pleasing fashion as you loll in bed of a sunday morning, buttering your croissants and thumbing through your Sunday Times as slowly as you possibly can...
Not a Perfume is composed of 1 single synthetic ingredient � Ambroxan. Ambroxan is a molecular creation that comes from the organic research. Developed by Firmenich in the 1950�s to replace Ambergris, a very rare natural secretion of whales, Ambroxan comes in the form of white crystals. It is usually used as a back note in perfume composition, even if its smell is curiously quite far from its original inspiration.
