In this opus Romano Ricci creates velvety, smoky accords of Oud, rather than the dense, damp, earthy notes which are prevalent in most of today's agarwood derived fragrances. It is this seductive aroma that is present from the top to the dry down, wrapping itself around a core of robust, rococo rose. Patchouli and Amber add to the exotic luxury of this scent, which is also peppered with precious saffron, bringing a suggestion of sweet, green grass to this complex concoction, complimented by fresh sandalwood. The inclusion of musk guarantees longevity on the skin and provides a further layer of intrigue in this rich and beguiling scent.
Top: Saffron, Papyrus, Bergamot, Damask Rose
Middle: Oud, Moroccan Rose, Castoreum, Germanium
Base: Patchouli, Sandalwood, Amber, Musk
Juliette Has A Gun is the brainchild of Romano Ricci great grandson of the great Nina Ricci. Juliette has A Gun continues to cut a swathe through perfume cognoscenti world-wide with its stunning release. Juliette Has A Gun parfums are created by the legendary Francis Kurkdjian, a nose at the peak of his powers who has designed fragrances for Narcisso Rodriguez, Aqua di Parma, Dior and Armani – clearly one of the greats, hailed by some as a successor to the ineffable Roudnitska. Juliette Has A Gun takes Juliet Capulet, Shakespeare’s tragic heroine, as its inspiration, imagining her in a more feisty 21st century incarnation, this time armed and taking no prisoners and certainly no advice from poisoners. Roullier White are excited to stock this dynamic and exciting brand.
