Ever since I had the pleasure to see and sniff the perfumes from the niche line Juliette Has a Gun I was impressed by its careful constructed image and the pleasant aroma and I regretted that it does not have a masculine perfume in the collection. The house was founded in 2006 by the grandson of Nina Ricci, Romano Ricci and the first perfumes arrived on the market that very year were Lady Vengeance and Miss Charming. My wife’s favorite, Citizen Queen, (a perfume that I promised to buy for her 2 years ago, and I’m still left with a promise to keep!) arrived on the market in 2008 and in 2009 was followed by a ready-to-wear clothing line, launched by Romano Ricci and his sister Antina.
The most recent perfume of the house is Romantina, “the first floral fragrance of Juliette Has a Gun’ collection”, as described in the official website and “an ode to insouciance”. The occasion of testing Romantina on my wife’s skin revealed a romantic fragrance, the type that is appropriate for a young woman, in which the dominant notes are represented by accords of white flowers.
Romantina was introduced in 2011 and belongs to the chypre floral olfactory group. Its listed notes include: musk, orange blossom, Rose, jasmine, iris, osmanthus, Madagascar vanilla and patchouli. When referring to this fragrance Romano Ricci mentions “a modern tale, as refreshing as an afternoon at the café of a Roman piazetta”. The flacon that holds Romantina is Juliette Has a Gun’s signature bottle (in which the packaging box adorned with a ribbon plays a special part!), this time in a white color scheme with the name of the house printed in black and perfume’s name in red.
