Juliette Has A Gun Gentlewoman Eau de Parfum Spray is rated out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by SGM57 from Cologne and gun barrels! I bought this 'blind' (or should that be 'noseless'?) after reading Thomas' review of it in his blog. I love more masculine scents - my standard/signature smell is the men's Aqua di Gio - so this sounded like my kind of perfume. The initial hit is of cologne, not 4711, but along those lines. There's also a green, sappy smell, like fresh twigs when you strip the bark off them (what, did no-one else do that as a kid?). What really gets me is the undertone of metal, which, given the name of the brand, smells like a well-oiled gun barrel. As I love the scent of gun cupboards and old-style tool shops, this works a treat for me. The scent seems to last a reasonable length of time, as I can catch whiffs of it later in the day. Maybe Juliet Has A Gun will create one of my all-time favourite aromas - that of spent shotgun cartridges! And no - I'm not pro-gun at all, just recalling smells from my childhood!
