In the House – Brand Spotlight on Juliette Has a Gun

Juliette Has a Gun logo

In the House is a feature on EauMG. I’m collecting my experiences from years of perfume sampling and putting together a quick brand overview. There are so many perfume lines out there that it can be overwhelming. My goal with this is to quickly introduce people to niche and indie lines that may be of interest to them.

Who’s in the house? Juliette Has a Gun

Eating Crow – November 2014

I had said in my 6th Blogiversary post that I’d like to start doing a feature where I revisit perfumes to see if my “eaupinions” have changed. I said I wasn’t afraid to eat crow…and I’m not.

In November, I revisited some spicy scents that I’ve previously reviewed. So on this Thanksgiving let’s see if I’m going to eat any crow…

My goal is to not get compliments from my husband or from anyone else (oh, so punk). I’m not a parading peacock looking for other’s olfactory acceptance (OK, huge punky exaggeration). Now saying that, I’m human. I have been complimented on perfumes in the past and I admit that I rather… Continue reading | 43 Comments

Juliette Has A Gun Not A Perfume EDP Perfume Review

juliette has a gun not a perfume

I’m finally going to discuss Juliette Has a Gun Not a Perfume which brags about being a flacon of a very popular aromachemical, Ambrox.

Reasons this bothers me:

#1 – Why would a fragrance that is supposed to contain only one aromachemical cost the same as the other perfumes in the line that are more complex? Wouldn’t this one be much cheaper? I mean, it’s not like you had to pay a perfumer to make a great, novel composition?
