Romano Ricci, the creative founder of the French label and the great-grandson of the legendary Nina Ricci set up this distinctive niche house back in 2006. As signaled by its quirky name, ‘Juliette Has A Gun’ creates unique versatility not only within perfume enthusiast circles but also in general. The brand features a diverse range of sophisticated, well-blended rose-scents in bold and edgy contrasts.
This summer, Romano Ricci’s ‘Juliette Has a Gun’ introduces a new fragrance to the world. Vanilla Vibes, the newest perfume for men and women in the classic range is heavily inspired by the ‘Burning Man’ festival.
Last week, Ricci hosted an exclusive fragrance launch at Beautique, a luxury perfume concept store in Dubai, showcasing its newest addition to the collection. The press event was hosted by Antina Ricci, Romano’s sister in an unforgettable scent-sational evening.
Juliette Has a Gun ~ Vanilla Vibes
More on the fragrance:
The bottle evokes resonance with the electric and unknowing Nevada travels. Though the harsh environment may seem unforgiving, the warm gusts of wind passing through sun-baked desert, rows of rugged trailers, the salt lakes parched beneath relentless summer sun – the festival still returns each year.
Vanilla Vibes is beautifully encased in an ultra-modern bottle with a stunning pink and blue gradient effect. The luminous bottle is reminiscent of the sky at sunset. The warm colors contrast with the cylindrical metallic grey cap and the holographic logo cover.
Olfactive Family: Ambery Fresh
The notes include fleur de sel, vanilla, orchid, sandalwood, tonka bean, brown musk and benzoin.
Vanilla Vibes smells dusty, earthy and a little salty. The base of this fragrance presents itself both as warm and ambery due to the combination of benzoin, vanilla and musky notes. The projection isn’t as strong and sharp as that offered by “Lady Vengeance” and “Not a Perfume”. In fact, the scent stays very close to the skin through out. Again, it is very different from what I had in mind before I set to test the new release. I would love to hear your thoughts on this. Feel free to share them with me here.
Juliette Has A Gun Vanilla Vibes is available now at Beautique in Festival City Mall and Bawabat Al Sharq Mall. Also available at Paris Gallery stores, Bloomingdale and Harvey Nichols at Dhs 520 for 100 ml.
