Tuesday Scent Mood: Gentlewoman by Juliette Has A Gun
With a defining eau de masculinity edge, Juliette Has A Gun Gentlewoman is reinvented feminine cologne reserved only for the woman who proudly displays her stronger, unshaded masculine side.
Boasting a multidimensional citrus opening rush, Gentlewoman showcases no trace of gentleness: the citrus is sharp, mouthwatering juicy but bitter, containing all of the components needed for a modern formula of the traditional Eau De Cologne.
And just when you begin to get adjusted to the overtly masculinity, the femininity skyrockets in a rather floral facet: lavender and orange blossom layered on spicy coumarin and sweet almond.
The dry down is watermarked with Romano Ricci’s signature, although his leitmotif, the rose is understandably absent from this composition. Instead, Ricci mixes the alchemical properties of the Ambroxan with musk, but they are only gentle whispers of the unexpected bitterness that greets you in the opening.
Although not originally envisioned as gender bender unisex fragrance, Gentlewoman is a type of scent that would equally appeal to both sexes, as long as anyone who decides to test its water understands that the experience will be unique and not crowd pleasing.
