Juliette Has A Gun Gentlewoman description

In keeping with their tongue-in-cheek, and daringly sarcastic style, Juliette Has a Gun presents us with a traditionally male eau de cologne that a woman can call her own.

Gentlewoman starts out as one would expect a classic eau de cologne to begin, namely with a crisply acidic blend of neroli, bitter orange, petitgrain and bergamot. The neroli and petitgrain hit the high notes, while the…

Smells good but not great?
I really liked this. It smelled clean, lavender, a little masculin. But also a little boring? Overall i was glad to try it. I do like sentbird, Ive had them for a few months now, they charge a little weird sometimes, like I get emails saying I didnt pay, but it did come out of my account and then I get the email confirmation. Overall though good price to try travel sizes of random scents. Keep up the good work!

Love this scent
Since trying scentbird I have met Juliette has a gun and I have tried multiple fragrances by this particular brand. I absolutely love gentlewoman and get so many compliments when I wear it. Its not overly sweet or floral or overpowering but does last all day and is really nice when layered with the vanilla Juliette has a gun. Would definitely purchase a larger bottle of "gentlewoman" in the future.

Chemicals and Musk
I really disliked the smell of this. Perfume goes stale after a while and the chemical smell comes out more and more. This is what the "Gentlewoman" perfume smelled like. It also seems like more of a cologne that a perfume. I tried to get my husband to try it, but he said it was too chemical-smelling as well. It was recommended to me based on the scent quiz, and was my first perfume to try after signing up for the subscription. I'm hoping the next one will be better, because so far the experience has not been good.

Cloying chemical floral
To me this smelled like getting clothes back from the dry cleaner, powdery chemical flowers. It smelled better sprayed on paper than my skin, so it seems like this one is hit or miss on how well it works with you. Good staying power, but maybe because I wanted it to go away and it wouldn't.

The first time I smelled it, I hated it. A day later I smelled it again, I liked it. It's something I wouldnt wear daily and like some reviews suggest, it's very "grandma." Luckily I was looking for just that type if scent for a friend, so I'll be passing it on lol

Just awful
I was really hoping I would like this scent, because I have loved everything else I have tried from JHAG. But this. This is just terrible. It smells heavily soapy and like my grandmother. No offense to my grandmother. I just don’t wanna walk around smelling like an old soap bar. I gave it to my mother who seemed to like it.

Super Soapy
This scent is just not something I'd wear. It is a very mature scent, and smells extremely flowery and very strongly like powdery soap. If very thick, heavy floral scents are your thing, you would probably enjoy this.

Absolutely in Love
November is my one year anniversary with scent bird! I have loved so many of my choices and am extremely happy I decided to become a member! I am quite picky when it comes to different scents. Gentle Woman by Juliette Has a Gun is by far the best thing I have ever in my entire 45 years on this planet had the pleasure of smelling! I am absolutely in love with it! So much so that I changed my entire Q so that I could get it this month! I will buy a big bottle but for right now it's Christmas and I have kids lol! But I am out and I am going through withdrawals! If you want to fall in love with a fragrance, this one is for you! Oh my God I just can't say enough!❤

So fresh n so clean clean.
Oh my... Pure soapy magic! It’s baby powered reimagined; the 2018 remix. Lite n warm with a slight citrus top layer and soft-white floral/nutty undertones. Oh so soft... oh so glorious. (While I was out running errands/voting, I can’t tell you how many people stopped and asked me what I was wearing) Yes this is a unisex perfume, that said, it is a tad feminine. Enjoy! P.S. If you liked or wanted to try Silent St; Gentlewoman is a poyfect substitute.

I like where it ends up...
The opening of this scent is a little heavy for me, with a somewhat overpowering soapiness that covers up all the lovely citrusy notes. But eventually the soapiness calms down, and I end up enjoying the spicy lavender notes that come out. So I keep wearing the scent, even though I don't particularly enjoy the first thirty minutes. Gentlewoman lasts all day on my skin. I've no idea what the sillage is like... it seems awkward to me to ask people if they can smell me from across the room. I hope it stays within my 3-foot personal space bubble. I've never had anyone comment positively or negatively on the scent.

Love it in the heat
At first I just thought it was OK. I liked the lavender, neroli and orange blossom well enough but it was a bit soapy. Than I wore it in a hot car and wow! Salty fig leaf and almond join in and the floral notes sweeten. It is complex and belongs in the same family as Hermes Jardin Mediterranean, which was my favorite last summer.

Old Lady Perfume
So far, this is the only product I've ordered and haven't liked. I tried to detect the neroli and bergamot, but all I got was a powerful whiff of old-lady-perfume. Way too musky and powdery for me. So disappointed!

Smells Exactly like the Name
The fresh Sweet Almond and Musk notes hit you right away, then the bergamot gives it a weight and you immediately understand how it became appropriately named, Gentlewoman. I wore this to the office and it fit RIGHT in. Even a few men asked me what I was wearing. So often women's perfumes are expected to be light and gentle, sexy or flowery versions of the male counterpart but THIS ONE RIGHT HERE can hold her own. It lasted ALL day for me (it survived the sweaty, tense meeting I attended lol) and it's a BOLD scent that you'll notice (in a good way) without being heavy. It's almost calming at the end, that must me the orange blossom. Gave this one 5 stars because it didn't make it through the month. I wore it EVERYDAY.. even on weekends .. and sometimes to bed.

New Signature Scent!
I got the DIscovery sampler and fell in love with this scent and had to order the full size bottle! It's a beautiful scent - light and creamy. I've gotten several complements on it. A co-worker thought it was Not a Perfume, which she wears and it smells awesome on her. Unfortunately that one basically evaporates on me upon spritzing it on. Not Gentlewoman - it has outstanding staying power! It doesn't go on heavy as some fragrances do, and I find the scent comforting. Definately don't want to be without this one!

Great staying power (unfortunately).
This has great staying power. One spray lingered all day long. Sadly, I don’t think this fragrance was for me. I did not find this fragrance to be masculine or light (2 adjectives in the description that pulled me in), and on me it pulled super powdery and old smelling (not like an old person; just stuffy). Like the smell of an antique store or something.

This smells terrible! I have a few of these and they smell great but not this one. This scent reminds me of a cleaning product mixed with baking soda.

Nice clean smell. I tend to like something a little more dramatic but the scent stays for a long time and it's nice for work.

More floral than I was expecting, but still has a sultry feel that I like. It's not my favorite, however I would still recommend it.
