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..
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.
I love this fragrance. It is very mature, but not frumpy. I feel comfortable wearing it (as a twenty-something), but can imagine my grandmother (a classy old lady) wearing it and loving it as much as I do.
Doesn't come of as masculine on me even though it isn't fruity or floral. I am really enjoying this one. I like Citizen Queen and Mmmm a lot, and this one is in the same family (unlike Not A Perfume and Anyway which are also JHAG but completely different.
I loved this scent instantly. Everything about it made me feel a little daring and very classic. It had just enough of a masculine scent under the main scent to make it unique. Definitely a great business scent for the board room or a night out when you want to feel confident.
When I first sprayed this on, I really didn't care for it but it has grown on me to the point where I really, really like it and find myself using it every day. The neroli turned me off at first, but now I enjoy it a lot. It's fresh and unique and I don't smell myself coming and going. Love that!
At first spritz my daughter said "I regret spraying that!" upon second, third and fourth spritz I said "I can't live without it!" after spritz 15 my husband said "what is that scent it is driving me wild - it's better than Flower Bomb!" Which is why ladies...perfume is individual. It changes constantly depending on who wears it. I love the spicy and floral notes. Definitely one that grows on you! Give it a shot! Bang! Bang!
Love the clean lingering scent of Gentlewoman. I have a hard time finding fragrances that do not turn to a powder scent on me and this is one of them. If you are looking for something that is both clean and sexy Gentlewoman may be for you.
This was my first perfume, sent by mistake because it was waaaayyyy down the line in queue. Anyway, I will not order this again. I'm wearing it but it takes some time to get used to. It smells a tad of cedar and some other flower that I can't think of at the moment. It's not totally bad, it's just not for me.
The Worst- imagine the old lady next door died and you went to her estate sale where you found several decorative bottles of 50 year old Avon fragrances, you know, the kind that didn't even smell good when they were new? Then imagine you decided to mix them all together. That is what this fragrance smells like. I won't even be giving it away. I am pouring it in the toilet and recycling the bottle. Terrible.
