A musky composition on which we would have delicately laid a bouquet of white flowers. Romantina is an ode to insouciance. But when she suddenly reveals its true personality, it flirts with patchouli, almost giving it a hint of chypré...

Romantina description

Wearing perfume for the compliments you get is one way to enjoy your collection. But there are also scents that tell incredible stories through their notes, and once you catch on to what they’re saying, it takes wearing fragrance to another, higher level.

Take for example, Juliette Has a Gun’s Romantina. At first blush, this perfume is a musky skin scent with dashes of vanilla and patchouli for contrast. But to leave the story there denies you a much deeper understanding of what this perfume is doing.

It starts with plenty of sheer musk, for that close to the skin feeling, overlaid with orange blossom for a very feminine profile. And it’s a very young woman’s profile, cloud-soft and featherlight. Romantina has a gushingly delightful beginning – it’s impossible to smell this perfume and not break out in a goofy smile. This down pillow of a perfume wistfully floats along for the first few minutes of its development, and then, it begins to grow up as you wear it.

The fluffy, oh-golly vibe wears off and underneath it is a sultry jasmine note just waiting for its chance to rebel against all the Barbies and teddy bears in the top notes. The orange blossom runs away crying from the bratty jasmine, leaving the musky skin facets to deal with the new emotional territory Romantina is carving out in the heart. The difference in feel from the beginning to the middle of this fragrance is almost like hearing its voice change as you wear it.

And just to make the point completely clear, a vivid Madagascar vanilla note walks up behind the jasmine and winks at you. So just like that, Romantina has become a girl of 20. And she’s flirtatious, independent and very much not about teddy bears anymore. Except for her tattoo.

Romantina continues to grow older, as the jasmine and vanilla make way for a bold, scratchy patchouli note clearing its throat in the base. This is perfume as a grown woman, still with musky, soft skin and the sweet, flirtatious side, but now there’s more happening. Some memories that aren’t soft or flirty, maybe. An edgy, harsh wisdom has been earned.

The hidden pleasure in this perfume is how each layer adds deeper and bolder notes with more sensual overtones, as it ages and takes on more sophisticated nuances. So wear it for the nice compliments, or to see how it tells a story of a young woman encountering the world. Either way, Romantina is a complex white floral with plenty to discover.

I really like this scent, I've ordered it a couple times now. I typically like dark floral scents (woody or spicy overtones with floral undertones), and "Lady Vengeance" is by far my favorite scent. This one is a bit sweeter than that one, much heavier floral scent, but still excellent.

I really enjoy this scent and so does everyone around me. I get a lot of compliments, especially from my boyfriend and he is really picky about scent. The perfume has a clean, subtle floral and a little bit of spice/musk smell. It's not too sweet and not too overwhelming. I would suit this for a woman whom is strong willed and has a respectful profession where she has to attend pressured environments. Smells like confidence.

I'm surprised by how much I like this, given that the rose note is buried on my skin. The patchouli and vetiver comes through much more, but it's lovely--sexy and adult without being "old lady."

I dont like any particular scent, it has to be different and smell amazing on me. This is one of those scents. I loved it. And on, it smells amazing. Its sexy...it smells like when my bf leaves but i can still smell his cologne on the pillow kinda smell but a bit more foral, if that makes sense? Summer nights...or fall/winter mornings, thats prob when i would wear this.

Love this one! Not my typical scent type but I can't seem to get enough of it. I love the layers as the day wears on. Starts off a little spicy and darker and ends on a slight cologne-ish note, which as it turns out, I enjoy. I will definitely be purchasing a bigger bottle of this!

This is the FIRST fragrance by Juliette Has A Gun that I did NOT like! I sprayed it on when I first received it just to test it. About 30 minutes later, I kept thinking to myself "did someone spill cologne somewhere???" FINALLY, I realized that it was myself (scented with Romantina) that I was actually smelling. It has a somewhat masculine scent to it...musky (and oddly powdery) to the point of slight masculinity. Now...I realize that every fragrance does something different with each person's body chemistry. But...if you end up having this issue...just remember that you heard it first, lol.

There is a familiarity and nostalgia with this scent. Reminds me of an old room where flowers have lived and died. Clean sheets that have been stored in the linen closet where remnants of our body scent and detergent have mingled. Reminds me of my youth when we had no air conditioning. The smell of our freshly cleaned sweaty skin and laundered sheets would waft around us in the fan cooled air.

I LOVE THIS SCENT!!! This scent is so wonderful. It is full bodied with a warm rich scent that last from the time you put it on until the end of the day. Its one of those scents that you can smell on you and will have people asking what scent you are wearing as well. Not too heavy and perfect for winter.

This perfume smells so good. Unfortunately, the scent is too strong for my taste and I can't take more than one spritz at a time. The dry down is nice and soft, though. Romantina is probably best for a night out, not so much for an every day perfume.

This is a unique scent that's difficult to describe. It's very clean, rather bohemian but it doesn't have a stand-out cliche patchouli scent. I think it would be suitable for work, as it has kind of a got-it-together powerful-woman vibe, but it would also elevate a dressy-casual outfit to a more elegant form of flirtatious fun. Note that, to my nose, it's not very strong and doesn't last very long, so you'll need to refresh. I love that I can get this when a full bottle would be too pricey.

I'm not a big fan of JHAG as a whole but Romantina is a lovely little fragrance. A light clean scent with a bit of earthiness to hold it together. The longer your skin can hold this scent (very individual) the softer yet earthier this becomes. The earthiness is of a sensual vein with a gentle sexiness. Kind of nostalgic and melancholy on the dry down. Romantina is a spring fling that unexpectedly turns into an unforgettable affair of the heart. Sillage after dry down is close to the skin. Longevity is very dependent on individual chemistry.
