In 2010, Romano Ricci created Juliette Has a Gun Not A Perfume. I interviewed Romano in 2012 and here is a snippet from that interview:
What was your thinking behind Juliette Has A Gun Not a Perfume? What is it then? What’s the connection to Juliette?
Romano Ricci: It is a little bit outside of the collection actually. Instead of presenting a portrait, it is focused on a particular ingredient. Not A Perfume, being made out of a single ingredient (Cetalox©), 100% synthetic, allergen free. Quite a UFO in the perfumery world.
I remember asking Geza Schoen who created Escentric Molecules (the year JHAG Not A Perfume debuted in 2010) if he thought it was similar to his creation and he told me no. Juliette Has a Gun Not a Perfume has become one of the house’s most popular fragrances since it isn’t a complicated or complex scent. Whether you are a perfume journalist looking to clear your “palette” after smelling 300 new releases so far (I have) this year or someone who is looking for a clean, simple fragrance that works for your everyday life, Juliette Has A Gun Not A Perfume is a great antidote to heavy overpowering scents. So mix it up! –Michelyn Camen, Editor in Chief
