Juliette Has A Gun has launched their third fragrance, Citizen Queen. The scent is described as a chypre aldehyde with animalic notes.
A perfume as intriguing as this woman’s look, hidden behind her hat.
First, a striking and elusive allure.
Suddenly, the wind blows and a fragrance is surrounding me.
An intimidating chypre, that has a slacker and wicked « je-ne-sais-quoi ».
Oddly enough, aldehyde and animal notes are coming to me.
Juliette Has A Gun Citizen Queen is available in 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum. It can be found now at Colette in Paris, and is expected to launch elsewhere next month. (via press release from Juliette Has A Gun)
I like both the Juliettes, and I'm not big on rose scents. I don't quite understand the ad copy ('slacker'?) but the idea sounds intriguing.
Their PR agency provided the translation; no idea if it is an accurate reflection of the original French — I didn't even check, esp. since I often don't understand ad copy in original English…
Fraglish is one weird language, true?
And Franglish ad-speak, the specialized variant
Forget about Citizen Queen, I think they should have gone with Wicked Slacker. I would SO wear a fragrance by that name!
I like their other two frags, I think this one is a 'must try' for me.
Wicked Slacker!! We need such a scent.
This one is not by Francis Kurkdjian, unfortunately, and can't find out who developed it. But I'm looking forward to trying it too.
Does anyone know anything about where this line originated? I had never heard of it until I saw it in person at my local luxury deptartment store. Bizarre name for a fragrance – I'm wondering if it refers to something.
It is a French line from the grandson of Nina Ricci, and it is supposed to be “inspired” by Skakespearean heroines.
The words, “chypre aldehyde with animalic notes” have *my* immediate attention.
I wonder if Pefumed Court might have a sample? *wanders off to investigate*
If they don't yet, I'm sure they will soon!
I tried it today at the Ny Gift Fair… smelled like a muskier version of David Yurman. And linear.
I did not love it myself…
