Juliette Has a Gun Mmmm…Review

Juliette Has a Gun Mmmm…is one of the newest fragrances to join the Juilette Has a Gun permanent collection. This gorgeous concoction is a unique olfactory experience that surprises, delights, and takes you on a trip through gourmand wonderland. When I first misted this one I felt like one of the lucky children that got to visit Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. It’s a gourmand experience that will take you on an adventure through candy land with sweet, warm, and sexy notes that are playfully innocent and incredibly sultry.

Only one thing comes to mind,

“Like double cherry pie. Yeah, there she was like disco superfly! I smell sex and candy here.”


I have so many regrets about purchasing a small size of Juliette Has a Gun Mmmm…!

I happen to have all the Juliette Has a Gun Fragrances and I think it’s an incredible niche brand of unique scents but many fail to work with my body chemistry and have a shorter wear and linger. Sad sigh! Mmmm…actually has the same wear and linger as the other scents I own from the fragrance house but I regret my smaller purchase none the less as this scent is truly a stunning gourmand. Keep in mind this isn’t a gourmand that hits you in the face like Flowerbomb, Miss Dior Cherie, Guerlain La Petite Robe, and La Vie Est Belle. This is a soft, pleasant, and highly sexy gourmand.

After I misted it on the first thing that entered my head was the lyrics to Marcy’s Playground’s Sex and Candy. It best described this scent in the fact that you get an innocent sweetness contrasted by a devilish darkness but neither side overpowers. It isn’t too sweet nor is too cloyingly dark. It’s a marriage of lightness and darkness, a meeting at a perfectly soft sexy center.

I love the description or “recipe” that Juliette has a Gun used to describe this. “For a sheer bliss, mix 10 grams of distilled neroli, an ounce of jasmine sambac, and a knob of iris butter. Melt a little caramel, add some fresh raspberries, and slowly bring to the boil. Gently stir in a pinch of ground Sandalwood and a dash of patchouli, sprinkle a few grams of icing sugar, and whisk until a delicious sigh is achieved.”

At first spritz you’re enveloped in a cloud of candied floral notes. Neroli blossoms falling from the tree and swirling to the ground below with a touch of sultry jasmine and iris in the background. As it dries down and warms up on your skin caramel comes out to play with a slightly sweetened burst of raspberry. Further into the wear, within a few moments of the dry down and the burst of initial gourmand goodness from caramel and raspberry wears away, that small dash of patchouli comes through! But it’s wrapped in a layer of sugary icing which takes the edge, darkness, and harshness from patchouli and gives it warmth and sweetness. Within an hour or so you’ll find the scent has a smooth, creamy vanilla, slightly almond (think Lush Snowcake), and sandalwood final set.

It’s delicious but never too sweet and never too dark. It’s a marriage in the middle of sweet innocence and dark sexiness. A stunning offering from Juliette Has a Gun that’s well worth picking up if you’re a gourmand lover.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I love your taste in perfumes!
    I happen to own JAHG Miss Charming.
    This one sounds really tempting…..

  • Z

    ahh I am so tempted by your descriptions! Sadly my local sephora doesn’t carry Juliette has a Gun, I hate blind buying perfumes! But the raspberry notes sounds promising!

  • Lauren

    Sounds very interesting! I might have to try to get a sample, though, because while I adore iris, jasmine sometimes doesn’t play well with my sinuses.

    I ordered this during the Rouge sale based on a couple comments I read on your site. I’ve liked all that you recommended so can’t wait to try it. I fully intended on buying a larger Not A Perfume, but after reading the comments changed my mind. I only splurged on a few perfumes for me this year but bought a bunch of stuff for my daughter (who called me today to say she just made VIB – like mother, like daughter).
    Thanks for all the hard work you put into this site; I’m never disappointed when I purchase something you recommend.

      Let me know what you think Carol! Curious if you’ll like! Awww 🙂 hehe! Aw my pleasure Carol that’s the most flattering thing in the world to hear 🙂

    I absolutely LOVE this fragrance, and wish I had the money to buy the full size during the VIB sale. even with he 20% off, I can’t swing it. I will however be buying a smaller size, and cannot wait to receive it so I can bathe in it. It’s absolutely lovely!!

    I am not a fan of sweet fragrances; however I will make an exception. The vanilla did not gag me like other brands. Mmmm is long-lasting and a worthy replacement to Romantina. Your musing of this new fragrance is spot on.

    I purchased this recently (-20% @luckyscent) a first for me…hadn’t tried anything from this niche line. I am thrilled with it and the pretty, colorful bottle! I used Prada Candy and La Vie Est Belle at one time, MMMM… is softer and very nicely done for a gourmand.
    During the winter months, I really enjoy this type of fragrance. 🙂
    I was looking for some reviews on this perfume and enjoyed reading yours!

    • Isabella Muse

      ah! how did you get 20% off at luckyscent! They never have a sale! OMG! 😀 Aw thank you! So glad you liked it. I’m one of the first that doesn’t quite love Prada Candy but I do like La Vie Est Belle, I think MMMM is a lot more playful and not as dark as it. 😀 So glad you enjoyed the post!
