Juliette Has a Gun Vanilla Vibes is the niche house’s newest perfume for Summer 2019 that’s available at sephora.com today! I was tempted to order this from LuckyScent without spelling it but I’m headed to CA shortly so, I can drop by there and take a little sniff before I indulge!
Update: Thanks so much to Joi for telling me about a promo code to try a free sample of this new fragrance. Simply use code Goodvibes at checkout on sephora.com and a free sample of Vanilla Vibes will be added to your cart! Enjoy!
I love the name but I don’t think it’s actually gourmand vanilla that will smell like cake and buttercream icing! This is a natural vanilla mixed with sandalwood and sea salt. These notes seem to add a beachy element to the fragrance.
Also, the creator hints that it isn’t all vanilla with the quote below:
“Wanting to work with vanilla for some time and challenged by not being a huge fan of sweet notes, I needed to find a twist. I chose sea salt, which made the vanilla far from overwhelming—more elegant.”—Romano Ricci, Perfumer
I’m quite intrigued by the sea salt aspect! Some folks reported the fragrance has an aquatic opening with a vanilla dry down that’s spicy and tropical. I’ll have to see for myself.
The bottle is probably the most interesting aspect of the scent. The gradient shades of blue and pink are simply gorgeous! The house has been getting quite creative with their bottles lately haven’t they?
Juliette Has a Gun Vanilla Vibes will be available to purchase shortly at Sephora. Do you think you’ll indulge?
P.S. Speaking about Summer, aquatic notes, etc…! Has anyone seen Blue My Mind!? It literally blew my mind. It’s a pretty weird coming of age story about a girl who turns into a mermaid. Watch it! No one I know has seen it yet! I need to discuss it with someone 🙂
