Juliette Has a Gun Vanilla Vibes Is On My Summer Fragrance Wish List or Try It Free!

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 🙂

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. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    Romano Ricci is another one for your YHL (young hottie list.). He’s also the great grandson of Nina Ricci, so being a nose is in his genes. L’Air du Temps maybe very old lady by today’s standards, but for me it’s an emotional classic. My dad (R.I.P. 1971) chose it for me. This sounds like the kind of vanilla I could get behind, as the sweet/gourmand has been downplayed. Thanks.

      LOL! that came out of nowhere ;-D If you life by any chance involves naps, more than 6 hours asleep, and a stress-free job I’m willing to trade with you anytime ;-D

    Count me intrigued! This sounds interesting and I will be sure to check it out when it makes its way to Sephora. As always, thanks for the information. Safe travels to CA!

    Sephora is giving out a pretty decent size sample of this right now… It’s pretty yummy smelling 🙂
    Code is Goodvibes if anybody wants one!

    Hmmm… what does sea salt smell like, and how would it make vanilla any better? 🙂 Enjoy your travels, Muse!! And let us know what you think of this stuff!! I think I might like it – I’m a big fan of vanilla, but not the sweet, foody type… I may have to get something from sephora just to get the sample of this! 😀 (yeah, I’m dumb like that…..)

      good question lol! I think for me it’s aquatic, ozonic, marine notes. So that might be what we get here. Thanks dear <3! I absolutely will!!!!!!!!!!!!! Haha I am too so I'm dumb too! hehe!

    I got my sample this morning and it is large! 5ml. The travel size bottle is 7.5ml just to give you a comparison. Very pleasantly surprised….and it smells lovely. Very soft and soothing to me. Nothing super unique but I liked it enough to buy a bottle after wearing it for a few minutes.
