Juliette Has a Gun - Not a Perfume
What do you wear? ...Not a Perfume
A fragrance made out of a single element called Ambroxan. Usually used as a back note in perfumery, Romano Ricci decided for once that it would play the lead role… because it is one of his favourite ingredients.
Another advantage of this particular composition is that it is entirely allergen free. The result is a minimalist, elegant and pure fragrance.
A formula, C16 H28 O. Also known as Cétalox or Ambrox, depending on the laboratory which makes it, Ambroxan is a molecular creation that comes from organic research. Developed by Firmenich in the 1950s to replace grey amber, while it doesn’t smell like it, it is regularly used as a base note in perfume composition. Its complex structure is known to exhale musk, woody and animal tonalities. A sensuality which evokes the smell of the skin with which it becomes part of. It’s a molecular creation and it’s high price can go beyond that of a natural rose.
