Hi Posse. Moon Dance is the second release in the Juliette Has A Gun Luxury Collection, after the runaway success of Oil Fiction the year before. I have a confession, when ever I read the brands name in my mind I say Juliette Has A Gnu. Can’t help myself. Back in early 2015 Romano Ricci came to Australia to upset his brand and introduce Moon Dance and Gentlewoman, he is funny and sweet. Grandson of Nina Ricci, best buddy and race car driving colleague or Erwin Creed and obviously a sexy cat around town.
Moon Dance by Romano Ricci for Juliette Has A Gun 2014
Parfumo gives these featured accords:
Heart: Rose, Tuberose, Violet
Moon Dance is a bit of a surprise, I’ve had a decent sized decant here but rarely reach for it. I was wandering through my decant boxes earlier this week and it/’s one of the beauties I pulled out to give some skin time to.
Once spritzed Moon Dance throws me cool, waxy, violet tinged white flowers. It’s not tuberose as such but a beautiful amorphous white flower in the radiant style. Patchouli in clean mode gives a subtle depth and darkness like a patina or lacquered finish making the other notes shine all the more brightly.
If you’re looking for a boundary pushing scent then Moon Dance will disappoint. If you want a smoothly crafted, elegant white floral scent that smells beautiful then this could be your bag. It does have excellent sillage for the first hour or so and lasts a few hours. If you love original Elie Saab, L’Artisan Voleur de Roses or Gucci Guilty Woman then I think you will swoon for this.
Did you ever get your sniff on the Juliette has A Gun range? Which ones?
