Calamity J by Juliette Has a Gun
LS has Calamity J listed as unisex and advertised as a masculine fragrance dedicated to women. I find it leans more feminine than anything, but the question is would I wear it? Let's see...........
The initial impression of the scent is a sheer, woody patchouli note. This opening
The vanilla note doesn't sit idly by for any length of time. Just when I'm grooving on the iris-amber, it's inserting itself into the composition. It goes well with the iris-amber and this is where it truly veers off the masculine path into androgynous territory. I have to say here that I never thought this was very ( conventionally ) masculine to begin with. The opening volley was very diplomatic where gender is concerned, but after that it's up to the wearer to decide whether or not it suits them.
Now, would I wear it? Yes, I would. It's a nice fragrance and while it leans a bit feminine for my usual taste, I would most definitely give it full wearings if I had a bottle. Would I purchase a bottle? No, not a full bottle, but an adequate decant would certainly be acceptable.
So far, I have been pleased with the few samples from Juliette Has a Gun. I recommend a sample wear of Calamity J to see if it works for you. Good is good however and I have no reservations about giving Calamity J a thumbs up.
