Juliette Has a Gun Calamity J.

Notes: patchouli, iris, amber, musk, vanilla infusion

Calamity J. opens up with a breath of powder followed by a cool iris note. The coolness quickly fades and is replaced by a beautiful sweet vanilla amber - but not too sweet, not too vanilla, and not too amber. Eventually it's more ambery than vanilla-y, with an underpinning of musk and patchouli.

Speaking of patch, I think I notice it more in Calamity J. when I apply it sparingly as opposed to when I apply it more heavily. It's there in both cases, but it's more pronounced in a lighter application.

Get this: apparently Calamity J. is "a masculine inspired fragrance exclusively dedicated to women, Calamity J. embodies a unique type of femininity. Creator Romano Ricci envisioned an escape from the traditional perfume stereotypes." Seriously? It's a pretty powdery amber that's not turning any stereotypes on their ears. But try it for yourself. I like it a lot.
