Initiated to fashion by his grad grandmother Nina and to perfumery by his grandfather Robert (creator of “L’air du temps”), Romano has been surrounded by fashion and creation since childhood. Grateful to his family heritage, he launches “Juliette has a Gun” in December 2006, an original brand dedicated to women, willing to open a new type of elegance in the niche perfumery world.
Metaphor for the perfume, weapon of seduction, or simple accessory of bluff, the “Gun” essentially symbolizes the liberation of women towards men… and sometimes with an aftertaste of revenge…
The creative Romano Ricci runs the Maison Juliette has a Gun personally, designing products and fragrances himself. Tradition with a zest of provocation, Romano is restoring perfumes to what they should always be: emblems of style and originality.
About the brand
Born and raised independently in France, between Paris and Grasse, niche perfume brand “Juliette has a Gun” is more than just a brand, it’s a Leitmotiv.
We believe in women empowerment and a free femininity, sometimes irreverent, confident in herself… and in her power of seduction. One that also understand that wearing an original signature scent, goes far beyond the simple fact of smelling just “nicely” … It’s a statement. An affirmation of who you are. We are independent, old and hard to catch, just like you!
Romano Ricci is the great grandson of fashion legend Nina Ricci
The collection comprises over 15 scents and they continue to develop new fragrances
The gun’s a metaphor for a woman’s freedom to seduce.
I want the women wearing my perfumes to feel confident, sexy and proud of their femininity.
