What Does Oil Fiction Smell Like

Oil Fiction by Juliette Has A Gun starts off with a bright and zesty kick of Calabrian bergamot, delivering a lively citrus aroma. As the perfume unfolds, it transitions into a heart of floral and oriental notes, where tuberose absolute and ylang-ylang absolute provide a pronounced white floral scent, rich and intoxicating. They are artfully intertwined with resinous amber and the leathery, slightly fruity scent of labdanum, which adds a darker touch to the bouquet. The oriental character is further enhanced by orris absolute's powdery, violet-like scent, while saffron contributes a slightly bitter and spicy facet. Papyrus infuses an unusual, woody note and patchouli contributes an earthy undertone.

In the base, warm, rich sandalwood gives a creamy, smooth, and slightly sweet character to the composition. Ambroxan adds an ambergris-like musky aspect, while bourbon vanilla absolute infuses a sweet, cozy and slightly boozy undercurrent, evoking the feeling of comfort and indulgence. Overall, this perfume can be described as a vibrant, lavish blend of floral, oriental and woody notes, with sweet undertones.

Review of Oil Fiction

Oil Fiction by Juliette Has A Gun is a fragrance that truly stands out in a crowd. Released in 2013, this unisex scent seems to have a special appeal to women, with its enchanting swirl of floral, spicy, and oriental notes that create a rich and complex aroma.

The scent opens with a vibrant hint of Calabrian bergamot that instantly captures attention, paving the way for the heart of the fragrance which is filled with the intoxicatingly rich and velvety tuberose absolute, ylang-ylang absolute, and amber absolute. These notes are wonderfully harmonized with the woody, sweet, and resinous undertones, creating an appealing depth to the overall scent profile.

This perfume shines in colder months, perfectly suited for fall and winter seasons. It's a scent that becomes your invisible accessory for evening gatherings or night outs, adding a touch of glamour and mystery to your aura without being overpowering. However, it might be a tad heavy for daily use or business settings, as it leans towards a more leisurely and relaxed vibe.

The longevity of Oil Fiction is praise-worthy, lasting for a substantial amount of time. However, its sillage, or trail left by the perfume, is moderate, making it a better choice for those who prefer a more intimate scent.

In terms of value, Oil Fiction might not take the top spot. Its price point is a bit on the higher side and might not appeal to those on a budget. But if you're willing to invest in a perfume that merges traditional perfume artistry with contemporary appeal, this might be your new favorite.
