Lipstick Fever naturally focuses on the historic notes used in lipsticks : Iris, Violet absolute and Raspberry. Enhanced with woody notes (Patchouli, Cedarwood) to give it a little refinement and to echo the leather of the handbag so often inseparable from it. A contemporary composition, gourmand, ultimately feminine.

HOW IT WEARS
Lipstick Fever is both musky and powdery with a fruity playfulness to it. The Iris, Violet and Raspberry notes create an old world elegance that is reminiscent of that classic ‘lipstick scent’. The Raspberry note is also quite prominent and brings this perfume into the modern world perfectly. We find that Lipstick Fever lasts around 8 hours, it mellows out beautifully yet it definitely lingers just the right amount of time on the skin.
We love the glamorous nostalgia that Juliette has a Gun has created with Lipstick Fever. This takes us to memories of playing amongst the adult wonders of our mother’s, and our grandmother’s makeup collections – particularly their lipsticks. That powdery, dryness from the Iris and Patchouli gives such a beautiful musky elegance to Lipstick Fever. This perfume feels reminiscent of the old world movie starlets it’s the kind of vintage lipstick scent we imagine the most glamorous women wearing in the 1950’s.
