Peace in bottle! The scene takes place in the 70’s, in California with flower crowns, pastelshades, super 8 videos and seventies soundtracks, colours of freedom, tolerance, inclusion. Magnolia Bliss is the “Flower Power” embodied in a fragrance.
The bottle is inspired by the colours of freedom and peacefulness with iridescent sunset shades reminiscent of that endless Summer. While keeping the brand’s signature metallic
cap, Juliette has a Gun has added some subtle drawings of Magnolia Flowers.
The fragrance is composed around 3 key ingredients; magnolia essence at the centre of this fragrance, Mirabelle plum (sweet, but not too sweet) and fresh bergamot essence.
All of these notes are built on Juliette has a Gun’s signature Ambery Musky base note. The fragrance inspires the memory of a bucolic summer, those ones that seem to stretch out forever and live on in memories exquisitely.
“For Magnolia Bliss, I imagined a Juliette as free as that famous summer of ‘69. With flower crowns, polaroid flashbacks, pastel shades and seventies soundtracks, my Flower Power heroine falls for the bohemian spirit without forgetting, as always, her rebellious nature. Composed around Magnolia Essence, the fragrance instils the memory of a bucolic summer, while the Mirabelle Plum, slightly gourmand, invites the senses to free themselves… Peace.”

HOW IT WEARS
Magnolia Bliss opens with a sparkling zesty bergamot that feels uplifting, optimistic and carefree. After a while on the skin, the warm and sweet Mirabelle Plum comes through, which allows the star of the show – that majestic Magnolia – to bloom spectacularly. The dry down is a soft, bright, fruity floral scent with that signature Juliette has a Gun Ambroxan base, which helps the fragrance stick to the skin all day long, lasting about 8 hours on the skin.
We love how bright and happy Magnolia Bliss is – it’s such a joyful representation of the Magnolia. Sweet yet fresh, this scent transports us to a tranquil garden, sipping a glass of fruity champagne under dappled sunlight peeking through the branches of a Magnolia tree.
