Juliette Has a Gun Anyway

Juliette Has a Gun Anyway Cover

The new scent ANYWAY by Juliette has a Gun is different from what you would expect. Romano Ricci surprises with his new creation that brings a breath of freshness, simplicity and softness with the unusual mixture of citrusy and woody-floral components.

It symbolizes simplicity in the face of frivolity with just fifteen ingredients, going right back to basics, only keeping the best. Anyway is a signature fragrance ready to unite with the feminine as much as the masculine.

Iris Prima – The Spirit of the Ballet. Bottled.

Iris Prima Penhaligon's

This morning, I attended a press conference at Jelmoli in Zurich to explore the house’s unique shop concept called SAHLING Düfte and to hear more about the newest fragrance launch of Penhaligon’s London: IRIS PRIMA.

In a unique partnership with English National Ballet, the new scent was created by famous perfumer Alberto Morillas to capture the very essence of ballet.


As most of you know, I have been dancing ballet all my life (here you see me with my daughter) and I had immediately my very own ideas how to put all those amazing things about classical dance in one bottle. From the costumes, to the sets on stage, the theatre make-up and the elegant rehearsal rooms, there are many aspects to consider.

Kris told me that it took one and a half year to develop this amazing new scent. During the process, they met with ballet dancers, went backstage, watched how they prepare themselves, their dedication and passion. The British brand even decided to sponsor two dancers to give them the chance to develop their skills even more.

Jelmoli 2

If you are in Zurich, pay a visit to Jelmoli’s new corner, it is absolutely worth it. The retro-style apothecary furniture is a wonderful backdrop to shop luxurious fragrances.

Besides Penhaligon’s, Sahling Düfte carries Juliette Has a Gun, Annick Goutal, Il Profvmo, Etro and Amouage.

LoL, Sandra
