Juliette Has a Gun Magnolia Bliss


WHAT I SMELL:  Magnolia Bliss pulls you in with a fresh and fruity enhanced bergamot that is quickly met with a gorgeous magnolia and a ripe and juicy plum and peach.  It’s lusciously smooth and oh so inviting.  The mixture of florals and fruits are intoxicating and it’s full of vibrant sunshine and a happy demeanor.  After a short time, the rounded fruit and florals begin to tame and move from full juiciness to a sweetened creamy silkiness.  Here the perfume seems to drift happily off the skin with some wonderful projection leaving a trail of positive energy in its wake.  As the perfume continues to settle, a warmed musk adds a wrap of comfort around the pretty magnolia.  Magnolia Bliss is exactly that… pure unadulterated bliss!

From the Juliette Has a Gun website:

Peace in a Bottle:  Here comes Magnolia Bliss, a floral fruity composition, the perfect blend of a Magnolia essence, a juicy Mirabelle Plum, and a fresh Bergamot Essence.
Inspired by the 70’s, freedom, and beach summer sunsets…Peace!

Top note:  Bergamot

Heart Note:  Magnolia Essence, Mirabelle Plum

Bottom Notes:  Musks, Ambroxam

WHAT IT SMELLS LIKE TO ME:  Sun drenched pink magnolias.



BOTTOM LINE:  Magnolia Bliss is just that…pure bliss.  It’s not complicated nor full of surprise developments, but it’s easy to love.  This is a perfume that would work no matter the time of year if you just need to add a bit of positive energy into your life.

  1. I’ll give it a try. A lot from this brand does not work for me, but you make this sound very nice!


  2. Lasting power?


  3. I have had bad experiences with this brand, but this one does sound nice. JHAG perfumes usually last about 2 seconds (the pear one) or they smell like a cheap designer scent on my skin.


    • It seems the brand is a bit polarizing. This to me is the best of the line that I have experienced thus far. My husband really likes the line and especially likes Pear Inc.

      • I loved Pear Inc. on first spraying it on my skin, but a minute later the lovely pear note completely evaporated. Rats! That was a disappointment! I’ll get a free sample of the Magnolia in my next Luckyscent order and maybe I’ll like it.


  4. I should definitely give this one a try if they have it in my Sephora. In general, the line isn’t my favorite, though I enjoy the second decant of Miss Charming.
