Hi Lovers Of New!
My mate Thierry from City Perfume has an exclusive range in store currently. It’s the Shakespeare Perfume range and it is seeing like hot cakes. Though the brand is not doing outrageous, challenging or ground breaking fragrances it is making wearable and comfortable scents just a cut above the designer and much of the niche. They have also kept the price under $200 for 100ml, practically a bargain nowadays.
The packaging and bottle design is luxurious and really beautifully thought out. These beauties will make perfect gifts, especially for people who love perfume but haven’t dived right down the rabbit hole yet.
Romeo & Juliette by Shakespeare Perfume
City Perfume gives these featured accords:
Top: Orange, lemon, bergamot
Base: Amber, white musk, Madagascar vanilla
Romeo & Juliet has a citrus opening with a woodsy popcorn backbeat. I smell some pepper too. Utterly unisex perfume and presentation but the company sells it towards the women. I’m sure that any guy trying it will feel perfectly comfortable.
The fruits seems like pear and apple and are not strong or ultra sweet, more like a wash. There are hints of Guerlain poking through the heart of Romeo & Juliet yet without the full on sweetness of candy or bakery
The base seems to be a nutty, praline like amber. No, not praline. Nougat. Yep, nougat, amber and laundry musks. I cannot honestly pinpoint it but my guess is ambroxan with some bells & whistles.
City Perfume has $189/100ml
Don’t forget the 10% Discount Code in the side column.

30 thoughts on “Romeo & Juliette by Shakespeare Perfume GIVEAWAY”
I follow via email mainly.
Oh, Caliban, of course!!!
I follow via email & FB. I think Ophelia would make for an interesting fragrance.
Heeley has already done Ophelia Monica.
Have not heard of this line before, sounds nice!
Puck – but according to fragrantica there is a Puck’s Potion by La Fleur by Livvy.
I follow by e-mail. Because I think it makes a great perfume name I’d pick Desdemona. 🙂
You had me at ‘Romeo and Juliet!’ I love this question. Maybe Beatrice from Much Ado. Or Titania the fairy queen. Follow by email. 🙂
I pick Portia for my Shakespeare character and I follow via email.
I follow by email. I’d like to smell a Lady Macbeth scent. 🙂
What do you think, Tara C? Lots of blood and the salt of tears?
I follow via email.
I’d love a fragrance based on “that serpent of old Nile,” Cleopatra. I think maybe Strange Invisible Perfumes had one, but I never smelled it.
She’s my favorite Shakespeare character, in my favorite Shakespeare play.
Come to think of it, “Serpent of Old Nile” would be a good name for it. Khyphi and skank.
Thanks for this opportunity, Portia, and what a great question! I follow by email.
Such great responses already … I would try any of those suggested.
For me, I’m thinking Viola. She’s strong, brave, and unconventional. Who could ask for more in a fragrance?
One vote for Lady Macbeth! Following via email.
Following via email. Thanks for this nice draw.
Followed by email Lady MacBeth scent perfume
Portia(The Merchant of Venice) and Kate(The Taming of the Shrew). Women with insight and spunk. I follow by email. Thanks for the draw.
How about the ruthless killer queen in Cymbaline? Plus, I think “Queen Cymbaline” would be a great name for a fragrance! 🙂 I follow via email and FB.
Speaking of ruthless queens, how about the vengeful one in Titus Andronicus, Tamora? That would be a great name for a fragrance.
I follow via email.
I think Rosalind from As You Like It would be an interesting choice for a unisex perfume, given she spends most of the play disguised as a man!
I follow by email.
Hello! The whole Shakespeare thing. Hmmn, where to start? Ultimately I would love to sniff something based on Kate from The Taming of the Shrew. One feisty woman! I follow APJ via email.
I would have chosen Romeo but he has been done already. Not familiar with Shakespeare’s works, just the names of his plays such as Hamlet. I follow APJ by email and FB.
So many memorable characters to choose from. I think I might choose Falstaff. I’d see it as a boozy, woody, animalistic scent that sticks around for ever before fading gently with a smile.
I follow via FB.
Hi! I follow via Facebook. May I have a perfume based on Banquo’s Ghost from Macbeth, please? It’d have to contain a witch’s brew of Scottish heather, wormwood, and a spectral icy iris.
I’d chose Cordelia. I love King Lear, so that would be my scent. It’s not the name so much, and I suppose Cordelia sounds a bit restrained which I’m not exactly, but she has a quiet fierce, dogged loyalty, dignity, and fearlessness. I follow by email—thank you for the drawing.
Ah – what a wonderful question! I choose Prospero from The Tempest!
I follow by email.
I say Othello – a dark perfume about the destructive force of jealousy and suspicion.
I follow APJ via email.
I second a lot of choices from above (Beatrice, Prospero, Lady M.), mine is the witty Viola from the Twelfth Night.
I follow via email and FB. Thank you for the draw!
King Lear sounds like a grand name for a masculine (?) perfume. I follow via your blog and email.
The diabolical Iago from Othello. I’d love to see how he might be interpreted through scent. I follow by email. Thanks for the draw!
Great choice, Lena. I was considering Iago but kinda got scared of his fiendish nature 🙂
