Juliette Has A Gun Moscow Mule
Moscow Mule by Juliette Has a Gun conveys summertime fun and is equally perfect for both women and men. This vibrant shared fragrance shares notes with the cocktail of the same name.

It’s bright and crisp as it moves into apple essence and jasmine. Dry woody base notes created by the popular perfume molecules of norlimbanol finish it and give a lovely softly lingering amber scent. Fun fact: The top of the bottle is done in copper as a tip of the hat to the Moscow Mule cocktail which is always served in a copper mug.
