"Initially created as a limited edition of 999 examples, its success and sophistication have made Oil Fiction an original and highly sought after perfume. "
What started as a 999 Edition Size limited release turned into a "Luxury Collection" offering from Juliette Has a Gun. Inspired by Arabian tales of knights, Oil Fiction is a voluptuous fragrance. A royal elixir where the red gold of Saffron blends with the yellow gold of Amber.
Here's what you're getting in this mysterious and exotic fragrance: Amber accords, Iris absolute, Tuberose Absolute, Jasmine, Absolute bergamot, Ylang Ylang, , Labdanum, Papyrus, Saffron, Patchouli, Ambroxan, Vanilla and Sandalwood.
Don't let the marketing/packaging fool you this isn't a deep amber or heavy at all. It's a strange and unusual fragrance. The marriage of opposite notes in this fragrance makes it truly something unique and special. It's a clean and refreshing scent. It makes you feel fresh and invigorated. Completely Unisex and doesn't lean to either side, just a neutral unisex fragrance. If the movie Vanilla Sky was a fragrance it would be Oil Fiction, it's just like a lucid dream.
The presentation box is a gorgeous touch for a "Luxury" item. There are more offerings from JHaG in the "Luxury Collection" , White Spirit, Moon Dance and Into the Void.
Overall House of Parfum gives this fragrance a total 9/10 overall rating for sillage, longevity, and scent.
