It’s no secret that Julia Barretto has an obsession with perfumes. In a vlog she uploaded to her Youtube channel back in 2020, the young actress and entrepreneur gave a tour of her spacious walk-in closet, which also included a glimpse of her enviable perfume collection. She explained that her love affair with fragrances started when she was a teenager. “I found so much happiness in scents and I enjoyed just finding the best and right scents for me,” she said. Her love for perfumes even reached a point where every time she would visit a department store, she’d leave the store with three new bottles! As time went by, though, Julia understood the value of money and has since controlled her impulsive shopping urges.
That being said, it comes as no surprise that Julia is now venturing into the perfume business! In a recent post she shared on the ‘gram, Julia teased her followers with her first ever scent, called 1989. The photo shows a clear bottle with a wooden cork cap leaning against a tree branch. It features a minimalist white and brown label. She captions the post, “Can you smell that? Coming very soon. @thejujuclub.co."
We think it's safe to assume that her perfume line will be a subsidiary of her brand, The Juju Club, aptly named Francesca by The Juju Club.
As of writing, Julia has given no further hints yet as to what fragrance notes are in her first-ever perfume release. But if we’re going to take a guess, it would probably have a light, woodsy scent, if we're to base it on the IG photo’s nature-themed shot.
Julia also hasn’t revealed a definitive launch date, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed that it’s sooner rather than later!
