I am a bit undecided about this one. It does smell nice, but like all of the Juliette's it did not last long on my skin. Mad Madame was the third longest lasting out of the discovery kit I purchased. Someone one once asked me what perfume smelled like sex...I think I finally found it. It has to be this one. Something dark, dirty, feminine & will keep pulling you in to sniff some more. Slightly musky smelling with a hint of floral and a soft powder smell. Makes me slightly undecided about whether or not I like it. I may buy it in the future but for now I have purchased another from the brand, continued >>
This is a bold perfume. It's kind of in your face and makes a big statement. I was in love at first sniff. I'm a huge fan of chypre's and woody scents. You can smell the rose but it has this sensual animalistic quality. I just feel extremely feminine while wearing it.
Mad Madame is what I was hoping Vengeance Extreme would smell like.. a dark, sharp, animalic sort of rose. It's mostly red rose, tuberose, dark & animalic musk, and hints of slightly powdery amber (smells like the ambroxan of Not a Perfume) & earthy patchouli on me. Perfumey, intense and womanly. It has sour, sharp qualities to it, but somehow they smell intriguing and mysterious rather than cheap or off. I'd say that it smells like a sexy & dangerous sort of rose perfume.
That said, I know there was some controversy over the promo ads for this scent (women wearing ridiculous facial expressions, tacky clothes, and even tackier real fur coats.. which honestly did kind of turn me off from this brand), but I do really like this fragrance and probably would have purchased a bottle if I weren't so turned off by the fur coat thing. The fur coat issue is why I put 'no' for the would I buy this product again (and this review is based off of a free sample I received). continued >>
