Wow what a pretty seductive brew! I can see Lady Vengeance being my new goto for nighttime fragrances. The patchouli is not too sweet and the rose is bulgarian which is the queen of roses. I adore this.... very weable, as are all JHAG fragrances. If you are a rose or patchouli lover make sure to try this as it's addictive in a purely adult way. Many full bottles coming my way. Enjoy!
Rochas Tocade with a heavy dose of Sweet Tarts! Unlike the majority of other reviews, I don't get dark, sultry rose, nor is the patchouli particularly noticeable. And I'd notice--I detest patch. Very pleasant, perky-without-being-teenybopperish perfume. Lasting power was about 5 hours.
Runs about $85/50ml, $110/100ml. I'd buy it if I could find it at a discount. Also comes in a bullet-shaped purse spray that is to die for cute.
This is a great dirty rose with a very.... vanilla-y dry down. It starts off really strong with the rose and patchouli and kind of a ... harsh scent. But it dries down to a soft rose. I suppose it's not for the sweet and bubbly type. It seems kind of dark and dangerous. It can be a little overpowering so I usually don't wear it for the day. I find myself saving this for evening wear or special occasions. Also, if you like the top notes I notice that rose stays much better when sprayed on clothes verses on my skin. For me, this scent works better on clothing than on my skin directly. I have no idea why this might happen.
Definitely a rose on the dark side. This is not for you if you're looking for sth sweet/ bright/ light/ happy - you can try Miss Charming from the line though. She has a sharp crispy edge when sniffed directly but itnerestingly, it's gone right after sprayed on skin. Scent on skin is smooth actually. Despite dark with depth, it's still cleany done. Not cloying or choking and not over the fence to become cheap smelling.
It reminds me of an older fragrance. Gucci or possibly a mainstream fragrance? I'm very much reminded of something from the 1970s but I just can't put my name on it. On my skin, the rose is less apparent with patchouli front & center but when I smell my sleeve the rose was definately there. While I like the scent ok, I find it too strong for daily wear. I wish the rose and patchouli was muted a bit &/or there was a bit of fresh note added to cut the cloying aspect of this fragrance. Good staying power and sillage even if sparingly applied.
This is a really full on overpowering rose that reminds me of someone's pot pourri from the 80's. After about a hour a masculine note is there, maybe its the patch vanilla combo but I still dont like it, then it dries down to a softer rose tinged with vanilla, not bad but such a boring fragrance really.
Seduced by the fun and feisty-sounding name, if I'm honest - a nod to Korean director Park Chan-wook's 'Vengeance Trilogy'.
LV is my favourite Juliette fragrance so far (have also tried Citizen Queen - enjoyed the leather, but find the fragrance overall to be a little headache-inducing, even hairspray-esque!?! - and Miss Charming - summery and sugary and girlishly cloying, and so not me!!) LV is a decadent, dark-ish, musky rose that, although maybe derivative, draws lots of compliments.
This smells of pepper, roses, and whisky on my skin at first, then changes into a less "happy" version of Clinique's Happy. Smells badass, but ends up being very conventional in a sparrow tattoo kind of way.
I'm the only one here as I see, who thinks this is similar to Narcisso Rodriguez For Her EDT. But for me, this is just a sweeter, more flowery version of the NR which is way too masculine for me. I find NR masculine, so I like this one better, but still, not FB worthy.
I have fallen hard for this fragrance. I swap very infrequently and haven't fallen for anything in quite awhile. I have to get it; it's such a beautiful, strong, aggresive rose. Its description is right on; yes, it is a rose with the thorns included, and I envisioned these thorns when I first tried it, clueless of what its "official" description was. I will be asking for samples of Miss Charming and Citizen Queen when I order this one!
