I’ve been dying to try some of the scents from this line. I wish I had gone with my gut and started with the Juliet Has A Gun Not a Perfume. But, what can I say... I totally cheaped out, cuz I didn’t want the $5 up charge, on my first order. I was initially, a bit afraid of the fact that patchouli seemed, from the write up and reviews to play such a significant role in this perfume, but was drawn to the combination of vanilla and Amber. That along with the killer name, Lady Vengeance, swayed me. Again, wish I’d gone with my gut. The thing about this perfume that I find confusing, is that, I don’t completely hate it. And I also, don’t completely like it. It seems to swap dominant notes throughout the day. But not in any uniform way. I’ll catch a whiff of myself and almost really like it, and then I get hit with the patchouli. Or it’s all patchouli and rose, and I’ll wish I hadn’t sprayed it on at all, and then a few hours later, it’s almost likable. Even my fiancé couldn’t decide if he liked it or hated it. Although, that fact alone, sorta qualifies as a check in the dislike box. His response was, “I don’t know. Like... I ...(perplexed look), yeah, I don’t know. But I don’t think so.”. I will say that it feels like a good quality perfume, if that makes sense. At its least enjoyable, I never smell the cheap chemical/metal note, that you get with a cheapy drugstore perfume. And it’s got amazing longevity. Gave it a several day chance, even combined it with other scents and lady vengeance ALWAYS ended up the dominant smell. Still, the experience hasn’t been enough to force me to abandon this line completely. Going to try some others. My signature scent for YEARS, was Victoria’s Secret Rapture. Once it was discontinued, I was heartbroken. So, if anybody has some good recommendations that remind them of that scent (as I haven’t found a thing even remotely close, even tried something called Scentmatchers, which was a DISMAL failure. Twice. Do not, I repeat, do not make the same mistake. Their awful!), I’m open to suggestions! Lol
Rapture was my favorite too!! I wish they would bring that back instead of releasing another bombshell whatever!!! I wish I had read this, because I JUST ordered Rapture and Cher's Uninhibited from Scentmatchers YESTERDAY!! Bye Bye $100..
It's a niche perfume not a drugstore perfume so that's why it doesn't smell cheap
