Description
She fascinates, entertains, provokes. And no one is left indifferent. While the whispers gather in her wake, so does the sensual trail of an aphrodisiac perfume… A green chypre fragrance revolving around the metallic Rose Oxyde, the Blackcurrant bud Absolute, and the woody-modern Ambroxan.

I love hot and spicy scents. This was okay. Lasted all day and got slightly sweeter as the day went on. There was a small hint of 'older lady' that I wasn't a fan of.

It has a really strong smell that reminds me of bad breath...I think that might be musk. It starts to smell nice after a few hours. I don't hate it but I would not recommend it either.

I gave it a 3 because I honesty can not figure out if I like it or not. Its very spicey, as soon as you put it on ya feel like, "uh oh... what did I just do". At least thats how I felt. But after it dies down its not bad I did sorta like it but I'm not in love with it. We were going out to eat and I asked my fam what they thought and my brother said he thought it was his Cologne.

This is one of the most intriguing perfumes I have smelled. When I first spritzed my wrist, it was a green, rosy jasmine. It was unusual and lovely. Then it slowly morphed into an overwhelming freesia, which I did not like. At the same time, when I would move my arm, I would catch the most beguiling scent. Sniffing my wrist, it was still freesia. Oddly, up close it was too much, but at a distance it was beautiful. This perfume grows on me the more I wear it. I will be buying a bottle when the sample runs out. It's an unusual perfume perfect for autumn.

Doesn't work for me. It starts out aggressively musky, then dries down to a very woody chypre, almost no discernible floral notes. The heavy patchouli note tips it into an almost hippy-dippy mood. Heavy & wintry.

This is one of my staple scents, it's not for the faint of heart. It is very sexy, and MEN love this smell. It's funny because I love this smell, I wear it a LOT... Woman never compliment me with this on, but I get stopped my at least two men everyday who say What do you have on, it smells so good... One man even had me help him order it for his wife! It defiantly does it for the opposite sex - I personally don't wear it for that but my boyfriend LOVES this smell on me as much as every other man who stops me and asked what I am wearing

I'm surprised by the other reviews- I loved this one! This is my first Scentbird perfume, and I have to say, I am very impressed. This is a long lasting scent, and a little goes such a long way. I know even in the small bottle it will last a long time. With that being said, it may be considered a "more mature" scent, but as with everything, I think that depends on your body chemistry. I am in my 20's and I love how it smells on me. If you're looking for a long lasting, feminine scent, definitely check this one out!

A lovely stronger scent from JHAG. It strikes first with the floral fruity notes but as soon as it dries down on me it gets a very nice oud musk going on with a bit of the blackcurrant note left. From further away it keeps the floral notes. I'm not a huge fan of floral, but this is a complex floral that I enjoy without seeming too young or overly girly. It would be a great date night scent, I find it very enticing with a "dangerous" edge. Would not recommend this for younger women who don't enjoy strong scents, but it is by no means an "old lady" scent...it feels classic but edgy. I'd recommend this for gals 25+ unless you are very into this style of fragrance or really enjoy strong notes. After awhile on skin, it fades down to just the musky oud which I enjoy a lot.

I'd been dying to try this niche brand but the full bottles are just too pricey for me to commit to without being able to try a scent for a few days. I find some juices change on me from day to day until it "settles" on me somewhat so I don't trust spritzes or strips. This fragrance has been a bit bipolar on me for a couple of days but let me say that Madame has me in her spell and I'm nuts for her! First, she hit me with roses- not bright, sunny ones but deep red/violet ones after a heavy rain. Then, she sneaks in a bit of an ambery-musky vibe with maybe some tuberose laying in wait. The dry down is both lovely and persistent and longevity is incredible. I could go on about Madame but I'll just say this is not a light, shy fragrance. I am obsessed!

So far I have not been impressed with 'Juliette has a Gun's' line of perfumes. At least Mad Madame is less offensive than Lady Vengeance. I was afraid of the castoreum would bring a profound fecal smell, it is under control and only adds a musky animalistic scent. The rose oxide is sparkling at first and slightly overwhelmed with alcohol burn but dies in the dry down. Finally this settles into a generic pleasantness that has a herbal muskiness like hay on a dewy morning tossed with decaying blooms of tuberose. The giant sillage in the beginning fades fast but the slightly below average sillage lasts forever.

I was anxious to try this as I LOVE Juliette Has a Gun's Lady Vengeance and have worn it for tears. Well, Mad Madame has the same beautiful rose base as Lady Vengeance, but where LV is a clean, smooth scent, Mad Madame is much more animalistic (due to the castoreum and musk, I'm sure.) I kind of feel like MM is the skanky sister of the pure innocent LV. I like MM well enough to wear it, but I don't think I would buy it. Instead I would spend the money to buy more LV.

TERRIBLE!!! Can I give no hearts?! Being the grandson of Nina Ricci I thought, yeah, give this line a try!! I chose the wrong one, because not only is it strong and NEVER dissipates, but it smells like swamp butt on my skin! Like some 250 lb old lady forgot to wipe her butt all the way and this was the result after mixing with her god awful perfume. YUCKY! Anyone got a fire hose to pressure wash this crap off???? Even tried layering with other perfumes. Generally, if I don't like it as is and layer Jessica Simpson Fancy Love over it, the nasty evens out to tolerable. Not so on this one. Blechsville

wow, what an unusual scent. it has a lot going on... almost an "everything but the kitchen sink" quality but it still works somehow. definitely not for the faint of heart but if you're looking for something really peerless, this might be one to try.

It's a bit too strong and not one that I would pick or buy again.

I feel like some notes took center stage where they'd best make a cameo; overpowering the softer side.

Very masculine. Not a huge fan.

Disappointed in this one. I own and love Lady Vengeance by JHAG and really thought I would like this. While it is similar it has a very sharp unpleasant note to my nose...maybe too musky. Couldn't wait to wash it off!!
