Juliette Has A Gun Mad Madame description

If you are already a fan of Juliette’s anti-perfumes, such as their intimate new release, Anyway, or the sheer and transparent Not a Perfume, Mad Madame will take you on entirely different journey.

Mad Madame is a somber, heady and almost gothic evening perfume with an eclipsed moonlight profile. There are only three notes: a metallic rose, darkly ripe black currants, and a thin veneer of…

A Mystery
I don’t hate the scent. I don’t love it either. In an odd way, I think I may like it but not really. Right out of the bottle, it is way too strong but it dries down quickly and is much more tolerable but I am not sure it is something I would wear regularly. It definitely has a heavy note of rose and it has a very vintage vibe to it. I like heavier perfumes but I don’t think this works for me.

You decide....
For me this is definitely a fall-early spring scent. It has a freshness to it but very heady complexity to it that will leave no one in doubt that you are wearing perfume. Could be a signature scent. I look forward to trying their other scents after this. Unique in a sea of not so unique.

Musky, Sexy Date scent
One whiff made me think of a sexy date night night, but it's Saturday morning and I'm in my pajamas. Not an everyday fragrance. Very musky.

The name says it all
I really liked this perfume for the fact that it smelled exactly like what you would expect from a title "Juliette Has a Gun" with it's heavy floral scents and secondary scents that are somewhat metallic and remind you of gunpowder without smelling like a smoking gun. If you're into contemporary scents like this, it's a good one for you! However, if you're like me and you're more into classically girly scents picking a floral based perfume with more sweet undertones would be better suited to your tastes.

A truly wearable Chypre
This is my third JHAG fragrance and by far my favorite, although I love Lady Vengeance for different reasons. To me, Mad Madame comes closest to the promise of the brand's edgy marketing, but takes it up a notch for a more mature audience (note: I am not calling this 'stinky old lady grandma perfume,' I'm only saying it's more complex and sophisticated than some of the other offerings). Mad Madame has JHAG's signature rose, but it's coated with a blast of bright and mineral-y ambroxan that announces in no uncertain terms this is no sweet and gentle flower. The rose quickly opens to a rich, woody, slightly skanky Chypre with a hint of overripe fruit and indoles (jasmine?)—truly gorgeous. The animalic note isn't overdone, but there's a definite dirty side here. To me, this scent conjures up an exotic gypsy with masses of black hair, heavily kohled eyes, gauzy skirts, and rows of twinkling gold bracelets. Now I, personally, am nothing like that person in real life, but I absolutely love the way she smells and her sense of freedom and mystery. Some reviewers have mentioned this is a heavy fragrance, but I don't perceive it that way. It's a substantial scent, yes, but nothing about it is obnoxious or overbearing. And the musky, woody dry down has a tender side to it that's definitely worth the wait. While it's totally appropriate as a date-night scent, I would definitely wear this during the day in rotation with some of my other signature perfumes. I give it a 6.5/10 sillage, 8/10 longevity (this is no Montale rose, but it still has lasting power), and 9/10 "wow" factor.

Thorny Rose
Not typically a fan of rose perfumes, and I nearly scrubbed this one off my skin the first time worn. I'm glad I weathered its harsh opening, because one this one settles down... wow! Mad Madame is a lady that shows her true colors once you forgive her initial madness. A beautiful blend--sexy, classy, staying power, and a scent that draws compliments from men and women alike. Madame is unique, and has become my signature scent.

Not my cup of tea
This is a very lovely perfume but it's just not my personality. I see this as a date night super musky fragrance. It's more mature than I would prefer. maybe in a few decades this will be more my style but at the moment when I smell this I think 1920's speakeasy.

Mad Madame is mad indeed. It’s definitely feminine and floral, but there are unmistakable masculine notes that are equally tantalizing. As a woman, I love it. If it were on my man, I’d love it just the same-maybe more.

Nightmare Rose
Smells like rose liquor to me but my boyfriend says he loves it and that it smells like flowers. Hence I give it a 3 5 from him and 1 from me. It actually made my nose burn and gave me a headache.also made my eyes burn I do have bad allergies The rose smell was not a pleasant rose smell. Too caustic. But it is long lasting and very Unique. You would have to try it to see if you love or hate it. I’ll pair it with something sweeter to dilute it. It does make a statement

More of an older scent.
I don’t hate this but I don’t love it because it seems like it should be worn by someone 50 or older. It’s strong and it seems to last. I’m really going to have to layer the scent to ever get use out of it. It’s a heavy floral scent.

Nostalgic
Very impressed with how long this lasts! First off, this is a very mature scent. Musky rose and a light spice. It’s very warm and almost pungent. I absolutely love it because it reminds me of my grandmother and older aunt. It probably best suited for winter. Someone had mentioned it smelled like white diamonds. I’m not positive on that because I never had white diamonds. This will be something i wears occasionally or for holidays!

For the woman in pink nightgown; but not for the woman in a leather catsuit
It had me at the name. With something called "Mad Madame" and "Juliette Has A Gun," I was so ready for a scent that exuded badassery. This perfume, sadly, does not. If this perfume was personified, it would be a young woman as sweet as a lamb, a little shy with a cute giggle. So while this scent isn't a bad one, by any means, I wanted this scent to represent a woman who'd don herself head to toe in leather who'd kick a catcaller in his special parts. This ain't it.

I’m not a huge fan of floral but this scent is complex, with the floral notes mostly settling in the rose category. It’s a bit darker and spicier, which I like, and very unique. Love it, and will be ordering more!
