3.4 out of 5
this was not my favorite
strong, musky, fruity
I love this brand, but not this scent. It is too strong and musky for me and gives me a headache. If it were lighter I would enjoy it.
I either like it and use it all up, or I don't and the bottle is still full months later. this one is full forever. Learning to avoid names I am not familiar with. Every single scent that I "experimented" on was just gross.
Love it !!!!!!
I like all of this brands perfumes!
Not for me
The scent was not for me
reminds me of an old lady
Can be a little strong but lasts all day
Loved this scent!
Not their best, it's a little... rancid, to be honest
Not crazy about this one
Another one that gets compliments
It was fine. A little too floral for me.
Delicious And Different. Smells like true roses
I absolutely love this brand and I I love this perfume but it is very intense
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT
I love this scent and was actually going to reorder but I guess it is no longer offered...
It was ok. Not really my taste.
Dark and Sexy
This smelled and made me feel exactly how it’s described on the profile. I saved it for late night outings when I wanted to look and feel my best.
Smells like bug spray on me! No thanks.
Its way too musky..? Strong scent that stings the nose
it is a little strong if you put it on after you been out of the shower a while but if you put on immediately after you shower it is awesome! Better suited for a woman with an alpha personality.
Smelled like an old lady
On the fence
This was my first Scentbird subscription scent and while I don’t dislike the scent, I don’t find myself reaching for it either. It has very strong floral notes and I would say is too strong for everyday wear but is a good one to mix things up on occasion when going out.

Not like any other ROSE scent!!!
I LOVE this one. May be my favorite from JHAG! Tried elsewhere and it's not your typical rose scent. The black currant and Jasmine give it a dark yet bright, bold feel. It's not a light "pretty" rose scent, but not a heavy, cloying rose-floral either. (unless you are one of those people who always say rose scents smell old-ladyish... If you don't like rose, this still may not be for you) And unlike Mmm and Romantina, which jump from fruity burst at the top, to fruity floral, to warm/earthy vanilla-musk/patchouli-vertiver die downs, this scent remains just a steady bold fruity floral with some dark rose/ jasmine and bold bright black currant mixed in the whole way through. Would definitely buy a full bottle of this one. It's divine!
Good scent but not for me
Got a lot of compliments not overbearing Thankyou
Nursing Home Madame
Think old lady in a nursing home. (emp nursing home) I try to give scents a few days, but couldn’t get beyond the beginning smell. It seemed to last a long time, so thankfully the scent adjusted to my body, but that introductory smell. Y’all! Thankfully I wasn’t around anyone the two days I tried it.

Excuse me Madame
This scent was not for me. At first, it burned my sinuses. There was a sicky sweet overtone that resonated the whole day. I was very disappointed because normally I love patchouli. I also understand that scents smell differently for and on individuals because of their chemistry. Overall, I enjoy the process of receiving scentbird in the mail even though some don't work out. Thank you scentbird!
The scent is too earthy

This does NOT smell like old lady perfume. It is bold and unique. Hard to describe. Very potent!
25 to 34
I like it.
I love this perfume. It's strong without being overpowering.
Love this fragrance
A bit strong
I didn’t really care for this scent. It was very strong and I’m not sure I am smelling roses. Almost feels like I’m wearing my grandmother’s perfume.
the smell was way too strong! but it's last all day!!

Give it a minute!
I initially did not care for this scent at all. Then I gave it a few minutes.. and, YES! I loved the scent that came through. Hard to describe.. a sexy clean. People stop me and ask me what I’m wearing!
Musky smelling. Strong at first but it calms down after awhile to a nice scent.

Can't walk away
Sometimes there are scents you simply can't walk away from...even if you want to. For me this is one of those...along with Lady Vengeance and to a lesser degree... Moscow Mule. There is something earthy and fresh in a wintry sort of way. Such wonderful juxtapositions, dirty and clean...gypsy and socialite...youth and maturity. For me, I think it's too heavy for hot/warm weather. It is complex and PRESENT and I can 100% see where it would seem overwhelming to some but for me...I simply cannot walk away from it. I must have it.
Smells basic and cheap. Very disappointed with this scent.
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.
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.
My favorite scent to date!
Long lasting. Sensual

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.
excellent review! thanx for all the details

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.

Grown up complex scent
If you like Paloma Picasso, you'll love this. Rich and long-lasting. An intriguing scent that attracts intriguing people.

Love this scent!
I love this scent. It's different from the others. It's my new favorite! It lasts all day! It's sensual, mysterious and spicy. I just love it!
