I’ve got a few minutes to talk about perfume today, so I’m going to talk about Juliette Has A Gun Mad Madame. I’m quickly coming to the end of this sampler, which has me excited for the next one. I have thought these JHAG fragrances are ok, but nothing has captured me like the ELDO sampler did.
Audacious and scandalous, this green chypre fragrance revolves around metallic notes of rose oxyde, blackcurrant bud absolute, and woody, modern ambroxan. Fusing explosive and feminine traits, it leaves no doubt about its intentions. Mad Madame has the knack of getting herself talked about, and she likes it.
“For Mad Madame I wanted to pay tribute to a woman who dares, a woman slightly more mature than the previous episodes, but by no means better behaved”—Romano Ricci, Brand Founder and Perfumer
Rose Oxyde, Blackcurrant Bud Absolute, Ambroxan.
Extravagant. Audacious. Sophisticated.
They really love their ambroxan at this house. If you liked Armani Si but thought it was too sharp, this might be for you. All in all, I prefer Si because it had more nuance. The rose in Juliette Has A Gun Mad Madame is between sweet and dirty, but it doesn’t last on my skin. The main standout on me is the ambroxan, so it smells like many of their other perfumes but with an earthy metallic twist with a hint of sugared fruit and floral. Needless to say, I thought I would be very much into this, but I’m not. Perhaps it is my chemistry or that it was too hot out.
This isn’t bad or good for me. I don’t think it agrees with my personal chemistry because I see tons of raves and comments about the length and development. Juliette Has A Gun Mad Madame is not something I’d want a bottle of but I will try the sample again once is cooled down here.
Have you tried Juliette Has A Gun Mad Madame? If so let me know how you like it!
