Juliette Has a Gun

Birchbox Breakdown

When perfumer Romano Ricci set out to create an elegant ode to the classic rose, his noble intentions were foiled by a lab technician who accidently added too much cetalox, a synthetic substitute for grey amber, to the mix. The serendipitous mistake turned out for the best, since it resulted in Mad Madame, a bewitching blend of sophisticated notes and modern musky scents.

How it Works

Top notes of rose, freesia, and black currant open up to earthy wood notes (the result of that happy initial mishap). Balancing the sweet floral scents are base notes of white musk, tolu balsam, and vanilla absolute. Plus, the eye-catching oxblood red bottle will look smashing on your vanity.

How to Use

Remove the top from the chic red bottle and spritz onto pulse points: wrists, elbows, neck, or even behind your knees.

A spicy, rosy experience

I got the sample of Mad Madame and I absolutely fell in love. It had a very interesting mix of rose and spice. I have never, ever liked a floral fragrance before! I was surprised by my addiction to this perfume. Not only that, I would put it on before my 11 hour shift at work, come home and I'd still smell the perfume. Would highly recommend.

LOVE THIS SCENT!
Purchased

I am a big fan of this scent. I carry the sample around with me so I have it on the go and wear it daily. It is an all year around scent and good for any occasion.

In love!

Incredible scent to this perfume! And how funny it was all by mistake. It turned out to be a very fortunate one and for that I'm grateful! Love it!

love!

I am not a perfume wearing girl.
I received this, and smelled it....hmmmm...not perfume-y, not flowery, not sweet....then I tried it- wow!! It smells so good on, almost like a men's cologne, but not quite. Definitely NOT girly, but very, very sexy..suffice to say, have gotten many compliments when wearing this!!

My new favorite!

I love this - would never have come across it if it didn't come in my sample box. Thank you! I purchased it and use it all the time. It's my favorite everyday scent.

love the scent but very expensive

I recieved a sample and I loved it, I was going to order it when I was shocked at how much it was. This scent is uniquely amazing in my opinion. I just wish it wasn't so expensive. I'll probably never get it because of the price. : /

Nothing special

Didn't care for this scent. Nothing very unique or special about this perfume. Floral scent was a bit too strong for me.

LOVE

this perfume smells amazing. a little bit goes a very long way. the price for a full sized bottle is a bit much though that i would probably never buy the bottle at that price

Different Smell

This product is either one you will love or dislike. It is definitely not for everyone. I would suggest testing it out before buying.
