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.

Intense

I love this scent! It is complex and intense. It has a lot of depth--not your typical too sweet or too powdery fragrance. It is sophisticated and intriguing.

The best ever

I am obsessed with this smell. It's so sexy and clean and it makes me feel glamorous. I never want to wear another perfume again, but love this enough to try their other scents, too!

Smells like luxury

This just smells like a decadent, luxurious scent. I imagine rocking this scent while on a jet bound for Paris or somewhere far away!

At First I Wasn't Sure, But Then...

I have to say that at first I wasn't sure about the scent. But then when I put it on, I really was surprised at how wonderful it smelled. It has just enough notes to make it last, but not over powering.

Distinctive Perfume Makes an Impression

Perfume is very personal, which is why it is amazing that this one was delivered to my door. It has a deep, complex, distinctive fragrance that stays all day. Perfect for winter, and for making an impression. Definitely a signature fragrance. Love it!

Mysterious, Enchanting, Sophisticated

At first I thought this scent was a bit "old ladyish" - but I also love Chanel #5, Tod Oldham, and other scents of the same genre. So it's no surprise that this mysteriously enchanting and sophisticated aroma drew me in by the end of the first day of wear.

For one thing, it lasts...all day...unfolding its bouquet layer by layer. Truly intoxicating, it made me feel amazing. I love when scents do that - its a rare find.

Recommended for evening use or day use during fall/winter. I think its a bit too much for fall summer. I have another BB fragrance for those seasons!

perfume

The package and name alone made me want to try this perfume. I was so excited to get this sample. It starts out a little strong (top notes) but the ending (bottom notes) is wonderful! A very sexy warm scent.

Obsession
Purchased

Might seem a little strong at first, but as the day wears on, it stayed with me and was positively intoxicating. This is a mysterious perfume and I can't say that other than knowing I love a perfume I have ever spent so much time thinking about one. There is a lot going on with this one I can't wait to get the full size.
