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.
It's not that I don't like the smell of this perfume, but for a lady in my late 20's it is not for me. It has a classy, elegant, older lady smell. It is something I would recommend to my grandma, but never wear myself. The longer you wear the perfume the better it smells and it does not wear off throughout the day. I have wore perfumes before, like Taylor Swift, and after a few hours you cannot smell it at all. This perfume definitely lasts, just not a young, fun, or flirtatious scent.1
I received this as part of my Dec Birchbox and I will start by saying I'm not a fan of spicy oriental scents which this fragrance is. It smells very mature, or grandmothery to me. I will say however, that it doesn't smell cheap, and if you are a fan of orientals I'd venture to say this might really appeal to you. Just doesn't work for me.1
I am not really sure how I would describe the smell of this product, but it definitely was not for me. I thought it smelt really bad and cheap.1
This scent is definitely not for me. Honestly, it reminded me of so many cheap perfumes I've smelled in the past.1
I received this as a sample and after using it once threw in the trash. It does not smell good and smells more like a mans cologne. I would NOT recommend.1
When I first opened the package, I noticed the little label wasn't affixed properly on the sample bottle, then I noticed a typo in the description on the package! LOL. Seemed unprofessional and smelled the same. Not a serious perfume - it smelled like something a novice would concoct. oops!1
this is one of the worst smelling perfumes i have ever come across.1
First off, as soon as I looked at the product I hated the packaging. I'm not a fan of the "take the top off and dab" samples. I much prefer being able to spray. Second, I'm 24...not 54. I felt this smelled like it should be worn by someone of an older generation. I ended up giving my mother the rest of the sample.1
Really did not like this at all. Reminded me of something my grandmother would wear with the rose smell.1
Didn't care for this scent. Nothing very unique or special about this perfume. Floral scent was a bit too strong for me.2
