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.
I sampled this in last month's Birchbox, and when I first took a whiff, I thought it smelled pretty strong and generally... Not good. But when I put some on, I really grew to like it! It stayed all day and smelled better as it went on. I'd go for the full-size version if it wasn't so expensive! Still can't get over it though--smells great.5
As soon as I smelled my sample I knew I had to purchase this right away.. I receive so many compliments when I wear this. It's not your typical fruity floral scent that seems to be all the rage now. It's a rose aldehyde chypre scent. Kind of old school with a new school twist. You won't smell this on many people. It's a sexy scent.5
It was okay, very strong it did last a long time. I would never pay the price for it there are many more perfumes that i like a lot better for a lot less.3
A little bit goes a long way with this fragrance. It isn't for everyone. It is kinda musky. Mad Madame is more masculine than the typical women's fragrance, but that's what makes it so desirable. I just got a sample of this in my Birchbox, but I would buy a full size.5
This perfume is a nice combination of girl next door meets bad girl.4
Overall I like it. The price is a bit high though.4
I was not a fan of this scent at all. I put it on and actually took a shower just to get it off. I was way too strong for me and I was hoping it would fade but just couldn't stand it. Not a fan!1
Not my cup of tea. Will probably be handing this one over to my mom. Too musky for me. Very loud smell to it.2
I don't hate the scent. I think it wears pretty nice. I just don't think this is an everyday scent but rather something I should wear at night. And because I rarely have anywhere to go at night, this is a bit disappointing for me..its also a little masculine. The notes seem to be a musk with spicy undertones. It's nice but I don't know if its worth the investment.3
When I received the sample in the BB, I tried it and did NOT like it. As it wore off, I was in love with it! It lasted all day. I'm not one for flowery scents but I really love this one. I bought the full size and it smells even better in the big bottle. The price is pretty steep, but luckily you don't need a lot. Very nice perfume!5
