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.
