Mad Madame revolves around a green blackcurrant bud, a cuddly ambroxan, an earthy patchouli, and a metallic rose. The effect is no dewy, innocent flower -- this is a femme fatale who knows what she wants. Notes include rose, amber, freesia, peony, patchouli, tuberose, moss, jasmine, blackcurrant, vanilla, and castoreum.
Initiated into the world of fashion by his great grandmother Nina and to perfumery by his grandfather Robert, creator of the famous perfume L’air du Temps, Romano Ricci has been surrounded by fashion and creation since childhood. Ricci decided to marry his family’s heritage with his own modern vision of perfumery. After a four-year apprenticeship in perfumery, he persuaded Francis Kurkdjian, master perfumer, to work with him in creating Juliette Has A Gun. The brand envisions a Shakespeare's Juliette as a modern woman who uses perfume as a weapon of seduction.
