Lady Vengeance is a seductive, rich and sophisticated fragrance. Elegant yet bristling with a wild, thorny spirit, Lady Vengeance conceals her claws under velveteen petals, soft patchouli and golden vanilla. Bulgarian rose is initially the picturesque beauty, gleamingly clean and seamless in her immaculate presentation. But before long, lavender’s chilling blue dust freezes rose’s perfect surface until it cracks, plowing this rose into gravure, with blood red rivulets running in deep uneven lines.
Vanilla assuages rose’s horror at her transformation, but is neither saccharine nor overly accommodating; a remarkably solid force, vanilla is a steadfast, satin power that washes through the divots lavender wrought and filling them with its full, supple form. Patchouli is the final modulation, a tangy smoke that, in combination with rose’s corrupted image, calls to mind a pout, painted with slightly scented, highly pigmented lipstick, from whose corner hangs a long, smoking cigarette, of more than an inch in ash.
This universal bad girl image is impossible to ignore. In the face of trouble, resistance is futile; Lady Vengeance claims us, body and soul, from the first spray.
