Madame Fragrance Reviews

This is a big thing, really!!! And the name "Madame" is most appropriate. Reminds me of an elegant, mature lady (old enough to know what she wants and to have achieved her happiness), in a white skirt, jacket, high-heeled shoes and a hat. The epoch she lives in does not matter - she can be from the 1950's, 1980's or from our times - she's timeless. The most prominent notes to my nose are rose and ylang, some very delicate oakmoss in the drydown, but really - barely any. Gardenia disappears too soon (unfortunately) which makes the scent not as round as it initially promises to be. I'll go back to this perfume in summer, I'm not ready to fully appreciate it on a rainy, February evening:)

Honestly......I blind bought this by the notes alone. I normally go for REALLY bold and long lasting fragrances. And, as you can see, this gets a few points for longevity, but the projection is a little lacking. Those votes are true after having tried this. However, I do not care. This fragrance is SO LOVELY that I will douse myself continually all day long if I have to. Now understand that this is during winter. I understand that it is better in summer. Hopefully the projection will amp up with warm temperatures. *fingers crossed* I am a floral chypre fiend from the 80s. I WISH that I had discovered this in the 90s so that I could have lovingly worn it since.....

The one packaged in the 70s is a different scent than this one. It comes in a pink box. The bottle is unique with a leaf shape at the neck of the bottle and gold cap. It is not called "Elle" or "Femme". It is just Lancetti.
.
There is no separate listing for it.

It was packaged differently when it first came out in late '70es. My best school mate and I went together to buy a bottle each after receiving a sample, using and loving every drop of it.
She went on for years to use Lancetti while I betrayed it with a hundred different scents.
I remember it was classy and very long lasting, very green and flowery in the opening and very woody in the drydown.
I agree with Sherapop in that this "opens in a typically Italian way" and I am of opinion that this scent showed the way to the many Italian couture scents that would have soon come along (Armani first of all, Trussardi white bottle soon after and Genny black box - the first Genny scent I mean - in third place).
It has always struck me thinking that this was soon discontinued and now some Lancetti scents are found at supermarkets selling for few Euros. That's sad. Pino Lancetti was a pioneer in the Italian haute couture and perfumery too. A sad ending.

It reminds me of Ivoire by Balmain! Do we have anybody who can support that argument here?

(Thank you, O Solicitous Administrator, for adding this one to the database. I have now moved my review to its proper place.)

Lancetti MADAME opens in a typically Italian way--or perhaps I should say in a typically Schiapparelli-Pikenz way--with a Moschino-esque solvent blast which happily evaporates in a flash. Most of the life of this fragrance takes the form of a rather standard slightly dark dried-flower chypre with medium sillage. Although this composition has extraordinary longevity, in terms of its character, MADAME is just okay--provided of course that you like light oakmoss chypres.

All in all, it's fair to say that I am not heartbroken that it's probably impossible to find this anywhere anyway. (-:
