The Revenge Of Lady Blanche Fragrance Reviews


From the blurb on the package of the sample I expected DRAAAAMAAAAA...but this is simply a pleasant little green floral number. Lady Blanche for my nose is a rosy cheeked, airheaded girl, pretty, albeit without much substance, and most definitely incapable of revenge in any shape or form. Not because she is innocent (which she may be), but because that would require intellect, and that she sorely lacks.

The perfume smells extremely soapy on my skin, like old fashioned hyacinth soap. Not bad really, but nothing to write home about.


Oh, the opening is so fun! Narcissus and Iris as you've never experienced them before. I felt like Alice in Wonderland in a surreal meadow of flowers and plants that make you feel more and more curious and constantly surprised by the complexity of their scent.
Well guys I must test it again to be able to explain myself better than saying it's dreamy. At least the opening. Please be patient.
The only thing is that the dry down was a bit linear and also "unrevengeful", unlike promised. It reminded me of other less interesting scents of this category. Still.. it is worth the try. You'll love the initial cocktail of wonder.


The first hour of The Revenge of Lady Blanche is promising: bitter green sap of hyacinth with a subtle powdery texture, almost like those in vintage green floral fragrances but not quite as harshly soapy; velvety petals of lily-of-the-valley scattered within, while the golden hay nuance of narcissus lies underneath. The whole effect is like a modern ballad of spring blossoms, lively yet polished as well.

These spring blossoms becomes gently honeyed roughly 2 hours in, before merging together into an iris/laundry white musk in the next 9 hours of long dry down. The laundry-like white musk doesn't smell aggressively sharp, thankfully. Instead, it's rather smooth and fluffy, which reminds me of the diaphanous LM Parfums Chemise Blanche. There's occasionally some metallic/citrus-y aldehyde dancing around the edges, which also makes me think of Byredo Blanche, although Lady Blanche is much less muddy and more translucent.

In its final hours, the white musk becomes slightly creamier, warmer and sweeter, as rose and a tonka-like golden powdery note become more noticeable. The sillage is relatively close in general, and the longevity is around 11 hours.

I enjoyed the opening phase of The Revenge of Lady Blanche a lot, since hyacinth and narcissus are among my favourite floral notes. Moreover, the bitter sap of green floral fits perfectly the murderous backstory of the cunning aristocratic woman imagined by Penhaligon's. Unfortunately, the clean, almost innocent dry down, as pleasant as it is, didn't live up to the PR story, as if the revenge was only an intention, but never made its way to the eventual execution of the plan.

If you happen to be looking for a clean, modern, elegant green floral/white musk fragrance, I think The Revenge of Lady Blanche worths a try. But I would also suggest trying a few others in the same genre, as I do believe that there are other more sophisticated options at a more reasonable price.


A scent by Issey Miyake is back.
Its new name is The Revenge Of Lady Blanche ;-)
Same perfumer, by the way!
