I like Lady Vengeance Ė not as much as some other patchouli-rose marriages, but I would wear it and enjoy it. Itís much simpler than the dark and gothic, woody-resinous Clinique Aromatics Elixir or Montale Black Aoud, two of my favorites. Itís not the spicy, dried fruit and rose potpourri like Eau díItalie Paestum Rose. Itís less of an imitation of nature than LíArtisan Voleur de Rose, which smelled like rose and patchouli in a wine cellar. Lady Vengeance smells modern and spare. It reminds me of Narciso Rodriguez for Her (in the pink bottle) without the candied peach note bonded to the rose (which is why I prefer the NR for Her). Lady Vengeance is a bit simpler; it shares that airy, peppery, woody top note and the sharp-edged, synthetic buzz that drills itself into your memory. LV is a kick. Itís a fun fragrance.
