    Mad Madame is my favorite, second is Lady Vengeance.
    I don't like the others very much, especially Vengeance Extrême and Midnight Oud.
    Not a Perfume smells like musk to my nose. Even if it's cetalox, this is very different from ambroxan IMHO.

    One I recently tried that I thought was pleasant was Another Oud

    Based on a few I've tried, none honestly.

    Your mileage may vary.

    I own and wear Lady Vengeance. It's really nice. Rose, vanilla and patchouli. For me it's a nice dress-up perfume.

    Have you tried Vengeance Extreme? If so, how do they compare?

    I did sample Vengeance Extreme briefly at Scent Bar in LA and it didn't seem different enough to justify owning both. However, I didn't give it a full wearing so my impression is not certain.

    I pretty much agree. Unless one has an unlimited budget, there are much more interesting houses to explore before that one. Not bad, just similar to many other fragrances.
    Of all the ones I tried, I liked Gentlewoman and White Spirit, but no love for me here.

    I've only sampled this line at Sephora and the only one that I really liked was the newest one, Vanilla Vibes. The bad thing is that it doesn't last long on my skin, so had to skip it. Not the best vanilla, but pretty good while it lasted.

    Lady Vengeance is the dog's bollocks. Best patchouli and rose combo I came across, and I wear it when I need an extra confidence boost. One of Francis Kurkdjian's best in my opinion. Vengeance Extreme leans more towards the patchouli and vanilla, and is more muted if I remember correctly. I prefer the former by a long shot.

    Metal Chypre is also worth trying if you like the genre. It's a very modern take on a chypre scent using - to my nose - more modern materials to give it the same overall effect. Wonderful stuff if a bit pricey.

    Oil Fiction is a great floral amber that recalls 80s powerhouse perfumes. It's incredibly smooth an well-blended. One of not very many amber perfumes I can stand.

    Overall, it might be worth getting a sample pack from the house and just trying a few. I don't think you can go very wrong depending on your tolerance of unisex but definitely not masculine leaning scents.

    Similar thoughts. Ambroxan in everything, it seems. Pretty easy for me to dismiss based on that alone.

    The only one I could give a middling pass to was Lady Vengence, but even then too sweet and the drydown was much cheaper smelling then it ought to have been.
    Most worn:

    Black Comme des Garçons, Borneo 1834 Serge Lutens, Patchouli Santa Maria Novella
