Juliette Has a Gun, Lady Vengeance

RATING (out of 5 stars): 1 star

COST: $85-$110, depending on size

THE SKINNY: I had high hopes for Juliette Has a Gun's Lady Vengeance scent. This perfume uses patchouli and vanilla, two of my favorites, as its base.

Sadly, the main ingredient to this fragrance is Bulgarian rose, which seemed to overpower all the other scents in the blend. And perfumes that are heavy on rose smell like something my grandmother would wear.

I really like the idea of this perfume company. Its name and marketing makes me think its scents will be daring, edgy and rather irreverent. I really hope the other scents in the line, including one called "Not a Perfume," live up to the image.

KEEP OR TOSS: Toss. I can't do rose.
