Jolie Madame by Balmain Review
Description
Jolie Madame is an unapologetic scent that still makes it mark even more than half a century later. Despite its reformulation, it manages to retain the spirit that made the original release memorable. The fragrance is lively for us right from the beginning because of its green accords, but that comes with restraint, courtesy of the florals. Leather is the main highlight for the scent: it is silky, opulent and challenging, which understandably would not charm many shoppers but will impress the more trained of noses.
