Madonna Truth or Dare Perfume

Madonna Truth or Dare - eau de parfum for women

Truth or Dare by Madonna - "Truth or Dare by Madonna is a contemporary and sexy reinvention of a classic, robust signature white floral. The unique blend of narcotic florals, balanced with addictive woods and vanilla, create a scent that is timeless yet modern, simultaneously dark and light. The addition of gourmand notes such as Vanilla and Caramelized Amber makes the fragrance stand out from traditional floral fragrances and gives it a contemporary edge. Experience the opulent and sensual scent of Truth or Dare by Madonna with the new fragrance collection for women."

Spray of Light
Madonna's fragrance, Truth or Dare, is like a virgin (white lily) touched for the very first time (tuberose and musk). We brought it to her yoga studio -- Eddie Stern's Ashtanga Yoga New York - to see if it helped enthusiasts work up a sweat.

"I'm from Georgia, so it reminds me of Savannah and the magnolia trees." - Sheetal
"It's sweet. I'd wear it everry day - well, maybe not to yoga, but definitely to brunch." - Linda
"I like it. It makes me think of wildflowers and early-morning dew." - Caroline

What's in Madonna's very first fragrance?
The signer approached her debut fragrance, Truth or Dare, as if she were creating a track in the studio, says Givaudan's Stephen Nilson, who worked with her to produce the juice. "She would say, 'Push this one note, put more of that in there.' It was like playing around with an equalizer board." Here's our take on the final mix, with Nilsen on lead vocals. ($68/75 ml;

25% Gardenia & Tuberose - "These opulent flowers remind Madonna of the scent her mother wore," says Nilsen. "They speak of the truth of her memory."
25% Jasmine - "This floral has an animalistic quality to it, and it lasts -- like dirty sex."
20% White Lily Petals - "White lilies have the pure connotation of religious ceremonies."
10% Musk Aura - "Musk is very sensual, and it leaves a trail. This gets in your head like one of her pop songs."
20% Amber & Vanilla - "The smell is completely addictive. You want to bite into it."
