I have to admit, recent Madonna music isn't really blowing me away, but old school Madonna was fabulous. Crazy for You is still one of my favorite songs of all time. I always forget how much I love it and then it'll randomly shuffle on on my iPod and I get excited every time. I never really thought she'd come out with a fragrance though - I don't know why because every celebrity does - but once I heard the description of Truth or Dare, I was definitely intrigued. This is how it's summed up on Macy's website:
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.
After wearing it around for a few days, I'd say that's a pretty accurate description, although the phrase "narcotic florals" makes me giggle every time I say it because it totally makes me picture a bouquet of roses stuffed with cocaine or something. I'm normally not a big fan of florals, but this one is interesting and I think it's the addition of the Vanilla and Carmelized Amber that makes it sweeter and warmer than a lot of the florals I've tried. It's very feminine and sophisticated, plus I'm really liking the bottle - it's kind of funky and cool and seems worlds away from the cheap bottles a lot of celebrity fragrances come with. Overall, I'm digging the scent way more than I ever thought I would when the words "Madonna has a new perfume" first came to my attention. How cool is it that decades after she first became famous, Madonna can still surprise me? Time to dig out the iPod and start playing Crazy for You again in appreciation!
