Like a candy
Another fragrance where I will be rather in the unpopular minority with my sentiment. I do not think that I am particularly averse to tuberose - from my very scarce encounters with that note, I appreciate it in Poison both EdT and Esprit, and Eau de Giorgio also did not shoo me away...So, after...

Classy White Floral
Truth Or Dare is not people's favorite scent and I understand. I remember I got it in 2013 when it was on sale. I was chocked when I saw it because I didn't even know that they had it and bought it, instantly. The box is simple but chic at the same time. The bottle is also simple but chic. I like... Read more

Sweet Peaches and Chocolate
For me Truth or Dare smells of sweet tinned peaches and benzoin with a soft melted white chocolate running beneath. There is a slight muskyness about the gardenia and just a hint of orange . Thickly sweet tuberose, a touch resinous, and spicy but without the typical spices of cinnamon, clove,... Read more

Feminine White Floral
Top Notes: Neroli, Gardenia, Tuberose. Heart Notes: Jasmine, Benzoin, Lily. Base Notes: Musk, Amber, Vanilla. Truth or Dare is a pretty, feminine white floral that is a near dupe of Fracas. Unlike Fracas, however, ToD features a prominent benzoin note and finishes with a simpler base... Read more

Madonna tries to re-create Fracas
Since Madonna released Truth or Dare, reviews have been mixed. Some say it's the best celebrity fragrance yet, while others call it cheap and uninspiring. Honestly, I'm on either side of the fence. I neither love it nor dislike it. It is fairly evident that Fracas has been the inspiration behind... Read more

Breathless Mahoney, ahoy!
I'm a little wary of celebrity scents in general, however, I decided to try Madonna's fragrances for a couple reasons. Though I haven't felt inclined to listen to her music or keep up with her in over a decade, I have a huge soft spot for this living style & music legend who influenced my... Read more

Tuberose Lovers Unite
A sharp, crisp tuberose that delivers with opposing notes of surprise. Strong tuberose intermingles with woods and spices in this fanciful perfume introduced by Madonna. One must definitely be a floral lover to enjoy this one or it could be a headache inducer. There are days I’m in the mood for ... Read more

Oh, Madge!
Madonna's schtick has been to tie her name and brand to concepts that are just new enough to be recognizable and exciting, but unformed enough that she can take them without most people knowing that she didn’t invent them. She's not the spark of innovation, she's the gallon of gasoline poured on... Read more

Pass me a paper bag ?
I HAD this perfume ! But as soon as I took a sniff of the scent.. It was in the bin , this is a very old timer sickly perfume that has a very strong white floral fragrance to it ! To be honest I hate this perfume the best part about it was that Madonna made a perfume suited to her age :/

What happens if you mix a Juicy Couture caramel perfume with Fracas in a 3:1 proportion?
Am I the only person who reads Madonna's perfume TRUTH OR DARE as a cross between the Juicy Couture caramel perfumes and FRACAS (in a 3:1 ratio)? The sweet stickiness is all Juicy Couture. The extra dose of tuberose is all FRACAS. But the quality is definitely closer to Juicy Couture, in my... Read more

First celebrity scent that I might actually buy
I'm not a fan of celebrity perfumes myself, I actually tend to avoid them and have none in my collection so far. But Truth or Dare is really well done. It does not smell cheap at all. In fact, I honestly believe that if packaged and sold as a new release in some niche line, many tuberose lovers... Read more

Madge triumphs again!
Being the Tuberose slut I am, I've been dying to try this fragrance since it's release. I was bitterly disappointed that the launch of Truth or Dare was restricted. It is, after all, a Coty fragrance and as such one would've thought that it would be crawling out of the walls in malls all over the... Read more

A Heavy White Floral
Now, when I first had the bottle in my hand I couldn't help noticing that it looks a lot like a holy-water flacon, the kind you can take with you. The gold crucifix logo entwined with the "M" strengthens that impression even more. Given that it's Madonna who (no doubt!) had her hands in... Read more

Nice tuberose
Yes, even Madonna has her own scent now. And yes it seems that is has been a long time for her to make this decision, but no, I don't think this had anything to do with finding the right scent or whatever. Madonna just waited for the perfect deal. I admit I seriously had my doubts as most celebrity... Read more

Best perfume of 2012?
When I told the sales associate at Macy’s that I had come for the Madonna perfume, she didn’t question for even a second the fact that I'm a man or inquire whether I was buying it for a female relative. She knew it was for me and was totally unfazed, an indication that a lot of gay men must be... Read more

Sometimes, I prefer to wear this rather than Fracas. I find it quite sweet with a smell like melted white chocolate (I am the Milky Bar Kid.+1
