TOO MUCH PEACH!!
Being a huge fan of Truth or Dare (which appeals immensely to the Tuberose slut in me) I recently received Naked from a wonderfully kind friend I made here on Parfumo. I'd read somewhere that this frag was becoming hard to find so I availed myself of the opportunity of a gift set including body lotion.

*Sigh* … Naked is so not what I was expecting and once again affirms that I should steer clear of flankers.

The problem for me here, is that I should have realized that nothing could compare to the gorgeousness of ToD … but I was sucked in by the Oud note in the pyramid thinking "well, if Madge did Tuberose like a dream then how amazingly would she treat Oud?". Pitifully, as it turns out.

Naked manifests as a typical fruity celebrity release to my nose, with the dubious distinction of being strangely unisex. I detest an overabundance of fruit in fragrances … fruit belongs in bowls imho. The only concession I make are hesperides, which are wonderful on the tree, in the bowl or macerated into an essential oil.
Now, the big culprit here is Peach, which I'm quite happy to enjoy au naturel, but not on my skin. As much as the rest of the notes here try to put on a brave face, the fruity note rides roughshod over everything else, emasculating (for want of a better word) the woody base entirely. The florals are meek and wilting under its onslaught and the little bit of Cocoa blossom has a burned coffee effect.

I cannot wear Naked … I find it supremely irritating in a 'gourmand gone wrong' sort of way. I will, however, keep it in my collection for reference purposes.

Tres tres desolée ...

Madonna Truth or Dare Naked
Admittedly, I am not a fan of Madonna's first foray into the world of perfumery (Truth or Dare.) Her second attempt (Truth or Dare Naked) has a totally different vibe than her first perfume and I am really happy about that! Her first perfume was mature, too mature in my opinion, but this one is younger, more unique and easier to wear. It's very warm, smooth, woody, sun kissed with a touch of sweetness and blended perfectly. Easily unisex. I don't get much of the floral notes coming out on my skin and that's fine with me. The lasting power is also quite decent. I was surprised that I liked this so much. I wasn't expecting to. It does not smell anything like a typical celebrity perfume. I read somewhere recently that Madonna was asked when she was going to release another perfume. Apparently she seemed irritated at the thought of it making one assume she was not happy with her entry into the perfume market. It doesn't look like we'll be getting another perfume from her any time soon, if ever. It's a shame really. Truth or Dare Naked is one of the very best celebrity fragrances to be found these days. Unfortunately, it seems as though it's getting harder to find. This one's worth hunting for so if you can find it, take my advice and buy it! Worth every penny!

An Ample Balsamic Presence
I love wearing Truth Or Dare Naked by Madonna. I don’t compare it to Truth Or Dare, her first release, so I’m not disappointed in any way. It’s composition is entirely different.

It’s rich in its’ feeling, thick and balmy. It has an ample balsamic presence that borders on sweet, earthy and quite seductive. The benzoin is syrupy but not sticky or resinous. There’s a nuttiness that mixes in against a backdrop of faint woods courtesy of the oud to give Naked a strong spicy Mediterranean feel. Honeysuckle offers a delightful warm, fruity-filled, honey compote in the initial offering that’s wrapped in delightful spices. The oud is balanced with the combination of other notes and is blended well and doesn’t stand out alone.

I’ve worn this mostly in the colder and cooler weather because it is strong and could be rather cloying in the summer heat. Naked lasts for hours for me and I’ve received many compliments while wearing it. This is a rare bottle in my stash of perfumes that is already 1/2 empty because I enjoy wearing it often.

My brain can't sort this one out.
Truth or Dare Naked
I found an old review I had written back in 2014 and having read it through decided that I would have a bit of an old re-test of Truth or Dare Naked; as I smelt it then is as I smell it now so here is my upated review.

I think Naked must be almost or wholly synthetic because my poor old brain doesn't know what to make of it and what I am smelling does not match up at all well with the notes attributed to it in the pyramid as given.

I don't get floral, I get fruity. At times it is wafting cocoa, vanilla, and patchouli and other times fruity, orangey, musk. Around the half hour mark the overall impression is of a sugary lemon pulp (like lemon pancakes); on a bed of cocoa, vanilla, and patchouli (like Angel); wrapped up in crushed almond, apple, and fruity amber (like Hot Couture); with at first an occasional hint of minty resin but which grows ever stronger eventually taking over the whole scene spoiling it completely for me.

This perfume gives a cool freshness in my nose so quite a mentholated feel, icy.

The cotton wool I sprayed with this perfume some two weeks ago still smells very strongly of this perfume so it is quite tenacious on fabric. At first it had a lot of the minty resinous accord but that has calmed down and it is quite a peachy, benzoin, minty amber.

Corruption dans la forêt
Truth or dare wrapped in a fragrance.... can that work?
Do I really want to play along with this? After all, I've always steered away from the idea of suggesting this crudely uncharming game when I sat with my friends in days gone by.

Of these, I have two ideas:
First, Truth or Dare Naked could be the flavor of a cough drop I only sip when winter once again spreads far too early for my southern heart in Germany.

On the other hand, Truth or Dare creates a truly strange story in my head:

Imagine you are a peach, one of the overripe variety that has already lost juiciness and acidity. It's very warm and the heat doesn't agree with your skin. But you're content until something sharp cuts through your squishy little self. Something balsamic piercing, ruthless and aggressive. You fall down for gravity's sake and land softly in sun-dried earth. This earth, which your sap now soaks, forms the floor of a coniferous forest. In this tree you see pines but most of all cedars. One of the countless cedar boughs must have split you, the peach, with its sharpness. Beside you, you find a recently unscrewed pot of herbal tea, its steam rising into the air as does the scent of your escaping sap.

So what does Madonna or the perfumer performing here want from us?
Should we play it safe, choose truth, take the easy way out, suck a candy?
Or should we dare, choose duty and embark on an adventure, with the potential risk of being hurt, of being divided?

Well, I don't really know what this fragrance is supposed to make us feel
...somber, yet suffused with warmth...
And...
...what's a tea and a rotten peach doing in the woods?

There is something in this that smells intensely artificial minty (or something like it) so that is all I can smell.
