Truth Or Dare? OR Oh and Dear...




Photoshop Lifetime Achievement Award Winner Madonna is at it again! Here she is in the ad for her new perfume, 'Truth or Dare', which should have been called 'Lies' - because somebody obviously dared Madge to digitally decapitate herself and place her bonce on the body of someone hundreds of years younger (or maybe daughter Lola was a stand-in). Apparently the pic was nabbed from a shoot in Interview magazine last year. The same shoot which featured these images....






I'm thinking her new ad is missing a chunky crucifix, a fag and two La Isla Bonita's, non?
Sniffing "Lies" must also cause you to hallucinate, because even Madge is seeing two of her. If that was meant to be a mirror reflection shot, someone should have explained the difference between eyes CLOSED and eyes OPEN to the art dept intern.

Anyhoo. Now for the details bit. The scent (which isn't Eau D'Hydrangeas) is a composition of light and dark notes, including gardenia, tuberose, neroli, jasmine, white lily, caramelised amber and sensual musk. It features Madge's signature on the bottle, comes in two formats - 50 and 75 ml Eau de Parfum (along with body lotion and shower gel), and is aimed at 25 to 45-year-old women. And fans. Obv.

I have always been obsessed by fragrance and for years wanted to create something personal that was an expression of me, but that other people could relate to as well. Something classical and timeless and yet modern. My oldest memory of my mother is her perfume. I carry it with me everywhere. She always smelled like gardenias and tuberose, an intoxicating mixture [that was] feminine and mysterious. I wanted to re-create this scent, but with something fresh and new about it as well. Something honest and yet daring — hence the name Truth or Dare” (Madonna, WWD, 2011).

'Truth or Dare', hmm, now what does that remind me of ??
