In case you didn’t know, Madonna has been working on perfecting her Truth or Dare perfume for FIFTEEN years. Can you believe it? All of the hanky panky sweat, Guy Ritchie’s balls and stench of freshly melted and plasticized skin couldn’t be bottled up right then and there?
Well, it’s true. Apparently coming up with that perfect scent was important to Madge but she had other projects that seemed to interfere with her concoction mixing, like toy boy handling and squeezing into too tight leotards.
She tells MTV News, “I’ve been trying to develop a fragrance for the last 15 or 16 years. The time was right. I’ve been working off and on on various fragrances over the years, and (have been) approached by a lot of companies and have tried to create fragrances. They were always abandoned projects. I’ve always loved perfume; it’s always been a big part of my life. But every time I tried to create the scent I was looking for, it never reached the stage where I thought it was good enough or I was told that the ingredients would be impossible to re-create in a mass way. Then I’d say, ‘let’s try and do a synthetic version,’ and it never smelled as good as I wanted it to. And if I’m not going to wear it, I’m not going to sell it. So, I finally was able to create… a fragrance that I could stand behind.”
As for who she thinks should wear her perfume? “Someone who is daring, daring enough to tell the truth and someone who likes gardenias.”
