Madonna’s never one to shy away from raising a few eyebrows, and that extends even into her new fragrance projects.
The 53 year-old-singer only just launched her first perfume, aptly titled Truth or Dare, and while it was uncannily sophisticated (“with notes of gardenia, creamy tuberose and neroli”) it came along with a semi-controversial commercial. In the ad, Madonna is seen shaking her thang in a tight corset and fishnet stockings, which was deemed too inappropriate for the ABC Network. (“I don’t understand. It was perfectly innocent,” Madonna told WWD with an arch look. “I just touch my cleavage once or something.”)
Now the icon has her sights set on men’s scents, telling WWD she’d turn to alcohol for help in creating her men’s cologne.
“I love the smell of whiskey — we should make a men’s cologne that smells like whiskey," she said. "I can’t drink it, it’s too strong, but it smells amazing — a really good old whiskey.”
And who might just be her clientele? Her own 15-year-old daughter, Lourdes. “She wants to wear it,” Madonna said of the potential cologne, which she hopes would also feature notes of musk and amber. “[Lourdes] likes to wear men’s cologne — don’t ask me why.”
