Truth or Dare

I was at The Bay and approached to a table of Madonna's Truth or Dare perfume display.

I did a bit of research on this perfume:
It was "15 or 16 years" in the making.  (I wonder what took her so long.)
Madonna is being sued for the logo on the perfume because the "M" resembles of a clothing line. (Whatever)

The SA gave me a scented paper to smell.
Then I saw a jar of mini samples so I asked how do I get one.
She said not a problem.  All I have to do is answer a question.
I was thinking out loud and said "I really dont know much".
The SA said "Not a problem, she will give me one anyways."
Her question was "How many books did Madonna wrote? 5? 12? 16?"
I answered, "5?"
I was wrong, she wrote 16.
The SA wondered why everyone's answer was 5...
Who knew!

It has a strong smell.
OK, I am pretty bad at describing the smell so I will be quoting this from The Bay website:

"unique blend of narcotic florals, balanced with addictive woods and vanilla"

Does that help?
I would be pretty upset if I receive one of these in one of my beauty boxes...

*Update* I did a bit of digging and it is true...she wrote 16 books.


  1. Madonna wrote 16 books???!!

    Who knew! Wow!

    Would love to try this perfume, just for curiosity sake! =)

    1. That is what the lady told me. I knew Madonna wrote a book but not that much.

  2. Wow Madonna has done an awful lot!

    Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I am now following you too!

  3. 16 books?! Wow - who knew!

    Thanks for linking up with SASS

    1. You assume she would have advertised her books...

  4. Thats interesting I wonder the quality of books as it seems no one knew about them lol


  5. Weird that she's written so many books, I didn't even know she'd written one let alone 16!

    I had no idea she wrote any books and I've never tried her perfume but I love the music
