Last week at the official launch of her Truth or Dare fragrance, Madonna took time out to chat with Women's Wear Daily about all things fragrance and fashion!
During the brief interview Her Madgesty dishes on why she waited so long to release a fragrance, where she looked for inspiration, the follow-up fragrance and what she'll be wearing on the MDNA World Tour!
Here's what M had to say:
On why she's releasing a fragrance now after all these years:
"I finally was able to create, with my partners [MG Icon and Coty], a fragrance that I could stand behind. We tested a lot of things over the past few years, and [Lourdes “Lola” Leon, her 15-year-old daughter] has told me what she likes. She is a very opinionated young lady, and she likes this perfume."
On the scent being inspired by her mother:
"I wanted to create a fragrance that would remind me of her."
On ABC not liking the Truth or Dare commercial:
"I don’t understand. It was perfectly innocent. I just touch my cleavage once or something. I think it’s dreamy and sensual, and I think it perfectly conveys the feeling I’m trying to evoke with the perfume. It’s a perfume for a woman."
On her second fragrance to be released next year:
"I think it would be good to do a men’s fragrance, as well. My daughter thinks so. She wants to wear it. She likes to wear men’s cologne — don’t ask me why."
On her MDNA tour costumes:
"I worship and adore [Jean Paul Gaultier]. He’s creating one of my costumes, and kind of godfathering the costumes for a section of my show, with all my dancers. I’m really happy he’s doing it, because he’s such a genius. And I’ll probably wear something that Riccardo [Tisci] from Givenchy makes. But the rest of it is going to be what my costume designer Arianne Phillips creates with me."
First of all, JPG and Tisci??? We die!
And second, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE release a male fragrance! It would an instant hit.
