Truth or Dare by Madonna Naked Madonna for women Pictures

Truth or Dare by Madonna Naked is a new version of the Madonna's debut in the world of perfumes – the fragrance Truth or Dare launched in early 2012. Truth or Dare Naked is out in the fall of 2012, more sensual and daring than its predecessor.

The creation of this floral – woody fragrance is credited to perfumer Stephen Nilsen, who also created the original edition. The scent is described as a bold combination of creamy woods, vanilla and sparkling flowers.

The top notes are honeysuckle, peach blossom and neroli. The perfume’s core includes vanilla orchid, cocoa flower and lily of the valley. The base is creamy with Texas cedar wood, benzoin from Laos, oud accord and Australian sandalwood.

Truth or Dare by Madonna Naked is available as 50 and 75 ml Eau de Parfum.

With scents like this, the quality of the notes need to feel authentic and luscious to make it enjoyable to wear. With ToDN, the idea is all there but the actual execution falls short and it's such a disappointment. Obviously, this frag is a cheapie and to expect a really high-quality experience from something in this price range would be rather naive. However, the frustration for me lies within the feeling that if this scent were formulated in a higher price range with more prestigious, quality ingredients, this would be a winner.

The fake amber-y, vanilla note reminds me of a 99 cent store vanilla lotion, that faux richness that, instead of melting into you, loiters, annoyingly, around you...it is an oxymoron. The soothing quality that that smoothness *ought* to have becomes loud and obnoxious, forcibly entering your senses. Appalling.

Very sweet, gourmand-y, I can detect the peach but even that sweetness is overridden by the fauxnilla. Lesson learned: never trust a cheap buttery/vanilla note. Worst part is, all other notes fade away with the exception of the fauxnilla, so this scent never mellows/becomes something wearable. I *get* that it's 10.00 but your dollars are better spent on a sandwich.

This was my first blind buy ever, thanks to your reviews, fragrantica!
Now to the fragrance. I agree with Angeldaisy, it does have a synthetic, medicinal, fake sweet vanilla-ambery note, and it is pretty much all I can smell, but still, I have worn much worse fragrances than this! Also, because it's so soft, it's not headache-inducing at all, unless I stick my nose on it and take a big whiff. What surprises me most is that even though it's soft, I can still smell it from a distance, which doesn't happen with most fragrances. I feel like I have a soft, amber-sugar-cacao-floral aura surrounding me, which is why I bought this fragrance in the first place. As for the synthetic smell, I kinda suspected it since it's so cheap.
In the end, this fragrance was exactly what I expected it to be: great for its price!

There's something sickly and chemically in here that i have discovered recently in a few other perfumes including Anglomania and Maitresse...and apparently J'adore! I find that repellant too.
This sweet fake vanilla-benzoin-woodsy-ambery aroma chemical basically goes up my nose and blocks every single other note, so that it is all i can whiff :-(
they use this same chemical in posh hair product too i am sure.
Such a shame, as without this addition (to my nose), i can see that this could be as amazing as truth or dare.
Get some Truth or Dare though (before everyone runs out)...it is divine!
Buy Naked if you are willing to potentially smell like you've rubbed hair detangler on your skin.
longevity and sillage are great.

no , really not ..i can't . I do like "Truth or Dare" which is much more refined , alluring , but this one is with too much sugar ,too much chocolate, too heavy ( probably perfect in winter ) . It looks like the perfume of a litle girl who mixed all the sweet ingredients she had under the hand . I'm feeling like a diabetic , in crisis , smelling it

So much strong warm benzoin and orchid.  I guess this is like Madonna herself, sort of in your face and bold.  :)  For me it can be overwhelming and works best when I walk through it sprayed in the air while, well...naked.  The warmth of my skin and the scent meld together.  It's not something I wear during the day which is odd as I usually don't care for night and day categories.  This is a cozy relaxing bedtime scent.  It makes me feel sexier but, only in small amounts 3/5

Truth or Dare Naked – Yes lots of cacao and benzoin with floral and sweet undertones, not too sweet, just sweet enough with heavenly woody notes. The cedar gives Naked a dry character that seems to tame it from becoming too sweet.

Naked is utter yumminess, it is sensual, strong, and long lasting; a total femme bomb that is bordering on being a unisex type of scent.

I just blind purchased this based on the multitude of positive reviews, and the fact that I love Madonna' s other perfume. This smelled greasy...like petroleum and chemicals on my skin. Very offensive and headache inducing. Reminds me of Givenchy Play Intense, which smelled exactly like Naked on my skin, and caused a similar headache. Surprise surprise; they both have notes of Benzoin and Vanilla Orchid. Guess I know To stay away from those notes from now on. Anyone looking to swap, it's a brand new 1 ounce bottle...and I have the box.

The first time I tried this, I had to conclude it was too sweet for me and not my thing. But... I followed the advise of Patxaram and layered it with Femme de Rochas. Wonderful!! The effect is still much sweeter than my usual fragrances, but very nice indeed. I will certainly look up the suggestions of Suhaesa and try other layering combinations as well (Fragrantica Club » General Perfume Talk » layering perfumes). Trying this scent has changed my mind about sweet perfumes and has definitely confirmed the value of layering certain perfumes. Thank you all!!

Orchid and benzoin gives this a vanilla-sweet minty flavor. Honeysuckle, sandalwood, and oud. An amber feel, rich and warm. Absolutely wonderful.
You can still find this online. Give it go.
Hands down my favorite celebrity scent that blows its competition away.

Eww, I really don't like this perfume. Upon within the first hour of applying, I could smell menthol - yes, menthol cough syrup type of smell. As it progressed, it became light menthol with a sturdy amber spicy body. People around me were also not impressed. Not for me, no way!

Much more lighter and safe compared to the original. It opens somehow sour on my skin, but after 10 seconds it settles into a beautiful floral woody composition. On my skin benzoin, orchid and peach blossom prevails. Lovely longevity and sillage. Nicely done!

Both of Madonna's fragrances are such winners, I can't believe this one may be discontinued. It's absolutely lovely. I find it to be very feminine. But seems to be popular among all fragrance enthusiasts here.

Starts strong. I actually smell cocoa butter in this. I felt I'd over-sprayed at first. Then a few hours later I lost track of the scent. Then I smelled my wrist. It was still there. It was still there after 10 hours.

I get the honeysuckle and wood. I get a little straight vanilla, a puff of sandalwood incense smoke.

Even if the floral notes scare you, I suggest you try this. It's wrapped up in enough spice, cocoa, and woods to keep the bouquet under control.

So nicely done. The original Madonna Truth or Dare was so good it made me fall for tuberose. Truth or Dare Naked just made me fall period. Love it.

first spray: for 2 seconds it reminds me Dune for woman by Dior. After this 2 seconds, scent goes in another way. Madonnas has done 2 great perfumes, long lasting and not cheap at all. Well mixed liquid inside elegant bottles too. This one is kind of unisex at first spray, after some minutes, you can smell the floral accord, and it´s femenin.

This is a really fun scent, and based on the reviews here, seems to be a safe blind buy. I have to admit that I blind purchased as well :) Thank you all, for your reviews!

On my skin, Naked is not sweet. I get the distinct fatty scent of cacao bean, that dark, almost pungent scent of unsweetened chocolate mixed with the slight woody airiness of the bean fibers. Cedar really shines here, and is much stronger than the feedback above suggests. Those reviews that mention a "minty" scent are referring, I think, to the cedar. Oud is present as well, but is more powdery than the cedar in this scent.

The florals are nicely balanced- they don't overwhelm the woods and cacao, nor are they overwhelmed. I'm having a hard time detecting individual notes, it's more of a slightly floral undercurrent, lightening the darker scents in Naked. From time to time I get a whiff of sweetness, which I think is the benzoin. On my skin this is an oriental, rather than a gourmand. I really love it.

Sillage could be better. I normally wear 1 or two spritzes of scent. For this to provide within arms length sillage I needed 6. It does last quite a while, and I agree that this is safely unisex. Naked is an attractive scent for a woman, but I think this might be really really sexy on a man. It will be more understated than most men's scents, and more complex as well. The woods give it a nice crisp edge, while the benzoin and cacao make it compelling. For $10, give it a shot!

EDIT: My mother says this smells like "minty dog." Um?

There is something very familiar about this fragrance..I just can't figure out where from..maybe something from the late 80's early 90's? It sort of reminds me of something a school friend used to wear 20 something years ago, I know she wore Joop Le Bain or maybe Joop Femme, but surely it can't be that..can it??

Anyway, all that aside, ToD Naked is growing on me..I still prefer the original ToD,(at the moment, watch this space..) but this is so totally different that its not really fair to compare them to each other... This is warm, honeyed, sweet and intoxicating.. :)

After hearing about the possible real/rumor of this scent being discontinued and also the fact that I've heard quite often this could work well as a unisex scent....I finally took the blind buy plunge and got a 50ml bottle.

Boy howdy, just like Bollen below me says...what a terrific blind buy!!! Much has already been said about this terrific "semi-gourmand" scent already...so I'll be brief since I know I can't add much of anything.

I definitely get this overall feel of a absolutely wonderful creamy butterscotch candy like vibe. But at the same time, it's SOOOOO much more than that with some soft and delicate florals and a slight woody note in the background. Like another reviewer mentioned, it's got the smell of a delicious lip balm as well.(Blistex or Carmex, I couldn't tell you.....but it's awesome just the same!:)

I don't know what the heck is going on with my winning streak of blind buy/sampling of "woman's" uber cheapie perfumes lately like Queen, Queen Of Hearts, Unbreakable Love(yeah, yeah "unisex" I know;)and David Yurman Limited Edition. But I'm certainly gaining a new respect, if not flat out infatuation/admiration with some of these wonderfully deep and sensual creations which can be had for criminally low prices!!!

This is available really cheap right now, but watch out because I guess it's discontinued? I have a 1.7 oz and a back up 1.7 coming.
TorD original was horrible unless you love Gardenia and want a sillage/potent bomb.
But the notes and reviews of this one looked much more up my gourmand-alley. I love TorD Naked. It's creamy, buttery, sandalwood, vanilla... just a soft feminine mature gourmand that is soft but has excellent longevity. I am loving it right now, in the very beginning of spring. I think lovers of mature gourmands like Dior Addict will love this.
I do get a minty note, but it actually makes me intrigued more than repulsed. So, I don't mind it. :)

Now, the celebrity scent aspect.... what makes Madonna any less "expert" or capable in making a fragrance than a designer? What does Jimmy Choo actually know about perfume? So the fact this is a "celeb" scent... I wouldn't even call it that. You'd put Madonna in the same boat as Paris Hilton? I think Madge is more than qualified to make a quality scent. But that being said, I like way more Paris scents than Madonna. TorD white was awful to me.

Edit: A few days later, and I'm in love with this perfume! The drydown is almost too sweet for me.... which is crazy because I am the queen of sweet scents.... lol.... But I LOVE this perfume. What a excellent buy! I get a creamy peach vanilla with that strange mint that intrigues me. Then a woody sweet amber. (the peach reminds me of Fancy Love).

Another great blind buy. Bought ToD Naked for me and regular ToD for my mom. Ended up loving both of them, especially the "original" ToD to my big surprise.
(Im not a big fan of floral´s in general and have to admit that I am bad at picking out the different notes among flower based scents.)
Were the original ToD feels comforting and soothing ToD Naked feels more flirty and fun. I can´t for the life of me smell any cacao or flowers, Naked smells fruity and spicysweet to me. (EDIT: I think it´s the peach blossom that fools me.) And in this case that´s not a bad thing at all. I thought I bought a autumn/winter scent but I think the fruity sweet feeling I get from it makes it much more of a spring/summer scent. Witch is just what I needed. Do I need to mention the the price for this ab fab frag is awesome too? :)

(Try it while it´s still available because it´s sadly discontinued I think.)

TOD NAKED is a very pleasant surprise for me. I'm often wary of celebrity fragrances after so many bad experiences, but this one smells NICHE and exotic!

This is also fantastic in combination with your man wearing PURE WOOD by Thierry Mugler, smell both and see why. The oud accord is definitely in there, and well composed, not overly done.

This smells unisex, it has a masculine feel, this is for the woman who wants to feel like an exotic temptress in the middle east. Something you'd smell on Cleopatra.
Very unique, well blended, original, and one of the best celebrity fragrances I've experienced yet. I'm not overselling this, I'm hard to impress, and this is going on my want list right now!

This is exactly what I've been looking for, for a LONG time, something woodsy, exotic and a bit masculine, for those days when I'm feeling "edgy" and adventurous. I dare say, this even smells a bit EROTIC. ;) It doesn't hit you in the face however, and I like that about it, it's soft and covers you like a blanket, wish it lasted longer, but for the price it's worth it. The perfect Autumn scent, but I'm a rebel and love standing out so I would probably wear it all year!

Naked

This is a very beautiful and quite- surprising fragrance. I wasn't a huge fan of Truth or Dare but when i bought this one i was incredibly happy with it. The first spray was like a warm hug from an old friend and the essence of comfort is sort of the continuous thread that runs through this fragrance. The warm vanilla notes with the slightest hint of Oud and the floral touches from the orchid and Peach blossom all work harmoniously together. I think what i love most is the fact that this doesn't smell like your typical celebrity fragrance, there is a real luxurious vibe about this that gives it an incredible sort of appeal because it's so affordable As well. I like to wear this on cool autumn days where the air is cold but the sun is out and the best sort of comfort is found in snuggling with a cashmere blanket and a great book as you sit by a window and watch the leaves fall from the trees. Or you could just go naked.

OMG!! i was searching through the comments for someone to say that this is similar to Hilary Duff with love and i found one!!! i am so excited about this, i wanted With love badly but it is discontinued and nowhere to be found but thank you Madonna for covering that spot :) it is spicy and exotic with a hint of mint as a lot of people have mentioned or eucalyptus,warm and rich.
I couldn't believe how much they are alike, i was checking the notes...but they have none in common...this amazes me.
Best blind buy so far!!!

The two notes that stick out the most to me are cacao and benzion. So if you like either of these notes, I'm sure you'll love this!

I would say this is a seductive yet playful fragrance. I own a lot of high end and niche perfumes and this one smells just as expensive. It's sweet, warm, spicy, and alluring. I think the benzion and oud gives it a slight fatale femme edge.
This is probably one of the best and most unique celebrity fragrance!

I just snapped up a bottle of this as it is now discontinued. Even though I am a massive Madonna fan I didn't buy truth or dare primarily as it wasn't released here in Australia but because everyone said it smelled so much like Fracas I figured there wasn't any point. I quite like Naked, it is a very musky ambery fragrance. I would wear it only when you don't mind being noticed because it is strong and lasts a long time! It is not a typical celeb fragrance, it's not a crowd pleaser and it actually smells like a niche perfume like something Serge Lutens would create. I was dissapointed to hear that she would not be releasing any more fragrances.

This is my second "women's fragrance" that I own. I absolutely adore it.

The user below me, Cleo Cupcake, was absolutely spot-on when she said this fragrance "wraps you like a cashmere blanket."

This fragrance is so smooth and warm with an appropriate sweetness.

This is a soft playful yet slightly mature fragrance. It starts out as mildly sweet, creamy floral fragrance. The vanilla smells borderline edible but stops right before being like the rest of the over-the-top vanillas in women's fragrances.

After a few minutes of wearing it, something gets a little smoky (but not nasty and offensive like Aventus). I think it's the combination of oud and cedar? Even though there is a smoky accord, it's not masculine by any stretch.

It's not a hyper-feminine women's fragrance (candy, sugar, super-fruity). I feel comfortable and confident. The fragrance lasts a really long time. I bought the 2-piece gift set from Walmart.com for $20. Excellent blind buy for me.

I absolutely recommend this as a signature fragrance for someone ascending from the likes of cookie-cutter, run-of-the-mill, fruity candy bombs known as celebrity fragrances.

First of all no comparisons to original Truth or Dare - this is a completely different fragrance. It stands alone and it is fabulous. I love the resinous warmth, the balmy, sandalwood and honey goodness that wraps you like a cashmere blanket. It is a perfect winter fragrance that warms the heart and soul. And I bought it at my local Beauty Base for £6.99 right now that's about 9 euros or 10 dollars. Best bargain ever so will be stocking up as that price must mean it's discontinued. Shame, I wish more celebrity scents were this good.

It's florally sweet and minty fresh at the same time... I can smell something close to menthol or eucalyptus. It's not the typical sweet girly frag. It's not enough for me ( not sweet enough, not heavy enough) but it smells nice and in wormer months I'll use it as a daily fume.
And I can't find anything similar to Joop in this... and Joop stays on the podium as my nr.1 in heavy fumes

I purchased this one because it has a reputation of being good for the price it is sold for, and because it contains the notes I usually like and no notes i dislike. I was very glad after first testing that I liked it a lot. I considered it being my best blind buy so far.

I changed my mind after second testing.

I am not a fan of pure florals in general, and this one is a bit too floral for me, especially in the opening. I am saying this because I am a woody perfume type of girl. I do agree that TOD Naked is a floral woody as it is classified here. It is sweet and rich, but not too overly gourmand. I do not smell any musk here though. I do not find it spicy either.

The opening and middle notes reminds me actually a bit of Roberto Cavalli EDP; which I like too, but find it a bit difficult to wear for everyday. TOD Naked seems to be more versatile and more suitable for daytime wear.

After second testing I realized, the opening and middle notes are too heavy on vanilla. The combination of vanilla and cacao makes it sweet and gourmand and this is a deal breaker for me. This part smells a bit synthetic to me as well and makes me remember how little i paid for it.

Longevity seems to be good, i get about 4-5 hours with light application and still smell it softly lingering on myself after 6. Sillage soft.
The drydown is pleasant warm soft woody ambery scent.

Overall I find this to be lovely scent. A bit generic and similar to many others out there and not so original, but truly worth to have for that price. I am giving up for now but will be giving it some few chances later to see wheter I still think the same.

Try if you like warm sweet vanillic ambery florals in your perfume. Test before you buy if you do not like sweet dessert smells in you perfume.

Overall: 7.5/10
Here's Why:
Light but heady, this 'spray' has nothing in common with the original. This one is great for warm weather, I actually purchased this on a recommendation from a other male friend of mine who wore this as a base, under some heavier hitters. I do not use this as a standalone, since this feels more like a body mist to me.
It always adds a little warmth to whatever i'm wearing and its quite nice.
When i did wear this on its own it came off a little unrefined and plastic smelling. Good bang for the buck, and works very well with other fragrances to notch up the warmth factor.

I love wearing Truth Or Dare Naked by Madonna. I don’t compare it to Truth Or Dare, her first release, so I’m not disappointed in any way. It’s composition is entirely different.

It’s rich in its’ feeling, thick and balmy. It has an ample balsamic presence that borders on sweet, earthy and quite seductive. The benzoin is syrupy but not sticky or resinous. There’s a nuttiness that mixes in against a backdrop of faint woods courtesy of the oud to give Naked a strong spicy Mediterranean feel. Honeysuckle offers a delightful warm, fruity-filled, honey compote in the initial offering that’s wrapped in delightful spices. The oud is balanced with the combination of other notes and is blended well and doesn’t stand out alone.

I’ve worn this floral woody musk mostly in the colder and cooler weather because it is strong and could be rather cloying in the summer heat. Naked lasts for hours for me and I’ve received many compliments while wearing it. This is a rare bottle in my stash of perfumes that is already 1/2 empty because I enjoy wearing it often.

I had blind bought Truth or Dare Naked based on the note and reviews. Initially I was set aback, all I could think was "too much". It didn't strike me as sophisticated but rather as being hit over the head with a boozy sweet sandalwood chunk. I tried to wear it perhaps twice and ended up thinking I would sell it or give it away. Then I started experimenting with layering. Now I know the true purpose of this juice in my wardrobe. It is the warm sweet canvas that blends fabulously with a wide range of scents, from woody smokey ones (think Encre noire) to arabian attars. Thanks to Suhaesa's layering advice I have been layering this today with AR Saat Safa and Rochas Femme and the result was mindblowing. So all of a sudden, this made "sense" and for the first time, underneath these two powerhouse fragrances, I could detect the tiny bit of oud that's present in TOD Naked. Weird. I could not smell the oud when I tried the scent on its own. If you are not keen on oud but like sandalwood and boozy sweet scents you might well appreciate Truth or Dare Naked. If you find it too sweet....go ahead and get layering, you won't regret.

With all the rave reviews, I guess I had a little higher expectations for this 'fume than I should have. It's not that I'm SUCH a perfume snob--I have many budget minded perfumes in my collection that I truly enjoy. I just thought this would be...more.

Naked starts out with a huge blast of honeysuckle and orange blossom that is on the edge of cloying. Just a tad too sweet for my tastes, but then I've never been a big boozy honeyed perfume fan. Fortunately, it does start to settle down fairly quickly, and ultimately it ends with a fairly pleasant sueded sandalwood that I quite like. But, none of the components feel truly quality...they are rather synthetic and lacking depth. I guess on a hamburger budget, I shouldn't have expected steak.

On the plus side, this is not just another generic 21st century white flower perfume. Not a cheap watered down jasmine in sight. It is truly a bargain, as it can be had for under $15. For that price, it is worthy if you like your florals big and boozy to start with a softer woodsy drydown. For bargain celeb perfumes, I'd rather take my honeysuckle a la Wonderstruck or vintage Chloe, but to each their own, right?

I'm so proud of Madonna for coming out with a perfume that is amazing as this !

You can so imagine her smelling like this :)
I love perfumes with Benzoin and this is the one that got me addicted in the first place.
Just picture strong, sexy, powerful, independent woman and that is what this perfume is.

Very long lasting and sillage is great.
In about two years I have gone through four 50ml bottles of this. They were very cheap and it's why I was shocked at how good it smells. I paid £10.

If you don't already have it, buy it. You can not argue at the price it is going for. One of my most used in my collection.
I actually need to order more because I am running out :(

I get a very rich, soothing opening from this. Then comes a very mild minty chocolate. It is not too sweet or too minty. More of a rich smell. Then the mint fades and I'm just left with a light hint of chocolate with a very subtle, but rich scent. I like it a lot, but hard to describe.

Agree with Mabelcruet. Sweet, sickly, sour, milky vanilla with strange high notes of resiny mouthwash or cough medicine. A dead ringer for Strenesse for me which I had to give away as I couldn't stomach it. This is my first spray and I LOVE the original Truth or Dare so much that I don't want to give up just yet. May post again.

I like the original version of Truth or Dare, but this one is even better! It is soft, elegant, very feminine. It's like a cashmere scarf in a bottle ;) The scent wraps you and keep you comfortable all day long. Longevity is amazing, sillage is great.
Very very good fragrance.

Bought blind because of the reviews, but I don't like this at all unfortunately. The top notes on me are 'greasy' rather than creamy. I don't get any neroli. I get sweet and rather sickly vanilla with an undertone of chemicals, almost like a mouth wash. Its too sweet for me initially, and then it turns sort of rancid. Honestly, its really unpleasant for me-maybe I have odd body chemistry. Disappointed, seeing as though so many people love it.

I already have the original truth or dare in the white bottle and like it a lot because it's heaving with creamy tuberose!

This was a blind buy and at first spray it felt very generic and mainstream. The vanilla is very prominent and normally im not a huge vanilla fan unless there's an exciting twist with it ( eg like in Midnight Poison). Vanilla scents seem to be two a penny these days.
I still had a heavy head cold so decided to set it aside and revisit it when my sinuses were not so clogged.
Im glad i did! Would you believe me if i said this reminds me of Thierry Mugler's Alien Essence Absolue without the jasmine bomb? It smells complex, sensual and expensive. Every time i smell my wrist i get a different note- sometimes sandalwood, sometimes oud, sometimes vanilla. Like a beautiful jewel sparkling in the light. Magical!

Gah! This is a stunner. I wasn't expecting to love this as much as I do. It's creamy and sweet without being sugary. It's orchid petals dipped in hot cocoa. So very pretty. It's not strong or overwhelming, it sits close but leaves a lovely trail. Longevity is 6 hours, longer on clothes. Sprayed a scarf to test it two days ago and it's still lingering.

It reminds me a lot of Kate Walsh Boyfriend, though not the exact same - this is definitely more floral. Truth or Dare Naked has a similar ambery/balsamic feel, yet it's much lighter and without the smoky, thick buttery aspect I get from KWB. I honestly like TorD Naked more. It's calmer and smells more like perfume than a room spray (compared to KWB).
Have to thank @jenniferlincoln for this bad boy. Love it!

I bought this unsniffed just the other day and got it for a song but this is just amazing stuff!!
On me it's kind of sweet and sofisticated with a soft note of aoud.Benzoin and cocoa mix very well in this fragrance leaving it feeling smooth and creamy.
Today I wore this to work and three of my female collegues told me I smelled gorgeous so eventually I had to write down the name of the fragrance for them.
but I guess they'll have a hard time getting it as it is discontinued and quite difficult to find.
Excellent sillage and about 12 hours longevity on skin

Coconut, tropical flowers, a weird synthetic perfume note. It's okay and I actually even kind of like it, but it's not really a good perfume. It smells like chemicals and things used to scent makeup and soaps. Still, it's feminine for all of that, like a brash woman who wears too much loud perfume but who is still the center of attention as soon as she enters a room. Not my personality, but still an interesting scent. My husband is gonna hate it.

What is this fabulous composition? It had me quite interested from the first whiff.
Stunning!

*7/10

•Edit (April 2015):
This scent did the opposite of grow on me. Instead, I got more tired of it and liked it less with every application. But don't get me wrong, it's quite nice and I'd admire it on anyone who chose to wear it, but it's not for me personally.

This is a little gem <3, I found it at one of my local stores for such a funny price that I don't even want to mention it. This is a beauty, if I didn't know which perfume it was, I would confuse it with something of a niche.

I have to say that for the most part I completely avoid celebrity fragrances, there have been a few that I absolutely love, but I can count them on one hand, this is one of those perfumes.

The bottle it self is gorgeous, I'm not too crazy about the cap ( it's a bit cheap looking and it's plastic covered in gold, kind of tacky ). But, since the price is so funny, it's nothing to complain about, everything else in this fragrance is perfection.

I smell smooth benzoin, cacao, with something sweet and flowery underneath it all. I don't smell any Aoud initially ( thank god ), but as it dries down, like hours later, I begin to smell a tiny bit of aoud, which to me smells like a decomposing dead body ( I have an insane sense of smell and aoud to me, smells just like a dead body laying in the morgue ). But like I already said, this smell only comes out after hours of great stuff, so no biggie.

This is one of my favourite perfumes ever made. A few sprays on the skin and fabric will last all day plus some - extraordinary. The oud note is very sexy and when mixed with subtle cocoa and the top florals, it makes for a very sensual experience. The final woody vanilla dry down is one of the best I have come across. Long story short, this is much, much more than just another cheap celebrity throw away and forget till the next celebrity of the minute comes around scent, this is truly a classic. Oh, and this fits men just as well, if not better, as women. It's very alluring in cold winters and translates well into what's going on in the warm indoors...let your mind wander. Conversely, it works just as well in inverse.

Well done. Very, very well done.

Mixed feelings here.

This is a soft long lasting fragrance composed mainly by a sweet accord (benzoin, cacao & vanilla orchid) tight with a very noticeable balsamic woodsy base (Texas cedar, sandalwood & oud).

Top notes are all flowers but to me they come out like a weird green smell that fades away quickly to leave space to the others ingredients listed above.

Like many other people here I think this perfume could be considered unisex and can be easily worn also by men. It reminds me a lot Givenchy's Pi.

Overall I am not satisfied as I was expecting something more sweet, warm and feminine. For this reason I prefer the original "Truth or Dare".

Nice! This reminds me a lot of Joop Le Bain, but less on-your face, less soapy, less "femme" than Le Bain - and though all those were "less than" - the scent might be "more of" - at least for me.

I think that scents like this with almost equal measures of floral and balsamic/woody notes are hard to come by - but very nice to actually wear. ToDN opens with beautiful but fleeting honeysucle aroma. Neroli makes a beautiful appearance in this - and the sweetness of benzoin is more understated than most of that cheap vanillic sweetness, so familiar from run-of-the-mill celebrity scents. I don't get much oud out of this, but there is nice woodiness on the base. A slight powderiness, too, can't exactly put my finger on it.

I don't really know how cocoa flower or vanilla orchid actually smell like (hmm, I do have vanilla orchid plants - very difficult to get blooming in this side of the earth) - but I like the floral accord of ToDN quite a bit - and I'm not really huge fan of florals. Definitely agree that confident man could pull this off. Not saying that this one is masculine, it just avoids the conventional male/female cliches of perfumery.

Both scents by Madonna would have probably benefited of slightly more upscale branding. This scent would be a brilliant one with quality ingredients - and perhaps some slight work tweaking the details. Bottle is beautiful, too, a more expensive price group would have probably allowed elimination of the visible seams of pressed glass.

Anyway, I'm happy to have this one in my collection. Long lasting, moderate to heavyish sillage depending on the trigger heaviness of your fingerrrrrr...

I was digging around in the old testers drawer at my work and came across this gem - I fell in love immediately and can't stop thinking about this! What a beautiful and unique scent. Very inviting and warm, the benzoin stands out to me most. Truth or Dare Naked is a perfect combination of my favourite things - vanilla and wood. I'm in love with this! One of the very, very few celebrity fragrances that I actually enjoy - and the only one that I LOVE.

This is a great little scent for the money. When L'occitane stopped producing L'Iparie and Amber in the little 13 quid bottles I was disappointed as they racked up the prices for similar scents. This is a gentle but sexy vanillic amber and whilst it may not stand next to the greats, the sillage and longevity weren't too bad on me and it makes a decent substitute for the others I've named. It also lacks the mean 'cleanness' of so many modern 'sleb' scents.

Is this really Madonna? I was schoked when I learned that this frag was coming from Madonna. I always imagined her smelling more like leather and musk then vanilla and cacao. Anyway, I totaly adore this fragrance. It's so warm and kind, I can totaly imagine wearing it to a Christmas dinner. It reminds me of apple pies, cinnamon sticks, hot chocolate... everything that is delicious and makes us happy. Charming!

I am going to try and not be biased because I LOVE Madonna. I am talking the Madonna who starred in Desperately Seeking Susan, the one who sang Burning Up in the nightclubs of New York City, the Like A Virgin Madonna. I grew up in the 80's and I was obsessed with her; I mean to the point where I was a different version of her for Halloween 5 years straight. Anyway, to me, her first fragrance smells like THAT Madonna. Quirky, bold, and in your face. It smells like the 80's; maybe it's the tuberose.

But this...is the Madonna we know in Like A Prayer and A League of Their Own, the grown up Madonna - a little darker, more mature, but still eccentric and daring.

Anyway, this is gorgeous. This is what I wanted Beyonce's Midnight Heat and Rihanna's Nude to smell like. It is spicy, rich, and feminine at the same time. It reminds me of something but I can't put my finger on what. If it comes to me, I will edit this review.

All in all, this one smells like the 90's and the first one is very 80's in my humble opinion. If you've smelled the first one and think it's a bit much, I highly recommend this flanker!

Considering the first Truth or Dare is an absolute beast for sillage and longevity, this is so soft.... Too soft!

Yes it's beautiful, but this is probably the weakest perfume I own. A true skin scent with no trail.
On the plus side, it's dirt cheap. If you're into re spraying I highly recommend it, it's perfect for winter.
It's creamy, sweet, spicy and a little woody.

I've since tried layering it with the original, they work well together :)

Amazing. I have a love hate relationship with this fragrance. It has to worn at the right outdoor temp and it's not warm. That's for me. My skin and My schnozz. It's rather spicy and almost even though the ingredients differ to what so many other here have pointed out; and I have that fragrance too. This and 'Roberto Cavalli's' EDP are very much alike. Cheers T.

I really didn't expect that much of this perfume, especially thinking it is a celebrity one. But this was such a pleasant surprise. It is one of my best cheap scents that I have. To me as well it is different to the "Truth or Dare" but I prefer this one. (I am not that big tuberose fan anyway). Yes it reminds me of something but I cannot remember what. It also brings a resemblence to Armani Code and to Amor Amor as others mentioned before. But I really don't care whether it lucks originality or not, since it is so cheap, but it doesn't smell cheap. And of course, since I cannot remember what it reminds me anyway. I think I will make it this winter's everyday fragrance. Unfortunately it doesn't have the sillage of "Truth or Dare", so for me it is a day perfume (well we have big and cold winter here and night comes at 16:00 so no problem).
It didn't have the apple cider reaction at my skin at all. It was warm, cozy and nice from the begining. Vanilla orchid, benzoin and sandalwood are the most distinct ingredients. I could smell the cocoa at the drydown though.
I give the smell 8.5/10.
Longevity s about 8 hours and sillage is moderate.

I adore this perfume. It is delicious and affordable. At first the smell reminded me of apple cider or something. Funny, since there is no apple accord or anything in this parfum. This was before I spritzed it on my skin, mind you. This parfum does amazing things on the skin. It is sexy and sophisticated. It is long lasting and dries down to a spicy vanilla caramel loveliness. I wear it to work and to bed. It is comforting and interchangeable. I love adaptability in my perfumes.

Nice scent, not that mature. The first spray smells like chocomania by The Body Shop and the dry down smells like a blend of Amor Amor by Cacharel and Viva La juicy by Juicy Couture with a cocoa twist. Sillage is not good but its ok we talk about Naked version ! Very good price for 75ml stuff.

Truth or Dare Naked is so beautiful, but boy when they added that word "Naked" they MEANT IT!!! This is definitely a skin scent. The original Truth or Dare is such an explosive sillage monster that it shocked me how mild Naked comes across.

Someone mentioned a resemblance to Viva La Juicy and I definitely agree. Not an exact copy but similar. They share that smooth, sweet like honey quality. As Naked dries down I can also smell a resemblance to Twilight Woods. I would say out of all the notes listed for Truth or Dare Naked the one that stands out the most is honeysuckle, which is just intoxicating to me.

Naked is sexy in a subtle way. It will draw someone in closer.... And closer...

I am getting used to this perfume, it is not my usual scent I wore it on a day I had to confront someone- seemed to be ideal for that! It's not pretty and soft, it last for so long and I get a lot of compliments when I wear it. The bottle looks like a flask.

I didn't buy Truth or Dare original as Fracas and Songes meet my penchant for the tropics or anything sultry. Naked is very similar to Halle Berry's namesake perfume, a celebrity frag all the way. This has little to redeem it, has been discontinued, so no need to bag it further.

I'm reading a lot of reviews saying that this has nothing to do with the original.
Well, i DISAGREE.

The same kind of floral, just turn down a little bit with a twist from the warm spices.
The Lilly of The Valley and the Orchid gives me a little aquatic floral vibe (same as the original, but not as strong).
The warm spices here keeps it more grounded than the first one. Reminds me a lot of Seductive Amber, with the warm vibe mixed with the floral (the difference being the VS fragrances smells like a soapy version of Naked).

Like a woman wearing the original baking some vanilla-cinnamon cookies.

Overall, you can totally get that this one is a flanker from the first one. The same core, the same soul, only directed to a different crowd. Maybe not brothers, but very close cousins.

Naked?? mmmhh !! I think I still have smelled this fragrance somewere ...

- As I already said it is not so much original as the first one ...

- It is too woody for me and it is not strong and heavy as the fist 1 ...

- Is not floral but spicy ... good for the winter and fall .

- When I first got it I really wanted to turn it back ...

if you go original, don't loose time with this perfume but buy the first one ;)

Wow I just got mine in the mail and sprayed it on my wrist and there is literally no scent to it. smells like a watered down after shave that vanishes in 5 seconds.no wonder places are selling it so cheap these days. I was really looking forward to the chocolate spicy scent. :(

Edit: ok I take my first line back, once this settled into my skin I could smell the warm spicy smell people are talking about. its wonderful and all but doesn't project or last longer than an hour, but I don't mind reapplying as the perfume is inexpensive.
I've been wearing it for 2 days now and had nothing but complements so other people must be smelling it haha

We're having an unseasonably cold August this year.
So I was looking through my perfumes for something warm and comforting and stumbled upon this. I bought this at the beginning of summer and thought it was OK.
The weather being colder now, I think it's more than OK, it's absolutely gorgeous!

I don't care much for the opening, it's just random white flowers on me. Thank goodness this only lasts about 10 minutes!
After that I get leather, benzoin and spicy woods. Benzoin just agrees with my chemistry. So yeah, this I love. The drydown is the best thing though. Boozy salted caramel with a hint of spice, chocolate and leather. LOVE!

Also, I get tons of compliments when I wear this. I've asked what it smells like and people always say it smells sexy and expensive. Nobody believes me when I say it's a perfume that's just costs 11 euros :-)

This could well become my signature winter scent.

Lovely skin scent. Something for cuddling up with your boyfriend all day whilst wearing nothing but one of his shirts. Or maybe something to spritz on your woolly jumper when you're making mulled wine, spiced cider and pecan pie.
Basically for pretty much the same use I'd have for something from Bath and Body Works like Twilight Woods, Cashmere Glow or Sensual Amber. But right now it's in the same price range and is of slightly better quality so that's what I bought.

Imagine a woman who would have been the epitome of elegance in the early 2000s and looks cheap and outdated wearing expensive designer clothes from 20 seasons ago :). That's what Naked smells like. I agree to the idea that this flanker is Madonna's way of apologizing for her truly daring first frag, that may have been a shock to noses rather accustomed to bubblegum traded as celebrity signature scents. She tried a vanillic-balsamic formula that is no stranger to the love of crowds. Unlike the Fracas lovers niche that was both enthusiastic and doubtful regarding Madonna's first attempt of conquering the world of scents, fans of Naked will say it is precious and lovely at the same time, while being safe and not overly cloying. I cannot help but compare Naked to Gaga's Fame, for they are both disconcerning and posess rather illusory qualities: strong first bursts, poor sillage and longevity. Don't get me wrong: I like Naked. It will be a great early September choice, with its sweet minty aura and the soothing, balsamic feel. But, when compared to the original, it is a disappointment. I had such high expectations...
P.S.: overall, it is a nice (is nice enough?), smooth and a bit playful vanilla, go for it if you enjoy this note

The best $19 I have ever spent. This scent is GORGEOUS, so smooth and ambery, spicy, sweet, woody, sexy. Naked is one of those perfumes that goes on loud, then settles into your pores like a second skin. All day long this baby keeps creeping up on you, I've gotten over 12 hours with it. I've also noticed that it smells better and obviously projects better when your skin is warm, it smells best and lasts longest in the crook of my neck and on the inside of my elbows. Oh, and it is almost a dupe for Hilary Duff's With Love, I noticed the similarities almost immediately and so did a friend of mine when I stepped into her car. However, Naked is more mature, tolerable and longer lasting. Ladies, treat yourself and try this!

I ended up ripping it open on my way home and sprayed it over my SOTD Al Oudh , the two together make quite a match . This will be getting quite a bit of use in the last few weeks of winter here and I just want to add the bottle is stunning !

I just got this one at TJ Maxx for $10! A really good deal for this scent! I already owned the original Truth or Dare, and was interested to see if this one would smell similar to the original. Be forewarned, this scent bears absolutely no similarities to the original, they're two completely distinct and separate scents!

That being said, I think this is a very warm and spicy scent with a lot of fruit in it. There's something mature and fun about this scent at the same time. The balsamic, woody, and spicy notes make it more mature and the fruitiness of it lightens it up a bit and makes it more fun! This scent is way less mature overall than the original, more suitable for a younger crowd. I have to say, I really like this scent, and I would gladly get another if I had the opportunity!

Honestly, I did not have any expectation when I ordered this. To my surprise, the bottle is very pretty and looks luxurious. I sprayed it once on my hand and once on my chest. The first impression is, "it is a mature version of Viva la Juicy!". The honeysuckle note is strong in the opening, just like Viva la Juicy. The floral notes of peach blossom and orchid give certain degree of sourness and elegance to the whole scent. The benzoin note brought out the sweetness and it gives a solid base. I did not detect any cacao nor white floral like orange blossom. But in general, this is a pleasant sweet feminine scent. If you look for a more longlasting and solid version of Viva la Juicy, I'd highly recommend this one.

I heard this fragrance will not be produced anymore and I saw it very cheap everywhere.

It reminds me of Roberto cavalli nero absolute but no longevity at all. I loved it so much and I though it would last like truth or dare, but I was very disappointed. It is warm spicy in the beginning and after 30 minutes turn to sweet spices and then disappears. I gave it to my mum, thought maybe it stays longer on her skin because lots reviewed it has a longlasting effect. Sillage very close to skin.

I think that this was intended to be a (younger, lighter) dupe of Coco by Chanel. Madonna already said she was inspired by Fracas on her original Truth or Dare Fragrance. And it is similar, just lighter and sweeter. T or D Naked seems to be inspired by Coco in the same way, whether Madonna will admit to this or not.

This perfume is so different to the first "Truth or dare". It's a blind buy because it wasn't distributed in Europe but I'm happy!On my skin I can detect benzoin, caramel, vanille and cocoa. So sweet, greedy and warm. The drydown is very interesting. It's minty, spicy and Woody, you can get a masculine aroma. So, dear men, you can wear it!
I think that this perfume is perfect for Autmn. "Naked" reminds me a 50% "Armani Code" and a 50% "Venezia" by Laura Biagiotti.

To my utter shock, this is a totally different perfume to the original Truth or Dare perfume, This isn't a simple add heavier top notes or swapping the one or two notes from the original. A total makeover which I have to say is 100 times better then the original. I love Madonna and when she officially released Truth or Dare I was excited, the woman doesn't do things by half as we all know! but the overpowering floral notes which has now lead to my hate of Neroli has sadly meant the bottle has been pushed to very little use now. This new version of Truth or Dare is such a highlight now I reach out for it far more then I have ever done for Truth or Dare original. I read that Neroli has been used again for this but I can not detect it at all, its a wonderful fresh sweet spicy mix of Honey, earthy tones, Peach and vanilla. Lingers on my skin for most of the day and I can only hope Madonna continues to deliver such quality from this perfume in many more new perfumes.

Not a Madonna fan, so I don’t seek out her perfumes. I tried “Truth or Dare” and found it to be a candy-sweet floral. “Naked” promised to be a heavier perfume with the presence of the sandalwood. Indeed, it started out as a rather rich floral for the first 10 minutes; sandalwood, peach blossom and neroli—fragrant, but not too “flowery”. Then, a very bold floral note popped out—I assume it was the vanilla orchid combined with the benzoin, as it was rich but very sweet, like candied flowers soaked in vanilla. I can’t put my finger on this note, but I’ve smelled it before. It’s not a vanilla like cake or frosting, but rather like vanilla duking it out with a pink flower. At first I thought of sweet peas, but now I see “vanilla orchid” listed and that makes sense, in particular combined with the benzoin.

There is a spiciness that comes out after about 2 hours; I think it may be the cacao and the cedar, but would swear there is coriander here—Naked almost smells like a “pinker” version of RC Oro, without the pepper and less coriander but with a similar spice. As this matures on my skin, the coriander-whatever spice is enhanced, and almost develops an anise-like quality. This is like the love child of RC Oro and ET Ellen! I really don’t smell much sandalwood, although as a sandalwood lover myself I like it in huge doses.
By the end, this is a spicy (coriander-anise) scent.

It has faded to be fairly light, but isn’t an insubstantial scent-it still manages to have some body to it. Sillage low-moderate, longevity about 3 hours and then it’s faded. Interesting and fairly unique, I would recommend this to those who want a light incense, or who love spicy scents that are not foody; or for the pink-floral lovers who want something with a bit of depth.

This perfume is extremely soft. It smells exactly like Armani Code Elixir. It is long lasting, I can still smell it after 5 hours. It has a soft, honey, orange scent. I would not buy it as I have just sampled this on my skin. Unfortunately, it is just a copy, and one tries to play it too safe.

This is a beautiful, light perfume and totally different from Truth or Dare. I do need to apply more of this one, but it has a beautiful soft, ambery scent. I'm not always sure if it is still there, but will smell it throughout the day. I would say it is very feminine and anyone would love it. I am nuts over Madonna's first perfume, but this is a nice choice with that Naked feel! Great bed-time fragrance.

I found a 1.7 bottle of this for less than $10 at my Walmart. This is a warm, woody, sensual scent. The benzoin dominates in this perfume and is followed by the sandalwood. My nose is still new, I am not able to detect the peach blossom, and the honeysuckle as I feel the benzoin smothers them. This is a very deep wood scent because of the sandalwood, cedar and the oud. Madonna is a unisex scent. The longevity is good on my skin (5 hours) but I think that the sillage is too soft for me. I need to have my nose to my wrist to smell it.

Lets be honest, this fragrance demonstrates Madonna's (perhaps reluctant) transition into the world of mainstream celebrity fragrance - populated by the likes of Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez. While 'Truth or Dare' ended up being a commercial belly flop, it definitely had something interesting to say - even if most of it was a reiteration of Piguet's sublime Fracas. Here, you have a fragrance that wasn't trying to copy anything and ends up smelling (to my nose) like a 50:50 mix of 'Amor Amor' by Cacharel and 'Blue Sugar' by Aquolina. Such is the way with hastily-put-together flankers...
Having said that, apart from a borderline-unpleasant chemical opening, this fragrance does little to offend and would suit a well-scrubbed eighteen year old as she celebrates her coming-of-age out on the town.

"MMMMMMMMmmm" is the only phrase I can use to describe this scent! I read the reviews over and over again and noticed that the word "masculine" was used quite a few times. IMO it isn't "masculine" but I think that a confident man could definitely pull it off. I recently received mine, have used it twice (evening events) and have gotten nothing but positive comments. One person stopped to ask what I was wearing then smiled and said "You smell like such a wonderful vanilla". It doesn't smell feminine on me and I'm so happy that I went through with this blind buy. I am definitely going to stock up on this beauty.

I was not wowed by this after wanting to try it for a long time. That being said I think it would be lovely on an exotic vacation or at a beach resort. The smell reminds me of cocoa or shea butter that one might slather themselves with at the beach. Very relaxing. Also a polar opposite of the original Truth or Dare.

Madonna's T.O.D.NAKED strikes me as a scent that could have been around in the late 70s',somewhere along the lines Of Vintage CHLOE or Vintage HALSTON perhaps, a softer more Modern version of those I suppose, anyway I Really Like NAKED and I think Madonna got this right with it's juicy almost ripe "peachy" opening and slight herbal tones and it's soft sweet amber dry-down that sits close to the skin and deserves the name NAKED, You can tell that Madonna took the Time and Effort to make her perfumes High Quality, you can even See the rich essential oils that were used ,after you spray it on there's a slight Shine on your skin in the dry down, A TRUE EAU DE PARFUM!

Dear Readers,
What can I say about Madonna's naked perfume, well..here it goes.

I was given this perfume since I became a fan of Madonna's Truth or Dare fragrance (the white bottle) and this naked fragrance surely sounded very exotic and sensual by the notes.

Well, I must say, Im not In love nor severely disappointing sincerely with the fragrance of Naked. Its very feminine and it is a tad sensual but extremely soft and inoffensive but it has a "please everyone" kind of scent that will suit practically any female chemistry.
This perfume failed in originality and exoticism, I was hoping for a fine feminine Oud or atleast wild bold Honeysuckles, but I could not detect them in this fragrance at all.
The fragrance did not make me fall in love nor dislike it, I guess it falls into the " fair like" in my book.

This perfume smells pretty but it lacks a iconic aroma which I was expecting more by Madonna with such a provocative title to this perfume, but the scent is very ordinary, pretty and feminine that you can find at Victoria Secret's boutique in their perfume area.
I feel this suits more the general taste of the masses,since this isn't a diva scent. It has that soft, flowery vanilla scent to it that will complement a lot of women and this fragrance is extremely soft and light, very perfect for office and day wear, but blends a lot with your current female fragrances these days.

This perfume is also being discontinued sadly along side its sister Truth or Dare, its sad news to hear ,so if your into vanilla,flowery with a touch of musk scents, this is your gal, good as starter scent or light n casual wear.
Will I wear this again, No..I wont since iam currently looking for a signature scent for the night and day, and Naked by Madonna wont be crown my signature for sure.

The common thread, I think, between this and the original is the benzoin. Both fragrances feature that sort of resinous, candied scent.
There's a strong raw vanilla smell here. Slightly boozy. Not the cotton candy variety of Pink Sugar. In a way, I find the vanilla in Naked to be similar to the sweetness in Flowerbomb. Musky vanillic.
The cacao also has that more floral than gourmand feel. Probably because it's "cocoa flower". Never personally encountered one of those, but I get the idea.
I also smell a significant amount of peach blossom in here. It's very peachy, but not that syrupy peach often found in the compositions of Sophia Grojsman.
Oud is present but balanced nicely by the cedar so it doesn't overtake everything as it's often prone to do.
Overall I'd say Naked is easier to love, and that opinion is affirmed by the votes in comparison to the original. I'm personally a bigger fan of the original, but I love beastly white florals which isn't a genre that's super in fashion at the moment.
I think this is one for fans of Obsession and similar.

Both of the Madonna Truth or Dare perfumes are head and shoulders above the rest of the celebrity scents. This Truth or Dare Naked is completely different from the first, flowery Truth or Dare. It has very good longevity, medium silage, linear, and is a sophisticated scent, woodsy and sweet chocolate with a touch of mint and honeysuckle. I don't know where the mint comes from, but it's there. I do like this better than her other T or D, although I enjoy that too. Unique perfume for a unique woman. She didn't phone these in as someone took some time on this one. The best part is I got it for $15 on amazon.com

I smell heliotropin in this. In general it is quite lovely, very creamy and warming. yes there are synthetic elements in the overall impression, but only if you look for them. Naked does have its own identity even if it is a little mild. I'd say this would sell much better if it was launched as a Dior hypnotic poison flanker, with deluxe flacon and a huge push from the PR department.

First I will hang my colours on the mast - I like this.

I think it must be almost or wholly synthetic because my poor old brain doesn't know what to make of it and what I am smelling does not match up at all well with the notes attributed to it.

At times it is wafting cocoa, vanilla, and patchuli and other times fruity, orangy, musk.

The whole drys down to a sugary lemon pulp; on a bed of cocoa, vanilla, and patchouli; wrapped up in crushed almond, apple, and amber; with the occasional hint of minty resin.

I tried it blind on a couple of relatives and crushed apple, creamy, almond, vanilla, sugary lemon, sharp came up as descriptors.

It reminds me of Angel then Hot Couture, then sugary lemon pancakes.

It is soft, little projection, little sillage, a quick dry down then rather linear, not long lasting, needs quite a few spray, and is nice. Weak compared to Truth or Dare.

Very interesting experience trying something my brain couldn't match up with any of my essential oils

Edit to shorten 15/02/2014
Update 25th February, 2014

A quick update to say that the cotton wool I sprayed with this perfume some two weeks ago still smells very strongly of this perfume so quite tenacious.

At first it had a lot of the minty resinous accord but that has calmed down and it is quite a peachy, benzoin, minty amber.

This perfume gives a cool freshness in my nose so quite a mentholated feel, icy.

This pefume does remind me of Roberto Cavallis with the same balmy vanillic notes and the orange flowers aswell. But to me in this Madonna Nude perfume there is a slight note of pepper and also somthing that to my nose smell a bit like fresh eucalytus , infact the eucalyptus freshnes lingers quit strong on my skin, It is kind of weard mixed with all the warmth
I do get some florals lifing the creation up a bit , the honeysucle and peach blossom softens the sweetenes a bit. But still this is absolutly sweet on my skin,
Initialy my thoughts straight away when i sprayed it on skin was a resemblens to Flowerbombe, but this has slightly more bright florals to it aswell, but it is to me the same type of balsamic perfume.I can not find any trase of Aoud in the creation.. luckely for me cause i cant stand that note anymore
I am not shure if im going to enjoy this perfumes as much as i hoped ,It might be a bit to cloyingly sweet ,almost honey and caramell like in away.
But realy not bad for the price and the fact that this is a Madonna perfume

I dont know how to begin to describe how much i love this scent! I have read al reviews below and im supprised how different people persive this scent! Some say its the most wonderful thing ever (a fully and totaly agree) and others states that it smell from womit?? We have all different noses and because of what we may conect with a sertian smell far back can later affect how we react to a perfume i guess! I can think of the unhappy girl that associated this scent with memories from school and someones puke, i can guess that it is the prominent and a bit bitter scent from sandalwood combined with a hint of burnt rubber synthetic oud that can be the cause of that! To me its a lovely mostly sandalwoody scent, softned by some benzoin and sweet chocolat. To me the flowers is there but i cant say its this or that flower, i feel a small hint of cedar as well, the oud is only just barely present in the beginning and soon evaporates! My overall impression of this scent is that it is a woody warm, a little bit sweet but the sweetness i well balanced by the a bit bitter woody notes! I also think that this scent is from the beginning to the end fully synthetic ( that dont make it bad!!) and i also believe that woody, warm rounded scent mostly comes from Iso E Super, a substance known from the famous Molecule 1, thats my impression! I think thats why it makes this scent attract both men and women, i think its very feminim but also very unisex, this scent is a very personal scent! Many says a perfum can wear you but this scent, if you like it, YOU wear! It has excellent sillage and great longavity, lasts at least 6-7 hours on me and people notice it on me but its so soft and pleasant so it does not suffocate anyone! After many hites and misses i have finally found MY signature!! (please please let it stay on the market....) Ohh, wanted to say also to the girl that had a bad experience with a fake, you can find it on Ebay UK from Onlinebeautybuys/allbeauty/cheapsmells, they sell the real stuff!!

It smelt sickly - I put it down to being unwell when I recieved it, to the point I associated it with sick (I'd been very ill)! I love the original but found this to be synthetic, harsh and sickly sweet. I've never had a fragrance make me feel so bad before!

This is a powdery, musky, warm vanillary scent... I smell mostly sweet orchid and honeysuckle, fruits, a little creamy wood and amber (even though it's not listed here). I think it is a sensual scent but I wouldn't go so far as to say it smells sexy; it's just light, pretty and a little flirty... something that wont offend in an office environment.

Wonderful! If you have tried RC Nero Assoluto - well, yes they are like sisters but Madonna Naked is more, a lot more. More longlasting, more dark (great), very sexy, a bit sweet, but oud, vanilla and sandalwood are dominant in a good womanish way. Blends perfect with my skin and I love it!

Härlig! Om man har provat RC Nero Assoluto, tja - de är som systrar men Madonna naked är mer, mycket mer. Mer hållbar på huden, mer mörk (superbt), sexig, aningens söt men oud, vanilj och sandelträ är dominanta på ett bra och feminint sätt. Matchar min hud perfekt och jag älskar den!

This is so sensual and at the price I bought 3 bottles and lotions. I spray it often. I will be out my supply in about six months. It doesn't last and the top note is alcohol. I use it as a body spray because it fades so quick and I love powerful scents. It works really well layered with CK Obsession and original Truth or Dare. One of my faves ever, lacks longevity, well worth it to buy and then some.

I will probably come back to update this review but this smell so good! I read some reviews on here saying this is masculine sorta...no, no, no its not. To me it smells just like clean skin, like after taking a bath with a nice creamy smelling moisturizing bar...I could definitely wear this everyday as a signature scent. It smells just like the name..I tried Rihanna Nude and it smelled fruity I didn't like it...this on the other hand and smells like perfume not fruity I love both perfumes good job Madonna :) plus I like the bottle its shape is perfect for traveling and applying

This was a love at first sniff!
Warm, softly spiced, woody, a bit eucalyptusy(I'm not sure which element this comes from) and creamy . Subtly sweet.....this is scrumptious! I feel that Naked is a great name for this as it does remind me very much of warm skin. Whereas the first Truth or Dare shouted, this one is a come-hither sly whisper....
I have never smelled anything quite like this!

Well, was this not a pleasant surprise?
The previous creation using Madonna's name was totally not up my alley. I did not have high expectations towards Naked, but some good reviews convinced me to test it. Time and effort not wasted.

While Truth or Dare Naked is maybe not made of the finest ingredients in the world and does not smell awfully expensive, it is nevertheless a well made scent with a nice balance of floral and sweet. It has a honey-like quality to it, thick and sweet, with lots of neroli, honeysuckle and woody undertones. I really enjoyed wearing it and will definitely keep this one for a longer while with me.

I just got this out of Walmart. The gift set was on sale for a steal. I had been eyeing it ever since I sprayed the sample on my wrist. I had been obsessing over it and trying to decide to treat myself. I finally did and I am in love! This scent is indescribable and I adore any perfume with benzoin. If you don't have it, I would suggest you get it because you wont regret it!

I am a man and I wear this. It's perfectly unisex imo. I have never had more compliments on a fragrance in my life by men or women. It doesn't smell feminine on me at all. Perhaps the ingredients just go with your body chemistry? I actually get mildly annoyed by how many compluments I get wearing this. It reminds me of a better, more sensual version of Givenchy Pi for men. This, however, is much better by a mile.

I don't understand why so many people associate any perfume that has sandalwood in the base notes or anything else oriental as being masculine? Many people do the same with any perfume that has a deep colour to it. There is nothing masculine about the perfume I would definitely consider this to be actually an extremely gorgeous sexy and very much feminine perfume!

This perfume reminds me of a perfume of the past I just can't put my finger on it. After reading the notes it contains above I can now say in hindsight that I can definitely smell those notes but I still feel it smells quite apricot. Maybe that's what my nose is picking up because of the combination of peach blossom and honeysuckle.

This perfume is delicious - I love it. I get warmth and feminine vibes from it and to sum it up:
-apricot ( what I interpreted from the peach blossom and honey suckle)
- vanilla
- incense (very lightly)
- sandalwood (love love love)

I associate darker juice with old fashioned parfums

This is so nice, so rich and indulgent. When I first spray it I get an almost minty and masculine aroma. It's very aromatic like lavender and amber together with some cologne, basil and mint. It must be the Oud. It smells very unisex and something to be shared. Then as it dries down it becomes balmy and very warm and mellow.

I find a lot of similarities with Thierry Mugler's Alien Absolue with both having a rich butterscotch feel. I smell the cocoa, oud and benzoin for sure along with a honey amber richness bringing it all together. I find this scent very original as I have never smelt another fragrance that smells exactly like this. It's a big departure from the usual celebrity sticky sweet scents that get mass produced and released every minute.

This is definitely a scent of confidence, ambition and someone not afraid to announce their presence.

Admittedly, I am not a fan of Madonna's first foray into the world of perfumery (Truth or Dare.) Her second attempt (Truth or Dare Naked) has a totally different vibe than her first perfume and I am really happy about that! Her first perfume was mature, too mature in my opinion, but this one is younger, more unique and easier to wear. It's very warm, smooth, woody, sun kissed with a touch of sweetness and blended perfectly. Easily unisex. I don't get much of the floral notes coming out on my skin and that's fine with me. The lasting power is also quite decent. I was surprised that I liked this so much. I wasn't expecting to. It does not smell anything like a typical celebrity perfume. I read somewhere recently that Madonna was asked when she was going to release another perfume. Apparently she seemed irritated at the thought of it making one assume she was not happy with her entry into the perfume market. It doesn't look like we'll be getting another perfume from her any time soon, if ever. It's a shame really. Truth or Dare Naked is one of the very best celebrity fragrances to be found these days. Unfortunately, it seems as though it's getting harder to find. This one's worth hunting for so if you can find it, take my advice and buy it! Worth every penny!

I had high hopes for this one, what with it being fall and the warm, honeyed, woodsy nature of this scent. I snagged a gift set with 3.4 oz bottle and full sized lotion at CVS for $24! Lovely scent, very different from the celeb scents out there but it's practically undetectable on my skin shortly after spraying. I would've felt ripped off paying full price for a perfume with such poor staying power. Sadly, I'm going to have to return.

This was a total surprise. I had passed over this one many times but today, providentially, it was on offer so I stopped to have a quick spritz. It stopped me in my tracks. Must have been a devine appointment.
I immediately liked this one. A smooth honeyed, warm, earthy perfume.
I am intrigued by this perfume, partly because it reminds me of something a great lady from my childhood wore (grateful for any suggestions here!). She had great taste in perfumes and it was on her dresser that I first saw many of the classic perfumes of the time. There's something modern, yet timeless about this fragrance.
OK, lasting power is not great on me but I will live with it quite happily.

There is so much character in this one. This one feels more Madonna to me than the original Truth or Dare - which was notoriously compared to Fracas but I love anyway. (The original Truth or Dare smells more Madonna's mom than Madonna.) This one's a very unique scent and sits on the fence of androgyny. On spraying, it feels gives off a balmy/minty vibe with a mix of vanilla creaminess. It calms down very slowly, but stays on the skin for a long time. The sillage is also great but it's nice in that it's not loud and offensive. It's rather welcoming actually.

Wow! This is intoxicating and sweet. First spray is a blast of grape jelly, tooth ache sweetness. Cocoa and vanilla orchid round out the top, mellowing the grape jelly. The only thing I think this has in common with Madonna's first fragrance is the potency and lasting power. Over sprayed this could be a real head ache inducer, but it truly is uniquely sweet, rich floral. This was love at first smell!

This is definitely quite a unique scent. I've never smelled a fragrance quite like this before. I'm a huge fan of the original Truth or Dare, and a huge fan of Madonna too. When I bought this, I'll admit, I wasn't too crazy about it.

It was winter when I bought it, and it smelled so odd and sterile on me in the icy dryness of a Kentucky Winter.

Now that it's hot and humid, I decided to try it out again to see if I could kindle some adoration for this, since Madonna is my everything.

HEAT BRINGS OUT THE BEAUTY OF THIS FRAGRANCE.

On my skin, it's a sweet, balmy, myrrh-esque second-skin of benzoin, sandalwood, and cacao. NOT chocolate. People really need to do their research before they start talking about the notes, because anyone that's ever smelled a cacao flower would know that that's what gives this perfume that beautiful, unique edge. Cocoa flower does not smell like chocolate, just as peach blossom does not smell like peaches.

Essentially, it's a floral, balmy sandalwoody benzoin fragrance. Totally unique, very different from anything else I've ever smelled, and truly an underrated masterpiece.

I bought this online and just recieved it in the mail this morning. I have only been wearing it about 30 minutes but I had to write an initial impression, and will update after I have worn the fragrance for a while -

Truth or Dare Naked is wonderful so far. I can get a hint of the peach blossom and just a little of the clean neroli, but overall the fragrance is warm, slightly spicy, and definitely balmy. The cacao definitely makes a big impression. I expected it to be maybe a little more "chocolatey" but it is more of the unprocessed version of cacao (whereas Rihanna's Rebelle is more of a processed, foody version, for another celeb fragrance comparison). There is a little bit of a sandalwood note teasing right now, kind of there one second and gone the next, maybe a little foreshadowing of what's to come. There is a round quality about this fragrance - and by that I mean no sharp florals, no notes that really jump out and assault the senses. It is cozy, with just the right balance of sweetness. Soooo very nice! This fragrance started out so well, I can't wait to see how it progresses!

As the weather outside is cool and cloudy, I think this fragrance feels appropriate. Warm, sunny weather wouldn't suit this fragrance well. So far a very solid buy.

UPDATE: After wearing this for the whole day I am still satisfied with my purchase. As time passed the fragrance continued to soften, kind of melting into the skin. I was disappointed that I didn't get more sandalwood on my skin, but that is really my only complaint. The fragrance remained slightly spicy all the way til the end and the slight sweetness (from the floral notes, I presume) from the beginning really faded away over time.

I enjoyed wearing Truth or Dare Naked! I think the name of the fragrance is very appropriate. Great for cool weather as it comes across very cozy to me.

I just got this in the mail today. I had ordered it under the impression that because of what was in it, it would make up for the complete disappointment I felt towards the first Truth or Dare. It had done so and more!

Upon smelling it I was incredibly overcome by its sensual blend of scents. The neroli is the first note I noticed and then slowly peach, honey, sandalwood and the copal-esque essence of benzoin. It is simply beautiful! The frangance just blossoms over time.

The packaging is incredibly clean and minimalist- streamlined with an almost relic appearance. Which was surprising and quite the antithesis of the first Truth or Dare's bold, heavy and dark appearance with an impenetrable white bottle. However, unfortunately, the first did not live up to it's branding.

Despite its very woody and earthy notes, this is incredibly shear when worn. "Naked" is a good word for it. "Nude" would've been better. It creates a very warm and alive sensation. Invokes an essence of being suspended in a state of sensual readiness. Well to me anyway.

After a couple of hours of wearing it, its not heavy, over powering or invasive. Even upon first misting yourself with this, this scent just meanders and saunters and lingers hauntingly. It fades and blends in with my chemistry perfectly.

The first should've been called Truth and this one Dare. Although, I recall someone posting an question about wearing them together. They smell absolutely horrible together upon first layer. The gardenia of ToD is incredibly over powering for ToD Naked. But within minutes the neroli and sandalwood even it out and it becomes quite an exotic scent. I did Naked, ToD, and then Naked; 2 parts Naked 1 part ToD. The other way was simply terrible to me.

This smells like an expensive version of Twilight Woods by Bath and Body Works and This is the how it was supposed to smell version of BBW TW.

At first spray is a bit "gagging" like my DH says...it is very sweet!!! but not pink sugar, Victoria secret, bath and body works sweet which is good...My 9 year old says this smells like grape juice when I first spay this...I do smell the grapey syrupey note that she talks about....It starts out very fruity which I do not like but the fruity notes tame right away and that's when the warm sweet milky woody notes come out and that's when I fall in love. It has a coconutty vibe.

This is good for the office as it is close to the skin unless you bathe in it and it would still be soft.

I wear this when I want a comfy, comforting, and sweet scent. I think it smells sexy but not sex kitten sexy or mystery woman with red lips and black dress sexy...it's like pretty girl sexy...the sweet pretty girl with the cute outfits and dresses!!!!

I think and woman 20+ can wear this...because who says Grandma's can't be pretty? I know mine is!

this is..also...like your skin scent but better...ideal for cool, warm but not hot weather! I can speak about the longevity on my skin as my skin sucks and perfumes disappear immediately, however, I did spray it in my hair at 7am and it is 6pm and it is still strong!!!!

I like it a lot and I may repurchase.

Where can I find it? I'm from Italy and although we do have her first fragrance, for some reason they decided not to sell the second down here! I'd like to blind buy this one? Anyone can help?

Normally I detest the whole celeb/pop/rock star foray into the perfumery market so steer clear of these scents...but I gotta say.....

Tried a few sprays one day....went back again...another few squirts....low & behold...few weeks later..more tries...HAD to buy it!!!! Damn it ...it drew me in & WON! I think I shocked myself.
I think this is such a beautiful warm sexy scent, that if it was'nt endorsed by any familiar pop culture icon I would have guessed it to be created by some obscure, niche, boutique perfumer that costs lots of $$$$

I get a slight 'fruity' vibe in the top & middle notes (which must be the peach blossom), but the dry down is an incredibly warm,sweet,spicey,floral ambery musk.
It is a very very comforting scent & I am so so pleasantly suprised & taken by it.

My ONLY complaint is I wish the longevity was better.
But it just means I keep reapplying it at regular intervals to experience all it's facets & note cascade again. Which I don't mind at all.

Madonna...your collaboration in this creation is wonderful!! More respect to you.

I really disliked the first ... I felt that it was a more personal scent that she was going after (Her mother) - it really missed the mass "Madonna" market. Lets face it, there is a overwhelming consensus about what a fragrance with Madonna's name attached should convey. It also appears that we can't talk about the newer NAKED without viewing an opinion on her original TRUTH or DARE.

Okay, on to this scent - I "Think" I like it, I say "Think" because I find it very very subtle, so much so I questioned if I was coming down with a sinus infection. It's very soft and subtle but its a warm spicy kind of subtle, creamy vanilla soft. Kind of a half-way expectation of what you would expect from Madonna. It is all cozy and warm and even though I still see it as coming up a bit shy of the whole Madonna expectation it all in all is a very pleasant elixer. I would give it a ❤❤❤ out of 5.

Warm, soft, sweet, cozy. I like this a lot. Its much different than the first Truth or Dare. I smell sandalwood a lot, and benzoin, but no flowers or woods. Without looking at the notes, I would guess there is amber in here. It has a sweet ambery scent, sweet but not sugary. This is definitely on my wish list.

osmanthus, jasmine, and nevertheless swirling muguet. This bunch of dirty floral plus some woodsy, thick layer of cocao vanilla and animalic musky tone, booya, this is this perfume.

floral part gets more and more metallic/bloody after 10 mins.

je n'aime pas trop ce parfum trop sucré, écoeurant.
Madonna a fait dans la facilité, elle suit la tendance actuelle sans grande originalité.
Là elle concurrence directement Lady Gaga.

I have to say straight up that I am a Madonna fan from way back and the only reason I bought this is because it is a MADONNA fragrance. I loved the first perfume she did and was particularly attracted to the bottle. I know I'm probably the only person in the world that thinks this, but I was hoping she would release her first fragrance in an intense version! That same bottle for Nude is now clear and unfortunately it just doesn't look all that great. The quality of the glass is pretty budget, and overall it just looks a bit cheap.

The fragrance itself is like a watered down mens' aftershave. It is a nice boozy blend of amber, vanilla and oud, but never becomes as complex as I would like it to be. I've worn it to work and it does last for ages, but something is missing. After the buzz that was her first fragrance, Nude feels like the B-side of one of her singles. Familiar, enjoyable and worth a look but ultimately forgettable and just not all that great.

Oh, Oh, OH....I really love this one! It has excellent sillage and lasting power. If you are a fan of sandalwood you will love this. It is definitely creamy woods, vanilla, and sparkling flowers...as mentioned above. Actually one of the best I've smelled in a while!

Very different from the original, that's for sure. TorD Naked is a nice mixed bag of wood, airy flower fruit blossom, and spices. Again, I am using the term "fruit-chouli" here as it creeps underneath this hearty layer.
The drydown is my favorite part as the scent becomes a mild cinnamony wood with lightand fresh floral accord with the rich plasticky benzoin. Not too sweet, not too heavy (unless you overspray!)
I like how peach blossom gives the fruity floral character too. Everything is just right for me and blends very well together. I find it more unisex and much more enjoyable than her original one and probably will gain more male fans.

Madonna's Truth or Dare Naked smells more like Rihanna's Nude. The only real diffrence between Madonna's, and Rihanna's is that Rihanna's is more sweet / citrus, and Madonna's is straight up warm spicy / woody. I really like both of them, and I can't chose between the two, because I think they are equally great. Naked is Defintley better than the orginal Truth or Dare, as I did not like it. I really wish she would of put Naked out first Instead, because it's way better. Most of the time I prefer more warm spicy / woody scents, especially this time of year.( Winter )

First of all, nothing in common with Rihanna Nude!!
Very very nice scent, I like Naked, it isn't a tamed version of Truth or Dare, it is a different scent, it smells like a high quality perfume, I am impressed. I kind of knew I would like it, as the first one is to my nose a tuberose bomb,which is fine if you like lots of it, and I don't. Naked has something unique about it, the woods in the heart aren't dry, the scent remains creamy, and seductive, my husband likes it, which is a plus. I think that different note might be the cocoa flower, it is sweet yet a tad bitter, it is really working well. You can tell they worked hard on that scent, it is put together beautifully. The vanilla is also not sickly sweet. I believe the lovers of the original will beat this one down, when it is such an intriguing scent, and vice versa. To be fair, the original was really exclusive for tuberose lovers, Naked has a wider appeal, still it speaks to my senses.
I will add that Naked is not masculine at all.

when I smelled the Madonna naked, it smelled so familiar to me. I went back around the counter trying to find where I had smelled it, and it was Jimmy Choo, though I'm not sure which tester was out (EDP or EDT, it was not the black bottle)......just didn't think to check, but it smells exactly the same to me as Madonna's Naked. I sprayed two pieces of paper later on after my nose rested, and I literally could not tell the difference between the two.

I like Jimmy Choo EDP and got a bottle for Christmas, so I don't see any reason to buy Madonna's Naked, though I do think it is a lovely fragrance.

I was really interested to see how Truth or Dare Naked favored in comparison to Truth or Dare. The notes seemed much more unisex in comparison to the incredibly feminine original, and the bottle looked much edgier and fun.

When I got the fragrance last week I was just as apprehensive to spray it as I was for Truth or Dare. I didn't know if it was going to be as powerful and intoxicating as the original, but after one spritz I was pleasantly surprised.

The peach blossom is evident, yet not as demanding as the gardenia is in Truth or Dare. There is an underlying minty tone that comes out about 5 minutes after the perfume is sprayed, and the scent transforms into a very seductive and actually quite masculine scent. I guess that may be in part of the Agarwood or oud note of the fragrance, but it is terrific. My nose can't really detect any of the other notes at the moment, but 12 hours after spraying it I can still faintly smell it on my wrists.

In regards to it's sister fragrance, Truth or Dare Naked is completely the opposite, a yin and yang comparison when looked at or sprayed side by side. Truth or Dare itself is very powerful, floral, and long lasting while the Naked version is very soft, seductive, and masculine while still containing that longevity. It doesn't have as strong of a sillage as Truth or Dare did, but it is still very pleasing.

In all honesty, I much prefer Naked over Truth or Dare. The bottle is very neat, and the tan liquid that moves inside the glass canister is a sign of the masculinity that resides inside the perfume. I think it's more suitable for men than women actually, but that's just a side note. Truth or Dare was a little too powerful for my taste, and Naked is more my style.

It's always more fun to be naked anyways...

Very understated, soft. Similar notes as Revlon Unforgettable, Cher Uninhibited and Ellen by Ellen Tracy. The tail end contains the scent of Ben-Gay. Benzoin my guess. This is like toilet water that you have to re-apply every 15 minutes. OK frag if you have money to burn. I still love her first fragrance!

I actually like this one better than the first.

This is straight up cocoa butter and a hint of butterscotch. Smells so nice and sweet and beautiful. It starts of a bit strong, though not as strong as the original TorD. The lasting power isn't very good and that's WITH the bodo lotion layered. The original has this one beat, there. I like this bottle and ad more, though. Very nice colored juice. Hope this one sells well enough for Madonna to make a third since I've heard that her first wasn't the massive seller it should've been :(

Not liking this one so much. Cacao with peach blossom and something oddly sour, cold and metallic that turns into a cheap, medicinal, slightly mentholated (this might be what the' minty' note to some people is) oudh. It makes me feel uncomfortable wearing it because its simply doesnt work with all those ingredients squished together. A lot more mainstream, gourmand and less in your face than the original, but clearly a thoughtless fragrance that was designed to appease the lollipop guild who cant handle the original. No trace of the original here apart from the amber. A weak, uninspiring and careless exercise in perfumery that comes off smelling like sugared up, cacao-tainted ointment. I love the first one but this one deserves a quick burial. P.S. The bottle is clear with dark coloured juice.

I too much prefer the original Truth or Dare. The notes of the Naked version really sounded intriguing but after receiving mine, I was profoundly disappointed. The scent was subtle and had no lasting power on me; within twenty minutes the scent was barely discernable. Hope they don't discontinue the original version.

Just bought this at Macys... And I'm ASTOUNDED. Her first fragrance was so classy and womanly, bursting with tuberose freshness and dark class...this one is completely different. It's much lighter, but quite seductive. It's very warm with fresh vanilla, and it definitely sparkles with honeysuckle and musk. It's so unique, the it smells so warm in the cold weather these days. Madonna definitely has another winner this season!

Who is the numbnut who stated they hate it already. Liar. You have not tried it yet. I'm gonna mark it as a "love" just to balance it out.

ANYhoo, looking forward to testing this, based on the notes alone. Though I must admit, I am not sure what "cocoa flower" is... I'm hoping that that cedar & oud really stand out and carry it all the way down... I'm looking for a good feminine cedar and oud.
