THE pop star appeared at Macy’s in New York for the launch of her fragrance, which she said was inspired by her mother, Truth Or Dare.

Floral and wood combined with the scent of vanilla and caramelised amber set the aroma apart from other floral fragrances – a combination that Madonna says reminds her of her mother.  “My mother was always wearing Fracas and I always remember her smell, but particularly when I would wake up early in the morning and I would come into my parents bedroom and had a couple of hours of quality time with them,” she said. “And I always smelled the smell of gardenias and tuberose on my mother, so I wanted to create a fragrance that reminded me of her.”      –TG
