Rogue by Rihanna

Rogue by Rihanna

This is the fourth perfume Rihanna has released, and this time her new release veers away from the fruity, feminine scents she’s become known for. Rogue is more sophisticated, very sensual and, surprisingly, not just for women. Deep bass notes of musk, amber, wood, vanilla and patchouli are gorgeous when combined with lemon blossom, cyclamen, bergamot and pink peppercorn, jasmine, rose, suede and plum.

Truth or Dare by Madonna

Truth or Dare by Madonna

Madonna took her inspiration for Truth or Dare from her mother’s perfume, but there’s nothing old lady about this fragrance. Although it has a very retro feel to it, with heavy undertones of tuberose and gardenias, it’s modern, fresh and floral. The raunchy commercial used to promote the perfume, in true Madonna fashion, caused an uproar with its use of S&M bondage scenes. (Getprice.com.au, $40)
