Lady Gaga - FAME

FAME launched in the US and UK yesterday, and will be launching worldwide on the 1st September. I'm not going to attempt to describe the scent to you, I wouldn't even know where to begin. I'm not a massive perfume-head so I literally would be the shittest person to "review" this. So, this is the description from The Perfume Shop:

"Lady Gaga Fame is the first ever black Eau de Parfum that sprays clear and becomes invisible once airborne.

The fragrance has a unique structure called the "push-pull technology," where the ingredients interact together to highlight different olfactive aspects of each note at the same time, without any hierarchy.

The scent is built around three main accords: dark, sensual and light.

The dark accord was inspired by Belladonna, the deadly nightshade possessed by haunted beauties since the 18th century.

From this darkness, the fragrance evolves to a sensual accord of opulence, a fusion of dripping honey, saffron and apricot nectar.

And lastly, the light accord whispers magnificence. The rich floral layer of crushed Tiger Orchid and Jasmine Sambac embodies timeless beauty.

The accords work together to create a fragrance of floral and fruity elements, with the star ingredient inspired by Belladonna leveling out the whole fragrance and giving Lady Gaga Fame its signature as a scent"

Yup, it does NOT smell of blood and semen, which I'm slightly thankful for. There are three different sized bottles, a 30ml, 50ml, and a 100ml. The 100ml is labelled as "The Ultimate Masterpiece". The only difference between this version and the others, besides the amount, is that TUM has a metal cap, not plastic. It makes the bottle fairly heavy but it also feels more expensive and luxurious. Safe to say I'm completely in love with this perfume. If you get a chance, head down to your local Perfume Shop, or even Boots/Superdrug and give it a whiff. There's also a shower gel and body lotion, both black liquid, available from the same places. Harrods has the exclusive to the soap, which is of similar shape to the "vessel" (egg) Gaga attended an awards show in.

  1. I'm not usually wild about jasmine, but the honey/saffron/apricot definitely sounds intriguing!
