Lady Gaga’s perfume: first peek

Yesterday Lady Gaga tweeted: “Looks like photos of my perfume are being leaked. Oh you fashion editors I could just crinkle my hands at you!” Apparently someone got a little bit too excited and started talking about/showing/generally parading the bottle around to anyone who’d listen, must to the distaste of Gaga. Like any good PR woman, Lady G decided to undertake the big reveal herself before the official launch later this year, tweeting the first glimpse of her much anticipated fragrance. Called simply ‘Fame’ and being housed in quite a non-controversial bottle, it left me a little underwhelmed at first. Does anyone else think it looks a little like one of the Avon perfumes your Nan used to have?

However, Gaga channels a little of her quirky self into some unusual product attributes; the bottle is filled with black fluid, which apparently changes color once the wearer puts it on their skin. It’s also been much discussed that the fragrance would contain blood and semen – Gaga explained: “I wanted to extract sort of the feeling and the sense of blood and semen from a molecular structure, so that’s where that came from. You just get the after feeling of sex from the semen, and the blood is sort of primal, and it was taken out of my own blood sample, so it’s a sense of having me on your skin.” Erm, ok then.  As for the fragrance, the description goes a little like this… “Tears of belladonna, crushed heart of tiger orchidea, with a black veil of incense, pulverized apricot and the combinative essences of saffron and honey drops.” Can’t decide if it sounds like a witch’s spell or a cake mixture.

Will you be counting down the days for the launch?

    Frankly I think it sounds gross. Why oh why Gaga felt the need to publicise wanting blood and semen and a 'expensive hooker' smell is beyond me. I do love Gaga's eccentricity and theatre, but I think considering the sort of young girls who will get excited about this the story behind it is a tad worrying. I do agree, the bottle (and box) look very Avon. As if they got a work experience designer to create it. I was expecting something much grander!
