Win! Lady Gaga Fame Fragrance
Mimi ON Oct 17, 2012 AT 10:33 am
Whilst Lady Gaga may have originally described her first scent, Fame, in rather colourful terms, suggesting that it would smell “like an expensive hooker,” and that “sweat, blood and semen” was to be used in the perfume formula! We can assure you that it smells of none of the above. Thankfully.
Instead, the scent is built around three main accords: Dark – which is inspired by Belladonna, the deadly nightshade possessed by haunted beauties since the 18th century. Sensual – an opulent fusion of dripping honey, saffron and apricot nectar. And Light – which consists of a rich floral layer of crushed Tiger Orchid and Jasmine Sambac. The fragrance will be offer a comination of floral and fruity elements.
Lady Gaga’s Fame is also the very first black coloured perfume. Once sprayed, the ‘black fluid’ transforms into a clear liquid – and as expected, is no ordinary eau de parfum. Instead of the olfactory standard where top, middle and base notes work in a pyramid structure to create a typical scent, Fame works by way of a unique “push-pull technology”, with all of the ingredients working together to in harmony. Allowing a “true metamorphosis when worn on skin”.
Housed within a decadent clear bottle (to showcase the black fluid) and topped with a gold art-deco claw cap, the packaging comes courtesy of a design collaboration with Nick Knight.
