Lady Gaga Fame Perfume

lady gaga fame fragrance review perfume photo price notes scent
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.
Blood, Sweat and Semen… What?

I have to admit when I first sniffed Lady Gaga's first foray into the world of Celebrity perfumes. It seemed so… Tame? I expected a whole lot more from someone who prides themselves on being different from the crowd. The unique selling point would probably be it's black fluid that goes completely transparent once airborne. The perfume has a "trampoline structure", with no top, middle or bottom notes They refer to it as "push-pull", and it will smell different on different people. I expected it to be edgy, I expected to smell bit expensive hooker and it promised "blood and semen" (not that I'd like to smell like either). It just comes off really soft and floral with notes of saffron, apricot, belladonna, tiger orchid,jasmine, honey and incense. It falls into the fruity/floral or even floriental perfume categories, which was nothing like I imagined. I just feel it really falls flat on my expectations. It's not horrible by any sense of the imagination, its just not special or that unique smelling for something that is built around a fairly new and exciting concept!

Overall I think maybe I just expected something more from her. It comes off a  generic celebrity perfume smelling, albeit not offensive to the nostrils but it's not unique. I do like the scent but like alot of these celebrity perfumes, It's one for the fans rather than perfume lovers! The black fluid is fun, but once it's out the bottle it's really not that special! I do like the packaging and adore how it looks on my dresser though! In all honesty Fame just feels like it lacks in personality and falls flat on what I'd expect from someone like Gaga.

    1. I think its great. The smell is gorgeous and not too over powering or cheap. I think the black fluid is quirky enough to be a gaga product. Had nothing but compliments whilst wearing it.

  3. I'm heard how completely underwhelming this letdown of a perfume is... good thing I don't care for gaga so I wasn't looking forward to anything in the first place haha :)

  4. I have heard mixed reviews on it, the bottle is wonderfully appealing but I just guess I'll have to test it before hand :)

  9. I agree - I really expected something intriguing but it's pretty standard. I do like it though and will use it, it's just not Gaga!

  13. I would be so scared to spry it on my clothes, just in the fear it would come out black. Sounds very disappointing! :( x

  14. I tried it out on Saturday...I really like it (surprisingly). BUT it's like I've smelled it before - it's nothing new IMO. For me it smells like Lacoste.
    But it's cheap and I like it a lot - so I might buy it. Or Prada Candy..hmm...but it's so expensive. -.-

  17. I thought it was okay when I sniffed it in Boots, but like you say, nothing special - it does linger up the old nostrils though, I'll give it that! x

  18. It's such a safe fragrance for someone like GaGa, nothing at all what I was expecting. It really reminds me of another perfume but I can't think of the name. It's driving me mad!

  23. Agreed. It's such a shame that it's not that heavy. I'd expected it be more wooden or something else. But al in all, it's in an okay perfume and the bottle does look good. I just hate the ads in the magazines.

  24. I sprayed it on me in Boots and loved the smell, I guess perfumes do smell different on people's skin.
