Lady Gaga Fame Eau de Parfum
Advantages: lovely light, fresh scent, nice bottle, long-lasting, don't need to use much at a time
I have to admit I had no interest in Lady Gaga's perfume whatsoever. The fact that it's advertised as 'the world's first black eau de partum' just made me think 'oh god, she can't do anything without trying too hard to be different', I mean seriously, what's the point? But I received a bottle as a gift so of course I had to try it out for myself. It's very reasonably priced as far as fragrances go, the 50ml bottle I have costing £32.50 in Boots.
I do quite like the design of the bottle, though it's not something I'd be drawn to in a shop. It's made of clear glass so you can see the black liquid inside, and is an almost egg-shaped bottle with a gold plastc lid. The lid, as you should be able to see from the picture, has 4 'prongs' coming down the side of the bottle that is meant to resemble a claw and does look quite interesting.
The perfume combines a dark accord of Belladonna and incense, a sensual accord of honey drops, saffron and apricot, and a light accord of Sambac jasmine and tiger orchid. The makers claim that the fragrance is not composed in the traditional 'pyramidal' structure, but instead uses a 'push-pull technology', which highlights different aspects of each note at the same time, without any hierarchy.
When I first spray the perfume I get a really light fruity scent where the apricots are definitely the most evident. It's not long until it settles to a deeper fragrance which combines more of the floral notes with vthe initial fruity scent but still remains quite fresh. I would agree that after the fragrance has settled there is no particular note that stands out, they all work in harmony to make an overall lovely fragrance. It is not an overpowering scent and remains quite fresh and light so even if you overdo it a bit it's not going to choke people.
Because of it's light nature I personally feel this is best as a daytime fragrance as although it's quite unique I don't think it would really stand out amongst the usual heavier night-time fragrances. It does last well though, and I find if I apply just a couple of sprays in the morning before leaving the house I can still smell it at the end of a 9 hour shift at work. I have had a few compliments on this whilst wearing but not as many as with some of my other perfumes.
Overall I do really like this perfume, it has a lovely fresh, light scent which would suit any woman, and it's great value for money. I'd definitely recommend you give it a try.
