Lady Gaga Fame Eau de Parfum
Advantages: unusual design, perfect scent for night or day time
Disadvantages: might be a little pricey to some
Gaga created this scent with the help from artists from her own 'Haus Laboratories' and 'Coty' (who make perfumes with Beyonce, Beckham and Kylie and many more).
The hugely popular fragrance sold over six million bottles in one single week which makes it the second fastest selling perfume after coco Chanel. The promise of a mysterious fragrance led many of us to become either skeptical or delightfully curious with the rumored ingredients, whilst there are none of the so called "blood and semen" ingredients that caused a stir before it's prior release, the scent is somewhat floral as well as fruity, and the incense really stands out. There is also essence of muskiness which in theory makes it unisex since according to Gaga herself her 'perfume was designed for women, but a lot of my gay friends wear it'.
The packaging/box describes the notes as Belladonna, Incense, Apricot, Honey Drops, Tiger Orchidea, and Jasmin Sambac.
The bottle cap design is an asymmetrical gold claw which is meant to resemble a paw, many of you may be familiar with the term "Paws up" - which is Lady Gaga's way of saying stand up and be proud of who you are so the paw not only a clever design, but is also a symbol for her fans.
It's a black liquid that claims to be the first of its kind that chemically transforms to be clear after it is sprayed.
Whilst others claim that this perfume was over hyped, I myself understand this apparent hype because it smells absolutely gorgeous. Perhaps it's down to personal preference, so don't knock it until you've tried it yourself. However for me personally this is my number one perfume and signature scent out of my small collection.
The fragrance is available in three different sizes; 30ml, 50ml and 100ml all of which start at approximately £22 to £45 depending on where you purchase them from. There are also a number of gift set combinations available which in theory are better value for money since you get a little something extra along with your fragrance. The sets include either black soap, black body lotion or black shower gel (of course all of which turn clear, don't worry). There have also been limited edition gift sets available in only certain countries and stores (particularly online rather than in store) where you can purchase the limited edition Fame false nails that are designed accordingly to match the perfume's overall design and replicate gaga's signature stiletto nails.
All the fragrances can be found anywhere that sell hair, health and beauty products and of course specialist fragrance stores. You can also buy them online, quite often at cheaper prices if you're lucky.
Overall I would definitely recommend this perfume, though I would suggest trying the perfume out at a store that allows you to test them (usually larger stores that have more fragrances on display).
Summary: A delightfully modern yet classic design, elegant and sweet. Highly recommended.
