Lady GaGa Perfume | FAME

I love Lady GaGa, I realise she's not to everyone's taste but honestly, what a woman. And her talents don't cease at creating fantastic records, no no. She's been working on a brand new fragrance over the past two years and this is the result:

I'm not usually on the whole hype for celebrity frangrances; I mean, they're popular for something else, not making us smell good right? Well, if you're thinking that with this one, DON'T. It's frickin' amazing.

Firstly the packaging = in LOVE. It's not over the top and extravagant like you'd expect from someone as extrovert as GaGa, but it's definitely different. No your eyes aren't deceiving you, that's black fluid right there. It's the first in the market and may be slightly daunting for some, but fear not. The fluid sprays transparent so there's no staining or looking like you've spilled some black tar down your neck. I absolutely love the gold claw clasp, and it pops off ever so easily.

Secondly the scent. Dear GOD ladies, this is literally sexy times in a bottle. I am head over heels in love and have never sprayed a scent on my arm before and wanted to constantly sniff myself for hours on end haha. It's a fruity, flowery scent (again, something I wasn't expecting from her). And instead of following the usual perfume rules, of exploiting top, middle and base notes the scent is focused on Dark, Sensual and Light accords - which basically means combining single scents together. 
The scents included on the description are: "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".
I think the scent is probably targeted to the younger woman. It's fresh and fruity but I'd also say it has quite a musky hint to it, which is something I always look for in a perfume. The staying power is ridiculous, it stays on my skin for years (not literally, I do wash, but y'know what I'm saying). And it smells so expensive and luxurious.

Thirdly the price. In my eyes, it's so affordable. This little bottle of 30ml cost me just over £20 from The Perfume Shop and I think the most expensive bottle (100ml) retails at just over £50. I opted for the smaller bottle, just in case I ended up hating it - which I don't, but I'll definitely be buying the bigger bottle when I run out. BEST SMELL EVER.

What do you think ladies? Have you tried this yet?


Lauren Jay said...

I had a sniff of this in Superdrug recently and though it had the exact same smell as Armani Code, obviously it's a heck of a lot cheaper so I guess it's not a bad thing!xx

milkymoles said...

Sounds fab! great review

Lauren said...

Oooh I wanna smell it!! I bloody love Gaga! What a woman!
Can't wait to try it :)


WonderfulYou said...

Ooh really Lauren? I hate Armani Code for women haha, how funny! We have different noses :( but yes, definitely an affordable one :) xx

WonderfulYou said...

Thanks Rose, xx

WonderfulYou said...

Yes Lauren!! It's bloomin' amazing. xx

UniLass said...

usually don't go for celebrity fragrances but the price and reviews of this are enticing me in! Will be trying soon xx

Sara said...

I usually dont like Celebrity perfumes either (except Katy Perry Purr) but I smelt this one the other day and its awesome:)
Sara xx

WonderfulYou said...

Me either lovey, I don't own any others, but this one is in another league!xx

WonderfulYou said...

Ditto! I haven't smelt Katy Perry's one, but she's a babe, bet it smells good!x

Miss Sophie Olivia said...

I've tried a sample and love it! I don't usually like celebrity perfumes, but this is lovely.

Stephanie Tang said...

I just bought this not five hours ago and I'm in love with it too! I think that even though the bottle itself isn't extravagant the idea of having a dark fluid is very much up Gaga's alley :) Thanks for sharing your thoughts!


Sophierosehearts said...

I had a whiff of my friends bottle of this and i am hooked. definitely on my christmas list!

Katie Frank said...

I'm not massive fan of lady gaga, but I bet this perfum is going to smell awesome!

Charlotte said...

haven't tried it, will be after reading this though!

AVY said...

Haven't tried, but it looks good.



danielle p. said...

i just bought this for my sister for her birthday, and was pleasantly surprised at how good it smells. when gaga first mentioned she was doing a fragrance, i feel like i remember her saying she wanted it to smell like her blood. or something equally as ridiculous. but i really dig the scent!

Emma B said...

ooooh sounds yummy! i'm definitely going to have to have a sniff in duty free on my way home to england! at this rate you might need another bottle in a months time! let me know :D <3

Islay said...

ahh I NEED to try this out! Next time I'm in town I want to give it a go!


taylahjoyce said...

Sounds like it smells amazing. I'm always a fan of fruity scents in the summer and more musk scents in fall. Sounds almost like it's perfect for all year round, maybe for a night out.

Gia @ Lovely Serendipity said...

I'm going to the mall tomorrow and I'll make sure to check that one out! Thanks for the very informative review! :)

WonderfulYou said...

It's gorgeous isn't it Sophie?xx

WonderfulYou said...

Definitely Stephanie!xx

WonderfulYou said...

Ooh, I hope you get it Sophie :) :) xx

WonderfulYou said...

I don't think you could be disappointed Katie :) xx

WonderfulYou said...

It's sooo shexy Charlotte!x

WonderfulYou said...

:) xx

WonderfulYou said...

It's lovely isn't it? Yeah, I read that too, but I think what actually happened was she took samples of her blood to have some of the chemicals in it or something!xx

WonderfulYou said...

Awh Em :) I love you xx

WonderfulYou said...

It's soooo tasty Islay :D xx

WonderfulYou said...

Hit the nail on the head :) xx

WonderfulYou said...

Awh, glad you liked it Gia!xx

Vanessa said...

I must admit I haven't raced over to smell this perfume yet. There were top less guys promoting this perfume in my local boots which I thought was funny and very GaGa. Think I shall have a little sniff next time, it sounds lovely :)x

Miss Betty Boop said...

It really interests me how it smells... since Ga Ga is so different :D


becky smith said...

At the moment i feel like im the only person in the blogging world that doesn't love this perfume haha. Im really sad that i don't really like it as it would look so pretty in my collection, i love the simple yet really eye catching bottle and the fact the fluid is black x

Nic Nac Noo said...

I think it's a bit too sweet but adore the packaging :) Tried it in my glossybox :)

Lovely blog! Would love if you could check mine out and maybe follow each other  http://champagnelambinibudget.blogspot.co.uk
