Fragrant Friday - Lady Gaga Fame

Is Lady Gaga all kinds of crazy-pants? You betcha! Crazy like a fox? Could be - it's hard to tell these days with celebrities what is actual crazy and what is just marketing crazy. But like every other self-respecting fame-whore The Ga has got herself a fragrance, which is also kind of nuts but smells surprisingly good!

Lady Gaga Fame - 30ml EDP - $39, 50ml EDP - $59, 100ml EDP - $89 - with a very different formulation then what we are used to seeing with fragrances. Rather then having top, heart and base notes, it uses a "push-pull technology" that allows the ingredients to randomly rise and fall when worn on the skin.

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 & Jasmine Sambac embodies timeless beauty. The accords work together to create a fragrance of floral and fruity elements, with the star ingredient inspired by Belladonna leveling out the whole fragrance and giving it its signature as a scent.

What I think is really interesting is the juice - the first ever black EDP! Meant to represent the dark side of fame - it's black in the bottle but sprays on clear - and surprisingly, I really like the scent - it smells fruity and warm on me! 

Available at Shoppers Drug Mart, Pharmaprix, Sephora, The Bay and Sears.

And you just won't understand the ad unless you watch the whole film...

  1. I just smelled this in the department store, and I really was surprised how good it was. My fiance even said he liked it, which was a good sign!
