Lady Gaga Fame fragrance details announced.

15th June, 2012

Lady Gaga has announced that her first fragrance, Lady Gaga Fame, will be launched in September 2012. Gaga's first fragrance, released through her own Haus Laboratories in association with Coty, boasts the claim "The First Ever Black Eau de Parfum". (In case you're wondering, Black Afgano is Extrait de Parfum...)

Despite the black juice, it sprays clear and becomes invisible once airborne thanks to some patent pending fluid technology, exclusively launched with the fragrance. The bottle was designed in collaboration with Nick Knight, and the ad campaign was directed and photographed by Steven Klein.

According to the press release:[INDENT=2]

This fragrance ... has a unique structure called the "push-pull technology," where the ingredients interact together to highlight different olfactive aspects of each note at the same time, without any hierarchy. All of the notes were crafted to work together harmoniously thanks to the complimentary properties of each ingredient, which allow for a true metamorphosis of the scent when worn on skin.

[INDENT=2]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 Lady Gaga Fame its signature as a scent.

"Enjoy the first ever fragrance from Haus Laboratories. Fame, a beautiful prospect with a dark heart. X GAGA," said Lady Gaga.

The fragrance will be available at retailers worldwide in September 2012.

      I must admit I was not expecting a mere "fruity-floral" from the GaGa. But I do think it does sound quite interesting nevertheless. (Let's hope it doesn't disappoint !) What doesn't surprise me at all, and more in-line with what I was expecting, is her choosing of a poisonous flower to be her star attraction. I'm excited and intrigued about the Belladonna !

      As for the 'black juice' - that's just genius ! ~ And the name 'Fame' is pretty clever too, seeing as it's what today's youth most hunger for.

      As for the bottle, it gets a thumbs-up from me. With strong shades of Mugler, (which again is not exactly surprising). It could have easily fit in with Muglers collection.

      All in all I think she's gonna make an absolute killing, regardless of the beauty or quality of the 'juice'. I think most will buy and wear it regardless of what it smells like.

      According to the advert:

      'The First Ever Black Eau de Parfum'.

      I bet Guerlain are kicking themselves for the missed opportunity ! hehehe.

      Not surprised. Mugler is one of Lady Gaga's favorite fashion houses.
