With Mother Monster leading the way on this intoxicating creation, you know that anything ordinary is out of the question. The first ever black Eau de Parfum, Lady Gaga Fame, captures the contradictory darkness and light that come with fame in the form of a fragrance.
I got my first scent of Fame a few months back, when a small group gathered in downtown NYC for a hush-hush "hatching" of Lady Gaga's perfume. Complete with lab coats and beakers, a steamy crew pretended to concoct a batch of the black brew, ultimately revealing the signature paw-topped bottle designed by Lady Gaga and famed Brit fashion photographer Nick Knight.
The fragrance itself is not only unique in its presentation, but in its actual fluid structure. Patent-pending technology drives the innovation that seems to magically transform the dark liquid into an invisible vapor once hitting the air. The fragrance notes follow suit, building from darkness to light. But unlike most scents, Fame pushes beyond the standard, disregarding the traditional top, middle, and base note makeup. Instead, it takes a more artful approach that seems to follow Gaga's own philosophy of free expression, allowing the ingredients to interact together harmoniously without the need for hierarchy.
As described on the sleek black and gold packaging, tears of Belladonna, crushed heart of Tiger Orchidea, a black veil of incense, pulverized apricot, and essences of Safforn and honey drops harmoniously combine to deliver Lady Gaga's ultimate masterpiece - Fame.
The scent is set to hit stores in late August. But if you want to be among the first to get your paws on the fragrance, pre-order Lady Gaga Fame today.
