You wouldn’t know what to expect when the notoriously outrageous Lady Gaga decides to come up with a fragrance, now would you?

If the provocative fashion of the singer was any indication- remember her infamous meat-dress?? – it’s quite understandable that there would be some hesitation regarding her new fragrance FAME.

But don’t be so quick to judge a book by its cover.


Lady Gaga FAME does not smell anything like the crazy PR made it out to be during the launch. Instead, it’s a very feminine, elegant, sensual scent. Nothing overly complicated, sleek and sexy; very much like the design, which comes in a simple black bottle, that fits well in the hand and a gold crown top. 

The liquid is black but turns invisible once sprayed on.

The packaging states the notes to be “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.”

Honey and apricot are the predominant notes, but there’s a mellow jasmine scent that lingers as FAME lasts about 6 hours on the skin; far longer than some more expensive perfumes out there. 

Overall, it’s quite a sexy fragrance without being too overpowering or heavy, definitely more suitable for nighttime and great for those special occasions. Available for purchase at Glamourbox’s Online Boutique.
