Lady Gaga Fame Eau de Parfum
Not A Typical Celeb Fragrance
Lady Gaga certainly didn't disappoint with this latest fragrance FAME. To begin let's talk about the bottle itself: simple but effective. The bottle, although plain and simple is brought up to an eye catching standard thanks to the golden claw that sits atop the bottle.
Next comes the main selling point, and to confirm what has been advertised YES it is in fact a black EDP. Worry not though! I myself was concerned that the liquid would stain my skin, or even pale clothing that I was wearing but no such thing happens. However they've done it as soon as you spray the liquid (once hitting the air) turns clear just like a regular eau de parfum.
The smell of FAME... I don't know exactly what I expected from Gaga's first perfume; but deep down I was half expecting the typical run of the mill sickly sweet fragrance most celebs release but I can tell you that the smell we get with FAME wouldn't have been on the top of my list of expected smells Gaga would have chosen. It's a surprisingly sophisticated smell of crushed bella donna and orchid. Now don't get me wrong when the perfume is first sprayed it is quite a sweet smell, however as it settles down it becomes unexpectedly musky with a slight sweet edge to it. I love the smell. I swear at the minute I have not smelt anything else like this on the market. The only downside I have noted is that because it is Lady Gaga's first perfume and because it is so lovely I have been out in a night club or walked past a stranger in the street and smelt the unmistakable stench of Gaga at some point. So if you're expecting to make this your signature smell, be warned there will be plenty of others sharing the same love for the perfume as you. Despite how much I love this fragrance though there's something missing, something that doesn't quite give it the WOW factor you would come to expect from Lady Gaga. Perhaps this can be rectified with a follow up fragrance?
It should also be noted for any male fans of Gaga, you could get away with wearing this scent. As I mentioned earlier as the perfume settles it becomes quite musky. A friend of mine actually wears this and it doesn't seem out of place. Had I not had the perfume myself I would have thought it was a sweet male fragrance.
I would recommend pairing up the small 30ML/50ML bottle of FAME with the FAME shower gel (should the store you're in stock it.) Many find little extras like this useless, but no lie the shower gel smells exactly like the perfume. It really helps to save your perfume and keep the fragrance going. Also worthy of note is that the shower gel is also a black liquid. Pretty neat eh?
*If you liked FAME you will love TRUTH OR DARE by Madonna. This is another fragrance not like the regular celeb scent*
Smells fantastic, even tho the liquid is black it wont mark or stain skin/white clothing. Well worth buying for a Gaga fan or just some one wanting a very nice smelling parfum.
Brought as suprise for wife and she loved it
I received this as a gift from my sister this Christmas. It is not something i would have picked out for myself as i usually think 'celebrity fragrance's' are a bit... cheap. However, i used this on boxing day and was pleasantly surprised. It lasted all day and i kept getting whiffs of the fragrance all day (which i dont usually get with my other perfumes). It actually smells really nice aswell.
I will probably buy it again when i run out !
hype for this grabbed me
Still unsure its not overpowering smell but its not delicate either i suppose what im saying is try on your own skin first before purchasing
The Lady GaGa Perfume comes in a beautiful bottle and looks black but sprays clear !
Wonderful sensuous Perfume
BEST PERFUME EVER
MY AUNT BOUGHT ME THIS FOR MY BIRTHDAY AND I HAVE TO SAY, IT WAS THE BEST PRESENT OF THEM ALL !!! I LOVE THE SMELL SOOO MUCH, AND ITS REALLY UNIQUE WITH THE PERFUME BEING BLACK INSIDE THE BOTTLE... WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND BUYING THIS !!!!!
Thought it would be better
Too sweet smelling.
Would not buy it again as it gave me a headache.
