Lady Gaga Fame is the first ever black Eau de Parfum that sprays clear and becomes invisible once airborne. The black-to-clear fragrance is a fantastic innovation of patent pending fluid technology, exclusively launched with this fragrance. 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. The fragrance contains sensual notes of Belladonna, saffron, apricot nectar, jasmine sambac and tiger orchid.
Availability: Selected retailers and department stores.
What we say:
When this fragrance first launched I wasn’t quite sure whether or not I liked it. I thought that there was so much hype around the packaging, the ad campaign and the black liquid that there was actually very little written about the scent itself. Even after a I smelt it a couple of times, I was so distracted by the hype around it that I didn’t even remember what the fragrance smelt like. This is actually a pity, as now, almost two years later I am finally appreciating the scent for what it smells like rather than for the controversial adverts and the colour of the liquid.
Now don’t get me wrong – black perfume that becomes transparent once it it sprayed it incredibly cool. In fact, I would probably have bought the fragrance no matter what it smelt like, purely for the novelty of this function. But now that I am used to all the glitz and glamour surrounding it, I am happy to appreciate it just for its scent.
Overall, the fragrance is warm and sensual and, for me, perfect for wintery days. It stays on your skin all day long and doesn’t need re-spraying at all. I also love that it doesn’t quite smell the same all the time. Because this scent doesn’t follow the usual hierarchy of notes, all the different ingredients take turns to come to the fore, rather than moving from top notes to base notes. I can definitely smell the sweetness of honey, but it’s the dark Belladonna that really captures my attention.
If you’re looking for a fragrance that’s different and really captures people’s attention, this is the one to go for. Plus it doesn’t hurt that the bottle is absolutely stunning either!
