Ooohboy. I guess we can breathe a sigh of relief. It appears that Lady Gaga’s new fragrance called (what else?) FAME will not have the odor combination of semen and blood, as had been rumored for the past several months.

So if we know what the fragrance doesn’t smell like, what does it smell like?
“Tears of belladonna, crushed heart of tiger orchidea with a black veil of incense, pulverised apricot and the combinative essences of saffron and honey drops.”
FAME also comes with the kind of philosophy one would expect from Lady Gaga:
“First of its kind, this perfume is an innovation in fluid technology. It’s black like the soul of fame but invisible once airborne.”
I am fairly certain I won’t enjoy this scent, as I have made it crystal clear that I only care for light, fresh and citrus-y fragrances. I also have difficulty believing a black liquid won’t stain clothing or skin, but maybe someone will appreciate that factor.
It all just seems odd, and I’m getting a slight headache at the headiness of what this perfume will smell like. I’m imagining the inside of a Hot Topic store on a hot, humid afternoon.
