Little monsters everywhere will soon get a whiff of Lady Gaga as the details of her first fragrance, Fame, leak as the late summer/September release grows near. Gaga tweeted out images of the fragrance which was created with Coty (who is the mega-fragrance-force behind celeb releases from Jennifer Lopez and Madonna) that revealed the look and essence of the scent. According to the back of the perfume's packaging, the main scent story includes: "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" -- which sounds like it smells as Gawker is succinctly putting it: "like a dramatic 17-year-old."
Additionally, the fragrance, which appears to be pitch black in the bottle, does a magic trick of its own using "fluid technology .... It's black like the soul of fame but invisible once airborne."
The bottle itself is surrounded by some dangerous looking spikes and has an overall hand grenade feel to it, but in retrospect, these bells and whistles are a whole lot more tame than the gasp-factor this perfume was originally supposed to make when it was announced Gaga wanted the fragrance to smell like ... um, other things.
The original controversial buzz surrounding the fragrance started in early 2011 when Gaga took to the radio airwaves in Australia stating her first scent would smell: "like an expensive hooker ... [Blood and semen] is in the perfume but it doesn't smell like it." Gaga continued on to explain that the blood sample used for the creation was her own. No word on the other donor.
