Lady Gaga is arguably this generation’s queen of controversy. The pop star can’t even walk the red carpet without purposely causing a stir, so when it was announced that she would be releasing a fragrance, it was expected to be kooky. And boy, is it. The scent is supposedly called “Fame,” which seems like an awfully demure title, considering its ingredient list...
Gaga released a sneak peek of the bottle today, which supposedly contains a perfume that has hints of semen, blood and “expensive hooker.” And, unlike regular fragrances, the liquid is black and changes color when applied to skin. Which actually sounds really awesome.
Despite the unusual blend of notes, Gaga says that the scent isn’t gross:
It was taken out of my own blood sample, so it’s a sense of having me on your skin. I wanted to extract sort of the feeling and sense of blood and semen from molecular structures, so that’s where [the rumors] came from. That is in the perfume, but it doesn’t smell like that. Actually, the perfume smells like an expensive hooker.
So, it’s supposed to smell like blood and semen, but not really. Nonetheless, it’s doubtful that Gaga would release a foul-smelling product, especially with all the buzz that surrounds this one. Even though I don’t usually wear perfume, I’ll definitely try this one on, if only for the joy of seeing it change color. [via Fashionista]
