Fame by Lady Gaga is composed in an unusual way; the fragrance doesn’t respect the pyramidal structure of the composition, but uses so-called “push-pull technology” by which the ingredients are mixed to highlight different aspects of each fragrant note at the same time, without any hierarchy.
The fragrance is built on three main accords: dark accord, sensual accord and light accord. The dark accord includes poisonous flower Belladonna and incense, which evolve into the sensual and opulent wave of honey drops, saffron and apricot. A floral veil of Sambac jasmine and tiger orchid embody light and beauty.
The liquid of the perfume is also innovative—it is colored in black but becomes invisible when it touches the skin. Just like the fame itself: “It’s black like the soul of fame, but invisible once airborn.”
Main accords from the fragrance include floral, honey, sweet, fruity, powdery, balmy. In my opinion, this is one of the coolest fragrances out in the market at the moment because its BLACK juice. The first time I sprayed it on and saw it sprayed BLACK, I freaked out because I thought it would stain my clothes but it didn’t. The idea to do this and completely change our expectations of perfumes to come is so Gaga, no surprise there. The perfume smells AMAZING (not a huge fan of celebrity perfumes usually) and smells quite a bit like lolita lempicka…and maybe even better. The cap is gorgeous with its golden claws…reminds me a bit of vintage Yves Saint Laurent. Love love love. This perfume is for sure a 10/10.
