Recently, when smelling an array of fragrances and Eau De Parfums at Herberger's, I had the opportunity to smell one of the newest fragrances by the legendary pop princess herself, Lady Gaga. It is called FAME. What did I think?
If you are in search of the perfect balance of a fruity yet sheer floral fragrance, I truly recommend FAME by Lady Gaga, as it provides with you just that.
The overall bottle is very "Gaga" as it provides you with packaging that represents her as an artist. The formula inside is the only "black" fluid perfume in the market, making it insanely original.
The combination of the individual scents in this fragrance are so audacious that you would just think they wouldn't work, however; all of the notes come together to create a very original fragrance that smells amazing on everyone I have smelled it on, including myself.
The individual notes include: apricots, incense, honey drops, belladonna, tiger orchidea, and jasmin sambac. When I first had the opportunity to smell FAME, I did notice an array of notes and scents that stood out. The honey stood out the most, followed by the apricots. After I noticed these particular notes, I started to pick up on the incense, the jasmin, the belladonna, the orchid, and then finally saffron.
I noticed that when you spray this fragrance on clothes, it leaves a very faded dark mark. The actual formula is not clear, so if you intend to spray your gorgeous white wedding dress with this fragrance, you may want to think twice before doing so. Instead, apply it to your wrists, neck, or anywhere on the skin you want to smell like FAME.
Although it is relatively long-lasting, it doesn't have a lot of staying power compared to most that I have used. It is also moderately light too, so if you are expecting drama or anything exotic from the legendary, avante garde "Mother Monster" you are just going to be let down.
RATING - 90%
Overall, I truly found that FAME reminded me of Poison by Dior, but not as strong. Despite being indistinctive and somewhat forgettable, I have to admit though, I was very impressed with this perfume because of the actual combinations of notes that work together to create an astonishing acquired fragrance that isn't overpowering. FAME is empowering, yes, but not overpowering. "Balmy" just may be the best way to describe this fragrance. I also think it is mysterious, and most importantly, it is fabulous.
