Lady Gaga Debuts Fame Fragrance. World’s First Black Perfume? Not!

  • Pin it

Although I wasn’t expecting something traditional and certainly not something ethereally pink, Lady Gaga’s perfume, Fame, is a flowery scent, even sweet (with apricot notes).

However, they say it’s not your average perfume (duh!) and that it doesn’t have a linear progression (meaning that it’s not like the classic scents – with top / middle / base notes but more like a pyramid – perfume structure).

I wonder if they didn’t do that on purpose, so they would have to explain more on the matter and not just throw in a simple, average explanation to accompany the launch of Lady Gaga’s Fame perfume. Which comes in a black bottle, anyway. And in the black egg – shaped bottle with golden claws cap is a black perfume!

Black as in black liquid in the bottle and invisible when sprayed! Ain’t that Fame? (Oh, and did I say that it’s a flowery scent? It revolves around Belladonna. Also known as Deadly Nighshade. A plant known for giving hallucinations and delirium.)

UPDATE: Thanks to our reader & commentator, Sabrina Palermo, now we know that Fame is not the world’s first black perfume! Here’s its predecessor, Black Afgano:

Fame it NOT the first black perfume ever!! “Black Afgano” from Nasomatto has been there earlier, once again she is copying steeling other ideas.

And where did this Black Afgano come from? Did you do any research to see if it is indeed real?
You know Gaga’s haters will do anything … Even creating a mock perfume for the Internet ….. lol

The Black Afgano actually ISN’T black, it’s a brownish color , it’s also more of an oil based sent and less of an actual perfume.
So, There you go.
Can’t wait to get Fame!

sure JJ, so would Gaga fanatics ;)

yeah, they should totally call it “Brownish Afgano”! It’s a semantics (Fame) thing!

Relax, people. Lady gaga made the first ever black EAU DE PARFUM. Whereas black afgano by nasomatto is the first black PERFUME OIL/EXTRACT. Nice try, gaga haters. But with regards to the perfume, it’s all original.
