 Another wonderful gift I received this Christmas, is Lady Gaga's new fragrance; Fame. I was with my Mam when this was released in Boots, as half naked men gave out samples. Oo-er. As soon as I had a whiff of the new fragrance, I was totally sold! I'll not bore you with all the notes of the fragrance, as I don't understand them myself. I will however, try and describe the scent!
I would say this is quite floral, with a hint of sweetness. I know this will probably sound quite similar to everything else you own, but there is also a hint of dark, huskiness. I don't know what it is, its quite mysterious! You really do need to give it a smell. I'm not usually one for celebrity fragrances, although this is definitely an exception. I think Ms Gaga has done a fabulous job of capturing the soul of fame in a bottle. 

Aside from the fact that is smells divine, lets take a look at the perfume itself. The actually liquid of the perfume is black. This is the first fragrance to have launched a perfume with some resemblance to colour. This is to represent the soul of fame, that becomes transparent once airborne. I am sure many people must have initially thought this would be a bad selling point, as this could easily stain your brand new white dress. Luckily, this does indeed become transparent before it reaches your skin.

In the giftset I received, includes a 50ml bottle of the perfume. Beautifully packaged in a long round bottle (I'm sure there is a technical, mathematical shaped name for this), with three gold claws, encasing the glass bottle, which is the lid. This will look great on any dressing table, or whatever you use. The comparison in colours makes it so eye catching. Also included, is a 200ml bottle of Shower Gel, naturally holding the same scent as the perfume. I was surprised to see that it was a black gel, but this does work really well with the whole dark, fame theme. I'm quite excited to try the shower gel. I think I will really only use this on special occasions/nights out, to strengthen the scent of the perfume.
The products are encased in a really sturdy cardboard box, with a pull out draw, to reveal your products, sitting tightly in a red, velvet bed. As much as I would like to have the perfume out on show, I can't help but want to keep it safe and secure in its original home.
I'm really happy with this fragrance, I was from the moment I first had the sample! This is such a perfect perfume to lightly spray on during the day, or apply heavier and layered over the shower gel for night out.

You can pick this up at Boots online here (link) or in store.
