The cap looks like a Martial arts weapon.

Tears? of belladonna..... so maybe a heady sweet Amaryllis Belladonna Lily topnote?
Crushed orchids
Pulverized apricot? does that mean we're getting the pits?

Sounds pretty violent LOL.... I recall she wanted blood and semen (already done)

Looks interesting but I wonder how it smells. I hope it's very odd and different.

I think Alexander McQueen is more the style though. She seems to love his creations.

It'll probably be as vapid and unfufilling as her music. At least I can look at the bottle, for a long period of time, without wanting to punch someone...

A friend sent me that exact picture last night.

Whilst I don't normally buy in to celebrity endorsed scents (with the exception of Sean John Unforgivable), the notes in this are most definitely appealing, and I'll definitely sample it.

Is there any news on a release date?

Thank God someone who shares my opinion - can't stand the slowly dying Gaga trend

Let's try to be optimistic, kids. Gaga is not your average celeb.... the woman wore RAW MEAT in PUBLIC. If nothing else, it will be different.

If someone buys it, would you be willing to share some small decants?

As cutting edge as Lady Gaga might be as a music persona, the perfume venture must sell and be successful.

Investors won't throw money after nothing.

Maybe a revival of Alexander McQueen's armpit-laden Kingdom?

Kingdom Rocks! I'd be stoked if this Lady Gaga fragrance smells like that. :p

I never understood why Kingdom wasn't marketed to men as well as women. It is very unisex. The cumin can be a little rough to some though.

The bottle looks like one of the eggs from Alien.

Interested to smell this; would have been quite a challenge to the perfumer to work with this brief :)

There's nothing radical about this woman - most her her style is largely a Madonna rip-off but with a quirky slant. A case of style over substance and this fragrance will be no different.

It's about making money and not a statement. How daring is that?

It's electro dance pop music, not a genre steeped in meaning. And that's almost all the genre is, is style; the medium is the message. But how about "Born This Way" for example. What's unsubstantial about saying that it's ok to be who you are or you you want to be? And all music is cyclical. Everyone borrows from everyone else, thats just the way it is. You can probably go back as far as music goes and find examples of people borrowing or expanding on ideas and variations on themes and so forth.

Concerning her frag, are you so sure you can't be surprised?

Well, thank you for your profound overview on the history of music and allowing me to voice my opinion… NOT!

I’m well aware of this genre, thank you very much, and if you possessed a smattering of musical knowledge from the last 50 years (commercial, alternative/underground, specialist, music from non-English speaking countries and everything else in-between) you’d appreciate where I’m coming from.

As for ‘Born This Way’, it’s just more pop fodder that will be long forgotten within the next ten years. Lady gaga knows this, hence why she’s raking in as much as she possibly can. She an opportunistic media and attention-seeking wh**e (just like Madonna but at least she released some decent pop music that still resonates 20 years later). If you think that her ultimate goal is anything other than money and fame, you’re deluding yourself (and for a start, if this wasn’t the case, she wouldn’t be releasing a celebrity scent).

Concerning her fragrance, are you prepared to put your money where your mouth is? Say… $50?

So, you appreciate her work – more power to you. But I don't and am not ashamed of making this publicly known.

Easy tiger. Nobodys robbing you of an opinion, you actually voiced your opinion first. Why so sarcastic and dismissive? You're acting like what I said isn't true about music being cyclical and self referential. I actually have a deep and thorough library of music from all over covering most genres. I do appreciate your perspective and respect your opinion. Don't get it twisted, I'm just making conversation.

Concerning her frag, I'm just saying it's not impossible that it might be worth the 3 seconds it would take to smell while your smelling other things, after all it's a frag forum. Do I want to bet? No. You're predisposed to not liking it, lolz, how would I win that bet? And I have no doubts that her foray into frags is nothing more than some suit's idea on how to make more money but that doesn't mean I don't wanna smell it.

No need to read it over, I wrote it, I know what it says. Everything I said is true up to and including valuing your opinion and appreciating your perspective. Nothing I said twisted anybody's words, I presented a counter point which is an integral part of a conversation. But it seems you don't want a conversation. It seems you want an arguement, which I don't think I'll take part in as I've already said everything I felt like saying about the subject and now I just don't care enough to waste another minute on this.

I got my hands on a bottle of this and plan to post my first ever YouTube video review about it on Thursday. The scent is REALLY good.. especially considering its a mainstream release. Strong floral thats sweet but not sickeningly so. Lots of depth and while its kinda linear - each time I wear it, its a little different. First time, I wore it - I got a Nag Champa in the heart.. next time, I got apricot and pear. Longevity is really good - 1 hour of strong projection, 3 hours at mild projection, skin scent at 5 hours.. which lasts more than 12 hours.

I got a bottle of this given to me a few months ago and I must say: It is fascinating. I actually like the scent--it is not at all "usual" in the celebrity vein of perfumery--it may surprise all of you: "The Lady" herself was very much involved in every aspect of its creation and it's quite obvious when you smell it--hold the bottle: She is *very* proud of it--the juice is BLACK, like ink--yet--like magic--it sprays clear: Even on white cotton. It's a very heady scent--no watermelon fruit punch here. You all might want to take this one seriously. I have to admit: I am not easily swain by any perfume, regardless of its provenance, but.....I was impressed.

PS: I caused a minor commotion on Frag as I was the first to comment on this fragrance: In one day's time my PM box was FLOODED with inquiries--Let it be known: I am not a fan of her music. I am a fan of HER. I feel she has done a tremendous amount of good for countless young people who are vulnerable and her charity endevours are exemplary. I made a monetary donation and as part of the package there came VIP tickets to her concert, with a private meeting. The concert......was, to say the least, a trip for me. I have never seen anything like it. The music: Not my cup of tea. Her performance, though,--unforgettable. I know you all love to hate her for whatever reason. So be it. I will point out that I am of the age that allows me to remember being on a dance floor in London and hearing "Holiday." I remember everyone saying--"who is that singer?" So: I witnessed Madonna's whole career unfold. I believe she and I are the same age--she may be slightly older--Personally, I don't believe Lady Gaga has "ripped off Madonna" at all. Madonna will have paved the way for her, in the same way Kate Bush paved the way for Florence Welch and others--Madonna, though, never made the kinds of charitable gestures LG has made: LG has made this an integral part of her work, and in so doing has helped so many young people in need in a way that is very real. For this, and for her shear talent--again--I am no fan of her music--but I recognize originality: I admire her. Let's just say: LG is as, if not more, original, than Madonna, in her time, was. She deserves a bit of respect. Nobody is asking anyone to love her music, or the perfume. (There will be enough people for that) Really, I have only this to add to the discussion above: The perfume is *not* "just any" old thing they threw in a bottle--and many of you readers know I am *very difficult* when it comes to judgements such as that. Would everyone not simply find it in there heart to agree that, if for nothing else, Lady Gaga might indeed be a candidate for respect, if not for her music, then for her fierce creativity? If not for this, perhaps then for her sense of charity? Surely you might spare a tiny bit of love for that?

I grew up loving Madonna and used to dress up and perform her music sub-professionally for a passing resemblance to her in her younger days. But Madonna is a detestable person as far as I can tell. Her public image is that of the worst narcissism, fakery, theft from people of color, of non-straight sexuality, of other religions and cultures. That borrowing is the very soul and stuff of post-modernism, but the way Madonna did it always seemed to say "hey I made this up all on my own!" Lady Gaga seems to show her work, pay homage to her sources, and to use her fame for plenty of good, no matter how much of a megalomaniac exhibitionist she might be. I am the same age as Lady Gaga and can't imagine how driven and hard-working she must be to accomplish what she has in her years, even if it's a very extreme and extroverted picture of celebrity.

I don't care about her music, but for pop it's nice enough. For one thing, she has enormous influence, and so if this scent is actually good and popular, maybe other celebrity scents will get better to catch up, bolstering perfumery in general. Just hoping...

the juice is BLACK, like ink--yet--like magic--it sprays clear: Even on white cotton. It's a very heady scent--no watermelon fruit punch here. You all might want to take this one seriously. I have to admit: I am not easily swain by any perfume, regardless of its provenance, but.....I was impressed.

I know zero about this artist other than she is one of those people (of whom there are several) who think ruining a Hermes handbag is edgy. I think black juice is *trying too hard*. Still if it's good, it's good. I would be the first to admit it.
On the plus side: kudos for her if she is able to tap into a disenfranchised group, as well as be a voice for them; generate a financial stream, etc. But I am partially blaming her for half the world wearing false eyelashes and other icky things.
PS FYI Advance bottles are going for about $80 on ebay

The lines are too blurry for me. How creative is she exactly? What does she create? I know all of her looks are created by Nicola Formichetti. He was (still is) a highly respected fashion stylist, established before her creation. She wears a lot of McQueen, but look under any Youtube video and all the 'Little monsters' are gushing over how creative she is to come up with these looks? Perhaps it's unintentional, but she is definitely absorbing others work as her own (very Madonna.)

I know nothing of her charitable work but this is always to be commended (even when it's for tax purposes. I'm not suggesting it is in this instance.) I can respect her for that.

I'm certain she puts on a grand extravaganza that would be visually enjoyable with ear plugs. The music is only surpassed in annoyance by her faux aloof 'avant garde' persona.

If the fragrance is quality, which I believe it would be based on your recommendation, then I'm glad. That certainly does buck the celebrity trend.

Lady Gaga -- Creative? -- cutting edge? Maybe even some 'crazy mashup bizness'? I've slipped into a fucken parallel world here. Europap and that's it. Bottle looks like some Phantasm bloodsucker copy. Go to hell you talentless twat and take your fucken scent with you. Music analysis ok?

If it wasn't trying too hard it wouldn't be Lady Gaga. Overexposure makes anyone super annoying, but really the thing about a bunch of inexperienced teens misattributing her references is not much of a surprise. It's probably okay to knock off a well-known fashion designer or artist visually, not so much a group of disenfranchised people a'la Madge hmm.

Actually ruining an Hermes bag would be sort of edgy--a bit like The Who smashing guitars in their day--considering Gaga's performance is almost all image and classical reference and those things are an absurd symbol of conformist wealth on the one hand, an announcement of a sort of capitalist self-empowerment and appreciation for craft on the other. Of course she seems to love Hermes bags and just put some studs on them and so forth ... a bit like the Jag Stang horrible celebrity guitar thing, yikes.

Gaga's message and "art" do fall a bit flat, but at least she's controversial. She reminds me more of a Bowie who got big too fast (of course much worse music from her) or a young Prince (ditto worse music, but at least she writes songs too) than a Madonna.

I love how viciously hostile you are towards someone who is in real terms perfectly harmless and does nothing but give lots of people plenty of harmless entertainment. I mean that's putting to one side all the support she has lent to the Gay rights campaign and the overall message she sends about celebrating and valuing individuality and uniqueness. I mean if you hated Kim Kardashian this much I could buy that, but Gaga? Really?


I don't buy all of her public persona but every artist has one and it's not like you can fault her for commitment to it, I like her music but I'm not a super-fan. I've said elsewhere that I'll be buying this perfume no matter what, if I don't like it I'll keep it as a collectable and if it's good I'll keep on using and buying it. You may or may not like her as an artist, you may or may not like her music, but she's not actually worthy of your hate and prejudging her perfume based on whatever your prejudices about her may be seems a touch...irrational maybe?

You are so right. As the "outsiders" we often forget that our "hatred" of an artist is actually a reflection of our own character. I have found that experts in any genre tend not to "hate on" anyone in that same genre - yet we as non-musicians (or non-successful musicians) aren't able to live and let live.

You have made me excited again about this fragrance, and also sent me a nudging reminder that I need to stop feeling negative feelings towards people who are successful at whatever they do, and focus on my own business. After all, when I am at my happiest and most productive moments I do not have time to focus on hating a celebrity. I think that says a lot about the extremely negative naysayers. Thank you.
