Lady Gaga Perfume

Posted on: March 3, 2011

In an interview with Suzy Menkes (NY Times/Intl. Herald Tribunal) yesterday at the Mugler show in Paris, Lady Gaga sat closely by the side of her “best friend,” Mugler creative director Nicola Formichetti and spoke about their collaborations and the fashion world. Lady Gaga has been openly discussing news of her forthcoming, debut perfume since January. When Menkes asked “what it will smell of,” Nicola Formachetti chuckled, obviously already being in the know of the shock value to come. Gaga explains that one of the several notes in the perfume is in fact based on her own blood! She says the reason is “so that it would smell like and feel like” her. As if that isn’t enough shock value, she’s reported saying previously that the “feeling and scent” of semen would be included as well! The perfumers at Coty, who will be producing the perfume, must be thrilled! Actually they probably seriously are thrilled in a geeky perfumer way, to be recreating these scents synthetically. You have time to consider whether or not you will even test the fragrance, as there’s no news yet on when we can expect to take a wiff of the bodily fluids. I for one can’t wait to find out if it will be strangely beautiful, or just repulsive. Rest assured I’ll be keeping tabs and posting news on this one though.
