Final details of Lady Gaga's perfume have been leaked by a Canadian fashion editor via Twitter.
Lisa Tant, the editor in chief of
Canadian fashion magazine Flare, tweeted an image of the bottle, set to
hit stores in August, along with its much-anticipated name and scent notes.
For over two years the 26-year-old singer has been publicly teasing her fans with small bites of information about the rumoured perfume, which in 2010 was reported to smell like 'blood and semen,' and now Ms Tant has clarified details.

Originally thought to be called Monster, the editor revealed the fragrance will be called Fame, and, in Lady Gaga's words, will actually 'smell like an expensive hooker'.

Ms Tant quoted Lady Gaga, allegedly at a press preview for the perfume, tweeting: 'It was taken out of my own blood sample, so it’s a sense of having me on your skin.
'I wanted to extract sort of the feeling and sense of blood and semen from molecular structures, so that’s where [the rumors] came from.
'That is in the perfume, but it doesn’t smell like that. Actually, the perfume smells like an expensive hooker.'
The fragrance appears to be a black liquid that reportedly changes color when applied to skin.
Ms Tant has since taken down the image and quote from her Twitter account, for unknown reasons.
She has not responded to questions from MailOnline asking whether she in fact breached an embargo, or whether her tweets about the perfume were a hoax.
Lady Gaga is also tipped to cover Vogue's famed September issue for 2012, to coincide with the perfumes official launch.
Her last cover for the magazine was in March 2011.
