She is famed for her eccentric style and personality so when Lady Gaga announced she was launching a new perfume with fragrance notes of blood and semen nobody was very surprised.
What is surprising though is that her debut fragrance Fame, which contains notes of blood and semen, has become the number one best-selling women’s fragrance at Superdrug just a week after hitting the shelves.
Advanced fragrance technology means that the dramatic looking black liquid turns clear as soon as it is sprayed in to the air, and the bottle is pure Gaga: black and gold featuring gilded monster claws.
