What Lady Gaga's Perfume Actually Smells Like

In a world where celebrity fragrances are a dime a dozen (Paris Hilton has 15), Lady Gaga managed to stand out as usual when word got out that she wanted her first fragrance Fame to smell "like blood and semen."
Thankfully, that idea has been nixed -- but this being Gaga, it's still going to smell pretty darn weird.
According to the bottle itself (which she tweeted a picture of after various fashion editors already leaked the photos), Fame smells like "tears of Belladonna, crushed heart of tiger orchidea, with a black veil of incense, pulverized apricot, and, the combinative essences of saffron and honey drops."
You have to admit, the blood and semen combo was a lot easier to visualize.
But she reportedly did end up using her own blood sample for the final product.
"It was taken out of my own blood sample, so it's a sense of having me on your skin," she told Australian radio hosts Kyle and Jackie O, according to Fashionista.com. "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."
So if you want to smell like a prostitute, Gaga's perfume is due out this Fall.
