Lady Gaga Fame Eau de Parfum Review

Rumors of blood, sex, semen, and even Gaga’s own DNA peppered the launch of Lady Gaga Fame Eau de Parfum. Just like the enigmatic Gaga herself, this launch was clouded in all sorts of mystery and rumors that had us eager to get a sniff of what sort of perfume creation this eccentric celeb would create.

Lady Gaga spend over two years creating Fame with Haus Laboratories. It’s one of the first ever black eau de parfume formulas. The innovative fluid technology is black, like the soul of fame Gaga proclaims, but becomes invisible when airborne.

Fame isn’t limited to an Eau de Parfume launch, it also includes Shower Gel, Body Lotion Limited Edition Soap (shaped like a black egg no less), and rollerball. The scent is built around three master accords that are dark, sensual, and light.

Does the Fame perfume live up to the legendary Lady Gaga herself?

Viva La Juicy La Fleur Review

Where are my Juicy fans? I adore Juicy’s fragrances so of course I indulged in Viva la Juicy La Fleur Eau de Toilette when I saw it launch at Macy’s.

Who can resist the sweet fruity notes that make up many of Juicy’s fragrances? They may not be your deal but I love me a sweet, fruity, playful fragrance like this.

Illamasqua Freak Eau de Parfum Review

Getting my freak on today courtesy Illamasqua Freak Eau de Parfum ($90).

As Illamasqua is known for their bold take on makeup, I expected no less from their fragrance. Honestly, if anything at all, Freak Eau de Parfume sounded positively enchanting and dare I say scary thanks to notes like Frankincense and Myrrh (a little gold and we can relive the birth of Christ).

I expected dark, dank, and overpowering but what I got was a terribly interesting experience to say the least.

Forsaken Eau de Parfum Review

Forsaken Eau de Parfum, inspired by HBO’s hit series True Blood, is a newly launched HSN exclusive fragrance that will bring out your inner vamp.

This ravishing scent had me skeptical at first. Mmm a perfume based on a TV show? How good could it be? But after using it I absolutely adore it.

Bath & Body Works From Paris with Love Paris in Bloom, Sweet in Paris, and Paris Nights Fine Fragrance Mist Review

Been a while since I purchased fragrance mists from Bath & Body Works but I could not pass up the From Paris with Love Collection.

The Bath & Body Works From Paris with Love Collection is a selection of three new scents inspired by the beauty and romance of Paris. I didn’t love Paris Amour when it originally released so I almost passed by these new fragrances on that dislike. Paris Amour comes across cheap to me, a bit overpowering, and the mainly floral notes just aren’t my bag.

However, I think Bath & Body Works created a nice selection of scents with this new launch that will capture the interest of those who like sweet, those who like floral, and those wanting a little sultry and sophistication.

Take a look!
