The primal scent of blood and semen (“nature’s flowers”) is what Lady Gaga had intended for her two-years-in-the-making debut perfume – “Fame.” Until earlier this week, the diva’s hotly-anticipated product was a closely-guarded secret.

One Lisa Tant, Canuck editor of the Canadian fashion rag Flare, reportedly leaked a low-res photo of the bottle just a few days ago. The cyber-move forced the Fame Monster to respond in kind. Indeed, she posted a better quality photo on Twitter Wednesday. It’s an egg-shaped design, with the perfume itself a black liquid (rest assured, it goes on clear!).

Gawker uncovers the actual description printed on the packaging. Lady Gaga’s Fame smells like:

  • “tears of belladonna”
  • “crushed heart of tiger orchidea”
  • “a black veil of incense”
  • “the combinative essences of saffron and honeydrops”
  • “pulverized apricots”

Not quite the badassery some may have expected. Seems like the sludge could smell more like the absolute olfactory nightmare inside any Hollister/Abercrombie store. Or maybe just a hotel mattress.
