I love Gaga for all her crazy antics, but do I want to smell like Gaga? After receiving her new fragrance collection, I’m going to have to say, “No.” The packaging is quite chic and the black lotion (literally, black) is ingenious. Any fears of it turning my skin black were dispelled, as the lotion rapidly absorbed into transparency. However, the scent was so strong (like mind-numbingly strong) that I developed a headache just as quickly. It doesn’t smell bad; it is just SO strong.
Jasmine and tiger orchidea florals have been combined with a potent incense undertone, along with bold notes of honey and apricot (did I mention this is a very STRONG fragrance?). This black magic is memorable, like Gaga herself. And just like her style, it’s not for everyone. If you like a scent that lasts even after two showers, this is the one for you. At Sephora for $55.
If you want to try for yourself, we are giving a bottle of the dark potion away!
