Lady Gaga, after revealing that her upcoming perfume by Coty will contain controversial notes of blood and semen, is offering further details. First of all, and in a welcome twist, some would say (who?), the blood note is reportedly based on a sample of her own. It would have been headspaced, analyzed and reconstructed for inclusion in the juice.
I had said when reviewing Beyoncé Heat that "Personally, I am still waiting for the celeb scent with a headspace capture of the aroma of the celebrity's belly-button," We're in the realm of reality now, although the updated status is that I am still awaiting now for a celeb fragrance based on her or his emotional chart reconstructed thanks to sensor captors, like it's been done in Shanghai...
Lady Gaga is quick to reassure her fans by adding that the perfume does not smell literally of blood and semen but that the notes are there to evoke a primal feeling. Some fragrances like to conjure up the sensation of walking in a dewy garden at dawn, hers will be that moment of the day, or night, right after sex, bang. She said,
“I wanted to extract the feeling and sense of blood and semen from molecular structures. You get the after feeling of sex from the semen and the blood is primal."
In, arguably, the most intimate celebrity fragrance yet to see the day of light, you will be able to carry the genetic scent of Lady Gaga on skin, as she underlines herself, "It was taken out of my own blood sample so it’s the sense of having me on your skin.” (not under your skin.)
Finally, to assuage all preconceived notions about what the overall smell of the perfume will be, Lady Gaga gives more than a hint, "Actually the perfume smells like an expensive hooker,” which must say something about her smell-identity.
Luxury and lust will be in your bottle of Lady Gaga scent, rest assured, for now.
