A Very Gaga Perfume

Hey guys!
So a big hot topic right now in the fashion/beauty world is Lady Gaga's brand new (and first!) perfume called "FAME". The perfume is already selling like hot cakes and getting great reviews from what I've been seeing around. People are literally going gaga over this next big thing.

Here's a little idea of the retail prices of the perfume:
Sephora website -

 0.34 oz Eau de Parfum Rollerball 19$ CAN
1 oz Eau de Parfum Spray -  39$ CAN
1.7 oz Eau de Parfum Spray -  59$ CAN
3.4 oz Eau de Parfum Spray -  89$ CAN
5oz FAME Black Soap -  15$ CAN

I honestly find this very well priced for such an elaborate perfume. It is not as pricey as a perfume from a brand like Chanel and yet it smells like one. I like that there are many different sizes too; so everyone can afford a little piece of luxury. The advertising of this product was very controversial (see the first picture of this post and you'll know why!) but so is Gaga herself and therefore I think it represents her well and caters to her fans like it is meant to do. Gaga herself helped market the product by constantly tweeting about it and by opening up pop-up shops specifically for the product in places like Tokyo; which definitely got it noticed.
The perfume was created by Gaga's own Haus Laboratories and with fragrance company Coty. One of the unique things that people have been talking about when it comes to this product is that it is made in a way that highlights something about each note in the fragrance. There is no one note that is stronger than another. 
Notes in the fragrance are:Belladonna
Honey Drops
Tiger Orchidea
Jasmin Sambac

The perfume itself is black when in the bottle but once airbone it becomes invisible. Gaga said that it is black because that is the color of the soul of fame.  The design of the bottle represents Gaga and her sense of style well. It has a very bold, mysterious look to it just like Gaga often has herself with her unique fashion sense. The packaging is beautiful and very luxurious for a celebrity perfume. I'm loving it!  

I am most definitely going to be picking up a bottle of this interesting perfume soon! 
What about you? Have you smelt it yet?
