A perfume that’s totally Gaga

London - Lady Gaga has revealed the secret recipe for her new perfume Fame — and it’s every bit as bizarre as her on-stage costumes.

The pop star’s fragrance includes “tears of belladonna, crushed heart of tiger orchidea with a black veil of incense, pulverised apricot and saffron and honey drops”.

The perfume itself is black (though turns clear once sprayed onto the skin) and is packaged like a weapon, in a grenade-shaped bottle gripped by metallic claws. Gaga, who wore a dress made of raw meat to the MTV awards in 2010, perhaps knows better than anyone the importance of a good perfume.

While some fans may question whether the poisonous belladonna plant actually weeps, or if an orchid even has a heart to crush, others will just be relieved beef carpaccio didn’t make the ingredients list. - Daily Mail
