Today I am reviewing a fragrance that has got SO many people excited, it is the second release from Lady Gaga’s Haus Laboratories which is titled Eau De Gaga.
The first thing that struck me with this before I even smelt it (Yes I ordered it before sniffing it, don’t judge me) is that it seems very different from her first release Fame (Black Fluid). It is packaged in a much more conservative looking box which looks very retro and understated. The only thing that does bug me a little about it as I like keeping things in their box is the fact it smudges and shows fingerprints worse than a phone screen.
This is how Haus Laboratories officially described the concept in the press release:
“The striking EAU DE GAGA bottle mirrors the perfume by uniting masculine and feminine design aesthetics. Its stark lines and sleek black lacquered finish deliver a bold statement in simplicity.”
I do have to agree, it does somehow manage to be both masculine but feminine at the same time which I personally do like. It lacks the theatrics of Fame but that may appeal more to her casual fans or the ordinary perfume shopper.
The actual scent is described as follows:
EAU DE GAGA, the fragrance for the adventurous woman and the man who loves her.
It does smell exactly as described, the second you spray it you are dazzled by lime, after a few minutes it settles into the musky and mildly floral white violet and then the warm and comforting smell of leather settles into the base. It is no where near as sweet or heady as Fame and it does have much more of a conventional feel to it. I personally feel it smells much more expensive and unisex than Fame.
It lasts brilliantly on the skin and is not overpowering at all so I think this will be much more popular with people than the unusual sweet and heady mix that was fame. It comes in 30ml, 50ml and 100ml bottles.
