FAME by Lady Gaga and Steven Klein, Thursday Giveaway!

Hey Y’All,

You’ve probably seen it already but I wanted to put it up just in case you’d missed it. Lady Gaga has released her Steven Klein photographed advertisement for her forthcoming fragrance, FAME. The scentbloggosphere has gone CER AAY ZEEE!! I am seriously impressed with the image, it shows wit and style. It also shows what a remarkable business woman she is. What’s the demographic? Girls and gays, BINGO! This will have a multitude of both enthralled. I am sad my mate Perry couldn’t swipe me some FAME to pre-release sample but life is like that. Can’t wait! And below it a short enticing film about the fragrance being made. She is AWESOME! Laughing all the way to the bank…… (Just noticed CandyPerfumeBoy beat me to it, GRRR!)

  1. Tommi Sooni and Smell Bent!
    (Love the Smell Bent reviews; dying to try now – as if my to-test list isn’t long enough)

    Tommi Sooni and Smell Bent (I commented earlier but it’s not showing!).

    Loved the Smell Bent reviews, dying to try. (My test list is long enough already, but oh well.)

    Isn’t it amazing how, with so many fragrances out there, we are still constantly surprised by the new ones we sniff?

    • Yes it is amazing that we are still surprised. Good too.
      The reason you weren’t showing is because I have to approve your first comment. As you can imagine, they aren’t all as lovely as yours,

  3. Loved both of these perfumer reviews Tommi Sonni and Smell Bent. ❤

  4. Anna says:

  6. Poodle says:

    Big congrats on your new views milestone! A few more videos should get you up to your birthday goal.

    The two fragrance houses you highlighted this week were the very different from each other Smell Bent and Tommi Sooni. While I love the fun aspect of Smell Bent’s approach (and website), and am very intrigued by the fact that nitro musk is an element of Apres Soleil, I really appreciate the elegant, thoughtful, one-scent-at-a-time approach of the Tommi Sooni house. Each of their scents sounds wonderful and focussed rather than grab-a-trend.

    As for FAME: I’m annoyed (but not overly surprised) by much of the North American commentary on the print ad and the video. Gulliver and the Lilliputians works for me (more so in light of the whingeing) and, as much as I love those elegant videos by Chanel’s Jacques Polge, I thought the FAME video was hilarious. Can’t imagine the fragrance living up to the hopes, but maybe she can sell that too, ie “What were you expecting? Celebrity scents are rarely great.”

    • I’m with you. Did you see on one of the blogs where the guys were called Doozers from Fraggle Rock? HAH!
      My mate Perry said the fragrance is solid, she smells awesome. Probably one of the few celebs who has been wearing her celebuscent non stop to get it right.
      You are in the draw, GOOD LUCK!,

    Tommi Sumi and smell bent!!!! love the ga ga print ad sooooooo much! That Body 🙂

  10. Tatiana says:

    Tommi Sooni and Smell Bent. I love how excited and enthusiastic you get about perfume, your readers, perfume ads, etc! It always brightens my day to read your blog posts. Thanks for the generous draw!

    • Hey Tatiana,
      It’s kind of funny, I can tell when my enthusiasm becomes a little mental because my partner has to do a little “calm down” dance with me. I’m glad my crazed enthusiasm hits your spot,
      Good luck in the draw,
      Portia xx

    I haven’t tried any Smell Bents, although they sound intriguing. I’ve liked every Tommi Sooni I’ve tried, and the Passerelle sounds wonderful.
    I do have poorish eyesight, but every time I see that Gaga photo, I think at first she has huntsmen spiders crawling all over her. It gives me the creeps.

    • YAY! Correct! and you will love the Smell Bent stuff.
      They are the hottest huntsman spiders ever. We get quite a lot of those here in leafy Sydney, they tend to populate cars here and surprise you at awkward moments. Scare the living shit out of you.

    Don’t forget to list a linkback to your fabbo giveaways on the Scented Events FB page (you’re a group member, right? If not, get in there – it’s totally public but I couldn’t figure out how to do the page and with the Group people can post without me having to do it ).


  15. […] be up on Perfume Posse with a super awesome guest post. Also don’t forget to enter our Thursday GIVEAWAY […]

  16. ok, im in too….. Tommi Sooni, and Smell Bent……. but i have to say, the hairs are still standing up on the back of my neck after watching the GaGa Ad….. I LOVE HER!!!!!! the french accent is of course totally seducing, but to describe the scent as PULVERISED APRICOT, CRUSHED HEART OF TIGER ORCHIDEA AND TEARS OF BELLADONNA is, in my mind, pure genius!
    Gorgeous kisses and congrats to you all for reaching your goal once again… oh and youve let the cat out of the bag… 25th Sept huh???? xxxxxxxxx love you.

  17. Louise says:

    Tommi Sooni and Smell Bent. Just read your post on Parfums d’Empire and immediately ordered the sample pack – what a bargain! Congrats on your guest star role on Perfume Posse too!!

    • Thanks Louise! It’s pretty awesome writing for one of the best and biggest. My stomach gets butterflies every time.
      Yes, The PdE sample pack is ridiculously good value. Please come back and tell me with one/s you get in FB.

    I like your review on Small Bent. I’ve never heard of this brand but Incensed Short Fuse and Apres Soleil seem interesting 🙂
