Does Lady Gaga want her perfume to smell like “blood and semen”?


I was trying to avoid doing this story, but I guess I have to. According to random sources, Lady Gaga has some unique ideas for the perfume that she’s branding. Gaga isn’t just going to let the professionals do their work and pick out some florals and citrus scents for Gaga to slap her name on. No, Gaga is involved with the perfume every step of the way, and she allegedly has an opinion on what the perfume should smell like: blood and semen. Seriously, my gag reflex is in overdrive today already (I think I’m getting something, I feel especially barfy). I cannot even concentrate on this too much, because I might end up throwing up.

Celebrity perfumes are a dime a dozen. You can smell like Kim Kardashian, Posh Spice, Taylor Swift, Reese Witherspoon– almost any Tinsel Towner you like.

But Lady Gaga isn’t your typical, sweet-smelling celeb. She’s far, far from it. According to, the shocking superstar is developing her first fragrance, and Mother Monster has reportedly requested that the scent “smell of blood and semen.”

Hmm, bodily fluids haven’t had as much success as say, lavender or hibiscus in the world of fragrance, but Gaga is the queen of reinvention and pushing the envelope. And even though most of us probably don’t think we want to smell like blood or semen, I bet this racy new product will sell out instantly around the world.

But Little Monsters, please take my advice and wait for Gaga’s perfume to go on sale at a store near you. While making a miniature version of her meat dress might be pretty cool, a homemade concoction of blood and semen is not a scent you should purposefully try to recreate.

Does blood have a smell? I know it has a taste – metallic. But I’ve never sniffed an open wound, so I have no idea. As for “semen”… ugh. Ooooh, here comes the bile. I’m sorry if any of you are reading this before or after lunch. Ugh.

All of that being said, I kind of doubt this. I mean, Gaga might have said something along these lines to someone, but I doubt her perfume is going to end up smelling like this.

    Blood has a smell. It’s not a smell I’d want to spray on my body but it has a smell. I’m so sick of GaGa. Ugh just go away already.

  2. Rita says:


    Blood has a taste, metalic. Yet, you fail to give the other bodily fluid equal time. Hmmmm.

  3. Oi says:

    I’m really starting to hate her. And believe it or not, this ‘blood and semen’ perfume idea is not new. She is such a rip off.

    Her lunatic fans are just gonna have to hate me. I’m fine with that.

  4. QQ says:

    No comment is the right comment. NEXT.

  5. heatheradair says:

    Hmmm – yeah, that’ll bring all the boys around.

    Mmmm – that girl smells like iron and bleach. Lemme get closer to THAT.

    Maybe if that man is Bear Grylls

    Gonna skip my lunch but I think my breakfast is making a re-appearance. Ewww.

  7. Cheyenne says:

    Why not throw in a dollop of dog poop?

  8. BReed says:

    Just when I thought she couldn’t get any stranger……

  9. original kate says:

    gaga is about as creative/interesting as vanilla ice.

  10. Lisa Turtle says:

    I really like Lady Gaga’s music, but I think she is rapidly becoming over-exposed. Gaga has lost touch with what she’s actually famous for – music. It is time to take a step out of the spotlight and record some new tracks. No more famewhoring, no more stupid ploys for attention (like the meat dress), no more crappy products to shill (like the polaroid camera) – sell us what we want from you: MUSIC.

  11. Meow Mix says:

    This is so gross that I’m going to have leave this site and go watch adorable puppies on Youtube

  12. Scarlet Vixen says:

    She gives Tori Spelling a run for her money in the “Worst Cleavage Ever” category. Please cover up the dirty pillows Gaga.

  13. Cherry Rose says:

    When will this vile no talented hack go away? All she does is copy those who did it better and try to tell the teens and tweens of this generation that she’s doing something new and original.

  14. KJ says:

    This is what I read:

    I have always disliked attention whores. I’m not the kind of person who enjoys being the center of attention, I’m kind of even keel, and I hate people who need constant attention to validate themselves. Yes, we get it Gaga, you’re so over the top and unpredictable. Ooooh, blood and semen. You know what would shock me? If this bitch walked a red carpet looking like a normal human being and didn’t spew a bunch of trite shit every time she talked.

    If you have to continually shock people into thinking you’re a visionary, you may not be a visionary. Visionaries don’t have to beat you over the head with how great they are.

  15. K says:

    Blood smells like copper, especially in large amounts.

  16. Az says:

    I read this somewhere but it’ true – and gross so apologies in advance – she should call it period sex.

  17. Raven Sparrow says:

    Sorry! But a perfume like that already exists…

    She is such a copycat! She’ll do anything to stay relevant. Yeah right.

  18. amoteafloat says:

    Blood totally smells metallic.

    As as for semen? I have three words: Bradford Pear trees.

  19. Rita says:

    @Az #16

    Everything sounds so much more intriguing in French:

    Parfum A’Partir de Menstraul Amore

    (I think)

  20. Rene says:

    Oh please, this is such a BS story that started online. Shes not going to seriously do this. Maybe she joked about it or something like that but how can ppl take this seriously and get all pissed off about it. *kanyeshrug

  21. brin says:

    She seems like she’d go for a cat pee/rotten egg aroma.

  22. EdithP says:

    Yes, Allure magazine just had an issue with different perfumes, there was a blood/semen one there, too. Didn’t we get enough of those odors in college?

  23. jover says:

    You have to be completely deluded to believe gaggles is a maverick, avante-garde,etc. Adding to what turtle said, she has become a complete corporate shill, and corporate shills aren’t mavericks, My God, how many lame celebs have perfumes out? I don’t like her music but I wonder if she’s even interested in music she’s so far into this ersatz celebrity world. Most teens don’t like her and have an outlet because all the great music from the 60s to the 90s in all genres is all over youtube so they can escape having her shoved down our throats.

  24. Str8Shooter says:

    Man, I have to say, much as I love her music, I don’t like the fact she feels the need to detract from it with these ridiculous getups!

    First photo: Carol Burnett already did this WAY better years ago!

    Second photo: Gary Oldman in Dracula…again, been there, done that!

    Enough! Focus on the music..leave the shenanigans to talentless hos like Britney and Geisha…er, Keisha!

  25. Hakura says:

    Well, when I heard that you could ‘smell like Kim Kardashian‘, even I have to admit thinking:

    Who would want to smell like shame & urine?”

    I guess if all else fails, she can try to gross people out, like with the meat dress…I highly doubt this will go through, but I wouldn’t be surprised if she proposed the idea. I mean, she is completely committed to ‘shocking people’, so it’s not hard to believe.

    What I *can’t* believe is that the idea had come up before…Who came up with the idea initially?

  26. Marjalane says:

    I bet this skank was one of those kids that stood at the end of the diving board screeching for everyone to “LOOK AT ME, LOOK AT ME, LOOK AT ME”. Her ridiculous personality has turned me off from ever giving her music a chance. Hopefully a pack of wild dogs will attack her the next time she covers herself in meat, blood, and semen. Poor dogs.

  27. Joe says:

    Can’t you just rub up against a stripper pole to get the same desired smell????

  28. LindaR says:

    She looks lke Gollum in the pic with the round glasses.

  29. Solveig says:

    Why should a person buy her perfume if you can achieve the same result wearing rusty iron or,… blood and semen?
    It’s just a – boring – publicity stunt that’s trying to sound artsy.
    There was an artist whose paintings were made of semen and blood, don’t remember his name tho.

  30. Churchston Winsthill says:

    It should smell of pantless attention seeking and mediocre pop music that will be mostly forgotten five years from now.

  31. Someone Else says:


    You just need to simplify it to “LOOK AT ME”. The rest is unnecessary.

    I’ve asked before, now I’m pleading — will someone please get this woman a friend? Her issues are so annoying.

    @Churchston –

    I so hope you’re right, but as I can’t stand her she’ll probably be around forever.

  32. The Bobster says:

    Flesh blood smells like a rusty nail. Aged blood smells like a slaughterhouse.

    Who wants to smell like that?

    And cum? Ewww!

  33. moocowhead says:

    Congratulations, your attention whoring has paid off. This is ridiculous, I like her, but I can’t believe people are even talking about this when it’s an obvious story fed to the press to gain attention. What a load of crap!

  34. Meanchick says:

    Is she going to call it “My undies.”

  35. Angel says:

    I bet she doesn’t smell like blood and semen. But she want that her fans smell like that. Hhaha

    Ok, they deserve it anyway.

  36. hatsumomo says:

    OK so Im, like, totally not trying to shill the scent or anything, and I most likely wont buy it. But hear me out on this. This is an idea thats been explored before. I remember me and my man went into a shop once and I saw a perfum being marketed as a pheromone-based scent. The theory is that people are driven, as well as animals, to mating by the smell of a female. Or the secretions she expels letting males know when she ready to mate. My man said it didnt increase the desire he already had for me, but its something to think about. And for everyone saying semen stinks, it really dosent, at least not to me. Or maybe its the afterglow talking.

  37. Heaven Bound says:

    I am in the medical field and blood does have a smell, it actually smells like it tastes. Like a metallic rusty smell not pleasant at all.. and semen well.. just yuck.

  38. KsGirl says:

    Yeah, the Etat Libre d’Orange line has the blood-semen notes covered. I’ve actually smelled the perfume, it ain’t pleasant. Some insist that it is wearable tho. It is also supposed the have an ‘adrenaline accord’. Mmm hmm. Gaga MUST have heard of this perfume and talked about it and somehow now ppl think she wants her OWN perfume to smell like this?

    Gaga’s perfume should smell of plastic.

  39. teehee says:

    You mean like Iron and Chloride?

  40. Maud says:

    I was thinking of a boogers and toe jam fragrance. You know. Just to be edgy.

  41. Butch says:

    Not as clever as some of the responses in here, but what other scent would she want her signature fucking fragrance to have? I’m kind of surprised she didn’t just go with eau de merde.

  42. Susan says:

    I am soooooooo over Lady Gaga. NEXT!

  43. Sue says:

    what a pain in the a&^ to get dressed in the morning. Every day, “What costume will I wear today”? Join the circus — much easier.

  44. Hakura says:

    @Hatsumomo (41)- “I remember me and my man went into a shop once and I saw a perfum being marketed as a pheromone-based scent.

    I’ve seen stories about that (the pheromones). Most of the tests actually came back with positive results as far as it impacting the results, which women were approached most (those wearing it, or those not wearing it).

    I don’t doubt it’s entirely true. (& this is *not* to make a suggestion as to what shop you were in when you saw it) But a friend of mine was at one of those ‘slumber-parties’ where a representative comes to sell sex toys/ect (the rated R version of AVON), & the pheromone perfumes are *very* popular.

  45. LisaMarie says:

    Speaking as someone who’s dropped a pint of blood on the floor in a laboratory and had it then split open and splatter EVERYWHERE, I can say that blood has a distinct iron/copper smell. It is also a giant pain in the bahookie to clean up.

  46. MrsOdie2 says:

    I know that Gaga’s music/persona/brand is not for my generation because I just don’t get it at all. I will leave her to the twenty somethings who think she’s their god. I mean, they really do. Especially the kids questioning their sexual identity. She is like their GOD. They are not just fans, they are DEVOTED.

  47. HotPockets says:

    MrsOdie, I don’t understand her and I am 23. I also don’t find her appealing or original.

    I really can’t stand Lady Gaga, period. I’m ready for real talent and to put an end to all this over produced, crap artists.

  48. Lia says:

    That woman is profoundly ugly. It makes perfect sense that her scent would be ugly, too. She goes out of her way to be everything that is disgusting about human beings, so having a “perfume” that’s also disgusting would be fitting of her. And, I’m sure some morons would actually buy it because it’s “Gaga”….

  49. hatsumomo says:

    I admit it, it was at a sex shop. Whateves.

  50. Johnthing says:

    She’s a super freak. The kind you don’t take home to mutha. I think even Rick James would agree.

  51. I Choose Me says:

    I dunno about the blood part but it really depends on whose semen she’s going to use. Is it animal semen or human male semen? If it’s human male semen how do you test for the right scent since it depends on the man and what he eats. Some can be pleasant others not so much.

    No, I haven’t given this way to much thought. Why do you ask? :D

  52. LT says:

    Good job GaGa. Because that’s what ladies want to walk around smelling like – jizz.

  53. Hakura says:

    As to the ‘blood’ thing, as someone who has had *hell* in dental health which required countless procedures, I can say with complete certainty that blood does have a smell. Enough of one that too much could make you physically ill >.<

    @LisaMarieIt is also a giant pain in the bahookie to clean up.

    This should go as a word to the wise, if anyone is considering doing anything that would require needing to ‘clean up’ blood.

    @MrsOdie2 – I’m with HotPockets, I’m 24, & *I* don’t get it either. She’s hardly original in *any* sense. I think people have just gotten bored with the ‘usual’ type of ‘outrageous behavior’, & would rather watch Gaga than Lohan.

    @HatsumomoI admit it, it was at a sex shop. Whateves.

    xD! I just didn’t know, so didn’t want to offend by making it sound like that’s the only place one could find such a thing.

  54. gg says:

    Simple, just wear Clorox. Once after I’d scrubbed out the bath with super dooper Comet with bleach, my stupid ex grabbed my hands and smelled them and accused me of cheating. I divorced his dumb ass.

  55. XDDD says:

    Who knows? She’ll probably pull it off.
    Maybe she make it more decent smelling. Or she was joking, and said that to put curiousity in our minds. We’ll just have to wait ’til 2012.

  56. XDDD says:

    So IF it is going to smell like semen/blood, perhaps when it’s processed it won’t smell half bad, or it’ll smell horrible(who knows?)
    And IF she was joking, it just shows what sense o humor she has, which is a good thing. She’s joked about many things before, she was being sarcastic when she said she had a ‘huge donkey dick’ she even makes fun of her own dresses/costumes. Perhaps joking about the smell will open people’s minds a bit, and will make them, fan or not, want to smell it. She’s very smart even though she might be a teeny bit crazy. Her knowing that she will make people actually want to smell the perfume is very smart of her part.
    Last, If it is a horrid smell, at least we have an idea of what Miley Cyrus smells like every morning.

  57. Trashaddict says:

    Different thread, but does her outfit in the first picture intentionally look like a vagina?
