Lady Gaga's Fame to debut in Japan

Lady Gaga's first perfume, entitled Fame, will make its worldwide debut in Tokyo, Japan.

The eccentric singer's scent and related products will go on sale at the Tokyu Plaza Omotesando Harajuku shopping centre in Shibuya Ward, Tokyo, for a limited period from August 1st.

This is almost an entire month before the perfume goes on general global sale on August 22nd, reports The Japan Times.

As well as selling the perfume, the shopping centre will display a message from the 'Bad Romance' singer to her Little Monsters (the name of Gaga's fans).

The scent is made by Coty Beauty and will be sold for ¥4,725 for a 30ml bottle, while a 100ml bottle will set customers back ¥9,975.

Other department stores in Japan will start selling the scent in September 2012.

Last month, an image of the Fame perfume bottle was leaked on micro-blogging site Twitter leading Gaga to post her own photo of the bottle.

It showed a black bottle in a clear bottle complete with an art deco-inspired chunky gold lid.

The Marry The Night singer also responded to rumours that the perfume contains blood and semen stating this isn't true.

Instead, the fragrance has three main accords rather than top, heart and bottom notes, which work together and with a person's natural scent to create a great smell all day.

The main accords include belladonna and deadly nightshade, amber, saffron, honey, crushed tiger orchid and jasmine.

When asked by a fan on the mirco-blogging site about which gender the perfume has been created for, Gaga replied: "My perfume was designed for women, but a lot of my gay friends wear it."

Fans of the Born This Way star may have been lucky enough to hang out with her in a Japanese karaoke bar in May this year.

Between her sold-out shows in the country as part of her Born This Way Ball tour, the 26-year-old lived it up on a wild night out enjoying karaoke.
