Lady Gaga Fame - Sephora Sample

When I ordered my awesome Sephora Color Daze Blockbuster makeup palette I, as always, got 3 free samples. I'm actually reviewing this sample as it took me by surprise. I don't generally like or order perfume as I have a really sensative nose and most perfumes tend to make me a little nauseous. But the majority of the samples from Sephora this time around were perfumes, and Lady Gaga Fame was the only one that I had heard of so I selected it.
 Disclaimer: I purchased this product with my own funds, I am not being paid or compensated by the company in question. My opinions are entirely my own.
The description inside says that this scent is "Tears of Belladonna, Crushed Heart of Tiger Orchidea with a Black Veil of Incense, Pulverized Apricot, and the Combinative Essences of Saffron and Honey Drops."
And apparently the fluid is black but once airborne it is clear.
Being that the sample case is black, I can't really comment on whether or not the fluid is as well, but I doubt the description is lieing, so it gets the benefit of the doubt in this case.
But on to the scent itself. As I said above, I don't like perfume. And after reading the description I was pretty sure it wasn't going to be for me. I had actually planned on giving it to my cousin Katie being that she loves perfumes and scented everything. But I figured I'd give it a shot, just to know what I had. I spritzed it onto my wrist and my mind was seriously blown. It's a really deep scent and it's not overwhelmingly strong. Like, if you're standing next to me you can smell it, but if you're across the room from me you won't. It's really well balanced that way. The honey and apricot stand out and make the scent slightly sweet and very appealing. It doesn't have that sharpness that many perfumes get.
I find this perfume to be absolutely heavenly. So I looked up the prices for full size bottles on and for a 1.7oz bottle it is $55.00 USD, for a 1oz bottle it's $42.00 USD, and there is also a 0.34oz rollerball for $19.00 USD.
I'm considering purchasing the rollerball because it's cheap-ish and since I almost never wear perfume, I see no reason to spend around $50.00 on it. However, if you are a perfume person with money to spend I would definitely recommend this one.
If I end up buying the rollerball I'll let you know how it goes. I know that rollerballs tend to be less strong than the sprays, but that's probably perfect for me. Til next time!
