As I said, I bought this in February when I was buying the Too Faced Sweethearts blush. Ze Boyfriend had given me money for it and I had a little bit left from Christmas. I bought both, because I had seen the gift set on Sephora.com under the Sale section while I was checking the availability. I immediately sent a text to Ze Boyfriend to tell him that it was a birthday gift for me, from both of us (that made him very happy). I like giving myself little gifts for my birthday and I don't really like people buying perfume for me, since they could get the wrong thing. It's also generally a luxury purchase! (I also know not everyone likes Gaga and may hate her, but that's your opinion!)
The gift set was on sale for $45 (originally $57!) and is still available. I've never received a gift set ever, for anything. I know buying perfume is definitely a personal thing; if you haven't smelled the perfume before or if you haven't smelled on yourself, it can be difficult for someone to buy you a bottle! I made my decision after opening one of those little scented perfume ads. I swiped it on and wore it around the house, smelling myself at various times. I was hooked!

$19.00 (0.34 oz Rollerball) + $55.00 (1.7 oz Spray bottle) = $74 worth of product for $45. It's also about 2 oz of perfume! What you're basically getting for your money is a hell of a lot of perfume for a pretty sweet price.

Whether you like Gaga or not, this perfume is certainly something to check out. The gift set is still available at Sephora, but I highly recommend you check store availability before rushing out to grab this. The 1.7 oz bottle and 3.4 oz bottle are both on sale, the 1.7 for $49.00 (originally $55.00) and the 3.4 for $65.00 (originally $79.00). Aside from the two bigger bottles and rollerball, there's a 1 oz bottle. Ulta also carries FAME, as do many other retailers. I know people generally hate celebrity perfumes because they tend to be horrible and without thought. Not the case here!
PS: Gaga also released FAME shower gel and lotion, both black. The shower gel is still available at Sephora for $25.00. I've also been really off in taking pictures today! Guess it's the rain/lightning. Also...
