Gaga's fragrance to smell like "blood and semen"

Seems like something the Man Repeller would wear.

According to sources, Lady Gaga has requested that her first fragrance smell like "blood and semen."

Typical of Gaga to choose something so shocking and out there, knowing that her little monsters will support virtually anything she puts her name on.

Gaga's first fragrance with Coty will launch in Spring 2012.

Can't wait?

Would you wear "blood and semen" scented perfume?
