Lady Gaga's Fame Perfume Named UK's Best Selling In 2012

The 'Bad Romance' star's first fragrance came out top in a list of celebrity scents released this year.

Lady Gaga's Fame perfume has been named as the UK's best selling, in a new poll by The Fragrance Shop.

The 'You & I' star's scent beat competition from the likes of the James Bond 007 fragrance, which came in at second and Britney Spears' Midnight Fantasy in third.

The top ten also featured Madonna's Truth Or Dare and newly reformed 90s pop stars Steps with their Guilty Pleasure.

Gaga's black liquid perfume contains such exotic ingredients as "Tears of belladonna, crushed heart of tiger orchidea with a black veil of incense, pulverised apricot and the combinative essences of saffron and honey drops."

Upon its September release, the perfume sold six million bottles in one week – making it the second fastest selling of all time behind Coco Chanel.

As well as enjoying fantastic sales of her fragrance in the shops, the singer has also this week been giving her top Christmas shopping tips to fans.

She tweeted: "I'm telling you, if your in a christmas pinch go to vintage shops, most have archive jewelry from the fifties + affordable! great presents!," as she told her fans ways to save money.
