We don't know what Lady Gaga's soon-to-be-released perfume will smell like -- raw meat? Papier-màché? Madonna's perfume? -- but we do know what it will be called ... Monster.

Lady Gaga Monster
TMZ has learned the fragrance company behind Gaga's upcoming scent has filed trademark paperwork for the name "Monster" -- with a specific use of "perfumery."

The stench is due to come out in 2012 ... don't ask, don't smell.
