As my regulars know, I don’t often talk about celebrity-inspired fragrances because I usually think they’re…well…stupid. There are few celebs that I would want to smell like. Britney Spears? No thank you! But, I made an exception for my girl, Katy Perry. Yes–I tried her perfume and I liked it…(sung along to her classic song, “I Kissed a Girl”) When I was offered a sample to try out I just couldn’t resist. Sue me. It’s called Killer Queen and it’s created by Lauren Le Guernec of IFF. It’s a sultry scent and I really was surprised how much I enjoyed it. And my husband actually noticed it on me and complimented me!
Here are the deets for you fragrance addicts:
Red Velvet Flower
Natural Jasmine Sambac
Natural Patchouli Heart
Aside from the scent itself, I am obsessed with the bottle. It’s inspired by a queen’s scepter, the distinct jewel-shaped bottle in shades of royal red and gold portrays sexy sophistication and lawless luxury. The faceted bottle rests languorously on its side, and really could be a lovely decoration itself. The regality of the bottle is enhanced with a rich gold crown showcasing a custom crest capturing Katy Perry’s playful essence—regal cats, a music clef, hearts and dagger. Does it remind anyone else of the Elixir of life in Death Becomes Her (classic with Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn)?
