Katy Perry: now Queen of Fragrances
She might think of herself as King of the Jungle with her new single Roar but clearly she is the Queen of the Fragrances.
Katy Perry says that her new perfume, Killer Queen, was indeed inspired by the Queen song.
Killer Queen has been in my vocabulary since I was 15, because of the song by Queen,” said Perry. “Freddie Mercury painted the lyrics of this woman who I wanted to be. She seemed very powerful, and she captivated a room when she walked in. I feel like, after all this time, it was appropriate to use that name in association with something I did. I feel like I’m falling, finally, into that woman Freddie painted.”
The fragrance itself will get its wearer noticed, with top notes of wild berry, dark plum and bergamot, middle notes of red velvet flower, jasmine sambac and plumeria, and base notes of patchouli and something deliciously called ‘liquid praline’.
The bottle, meanwhile, is inspired by a queen’s scepter, the distinct jewel-shaped container refracting shades of royal red and gold in the right light and basically screaming ‘decadence’.
All very Katy Perry, we’re sure you’ll agree.
Killer Queen is available in Eau de Parfum 100 ml (RRP $69), 50 ml ($49) and kitty-cat size 30 ml ($39). Meow!
