First of all - I am no fragrance guru. I understand the 'notes' which makes up a fragrance, but that's almost as far as it gets. In my opinion, if it smells good, suits me and sits on my skin for a good amount of time then it ticks my boxes.
Miss Perry is one of my favourite artists, stemming back from 'I Kissed A Girl' and the amazing show I saw in KOKO, Camden at one of her first UK tours off the back of the 'One of the Boys' album. I bought Purr when that was released a few years ago, and it was always my everyday scent. The best thing about celebrity fragrances is the price tag - they're always cheaper than designer smells.
I preordered 100ml of Killer Queen - named after the Queen song - from Very.co.uk for £39.99. It arrived this morning, and crikey, it smells good.
Now for the 'technical' bits (taken from Fragrantica.com) - "Top notes include wild berries, dark plum and bergamot accords. The main note of the heart is velvety red flower (Celosia), but there are also Sambac jasmine and rainbow plumeria. The base contains cashmere, patchouli and liquid praline." Got that? In real girl terms, THIS SMELLS GOOD. I spritzed this morning when it arrives and I can still smell it lingering around me 6 hours later. The packaging is also beautiful - a dark red jewel shaped bottle, mimicking a Royal sceptre. Much more mature than the pink and purple Kitty Purry's of her previous fragrances.
I know this is going to fit straight in to my morning routine and become my end of Summer fragrance.
