Katy Perry is one of the greatest singers and songwriters of our generation. In most recent years, Perry also dipped into the world of beauty by offering quite a few fragrances under her name in which she chose. Some of them include Mad Potion, Royal Revolution, Killer Queen and Purr. With Purr being Perry’s very first fragrance and Mad Potion her latest, Perry has managed to take us through a journey of scents in a five year period. What separates these fragrances from each other? What makes them great gifts this holiday?
Mad Potion: When you first smell this fragrance, you get a plethora of notes. According to the description this Katy Perry fragrance includes: Tahitian vanilla orchid, sweet white peony, and fresh and crisp apple musk as the top notes, Madagascar bourbon vanilla, jasmine petals, and soft and whipped fluffy musk as the middle notes, and Mexican vanilla bean absolute, amber, and musk as the bottom notes. Introduced in Fall of 2015, this fragrance tells a story that really embraces warm notes and creamy floral more than anything else. Truth be told, the notes that are the most evident are: vanilla, vanilla orchid, musk, apple, amber, jasmine and peony. You can also smell more gourmand than the description, so the musk is not overpowering or too timeless in this fragrance. This fragrance is great for a younger demographic; however, if you are mature and prefer a warm vanilla fragrance, I highly recommend this one as your choice.
Royal Revolution: The top notes of Royal Revolution consist of pink freesia and red pomegranate. The middle notes include: sandalwood, orange flower, and jasmine petals, as the base notes consist of mystical blackthorn and vanilla orchid. Launched in 2014, this fragrance really embodies a classic fruity floral. The notes that very obvious in this particular Katy Perry perfume include: blackthorn, vanilla orchid, pomegranate, leather, orange blossom, musk, pink freesia, jasmine, and sandalwood with the blackthorn and pomegranate really coming through after the first spray. This fragrance is amazing for those of you that love a classic fruity floral fragrance without the warm notes.
Killer Queen: When you think of the top notes being dark plum, wild berries and bergamot, the middle notes being red velvet flower, rainbow plumeria, and natural jasmine sambac and the bottom notes being cashmeran, natural patchouli heart, and liquid praline. Whether you are looking to own the throne, this fragrance truly is killer. Why? Introduced to the world of beauty in 2013, this fragrance really combines the essence of fruity, floral, warm and herbal together. In fact, the notes that really come through in Killer Queen are an array of forest fruits, praline, patchouli, plum, cashmeran, frangipani, celosia, jasmine sambac, and bergamot. This fragrance is not quite gourmand nor fruity in comparison to her other fragrances, but still possesses enough notes to make it sweeter than a musk, wood or leather scent. This fragrance is great for those who are not a fan of sweeter fragrances, but still appreciate a clean feminine scent.
Purr: When combining fruity notes with floral notes, the result is something special. Especially when it comes to this amazing Katy Perry fragrance. The top notes are described as peach nectar, forbidden apple and green bamboo. The middle notes are best described as jasmine blossom, pink freesia, and Bulgarian rose. The bottom notes are described as vanilla orchid, creamy sandalwood and white amber. Launched in 2010, this is Katy Perry’s first and original fragrance. The notes that are evident in Purr include: peach, vanille, coconut, red apple, gardenia, bamboo, jasmine, orchid, musk, freesia, rose, sandalwood and amber. Out of all of Perry’s fragrance, this is by far the sweetest fragrance. Although the demographic fits young women, if you love and appreciate a sweet fragrance offering a plethora of fruity notes with creamy floral and warm undertones, this is the one you will love the most.
