We're big Katy Perry fans around here; my girls love her music and I love the positive, girl-power rich messages that her music promotes.  Since we're all such big fans, we naturally couldn't wait to try her latest fragrance, Killer Queen by Katy Perry.  We received Killer Queen by Katy Perry to review last week and my house has been filled with notes of Wild Berry, Red Velvet Flower and Natural Patchouli Heart, ever since. 


About Killer Queen by Katy Perry...

Katy Perry introduces her latest fragrance Killer Queen by Katy Perry ($59), just in time for fall. The new, strikingly gorgeous perfume captures Katy Perry’s rebellious spirit, throwing convention to the wind. Inspired by a queen’s scepter, the distinct jewel-shaped bottle in shades of royal red and gold portray sexy sophistication and lawless luxury. The faceted bottle rests languorously on its side, like a loose, precious gem fit for a Queen.

“When I was creating Killer Queen, I was really inspired by the idea of a strong, confident woman in power and that is exactly what I hoped to put into this fragrance, something that brings out the power inside of you.”
Katy Perry

When it comes to fragrance, I am extremely picky as many popular perfumes give me a killer headache after a while, thankfully, Killer Queen is not one of them--it smells amazing!  Of course, 30-something moms are probably not the demographic that the people behind Killer Queen are going after, so the real test was whether or not my two oldest daughters would like it as much as I do.

My daughters seem to have inherited my love of all things that smell fabulous and girly, because they are always using my perfume or stealing it altogether and Killer Queen was one that they instantly took to...like mother, like daughters I suppose.  When I asked my girls how they liked Killer Queen, their answers were simple, yet spoke volumes.  "It smells great and kind of makes you feel powerful, maybe it's the bottle.", said Drama Teen.  "I LOVE the bottle and the smell is strong and makes you think of something that somebody important, you know, like a queen or Katy Perry, would wear.  I like it.", was Sporty Spice's offering.  I must say, my girls are spot on with this one, I think the bottle is so unique and it instantly sparks conversation when someone sees it for the first time and it does have a strong (but not too strong and not at all in a bad way), bold fragrance, with a hint of sexy and daring...I think it's that combination that I appreciate most about Killer Queen.  If I were rating this fragrance among my favorites, I'd definitely say it's in the top ten, it's definitely one that all of you perfume loving ladies out there have to check out...I think you'll love it!
