From the moment I opened the package and the sweet scent of this fragrance touched my face, I was hypnotized. I love it so much that it has bumped my all-time favourite for many years into second place. For me, this scent epitomises what a woman is... sweet, funky, delicious, beautiful and strong.

The scent brought back memories of a scent I have loved before, but adds a new spin on it. It is fresh and alluring; it makes me feel like a woman!

The scent lasts quite a while on my skin and I feel like a queen on my grand parade while wearing it. I could easily own the throne with this emanating from me.

The top notes are dark plum, wild berries and bergamot - they are such a great combination. If you close your eyes, you can smell each of these scents in just the right amounts.

The heart notes are floral and comprise red velvet flower, rainbow plumeria and jasmine sambac - these are also a great combination and seeing as every woman is as delicate, beautiful and soft as a flower, these floral scents go a long way to bring out those characteristics.

The base notes are cashmeran, patchouli heart and liquid praline - all of which provide that funk, playfulness and slightly rebellious traits that most of us women have lurking just beneath our beautiful skin.

This is a winner in my books. I honestly feel that Katy Perry has done justice with this scent in that it reflects her style completely.

The bottle is a red ombre gem shape and is so beautiful and unique. Again, it reflects the theme of being a queen on your throne.

Go Katy Perry! This gorgeous scent is going on my Christmas wish list.

Killer Queen Spring Reign

Katy Perry has done it again...... Just when you thought you had heard the last of Killer Queen, she surprised us all with a new side called Spring Reign, the perfect spring fragrance for a flower in bloom.

I had the priviledge to sample this latest creation in the Killer Queen range and I was simply bowled over. Its new for Katy but its an incredible addition to the already fantastic killer queen collection.

The shape of the bottle is still the sample but the colour is pale pink. The fragrance spells fresh, spring, new life, simply floral. A beautiful flower that captures the essence of a new beginning, coming out into the world for the first time.

I simply loved it. I had to spray on a few drops on my wrist just to capture the beauty of killer queen. I think this fragrance is very different from the other two simply because its a different feel altpgether. Its very floral with gentle petals of violets, gardeniia, maybe even a little vanilla which reminds you of flowers in bloom.


It really lasts the whole day but, this is what I have come to expect from the Killer Queen range.

Well done Katy, this fragrance is what we have been waiting for in Spring

Katy Kills It Again!

I am utterly in love with this fragrance! The best part about it is that it has a playful fresh smell which is great for the day yet sensual undertones which makes it perfect for a nihht out. The main overtones are cashmeran, patchouli heart and liquid praline which gives it a very enderstated chocolatey smell. This is the first perfume ever that I have splurged on and bought an entire 100ML bottle and that just proves how fab it is!

Transforming into a queen

I was lucky to be selected as a reviewer for this amazing perfume! When I opened my box to find this amazing fragrance which I have never before that day smelt or noticed. But with the first spritz on to my wrist I instantly fell in love with that smell it took me to another world! A world of royalty where I was the queen. This fragrance transforms you into the queen in your own world and in those of the people around you with just one smell everyone around me was taken to another world of their own where they all could imagine being the queen. This fragrance has 5 key notes which is very prominent and devine together. The first note was a sweet note combined with a fruity woody scent complimented with patchouli and white floral. These notes are amazing together and create an ambiance like none other. I put this perfume to the test for about 2 weeks before writing my review, I enquired about price and have come to 1 conclusion " I'M IN LOVE". At only R495 for a 50ml it is ridiculously cheap compared to the quality and scent of it. It is long lasting and draws everyones attention to saying "WOW you smell nice". Now that brings me to the bottle it is absolutely gorgeous with this stunning ombre effect in the glass with the red standing out to make a statement with it looking like a queen's septa crystal it is out of this world, the only thing that they should think of brining in is a septa stand to hold the bottle to look beautiful and show off because with the sharp crystal like point it is slightly impractical as one doesn't have a way to store it safely as it can be knocked which causes it to roll too easily. My overall decision however of this perfume is that it is a stunning buy and will be a great gift when looking for a perfume for a girlfriend, sister or even mother. It's not too strong neither to subtle it is PERFECT.

Powerful and Edgy

One thing about Katy's fragrances is the design of her perfume bottles, they are so pretty, they can double as a decoration on your dressing table! The perfume itself is a bit heavy and smells really sweet, more for night time wear. The scent lasts really long. I love that it has notes of Jasime as that is my husband's favourite flower.

This perfume was released and marketed as follow: " Killer Queen was described as a playful, sophisticated, powerful, edgy and delicious fragrance, that reflects the rebellious spirit of the singer" (Wikipedia) I do agree that it is a powerful and edgy scent. I would recommend testing this perfume at the store, maybe even more than once, before purchasing it.

Perfume Notes:
Top notes ~ wild berries, dark plum and bergamot
Heart notes ~ velvety red flower (Celosia), but there are also Sambac jasmine and rainbow plumeria.
Base notes ~ cashmere, patchouli and liquid praline

Killer Queen by Katy Perry

When I first saw Killer Queen by Katy Perry I was immediately intrigued wondering if the same power in the name would also be found in the fragrance. Would I also smell like a ‘killer Queen’? Having men gaze upon me as I ‘power-walk’ down the street like in the ad for the fragrance Men Will Melt. Although that didn't happen (mainly because I don’t know how to ‘power-walk’, yet and secondly I have been writing exams for the past two months so the only walking I did was into the exam room and into bed) I was still not at all disappointed with the fragrance.

Its top notes of yummy wild berries, juicy dark plum and bergamot accords give it a delicious fruity scent. The main note of the heart is velvety red flower (Celosia), but Sambac jasmine and rainbow plumeria are also included there. The base contains cashmere, patchouli and liquid praline which give it that give it a touch of maturity in the overall scent. These all combine to produce a smell that is absolutely amazing, sweet but not sickeningly sweet. It reminds me of Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf which is a definite pro since it I one of my favorite fragrances.

Now back to the name, Katy Perry named her third fragrance Killer Queen after the song written by Freddie Mercury also called killer queen which describes a powerful women who can captivate a room when she walks in. continuing in the theme of royalty the bottle’s shape is Inspired by a Queen’s scepter, the jewel-shaped bottle portrays sexy sophistication and luxury topped with royal gold crown cap showcasing Katy Perry’s crest. The only negative thing about this fragrance is its staying power. It lasts for plus/minus 5 hours which is alright if you are planning on carrying the gorgeous but big bottle everywhere you go for touch ups for when the smell fades. Finally I would thank BeautyBulletin for this incredible opportunity.

Killer Queen Fragrance by Katy Perry

This was a very fun secret to keep. I had an idea of what it was because the very first review I wrote for BB was a secret too! The secret was The new fragrance from Katy Perry Fragrances called Killer Queen. I have not had an opportunity to test out her previous fragrances but this one made a good first impression on me. It smells delicious, like a summer dessert; lots of fruity/floral top notes (dark plum, berry, Jasmine and bergamot) with a warm chocolatey base(liquid praline), an interesting combination for me.The bergamot in the top notes provided a familiar scent, turns out the very first fragrance I reviewed had bergamot top notes too. Also I found out that DUCHESS CATHERINE duchess of cambridge uses a fragrance made by long-standing royal perfumeries that has notes of Jasmine.

The packaging design and bottler are beautiful and capture the essence of royalty quite well. It reminded me of a red cape I often see royalty wearing in Disney films i.e. Snow White (it reinforces the idea that the fragrance is fit for a queen). The bottle has a diamond shape ; it made me think of the crowned jewels. The marketing and design team clearly did their research which assures me that If I buy the fragrance I would be buying a quality product.It really is a charmingly playful scent for charming and playful ladies.

The fragrance is available at selected outlets such as Clicks, Dis-Chem,Edgars Foschini and Miladys. As far as I know there is a special launch offer for a gift set at Edgars.

Katy Perry's Killer Queen Fragrance

If you were let in on a huge secret, a secret that not everyone ought to know yet, how would you feel? Well of course you would feel like royalty. And what if that secret was for a perfume so great, they had to call it "Killer Queen", wouldn't you be ecstatic?

Well I was, I was so ecstatic to be chosen as part of the Killer Queen review club. I received a sample size and I fell in love with the scent I had to get the full size fragrance. Which by the way is not expensive at all. The fragrance retails at around R375 for a 30ml.

This is the 3rd fragrance from Katy Perry and she has gone from feline to royalty with this remarkable scent. She chose the name of the scent Killer Queen because of the song sung by the great band Queen called "Killer Queen".

The most significant 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.

The bottle is unique like herself and shaped like a red ruby. It also and comes in its own golden pedestal as the bottle does not have a flat base to stand on its own. The bottle can also be seen as part of the royal scepter that Katy carries around in the videos. The fragrance is available as 15, 30, 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum with body lotion and shower gel.

I love this perfume and I definitely think you should give it a try!

Katy Perry EDP Killer Queen Natural Spray

“She's a Killer Queen
Gunpowder, guillotine
Dynamite with a laser beam
Guaranteed to blow your mind
Anytime

Recommended at the price
Insatiable in appetite
Wanna try?”

These are the famous words of the song Killer Queen sung and performed by the Legendary QUEEN!!!

Katy Perry introduces her third perfume- a regal scent with an intoxicating and charmingly playful mix of notes fit for royalty! This time, her perfume has teamed up with power brand Coty and was named after QUEEN’s hit song.

This perfume was meant to be strong, powerful, regal; something that captivates an audience! 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.
The bottle is simply amazing!!! Shaped like a red ruby and comes in its own golden pedestal. From the lid to the tip, the bottle oozes confidence and regality. The perfume is a beautiful golden hued rich red that illuminates with golden hues from every angle, almost like it alight. The fragrance is available as 15, 30, 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum.

On application, the sweet scent is emitted, radiating through the surrounding areas. At first, the scent is sickly and an annoyance but it soon dissipates into a sweet and playful bouquet of florals. I personally think a crisper, clean and much refined flower would’ve brought in all the other sweet scents and would’ve given the scent a more complete aroma.

After a mere 30min I could no longer smell the perfume at all and was rather disappointed as this scent does not come cheap at all! I have to say that the bottle leaves a grandeur impression than the perfume scent itself.

I am a huge, major fan of queen and have listened to their song Killer Queen whilst growing up, when I saw the ad for Katy’s perfume I was so curious and intrigued as to what the scent could be as the lyrics to the song had my impression booked. I was expecting something more sophisticated and demure but demanding and sexual all at the same time. I imagined a woman draped in silk with a glorious crown on her long shiny tresses sitting on her throne like Sharon Stone style ala-basic instinct daring to look at a room of men with intent. Instead I get a ‘pop’ queens rendition of an all time classic. Although Katy’s third try at perfume, I would caution that she still has some growing up to do. The scent is quiet im-mature and doesn’t really deserve the title of Killer Queen, something be-fitting her like Pop Queen would be far more appropriate.

Katy Perry Killer Queen

When I received my sample fragrance I was quite shocked. It was the first time I have received such a lovely gift. Immediately I sprayed some of it on me and was I taken on a trip. I could make out all the subtle scents that went into that fragrance. My fiance thought I smelled like a killer queen bee and it definitely gave me a self confidence boost. I am very stingy with my special perfume thus I only wear it on special occassions or if I need a boost. Thanx to katy perry's new frangrance I love wearing it whenever I leave the house and it really does give me a self confidence boost. This frangrance is a defenitive must buy!

OK

Thanks very much to the BB ladies for selecting me to be part of the royal review club as everybody who knows me knows that I take inspiration from Queen B from gossip girl so I was over the moon to be part of the royal secret as I felt it was most appropriate ?

The history of the fragrance:

Pop star Katy Perry launches her third fragrance and the first one done in cooperation with Coty. The scent is called Killer Queen by the song written by Freddie Mercury, and apparently it is totally different from its two predecessors. “Killer Queen has been in my vocabulary since I was 15, because of the song ‘Killer Queen’ by Queen,” said Perry to wwd. “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 named my company Killer Queen after those lyrics. 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.” Announced as a playful, sophisticated, powerful, edgy and delicious fragrance, it reflects the rebellious spirit of the singer. Its creation is signed by Laurent Le Guernec of IFF. The tag line is “own the throne”, and the scent is supposed to be powerful, edgy and sophisticated.
The bottle
The bottle is shaped like a red ruby and comes in its own golden pedestal. The fragrance is available as 15, 30, 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum with body lotion and shower gel. The best feature of all katy’s fragrances is the beautifully designed bottles which I really enjoy. This one in particular with the ruby shape and gold pedestal really sums up royalty.
The scent
Top notes include wild berries, dark plum and bergamot accords.
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.
While reading it it sounds like a really amazing combination with a lot of favourite notes which sums up it is in the category of a fruitchouli. But the scent it’s self didn’t really wow me. A lot of people so it smells exactly like Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb. That pretty much sums up Killer Queen: sweet fruit + a load of caramelized sugar + some very clean patchouli to darken things up.

Lasting power
The major downside is the lasting power which I find with all Coty fragrances I have tried, which is on the lower end for a floriental Eau de Parfum. After a couple hours, it’s just a sort of wan darkish musky thing which I don’t really like (think after scent of burnt plastic with a hint of musk).

Overall

I would maybe purchase this as an ornament for the bottle but I wouldn’t wear it

Killer Queen

i received a sample of this fragrance and i have to admit i didnt enjoy the scent. its too sweet and cloying for my liking. my friend however did like it so i suppose its not for everyone but more for those who like a sweeter and fruitier scent.

Katy Perry - Killer Queen Fragrance

I have to say that I wasn't sure if I'm going to like this perfume. The thing that stuck in my mind was the smell I got from so many celeb perfumes ....

The first time I used it I thought that the smell was to strong but after an hour it settled nicely and the smell was amazing. Every person that walked passed me, asked what It was and could not stop complementing how good it smelled on me.

I have to complement her on an amazing perfume, my Christmas wish just got longer!!!!!

Be Your Own Killer Queen like Katy

Fun, flirty, floral. Love the bottle design – but only saw pictures as sample is in normal tube.
Fragrance doesn’t last ( nor do most celeb ones these days ) but a small reapplication during the day works and you don’t have to add a ton nor very often. Its quite sweet but mixes in with your natural oils and I ended up liking it more than I thought.
Great Summer fragrance !

One thing I do worry about is the bottle - its is beautiful but I worry it will be something that will just roll off my shelf. It might have a stand, I havent seen the actual full product, but if it doesn it is a little anoying and I would worry it would break.

Love the advert, fun and bold...very Katy Perry

Killer Queen by Katy Perry

The perfume comes in a regal red and gold bottle that resembles a queen's crown and sceptre in one. The bottle reminds me of those medieval potion capsules that queens use in fairytales. It is quite a pretty bottle and would be fun to display on your dressing table. Katy Perry was initially inspired by Queens Song Killer Queen that portrays a strong and powerful woman.

The perfume contains strong top notes of Dark Plum, Bergamot and Wild Berry with base notes of Liquid Praline, Casmeran and Natural Patchouli. The heart notes are Red Velvet Flower, Rainbow Plumeria and Natural Jasmin Sambac. On its initial spray the dark plum and wild berry notes come through very strong at first but fades out as the scent turns into the sweet red velvet flower scent.

I have to admit that I am not a fan of this perfume at all. The scent is quite musky, deep and dark at first but fades into a very overbearing sweet scent. It reminds me of cheap perfume that they sell at pharmacy stores. It smells like something from my grandma's toiletry bag, musky yet sweet. With many celebrity fragrances out there, this one is as generic as the rest. There is nothing that sets this scent apart. It definitely smells similar to Lady Gaga's Fame fragrance but has a darker undertone. I won't be rushing out to buy it.

Thumbs down from me!

Katy Perry's Killer Queen

"I don't do sweet fragrances" ...BUT...

I was on my way to a work meeting and decided to pick up my BB royal review product. I was overjoyed to find out that it was a fragrance when I opened it in the car, as I consider myself quite a fragrance connoisseur. So without thinking, I excitedly whipped it out it's wrapping and took a quick spray...and the first thought that came into my head as the invisible spritz particles hit my nose was "Wrong idea ash!" A confined space and Katy Perry's new spray do not mix. This was because I thought I could only possibly favor One type of fragrance. A very specific mix of long lasting, barely noticeable yet fresh, non-sweet fragrance. With that checklist in mind, the initial fruitiness of this perfume was too much for me at that moment.

So I got out the car, went to my meeting...and in that hour something magical happened! I got back in my car to realize the initially overpowering sweetness of Killer Queen had transformed into a beautifully soft, pleasant, happy scent which I could not get enough of!

Needless to say I have been using it ever since! Now my Guess, Issey, DKNY, Bulgari, Valentina's (the list goes on) can't compare! My usual routine of using a new fragrance each day to match my mood has been erased because the choice is no longer necessary. I am so glad I got the opportunity to test this Royal product before it hit the shelves! I'm definitely going to try my best to use it sparingly but I'm pretty sure I know what my next fragrance purchase is going to be :) :) who knew celebs could make awesome scents too?!

Strong Fragrance for Strong Women

From the moment I sprayed it on my wrist I was overwhelmed by the scent of sweet vanilla, very similar to Hypnotic Poison. I did not experience the "fruity" part of the fragrance, although it was very sweet. I know I keep repeating the word sweet, but that sums up the perfume for me. After the third time I let my boyfriend smell my wrist, he refused to smell again and said it was too much! It took a while for the scent to settle to middle and base notes. The middle note was still a bit overpowering, but eventually it settled and a subtle (still a bit sweet) smell. I did not like the base note, but that is pure personal preference. It reminded me of a sweet version of a men's cologne. The downside for me, which I think other ladies will love, is that the smell seemed to last FOREVER! That always seem to happen if you don't like a smell. I won't be purchasing this perfume, but I do think that ladies who like strong fragrances will like this. I think it will be more of a winter scent, but opinions differ, so you might think it is awesome for summer!

I do give it four stars though, even though I did not like it as I think it will be a popular fragrance amongst the ladies.

Royal Scent

When I first used this perfume, I was extremely overwhelmed by the smell. It was sweet and a little bit flowery. It's not a scent that I'm used to.
During the day, it faded into the middle notes which smelt a lot like berries. The end note lasted until the next morning and I can say I definitely feel the liquid praline coming through. Waking up in the morning smelling like I bathed in a bottle of delicious is certainly something I could get used to!

After wearing it a few times, I became used to the top note to the point that I now love it! Sephora describes it as a 'floriental' scent and in my opinion, it fits the description perfectly. It's a delicious scent that earned me numerous compliments. It makes me feel confident, playful and a lot like a killer queen, for sure! ;)

"She's a Killer Queen..." Katy Perry's New Fragrance!

I have never tried a celebrity fragrance so I was over the moon when I saw we would be reviewing Katy Perry's new fragrance!

I was so attracted to the colours of the packaging... the red, gold and black... it definitely makes you think of royalty.
The first time I sprayed the perfume, I was a bit overwhelmed. The scent is extremely sweet and overpowering at first. My boyfriend wasn't too impressed either.
After a little while, the smell started to fade and we both agreed that it smelt A LOT better.
I found that even though it was overwhelming at first, then smelt amazing after awhile, it faded very quickly. Within about 4 hours the smell was almost completely gone.
I don't know if I'd purchase this perfume due to the scent not lasting long but I think this is going to be a hit with many fans! xxx

Smell like a Killer Queen

When I first received this fragrance, I loved that it was an eau de parfum, which means that the frangrance would linger a bit longer than an eau de toilette fragrance. I'm not generally a fan of celebrity fragrances because they usually smell like air freshener but this fragrance by Katy Perry is one of the best frangrances I've tried. It is a mixture of sweet fruity sexiness which still lingers hours after I've applied it. I applied it onto my wrists and neck. Note that I did not rub my wrists together as I wanted the frangrance to be strong, powerful and complete. I would definitely consider purchasing this frangrance because I would not mind smelling like a Killer Queen all day! :)

Royal Review: Killer Queen by Katy Perry

Killer Queen is pleasant and easy to wear, It has a distinct, elegant and sophisticated scent. It does tend to become a bit too strong when applied directly onto skin. What I like most about the fragrance is that it lasts for about 7 to 9 hours before it fades away. The powerful scent does indeed leave a lasting impression.

Royal Review: A fragrance for a Killer Queen

When I close my eyes, breathe in the scent and let it captivate my senses a clear picture is drawn delicately in the workings of my mind. I am in the heart of the Killer Queen, surrounded by tall, magnificent red velvet flowers, rainbow plumeria and natural Jasmine Sambac. Dark plums and wild berries are all to be seen and their aroma linger tirelessly in the air.

A fragrance of sweet, strong and flowery possession, Katy Perry's new perfume will leave a women feeling utterly most feminine, while keeping her scent refreshing - as if she were abounded in dozens of perfect flowers. This fragrance, as the name suggests, is made for an independent Killer Queen, which I believe any deserving female can be! It is effective and one of the best celebrity fragrances in existence that does not smell like a room/ toilet freshener.

This time Katy Perry certainly showed her ROAR and established the making of a unique, fun and loving spray!

Killer Queen by Katy Perry

Killer Queen a charming playful yet intoxicated scent will capture attention in a room.

Pop Star Katy Perry has launched her third fragrance Killer Queen. Katy who has been inspired by the song Killer Queen by Freddie Mercury to be the kind of woman that is strong, powerful and capture everyones hearts.

Killer Queen is an intoxicating floral with a hint of sweet scent that is fit for you royals. The ruby shaped bottle was designed to represent sophistication and luxury. While the gold crown cap captures Katy Perry's essence.

Some notes in the captivating scent include wild berries, dark plum, jasmine and cashmere to name a few.
The scent is bold but without that musky smell of the flower to it.

The bottle is unique and gives you the feeling of having a high end expensive perfume without the high end price attached to it. But it cannot stand on it's own though. The scent starts out like a floral scent with a hint of sweetness but smells darker later on. The scent in my opinion is better worn in the evening.

Killer Queen is worth exploring, so ladies when you're wearing your scent OWN THE THRONE!!!

Royal Review of Killer Queen

Seductive. Radiant. Royal! Killer Queen by Katy Perry is intoxicating and charming :) A playful florally fragrance with delicious notes fit for royalty. Inspired by a Queen's ornamental rod, the jewel-shaped bottle portrays sexy sophistication. The gold crown cap showcases a custom crest capturing Katy's playful essence.

I fell in love with this fragrance the second I got a whiff of it. And that love deepened when it touched my skin. It smells so edible, and I have received so many compliments wearing it that it makes me feel like a queen :) Royal indeed!

There was so much excitement about what the Royal Secret would be, and to be honest, when I opened my little envelope up and saw it was only a small fragrance tester, I was slightly disappointed. But that literally only lasted a few seconds, because as soon as I smelled the sample, I was completely won over.

I had been hunting for a new fragrance for a few months now because my previous one was finished and my boyfriend had told me it wasn't his favourite. So getting the chance to review this has been amazing because I have found my new scent.

Top Notes: Dark Plum, Wild Berry, Bergamot
Middle Notes: Natural Jasmine Sambac, Rainbow Plumeria, Red Velvet Flower
Base Notes: Cashmeran, Natural Patchouli Heart, Liquid Praline

It is sweet, but in a very delicious, yummy kind of way. Not too overpowering and not sickening. I was complimented while grocery shopping the day I got my sample.

The Jewel shaped bottle is fancy and original.

It lasts long, I could smell it on my skin hours after applying it, which is very important to me.

I am still trying to discover how much it is, but I am assuming it will be relatively the same price as Katy Perry's other fragrances. Red Square in Rosebank didn't have stock so I haven't been able to price it yet or buy a full bottle. I am hoping my sample lasts until I find one!

Normally I don't like fragrances from celebrities, but this one has definitely won me over.

I do feel royal while wearing it, however I think it's more a day scent than a night scent :) Oh, and boyfriend likes it too :)

Killer Queen by Katy Perry

I am not the biggest fan of celebrity perfumes, mainly because a lot of the time the perfumes are too sweet or powdery for my liking. I also find that they often do not last all that well throughout the day and the bottles can at times also be rather “cheap and nasty”. So when I received the Katy Perry Killer Queen perfume sample to test out I had rather low expectations.

First off, the image of the perfume bottle really caught my eye. The shape of the bottle makes me think of a magic potion bottle, however it is said to represent a red ruby which plays well into the royalty theme in an almost fairy tale like way. The perfume itself opens with top notes of Dark Plum, Wild Berry and Bergamot. This gives it a deep, dark sugar kind of scent that is heavenly. The heart of the perfume is Red Velvet Flower, Rainbow Plumera and Natural Jasmine Sambac that balances the sweet fruity smells with a delightful floral tone. The base notes are Casheran, Natural Patchouli Heart and Liquid Praline.

This perfume is perfect for Autumn evenings which is unfortunate timing for South Africa’s season, however it wouldn’t stop me from wearing it now. I also feel that this perfume is more suited for ladies in their 20s and 30s, which I personally love. Celebrity fragrances are usually created for the teen market and not for older markets.

I have been wearing the perfume for about a week now and find that it lasts relatively well. I am personally very happy that it lasts well throughout the day and by the evening it is hardly noticeable. If you want something that lasts well over 12 hours then this won’t impress you all that much.

This perfume strikes a beautiful balance between fruity, sweet and earthy. It is sophisticated and feminine. It is definitely a perfume I would consider purchasing a bottle of!
