Katy Perry's Killer Queen perfume is worth a 'Roar'

Katy Perry's Killer Queen perfume


Use it as a weapon or as a jazzy decorative item for your dresser. Either way, the bottle for Katy Perry's Killer Queen perfume is everything you would imagine from the pop diva. The only downside is it doesn't stand up on its own, but the red "scepter" perfume bottle is almost worth the purchase all by itself.

Initially the fragrance is a bit strong. Slightly flowery. Formal. For the mature woman.

The top notes include dark plum, wild berries and bergamot. The middle notes include red velvet flower, rainbow plumeria and natural jasmine sambac. The bottom notes include cashmeran, natural patchouli heart and liquid praline.

This perfume is a hate it or love it fragrance, but definitely worth checking out. The top notes are cringeworthy, but give it a chance because the bottom notes are what counts, and this one gets better the longer it's on your skin. I went from hating it to pondering on purchasing it. Chances are high that I will eventually do the latter.
