Latest posts by Christine Kent (see all)

So you must have listened to Katy Perry’s music before, perhaps on your way to school or even to work. I know I did. Gone are the days where I used to play Teenage Dream full blast in my mom’s car and have a dance party on my way to school. You know I had a Katy Perry obsession when even my mom knew every word to her songs. Those were the days!

Okay, but before I go on about my Katy Perry obsession, let me tell you a bit more about her. 

Katy Perry, real name Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, was born on 25 October 1984. As a teenager, Katy moved to LA and forged a career as a gospel singer. Her first album that was launched under her real name sold 5 million copies, crazy, right?

Katy Perry is an American singer, songwriter, businesswoman, actress, and philanthropist. And now she owns her own perfume too! Seriously, is there something this woman can’t do?

So we are now at the part of the article you have been waiting for. I want to share with you the Katy Perry Perfume Guide. Her debut fragrance, Purr, was launched in 2010, and can I say it is the cutest perfume ever! Let us get into a little more detail on this perfume.

I want to share with you the description that Katy Perry gave Cosmopolitan about the perfume, “It’s a gorgeous glass that has a kind of Ombre (burgundy-to-yellow) finish from the bottom to the top. I wanted it to be like you had a gem in your hand. A real prestigious, royal, rich thing to it. And since it has a theme that I love, I wanted it to have a crown nuance – but instead of going the complete crown route, I wanted to design my crest to be on top. I thought it was very symbolic of monarchy, royalty, and over-the-topness.”

My Opinion

Okay, so I know you are probably wondering what my favorite Katy Perry perfume is, and my answer is all of them! But I know this is not what you want to hear. So, if I need to narrow it down to choosing only one, it will be the Mad Potion Perfume. 

And the reason is that I love the vanilla cupcake scent. And I use 3 S’s to describe it. Sweet, sexy, and seductive. I love that I can spray it in the morning and can still smell it on my clothes at the end of the day. This is a scent that you need to try out!

Okay, but before we get to where you can buy these fragrances and the most frequently asked questions, I have something interesting to tell the Katy Perry fans out there. Katy Perry is obsessed with cats and has her cat called Kitty Purry, which is a play on words of her stage name, Katy Perry. If you could not understand why 2 of her perfumes are called Purr and Meow, maybe you do now.
