Katy will release Purr, inspired by her love of cats. (To be fair, we do love crazy cat ladies and this makes us love Katy Purry even more!) It will reportedly come in a perfume bottle shaped as a cat that even has jeweled eyes. WWD reports it will smell like peach, apple, jasmine, freesia, and musk. How much will it cost you to smell like Katy? $36! It will be available at Nordstrom stores this November.
“All things edible for me are also intriguing. So if there are little dancing strawberries, I will be happy. Peppermint is cute; cotton candy is adorable. We like to keep it cute and classy,” Perry told WWD about the new perfume. “I am a product whore. I am a consumer of a multitude of beauty products and I’m always looking for the next great thing.”
So, is Katy a fan of other celeb fragrances? “I’m not embarrassed to say that I went out and bought [Beyoncé Knowles’ first scent] Heat and Kim Kardashian’s scent earlier this year,” she shared. “I’ve worn Clinique Happy, Ralph Lauren’s Romance and Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle. My sense of smell is so important to me. A guy can walk into an elevator wearing Acqua di Gio, and I’m immediately like ‘You’re my first boyfriend.’ I want my fragrance to have that effect on people.”
What do you think of Katy launching her own perfume? What about the fact that it’s inspired by cats?
