Katy Perry Purr Eau de Parfum
Advantages: smells great, amazing bottle, smell lasts all day, bottle lasts for ages
I'd never really been a perfume girl, I found them to be a waste of money really, especially the celebrity ones as they just seem to make them as a means for more money and the bottle always looks tacky. However when I heard Katy Perry was making one I was very interested as she's a pretty kooky celebrity (and I have a massive girl crush on her).
When the design of the bottle was released I decided I had to buy it, even it smelt horrible because it was in the shape of a cat! (I have four cats and will be the crazy cat lady from the Simpsons when I am older), plus it was purple, my favourite colour. Katy Perry has a cat herself called 'Kitty Purry' too which probably was the inspiration for perfume. I wasn't too impressed with the photo that accompanies this perfume though as I don't really like the full body latex suit Katy wears on the front even though she still looks amazing.
So I was bought the perfume for Christmas, it was about £30-£40 for 50ml from The Perfume Shop, my mum MADE me smell it before she bought it as she didn't want to waste the money. I'm not very good at describing smells so I'll post the description...
'The fragrance is a rich eau de parfum which opens with a fresh citrus accord of peach nectar and forbidden apple to awaken the senses. It develops into a delicate floral bouquet supported by notes of jasmine blossom and pink freesia and dries down into a rich, luxurious scent rich with vanilla orchid and sandalwood.'
Reading that, it sounds like it's going to have too many smells to be nice and would put me off. However it's a girly, sweet but quite sexy smell and I very much like it, it isn't a typical floral smell either which can be very overpowering and heavy, it's fresh and modern with a twist. Plus I can still smell it on my skin at the end of the day, not as strong of course and I would apply another spray if I was going out again.
The packaging was nice and simple, a square purple box inside another silver box with a cardboard cover featuring the picture of Katy Perry dressed as latex body suited cat playing with string and looking sexy as usual, giving the buyer connotations of a 'sex kitten' I guess?
The bottle itself is quite stylish and well designed, you would think a cat shaped perfume bottle would look naff but I can assure you it doesn't! It is made from translucent purple glass and the lid is what gives it the distinctive cat features, ears and silver jeweled eyes with a slightly pointed nose, the actual bottle is really well ergonomically designed too as it fits in my hand perfectly and comfortably, it has a raised pattern at the back for the tail. The 'cat' has a silver collar and heart tag with the name of the perfume 'Purr' inscribed on it. Katy Perrys name is written in sliver above the sliver bottom of the bottle.
So if you are a KatyCat (one of her obsessed fans), love cats and the colour purple this perfume is definitely for you! I've had this perfume since Christmas and I am currently about half way through the bottle, although I haven't used it everyday. Obviously try out the smell instore before you buy because everyone's smells smells differently but most people who have smelled me wearing this have loved it!
This year for Christmas, I am asking for her new perfume called 'Meow' which is the same except it is a pink colour !
Summary: A great fun, flirty smelling perfume that lasts all day
