The 28-year-old singer said the name of her new fragrance was inspired by a Freddie Mercury lyric.
According to The Gossip Wrap-Up:
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,” Perry told WWD.
“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,” she added.
Katy’s new fragrance, Killer Queen, has notes of wild berry, dark plum, bergamot, jasmine rainbow plumeria heart, cashmeran, patchouli and praline. The eau de parfum will retail in four sizes: 0.5 oz. (US$20), 1 oz. (US$39.99), 1.7 oz. (US$49.99) and 3.4 oz. (US$59.99).
Even if I didn’t want to buy a bottle of Katy’s new fragrance, the ad campaign alone would make me change my mind. It’s all kinds of fierce and gorge.
Will you be picking up a bottle?
