We HAVE To Say Something About Katy Perry’s New Perfume

Could her signature scent be the reason the unspecified gentleman thinks she’s pretty without any makeup on? Katy Purry/Perry may have over-the-top taste in performance outfits, but she’s proven to have purr-fect taste in perfume packaging. Can you even HANDLE so many feline funnies? You CAN’T. But seriously, in our off-hours from Buzzworthy, we nurture a serious proclivity for products. And we’ve assessed that a fair statement about beauty items overall in 2010 is that cats are having a major moment. And kudos to Katy Perry for getting involved with that niche of the industry and, in the words of the great LL Cool J, doing it and doing it WELL. Not bad for Katy’s first foray into fragrance.

Katy Perry’s new perfume, Purr by Katy Perry, is housed in an absolutely adorable bottle shaped like a futuristic purple cat rocking a heart-charmed collar. The cat’s face is reminiscent of a feline Eve, as in WALL-E’s robotic pal. The quirky-cute bottle’s vibe is congruent with that of Katy herself: It’s a little teenage dream mixed with cool California gurl.

The fragrance starts with the aroma of peach nectar and apple, evolves with a distinct floral bouquet of jasmine blossom, Bulgarian rose and vanilla orchid, and slowly reveals accents of creamy sandalwood and musk. Or so we’re told. A saccharine-sweet overlay on a seriously sexy foundation? What’s more Katy Perry than that? We can’t wait to spray ourselves silly with it.

Purr by Katy Perry, hits shelves shortly at Nordstrom and will retail for $45 and up. And if you’re lucky enough to be in New York City, you can catch up with Katy Perry’s Purr Truck. Follow Katy Perry on Twitter to see where the truck stops, and watch Katy Perry’s Purr launch on KatyPerryBeauty.com.
