Katy Perry introduces Purr

Wednesday, 5 October 2011

It would seem you’re not a ‘real’ celeb until you launch your own perfume and this month sees the launch of pop star Katy Perry’s new fragrance, Purr. (I got to attend the launch last month and you can read about it over here).

Gotta say, the uber-kitsch bottle’s kinda grown on me.

According to Katy, her feline-focused scent was inspired by her love of cats. (She’s appeared on stage dressed as Catwoman and often talks about her beloved cat, Kitty Purry).

As for the scent itself, Purr is a fruity floral blend that makes use of notes like peach, apple, jasmine blossom, rose, vanilla orchid, sandalwood and musk.

Want to give Purr a sniff? Look out it in selected Stuttafords, Edgars, Foschini and Truworths stores nationwide. The price starts at R395 for a 30ml bottle.
