Pop star Katy Perry launches her third fragrance and the first one done in cooperation with Coty. The scent is called Killer Queen after the song written by Freddie Mercury, and apparently it is totally different from its two predecessors.

Killer Queen has been in my vocabulary since I was 15, because of the song ‘Killer Queen’ by Queen,” said Perry to wwd. “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. I named my company Killer Queen after those lyrics. 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.”

KILLER QUEEN

Top notes: wild berries, plum, bergamot
Heart: celosia, jasmine, frangipani
Base: cashmere, patchouli, praline

Announced as a playful, sophisticated, powerful, edgy and delicious fragrance, it reflects the rebellious spirit of the singer. Its creation is signed by Laurent Le Guernec of IFF. Top notes include wild berries, dark plum and bergamot accords. The main note of the heart is velvety red flower (Celosia), but there are also Sambac jasmine and rainbow plumeria. The base contains cashmere, patchouli and liquid praline.


The bottle is shaped like a red ruby and comes in its own golden pedestal. The fragrance is available as 15, 30, 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum with body lotion and shower gel.

The bottle almost looks like a replica of Chopard's Wish/Brilliant Wish, but I like it. The color of the bottle also matches the notes perfectly in my opinion.
The notes are very appealing to me, so I am curious enough to give this one a sniff when I see it on the shelves...

I received it today.
The design is quite nice.
Mine came in a big velvet box with a key chain clip.

First impression:
Reminds me of Wonderstruck Enchanted with a little twist.
Of course it's fruity & floral, but it has also a slightly powdery velvetness to it.

So much, so far after a few minutes of wearing it.
Will test it over the course of the weekend.

I actually don't like the look of the ad. The dress and all of that deep, blood red (look tacky). But that's o.k. The bottle is really very pretty, the notes look good and I like her other perfumes so I look forward to testing this one in the stores. When will this finally hit the shelves?

Laurent Le Guernec also worked on fragrances for Mariah and Britney before, so why wouldn't he?

Just a few more days and I'll have my bottle of Killer Queen 8)
hopefully on Monday already, wish me luck.

Ive been underwhelmed with her other offerings............But that bottle is very kitsch and covetable , the notes sound OK if you like fruitchouli ( I do if they are done well and last on skin) . Im hoping its going to be an intense perfum and not wishy -washy "gone in 5mins" as many celeb scents are. Im hoping the plum note will give this a darker/stronger vibe then your standard fruity celeb juice.( I love the dark plum in original poison ). Prailene with fruit can be hit or miss though , if not balanced right.

The most promising titbit is that the nose is one whos worked for NIche house "Bond No9", Laurent Le Guernec . Thanks to Sculpture Of Soul for that info , as i would of never realised they had someone of that calibre working on a celeb fume....Must check this one out , I bet they release it just in time for Christmas here in the Uk :)

Love the bitchy gold metal talons too :)

Hmm. Celosia are beautiful flowers and used in potpourri for colour and texture...but they aren't scented. I wonder what they are referring to?

When I finally see a celeb release without berries, patchouli or candy sweets... Sigh again.

Looks like a much more mature/darker step forward for Katy Perry and the bottle design and overall theme/aesthetic is so dark and beautiful. I have to admit to being a little distracted by her fingernails above because they are just GORGEOUS. The perfume composition sounds nice but time will tell.

Cute bottle, it's similar to that of Wish by Chopard but I kind of like it (though the whole presentation looks a bit kitsch).
Well, as many others here I'm mostly interested on frangipani note in this scent.. I really hope this one will be widely sold here.
And thumbs up for the little sized bottles, the 15 ml must be lovely to see!

Killer Queen would only buy her perfume from Paris, not from Cody U.S of A. Just saying!

The bottle, presentation, and marketing, all seem to convey a kind of Lady Gaga cum Dita Von Teese aura.

I feel badly that this young star wasn't advised to back something a trifle more individual and unique.

Even so, the bottle is not by any means ugly, and fruitchouli lovers will have another ( hopefully interesting! ) scent to love.

The fact that the nose is Laurent Le Guernec (he's done many of my favorite Bonds, including all the NY series and Harrods scents) has me interested in this one.

I really like the sound of this one, just hope it isn't too sweet and there's enough florals and patchouli to make it interesting. The bottle is gorgeous too and it will probably be inexpensive...can't see what's not to like :-)

I appreciate how humble and sincere she is as she cites a song by Queen as her inspiration. You can tell she's passionate about it.

So, it does come with that golden pedastol? I'm sure it won't look as nice as that one :(. You can kinda see where the real one ends in the picture. I dunno which I'm excited for most! Mrs Carter Heat, this or Rogue! :)

For a perfume inspired by 'Killer Queen' I thought it might take note from the lyrics in the song and incorporate or use, champaign, cake, caviar, tabacco, or gun powder. Have to wait and see if this is guaranteed to blow my mind.

What is it with 'celebrities' and sweet, syrupy berries?
I haven't tested this fragrance so I can't make an accurate comment. But at least by the notes it looks as if this is another heavy, super sweet/berry fragrance. wild berries, plum, frangipangi, jasmine and if that is not enough, add praline!

I agree, wow the bottle is beautiful and I love the regal theme to the whole marketing idea. I love the ombre red coloring and can't wait to get this one for fall, as I'm hoping the berries and plums darken it a bit.

Berries and Frangipani sound wonderful.
Jasmine and Plum not on contrary.
Coty seems serious about making it this year's "it" fragrance.
We'll see if it's another improvement over Meow!
