Katy Perry Purr Perfume | Smell Like Katy Perry's Cat
You know you've made it when people don't just want to look like you, they also want to smell like you. These days every celebrity worth a franchise has their own scent, and Katy Perry is no exception to the rule. Come November, we'll all be able to purchase Katy Perry's 'Purr' Perfume, which will come in a bejeweled bottle shaped like a kitty and be scented with peach, apple and bamboo. (An Asian inspired nasal salad, for want of a better description.)
Katy Perry explained that her foray
into perfumes from a singing career was totally different from other
singers, like Britney Spears, Beyonce Knowles, Avril Lavigne,
Ashanti, Faith Jill, Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake, Jessica
Simpson, Cliff Richard, Shania Twain, Michael Jackson, Prince,
Luciano Pavarotti, Jennifer Lopez... (you get the idea, the list goes
on, and on, and on.) But Katy's point of difference is that she
really was seized with the desire to make a perfume not because of
the ludicrous amounts of money it would make her, but because she has
a real love for smelling things.
"It wasn't just like, 'I love gardenias.' That would have been the easy route. I really wanted to develop a scent that was completely unlike anything I'd smelled before and not one that smelled like a knockoff of another scent. I'd never want to do anything 'just because'..." Katy said to Women's Wear Daily.
We can't really judge Katy for jumping on the perfume bandwagon. Who among us here would not leap at the chance to be immortalized in scent? Who among us would not be flattered by the idea that there are other human beings out there willing to pay good money to smell sort of like we say we might smell? Precisely. I mean, we needed more perfume anyway, right? Perfume is an important part of everyday fashion. The right perfume can bring smiles, open doors and lead to world peace. The wrong perfume will cause you to end up destitute in a gutter somewhere, so I'm glad to hear that Katy took the process seriously.
Give it another year or two, a marriage (and perhaps divorce, because divorce is so in right now) to Russel Brand and there will probably be a pin-up fashion line available from Katy Perry as well. Because, once again, there's no point being a famous person if you can't use your power and influence to sell things to people.
